Sante Mazzarolo founded Alpinestars in 1963 in Asolo, Italy first making hiking and ski boots. Two years later the company introduced its first motorcycle boot - it included an innovative steel shin protector and a buckle closure system rather than laces.
A decade later, Alpinestars marketed protective boots featuring toe sliders and enhanced levels of protection for the motorcycle road racing circuit giving the company a loyal following. In the 1990s, Alpinestars rolled out additional protective gear including gloves, jackets and full leather suits.
In 2011, Alpinestars unveiled perhaps the most innovative line of protection ever seen by the motorcycle world. Popular Science magazine gave the company a "Best of What's New" award for the Tech Air Race Suit. Available to the public, the Tech Air Race Suit is a state-of-the-art fully functional airbag system. The technology Alpinestars created monitors the rider's movements and determines when a crash is imminent and deploys airbags along the shoulders and collarbone in milliseconds.
