Product review: Alpinestars Tech undersuit
Chief Road Tester Michael Neeves has been testing this Alpinestars Ride Tech kit for eight months now, here’s his thoughts on it…
Price Top £69.99 Bottom £69.99
What’s good? These A-stars two-piece thermals kept me warm over the winter. They’ve been light and easy to wear under leathers on road tests and track instructing and are perfect as a base layer under Gore-Tex gear. They’re warm and comfortable and because they’re not too thick they don’t make you feel like you’ve eaten two roast dinners when you wear them under your kit. Made from a sturdy-quality, seamless, elasticated polypropylene Dryarn material they’re reassuringly snug, but as they’re a compression fit they help support muscles to reduce fatigue. I’m a skinny six foot and unlike some undersuits, where the legs and arms are too short in a medium, these fit just right.
What’s not? The design won’t be to everyone’s taste and costing £139.98 for the set, they’re not cheap.
