No, sorry, replica Lorenzo leathers are not part of Alpinestars’ 2016 apparel collection, but the company is inextricably linked to the sport by protecting many of its participants. Many safety developments available to the public originate from knowledge gained at the track. And the above photo is much tastier than a logo or a studio shot of a new jacket.
Safety tech in the form of Alpinestars’ Tech-Air, made available in Europe last Spring, is targeted for U.S. availability, but no hard date was given.

The entire line of new or updated apparel for 2016 from Alpinestars that will be available to consumers includes numerous items, which you’ll be able to see on the Alpinestars website Monday.

New and updated performance riding gear includes Atem one- and two-piece leathers ($1499 and $1299, respectively), Atem leather jacket ($799), Celer leather jacket ($649), Missile leather pants ($399), and Supertech R boots ($499).
