More 2010 Alpinestars
A few weeks ago my ten year old son and I flew down to Los Angeles to check out the new products that Alpinestars is releasing to the US market. As one of Alpinestars' big US dealers we get to preview new product releases before the rest of the world. Naw, we didn't make some goofy video about it, but we had a great time. Got dined, wined and indoctrinated by multiple members of the Alpinestars sales army and then my son and I bolted off to Disneyland to go ride the rides and get lost in the fantasy of it all.
I'll tell you this, if you haven't been to Disneyland lately, take the time to get down there. It's truly the happiest place on earth.
The 2010 offering from Alpinestars is extensive. Most of the items from 2009 are being carried over and today 48 more products were made available. There are some cool new jackets for men, a very nice jacket for the ladies, some new footwear, body armor and accessories to check out in this release and you'll find them available on our web site, which is right here.
I like the retro Velocity Jacket, as well as the Drift, two jackets that are part of the Alpinestars move from 1.4 to 1.1 thickness leather in their street/sport riding jackets. Alpinestars says that the new 1.1 leather they use is as strong as their 1.4 and more light weight. Ok, we'll go along what that.
If you are hip, you'll want to buy one of these. If you like to play in the mud, get this. If you're a girl and ride in the street, check this out. If you carry a lot junk with you, get this
