The glove showcases Alpinestars' patented third and fourth finger bridge, in addition to an advanced leather and textile multi-panel construction and perforated top panel to keep your hands cool. The glove comes in six unique color schemes to go with almost any suit or riding jacket. Priced at $189.95, this glove appears to be a definite bang for the buck.

2) GP Tech Suit
Alpinestars did not miss a detail on the GP Tech Suit, a one-piece leather suit which replaces the Race Replica suit available in years past. Developed by the likes of MotoGP stars Marc Marquez, Dani Pedrosa, and Jorge Lorenzo, this is Alpinestars' top racing suit. It features a construction of both premium kangaroo and cow leather as well as CE-approved GPR shoulder, elbow, knee, and leg protection.

Alpinestars also added perforated accordion leather stretch panels in various areas for a claimed cool, comfortable, and flexible fit. The suit retails at a whopping $2199.95, so here's to hoping it gives you the superman effect that Marc Marquez oozes out his suit. We figure that'd would make it worth every penny.
