Alpinestars Limited Edition Cactus Gearset:
A Collaboration with Cactus Plant Flea Market
In collaboration with high-end fashion brand Cactus Plant Flea Market, which sells $170 t-shirts, Alpinestars has created what may be the most eye-catching, and controversial, gearset in the history of the sport. The Alpinestars Limited Edition Cactus gearset’s design was inspired by Cactus Plant Flea Market’s Cynthia Lu. Instagram followers of Cactus Plant Flea Market include reigning Supercross Champion Jason Anderson.
According to an Alpinestars spokesman, the Limited Edition Cactus gearset is described as a “fluid and eye-catching combination of type, playful graphics, and bright screen print.” The description of “eye-catching” is certainly indisputable.
This is definitely a gearset design, and the Alpinestars Cactus SM8 helmet, Tech 10 boots, Racer Tech jersey and pants, and Radar gloves are all designed to interact together. It’s difficult to imagine trying to integrate any of the pieces in with existing Alpinestars riding gear.
Eli Tomac wore a modified version of the gear, though he wears a Bell Helmet, at the Nashville Supercross.
We look forward to your comments on this unique graphic treatment.
