Alpinestars have been making top quality motorcycle kit since 1963 and are the choice of many of the world’s best racers, like Marc Marquez in MotoGP and John McGuinness at the TT.
The GP Pro leather jacket combines racing technology with with everyday comfort for road riders, so that it can be worn with leather trousers or biker jeans.
Made from 1.3mm full-grain leather, with external Dynamic Friction Shield (DFS) protectors on shoulders and elbows and advanced poly-textile accordion stretch inserts on back and elbows for a performance fit, the jacket’s racing pedigree is clear to see.
For road riding, the GP Pro is fitted with a 270 degree waist connection zipper, for attachment to Alpinestars’ riding trousers, has an extended lower back profile to prevent a gap between jacket and jeans, and reflective detailing for improved rider visibility.
CE-certified protectors to shoulders and elbows offer superior impact protection and an ingenious snap connection system allows a CE level 2-certified Nucleon KR-R Back Protector to be fitted, for ultimate protection.
MCN Senior Road Tester Michael Neeves covered 20,000 miles in his GP Pro, describing it as his “favourite black leather biker jacket” and, after 5 years use, reckons it will “easily go on for another 5 years”.
