Alpinestars has roots in Motocross and motorcycling spanning six decades. The company that brought "legendary innovation" was founded in 1963 by Sante Mazzarolo in Asolo, Italy. Alpinestars got its start with hiking and ski boots but just 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 made significant headway in safety with the innovative Tech Air Race Suit which contains a 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.
Today, the Alpinestars gear line covers street riders and dirt bikes from head to foot. Alpinestars boasts a popular following in the Motocross community and has some of the best reviewed motorcycle riding gear. Those who ride know Alpinestars and their popular line of protective gear include the following:
