Just because the temperatures are rising and the thought of putting on another layer causes sweat to bead on your brow doesn’t mean you should skimp on protection when you climb aboard your motorcycle. You should always dress for the ride — but in the summer, it’s equally important to keep cool with the right gear.
The Alpinestars Viper Air Textile Jacket is constructed from reinforced 600 denier poly-fabric and has removable CE-certified Bio-Armor at the shoulders and elbows for protection and designed with massive mesh vents for maximum airflow, so it doesn’t feel like you’re riding around in a Turkish bathhouse.
