Alpinestars Carver Leather Suit Overview
2011 Alpinestars Carver Suit
Based on its MotoGP experience with World Champion Jorge Lorenzo and his teammate Ben Spies, as well as Repsol Honda’s Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa, Alpinestars offers the new Carver Leather Suit.
Available in both one-piece (for track) and two-piece (for street) configurations, these suits are made from premium 1.3mm full-grain leather with multiple-stitched main seam construction that enhances tear resistance.
Protection on both Alpinestars Carver suits comes from removable, CE certified GP protectors in the elbows and shoulders feature injection molded shells and dual density foam padding, as well as Alpinestars’ one-piece, CE-approved GP-R knee/shin protectors, which feature floating construction for precise fit.
There is also integrated PE foam padding on the torso, hips, coccyx and upper arms, and a snap-in connection system for the CE Level 2 certified Bionic Race Back Protector.
Features found on the Alpinestars Carver one-piece and two-piece suits include lightweight, contoured mesh calf panels, removable/washable mesh liner with built-in stretch inserts that work with the outer flex zones for an enhanced riding fit, flat profile YKK Semi Auto Lock wrist zippers and Alpinestars PU Sport knee sliders.
The two-pieces suit has an exclusive full circumference zipper that attaches the jacket and pants.
Additional features include extended, reinforced Aramidic fiber stretch panels on the torso, arms, crotch, and back of the knees ensure an optimal riding fit, plus Alpinestars’ exclusive aerodynamic, ventilated Dual Density back hump and silicon-embossed shoulder reinforcement.
Sizes for Alpinestars Carver One-Piece and Two-Piece suits range from Euro 48 to 60. Color combinations available are black (available up to size 64), black/white, black/white/red, plus the One-Piece-only black/white/yellow combination. Price for either suit is $800.
