TOURING
The new introductions to the Spring 2023 Touring line-up are equally exciting, and set new benchmarks in climate management, with Alpinestars’ Drystar® membrane being used throughout the line and in the Halo Drystar® Jacket and Pants, the RT-7 Drystar® Boots, the CR-X Women’s Drystar® Riding Shoes, as well as in the urban category’s Men and Women’s Chrome Drystar® Riding Shoes. Spring 23 showcases Alpinestars’ commitment to reinforcing the Halo Drystar® gear range with the launch of new colorways and the introduction of the new Halo Leather Glove.

RACING
With the Spring 23 launch, the Racing category sees another major innovation in material technology with the introduction of Alpinestars Composite Stretch Technology (A-CS® Tech) in both the Racing Absolute v2 and the GP Plus V4 one piece suits. Developed in MotoGP, and incorporated extensively throughout the Racing Absolute v2 suit, A-CS®Tech is strategically positioned in the suit’s side torso, shoulder blades, and upper knee areas, for exceptional breathability, comfort, and freedom of movement. Not only does A-CS® Tech provide the suit with a lighter weight, the Alpinestars Composite Stretch Technology also offers a lower profile than traditional leather accordion panels. Another key advantage to using A-CS®Tech is its superior stretch performance that provides approximately 30% of elongation and offers an increase in tear resistance of 248% compared to standard racing stretch fiber, as well as an increase in cut resistance of 570% versus leather.
