The new Tech-Air 10 becomes Alpinestars most comprehensive system, offering protection to the rider’s shoulders, chest, full back, and hips. It can be worn under any Alpinestars Tech-Air ready suit and also suits from any manufacturer that have 4cm space on the chest and 2cm at the hips.
The Tech-Air 3 is an over the jacket vest aimed at commuters and road riders. It can still be worn in all weathers and A-Stars say it’s designed to be lightweight and easily folded up for storage in a rucksack or under a scooter seat when not in use.
Finally, the Tech-Air Off Road V2 system has been updated following the firm’s experience in three years of Dakar racing.
No prices have been confirmed so far, but Alpinestars describe the Tech-Air 3 as an “entry level system, aimed at commuters predominantly”, so hopefully it will be economical enough to make it accessible to more riders tan previous systems.
