Product Review: Alpinestars Thermal Tech

Alpinestars Thermal Tech Top (£59.99) and bottoms (£49.99)

Tester: Michael Neeves

Time used: Six months/2000 miles

What’s good? These thermals were my saviour over the winter months. Constructed from ‘Warm Track’ fabric they’re only slightly thicker than a two-piece summer undersuit, so they fit nicely under race leathers, giving the room to move around, unlike bulkier winter thermals. But despite being comfy they keep me nice and toasty on cooler days. They’re a bit too warm for this time of year, but give it another six weeks and they’ll be perfect as they’re just the thing for spring and autumn trackdays. Also, two-piece thermals are better than one when you need to, er..relax in a local convenience.

What’s not? With two piece undersuits it’s easy for your back protector to gradually push your trousers down as you walk around in them.
