Whenever there is a new set of gear loose in the office that fits, Paul is the first to put his hand up to test it out. When the new Alpinestars Flagship gear set arrived, Paul already had his Tech 10 boots and Bell helmet in the car, ready to go all ‘Shayne King’ on everyone. It’s a pretty sharp looking kit too, if we’re honest.
With its pre-curved sleeves, moisture-wicking and extremely lightweight and durable main chassis, the Racer Flagship Jersey will not let you down when the track or trails get tough. The Racer Flagship Jersey comes in a range of distinctive and aggressive colour combinations and is designed to match the Racer Flagship pant and glove for a total performance look and feel. Nothing wrong with looking good and feeling good.
With an innovative, ergonomic design and distinctive graphic patterns, Alpinestars’ Racer Flagship Pants are at the pointy end of off-road racing apparel. With stretch panels and a 3D knee construction for freedom of movement and extensive, lightweight mesh, this pant also incorporates a pre-shaped leg construction and reinforced padding to offer excellent levels of comfort and performance. Plenty of room for knee braces shows just how much thought has gone into the design of these pants.
A lightweight MX glove with excellent comfort features, the Limited Edition, Blackjack Radar Flight Glove incorporates a single-piece spandex upper and Clarino palm for a reduced and lightweight material design. The silicone grip patterning on the fingers and innovative palm stretch gusset offers improved control on the bike’s controls. The pre-curved fingers are a nice touch too, ‘cause who walks around with straight fingers all the time, right?
Tech 10 Boots
The boot that’s been around in top-level motocross for ages, the Tech 10 is both a go-to and a world title-winning boot many times over. From the anatomical shape with front and rear sliding blades, to the all-new closure system with light and durable buckle closure system, every component of the new Tech 10 boot has been continuously developed in racing conditions. Everyone in their lifetime has no doubt used a pair of Tech 10s and the sole is replaceable too.
The Racecraft represents 100%’s commitment to create an enhanced user experience, by providing racers with a higher level of functionality and accurate vision. The synthesis of precision engineering and minimalistic design, results in a premium goggle which performs as great as it looks. The outriggers help to achieve perfect fit and balance on most, if not all helmets, and there is a removable nose guard for those with a larger snozz.
This baby is loaded with features like a matrix shell, Velocity Flow Ventilation, X-Static Liner, Flying Bridge visor, magnetic cheek pads/strap keeper and a five-year warranty. The Moto-9 continues to dominate, just like the athletes who ride with them. The helmet is really comfortable to wear and allows goggles to slide into place with no hang-ups. The new Moto-9 now comes with MIPS, so it’s time to upgrade to the extra safety we think. At 1450g, the Moto-9 is not the lightest out there, but it won’t sent you to the chiro either.
