Review: Alpinestars Racing Replica suit

Alpinestars Racing Replica suit £1799

Michael Neeves

Miles covered/time
A season’s racing/14 months

What’s good?
I came away unscathed after a 4th gear, 120mph crash at Thruxton, the fastest I’ve ever had. The track surface there is like course-grade sandpaper and it trashed the suit, unsurprisingly wearing through a lot of the leather and some of the stitching. Astars leathers and body armour has once again saved me from injury, which is why I always wear them for racing and road testing.

What’s not?
The Price, and like most race leathers there’s a material stretch panel, not leather on the inner thigh area. This quickly wore through and took the skin off this part of my leg.


Four stars
