Five Fast Facts

Alpinestars Techstar Jersey

Both the MXGP and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series are heating up for the summer, and Alpinestars has released a limited edition run of its new 2017 Techstar MX and off-road apparel, along with matching Venom Tech 10 boots and all-new Aviator gloves. Let’s see what’s up with the tasty new Venom gear.

  1. The 2017 Alpinestars Techstar Venom pants have been redesigned. The big news is the use of lighter-weight Alpinestars

    Adaptive Stretch Technology fabrics. Alpinestars uses four-way stretch panels all over the pants to make it easier than ever to scrub. Major stretch areas are the crotch, thighs, knees (just above the patellas), lower back, and large stretch panels from the back of the thighs to the ankles.

  2. The Techstar Venom jersey is light for the summer. Like the pants, the 2017 Techstar jersey has additional

    stretch panels, and adds moisture-wicking fabric and mesh panels to the design. The cut is intended to allow fully free movement to match the pants.

  3. Alpinestars has added all-new Aviator gloves. Continuing on the goal of ease of movement, the new Alpinestars Aviator gloves have a stretch insert to accommodate your adductor muscles, plus various stretch fabrics throughout the glove. A single-piece of Clarino keeps the palm pliable, as there are a pair of air exhaust vents to match

    the perforations in the fingers. Protection, however, is minimal.

  4. Venom Tech 10 boots complete the look. There’s nothing new about this edition of Alpinestars’ iconic Tech 10 boots, except for the color combination. Red, white, and blue for a patriotic summer (whether you’re from the United States, Great Britain, France, Norway, the Netherlands, Russia or the Czech Republic),

    Alpinestars also threw in contemporary fluorescent yellow to make sure you’re highly visible on the track or trail.

  5. Top riders in MXGP and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross wear Alpinestars gear. Keen eyed Lucas Oil Pro Motocross fans have noticed Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac and AutoTrader/Toyota/Yamaha’s Justin Barcia sporting Alpinestars MX gear. The rest of the world sees MXGP’s Romain Febvre and Jeremy van Horebeek of the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP Team wearing Alpinestars motocross apparel.
