The origins of the Alpinestars brand tied closely to the beginnings of the motocross sport in Europe in the early 1960s. There was no special gear or apparel at the time that could help riders control their bikes better and feel safe and comfortable at the same time. One shoemaker and motorsports enthusiast from Northern Italy decided to change this situation and design special motocross boots that would protect the riders feet while being light enough to offer better comfort and control. Later he has created the design for enduro and off-road applications which also became a huge success.
Now, almost 60 years later, we see the Alpinestars logo on the suits and gear of the best drivers and riders in Formula One, MotoGP, Motocross, and NASCAR championships. The company offers a huge assortment of high-tech footwear, jackets, racing suits, protection gear, apparel, and much more. Today we would like to introduce some of the new arrivals in the Alpinestars catalog at MOTORCYCLEiD.com.
