    Alpinestars Leathers


    Im looking to get a new 1 piece leathers for this upcoming season, my old leather are only one year old but dont fit very well anymore. I have been checking out the deals on eBay and stuff. There seems to be a few models, I like the Smoto the best. However, it says designed with Super Moto in mind. I dont supermoto... Whats the difference between the supermoto and non supermoto designs?

    Thanks.

    Supermoto suits are also cut for a more upright seating position (dirtbike/supermoto style). Suits like the MX1, the Vector, and the Race Replica are more of a race crouch fit.

    The MX1 seems to be the best deal for the money if you are looking for more of a race cut suit. It has all of the features of the replica, but is about $600 cheaper. The ventilation may be a little less, but that seems to be all I could figure out.

    Yes, please do tell.

    I have a one piece Vector right now. I like everything about it but the looks, and the snap collar.
