Alpinestars gave its dealers a sneak-peak of some new things that will be coming out next month for the spring 2012 season. Though, not really helping any of us as buyers, or you as customers, this pre-announcment does give us Internet-savvy shops a head start on the brick-n-mortar folks to get on the blogosphere and start talking about stuff we have absolutely no real experience with but will "recommend" to customers any way, at least in a blog post, along with heftly links back to our product pages and even make up actual "product review" videos about this stuff we don't know anything about, so we can elbow up to the top of the rankings in Google as soon as possible, stake our claim, as it were.
There's a few interesting things in the new release. One of a new Alpinestars Race Replica Suit that is being called the Alpinestars Race Replica Suit For Tech Air System
because it's integrated with their hi-tech air system you can buy from Alpinestars directly. Only 2 days after the announcement, we already have customers calling us from as far away as Australia looking for the new suit. It's more expensive than the old Race Replica. It comes in different colors than the old one too.
The other unique item in the collection is the Alpinestars Quick Seal Out kit. Called the Alpinestars Quick Seal out Jacket and Pants, this is an upgrade of sorts over the RS jacket and pants pull over item Alpinestars has had out for some time, if you are old school you'll remember the Alpinestars El Nino suit.
Are these two things great? Is the rest of the stuff great? We have no idea, but we hope you'll buy them from us before the other guys because we made this blog post.

The all new AGV Rossi Eyeball Helmet - Limited 2012 Rossi is now available. We have our first stock rolling in and all eyes are on the EYEBALL helmet from AGV.
What a cool helmet. We've seen the Limited Rossi AGV helmets since the first one came through our store and this certainly is one of the most interesting designs. It's not too whacky, but whacky enough. Has some style. A little 2001 A Space Oddysyish
Motostrano customers typically collect these helmets, so please buy early. Even with the economy as it is, the AGV Rossi helmets sell fast.
