Alpinestars Hyperlight, Drop and Manual Jersey and Shorts

Apparel Interbike

Alpinestars is a brand that is well known for quality, innovation and style. They have a huge following in the world of motorcycle road racing and I have personally owned several pairs of Alpinestars motorcycle boots and leather jackets for years. In the early 90′s, Alpinestars made several different bicycle products (from shoes and clothes to handlebars and even bikes) and back in the day, my favorite pair of mountain bike shoes were Alpinestars System 6′s.

Times changed, however, and Alpinestars got out of cycling completely (at one point) to focus on the moto side of their business. But the attraction and crossover appeal was too strong to stay away for long. Until very recently, gravity super star Greg Minnaar rode in Alpinestars apparel for years. We here at Mtbr recently tested their Manual Shorts and Drop Jersey and found their quality and comfort and fit to be truly superior.

For 2013, Alpinestars continues to innovate and create and expand. I was shown several new products for the coming year and it is obvious that they take the cycling game seriously. In this video, Nic Sims shows us some highlights including the Hyperlight Jersey and Shorts, the Drop Jersey and Shorts and the Manual Jersey and Shorts. Also shown are the Gravity Gloves and the Aero Gloves and more, all newly updated for 2013.

Alpinestars GP Tech Air - air bag equipped leathers

Probably the coolest non-MTB product I saw at Interbike had to be the super high tech Alpinestars GP Tech Air motorcycle road race leathers. The "Air" stands for air bag equipped. Could air bags work their way into Alpinestars DH/Gravity offerings? Time will tell.
