Alpinestars are one of the older clothing companies in the motorcycle game with a company history dating back to 1963, before motorcycle and racing became really fashionable. The company still maintains its headquarters in Asolo in Italy today, where the company founder Sante Mazzarolo first went into business. Alpinestars as a company is actually named after the Stella Apina, a flower which grows in the mountains nearby.
Alpinestars jackets are constructed from the newest innovations in protective fabric, are designed for 4-season wear, have protective shoulder padding and venting throughout. There are several motorcycle jacket options for every style of riding and conditions.
“It Costs More Than Most, But You Get Much More Than The Rest”
This is one of Alpinestars’ top of the range touring jackets.
It’s not cheap, but it does come with a lot of features that make it ideally suited for long distance touring. It is both a stylish and a very practical jacket. Motorcyclists whose riding is predominantly touring have higher expectations from their gear.
Extremes in weather are almost a given when on tour. Alpinestars have developed the Durban touring gear with this in mind.
