Alpinestars 2016 City Collection and Casual Wear | NEW PRODUCTS

You Live in the City, Play in the City…So Be Safe in the City

New for Alpinestars' 2016 Urban wear collection are three new gloves, five new denim pieces and three new shoes. Top to bottom, lets start with the handheld offerings.

C-20 Drystar Glove

As part of Alpinestars' City Collection, the C-20 Drystar Glove is their newest all-weather ride-everywhere glove. Waterproof, breathable, and thermally lined with Thinsuate, the leather-palmed C-20 includes a velcro-closed gauntlet and wrist cinch to keep the weather out. Ergonomically precut and curved to easily fit the rider, 4mm of EVA foam padding on the top of the hands and fingers provide a little more wind and knock protection. Leather accordion stretch inserts on the fingers allow for a freer movement when reaching for the levers, or the cellphone. Thanks to a touch-screen-compatible fingertip, looking for a warmer destination to ride is much more easily done in the C-20 glove. Available in 6 sizes, S to 3XL, the C-20 retails for $119.95.

If the ride stays local, but the winds are still blowing, perhaps the short-cuff city-minded C-1 Windstopper Glove is right for you. Slightly more aggressive, lighter, windproof, water-resistant and featuring a short knitted cuff, the C-1 is the right choice for the road.

C-1 Windstopper Glove

The Gore-Tex main shell, with over-molded hard knuckle, and a full-grain reinforced leather palm offer excellent abrasion and impact resistance. Also touch-screen capable, you’ll be able to easily communicate with your other Alpinestars-equipped ride mates via smartphone when not riding together. This easy-going city glove is available in 6 sizes from S to 3XL and retails for $89.95.

The C-1 Windstopper Glove is also available in the women’s Stella line, and offering the same build and protection quality in a product that was specifically designed, cut and fit to the female form. It is also available in six sizes from S to 3XL and retails for $89.95.

Below the belt, technically starting at the beltline, the Alpinestars City Collection introduces three new over-the-boot denim pieces for men and two new inner-boot designs for the ladies.

Riffs Denim
Crank Denim

The regular/comfort fit 13-ounce men’s Riffs Denim pant is ergonomically curved for the ride, includes adjustable CE-certified knee protection, accordion stretch inserts on the knee and seat area and DuPont Kevlar reinforcement in the seat, hip and knee areas. Removable 5mm hip pads offer further damage control and a welcomed thigh zipper allows for air intake and heat management (available only on the Riffs). The traditional 5-pocket design opens the lineup and is available in sizes 28-40 and retails for $299.95.

The Crank Denim pant includes all the same features of the Riffs but in a tapered fit and more technically-styled design. The inclusion of an interior aramid reinforcement layer to the pre-shaped legs offers greater abrasion resistance. They’re available in two colorways, sizes 28-40, and retail for $249.95.

Lastly, the Copper Denim pant is a regular/straight cut jean available in three colors and sizes 28-40, retailing for $229.95.

For the lady riders out there, Alpinestars took the same key features of their mens denim collection, like the internal knee compartment and adjustable CE-certified knee protection for various leg lengths and interior DuPont Kevlar-lined seat, hips and knees, and then threw away the moulds. All Alpinestars women’s products are designed, cut, and finished to fit a woman’s body, not scaled down versions of a man’s product with a pink sticker on them.

Daisy Women’s Denim

The Daisy Women’s Denim pant is a regular/slim cut 13-ounce jean offered in two color ways and sizes 24-34, with a retail price of $199.99.

The Riley Woman’s Denim pant includes greater abrasion and impact resistance thanks to the aramid fiber reinforcements included within. Custom rivets and leather detailing provide a deeper sense of style to these regular/slim cut jeans and are available in sizes 24-34 and retail for $239.95.

History & Style

Taking one further step down the fashion line, we find the new editions to the Alpinestars footwear collection. The dapper and waterproof Parlor Drystar shoe makes the everyday rider covert and protected, in style. This classy and timeless shoe features a full-grain leather upper, dual-density ankle protectors, reinforced toe box and heel counters and Alpinestars' exclusive oil-resistant rubber sole. Traditional lacing lends to the classic look, while the medial side zipper and leather covers provide easy mounts and dismounts. The Parlor Drystar is CE-certified and available in US sizes 6-13 for a suggested retail price of $179.99.

Rayburn Shoe

Stepping back in time toward Alpinestars’ 50 year (and counting) history, the Rayburn Shoe is introduced to the Oscar line for 2016. Retro in cafe style but up to date in safety features, the Rayburn includes a hand-finished full-grain upper, a gusseted tongue, padded achilles collar, dual-density TPU ankle protection, toe box and heel counter reinforcements, an internal sole shank and a replaceable insole all on top of Alpinestars’ exclusive oil-resistant rubber sole with a new grip pattern. CE-certified and available in sizes 6-14, with a retail price of $249.95.

Stadium Shoe

Lastly in the footwear department is the new Stadium Shoe. A flashy skateboard-style and casual riding sneaker (available in two color treatments) with TPU ankle protection and a 3D mesh lining with perforated panels for high airflow while on the ride. The padded tongue and traditional lacing make for a comfortable and tailored fit. Available in US sizes 6-14, the Stadium Shoe retails for $169.95.
