Alpinestars 2022 Motorcycling Collection – Innovative Materials Technologies & Products Designed to Enhance Performance & the Overall Rider Experience.
Alpinestars first introduced MATRYX® with the Spring 2021 Collection with the launch of the Speed Force performance riding shoes. MATRYX® is a parametric material made of high tenacity polyamide yarns that is weaved with Kevlar®, monofilament, carbon and other organic elements. The main design benefit of MATRYX® is the ability to engineer the performance needed in a product to the exact location where the performance is needed. MATRYX® technology is also the perfect materials’ structure for advanced protective apparel and gives Alpinestars the opportunity to bring new, innovative protective garments to the every-day rider. Superior comfort, performance and premium protection has been designed into the new 2022 line with the introduction of the Fusion Leather Suit, the Fusion Jacket and the Missile v2 Ignition Leather Suit.
RIDEKNIT® is another fabric technology that has allowed Alpinestars to do unique advancements with motorcycle gear. Not only is Rideknit® lightweight, breathable, stretchable and durable, the core value of using Rideknit® is the ability to custom design strategic placement of the Rideknit® material in a garment where stretchability and comfort are needed most. When it comes to riding footwear, pants and jackets, Alpinestars has incorporated Rideknit® technology in many products.The Main 2022 line sees Alpinestars launching the Fusion Leather Suit and the Fusion Jacket which incorporate Rideknit® stretch paneling for enhanced flexibility and freedom of movement – a true innovation in riding gear.
The materials technologies and pioneering innovations incorporated in the new Alpinestars’ Main 2022 Collection will bring significant advancements to motorcycling, especially in the areas of protection, performance and comfort. For our 2022 Women’s Stella Line, Alpinestars has engineered the Missile v2 Leather Racing Suit to provide a dedicated women’s fit, optimised and anatomically designed for the female figure. With the Missile V2, now female riders can ride protected with a Tech-Air® Ready leather racing suit and in premium comfort.
