Testing Alpinestars MX gear

I tested this Alpinestars MX gear over three months, covering 260 miles.

Here's how I got on with their Braap pants (£85.99), jersey £25.99 and Radar Tracker MX gloves (£21.99)...

What’s good?

Most MX gear is more about looking and keeping cool than actual protection, which is generally achieved by the array of under armour available. The latest offering from Alpinestars is focused on comfort and it certainly delivers.

I used this kit for the KTM fuel-injected two-stroke model launch at Erzberg, the location of the famous extreme enduro, and the comfort and cooling properties were the top of my wish list. With pre-curved legs, stretch panels and air vents they are incredibly comfortable. The same can be said for the gloves, which are also pre-curved, fit superbly and give great rider feel thanks to the single layer Clarino palm.

What’s not good?

There’s virtually no protection. They’re also a bit costly.
