Why not follow one carbon fiber post with another? Only this time I am talking about carbon fiber that you can wear! Alpinestars has a pullover fleece hoodie that features their famous “a star” logo adorned in carbon fiber. Ok, it probably isn’t real carbon fiber but it still looks pretty damn fresh and for roughly 45 bucks the price isn’t half bad either.
If you know me then you know I pretty much hate the iPhone in all its forms, but even I can recgonize a cool iPhone 4S case when I see one. If you happen to own the so-called “Jesus Phone” and you do not have a case to protect it yet I would suggest the Tech 10 case from Alpinestars. The design is pretty cool and it is made from high-grade sillicone so your precious hipster device-err I mean phone will be protected from harm. This case will work with both the iPhone 4 and the 4S so you early adopters need not worry.

If you’re trying to break into motorsports or you are just running at a really high amature level, chances are you are going to need a racing suit, unless you like the idea of you burning to a crisp should the unthinkable happen. Either way most organizations won’t even let you run without a nomex suit. The problem is that the good ones are expensive, especially the suits that actually look good in addition to performing well. Luckily for you Alpinestars has an option for the race car driver on a budget with their GP-T Suit. You get dual layer nomex with a nomex mesh and a style similar to their more expensive suits but the GP-T only tips the scales at $799 which isn’t bad when you consider the top of the line stuff is almost double that!
There are a lot of drivers out there who like to bare-hand it when it comes to track days and such but sometimes you just can’t avoid wearing gloves. For such situations the new Alpinestars Tech 1-S glove might be a good way to go. They have two layers of nomex plus fire-resistant leather on the palm for reinforcement. Plus they look pretty cool! They are a bit pricey at 140 bucks but hey, you get what you pay for. I’d rather pay extra and not have my hand burn off should I get into a fiery crash, wouldn’t you?
If you can’t quite afford to get yourself a set of Alpinestars Tech 1-k racing shoes you can start off with this awesome keychain. It is an exact, scaled down replica of the famous Tech 1-k that we all know and love. It looks like a nice little conversation starter and it’s only 5 bucks! Fresh..
If you are serious about a racing career or even just a hard core track day guy at some point you will probably need to pick yourself up a racing suit. Luckily Alpinestars just dropped a new suit today that is perfect for budget racers. The new Alpinestars SP Suithas two layers of nomex protection and still features the flexible lower back piece found on the pricier suits. The total damage to the wallet is only $600 which is a steal! After you win your first race then maybe you can step up to the Supertech suit.

I know this is more of a car site than motorcycle site but some of the bike stuff out there is just too damn cool to not mention. Especially the bike goods made by Alpinestars. They are in full swing with their new Tech Touring line and they’ve released some behind the scenes videos to show the thought process and philosophy behind what they have created. Below is the third part in their series and focuses specifically on their goods that are tailor made for sport touring. Don’t know what sport touring is? Well that is just another reason to watch the video since they explain that as well! Happy viewing…
