The Racing Absolute v2 is a top-level professional-grade racing suit incorporating all the same lightest-weight and most-advanced materials and technologies that the world’s fastest MotoGP and WorldSBK riders wear on the track. Aside from its complete kangaroo leather construction, with dual kangaroo leather layers in all the highest abrasion-prone areas like the elbows, forearms, seat, hips, and back, the Racing Absolute v2 also features Kevlar® reinforced stretch inserts at the crotch, inner arms, and armpit areas. The bonded Kevlar® Grid provides increased cut, tear, and abrasion resistance, as well as offers highly reduced heat transfer to the rider’s body generated from any friction during a slide on the asphalt.
Another key material technology advancement found in the Racing Absolute v2 is the use of Alpinestars Composite Stretch technology, A-CS®Tech. Incorporated all throughout the suit, A-CS®Tech is found in the suit’s, side torso, shoulder blades, and upper knee areas, replacing the original leather accordion panels. A-CS®Tech material provides increased breathability, comfort, and freedom of movement, and offers lower weight and a lower profile than accordion leather (the A-CS®Tech panels are about 9% lighter than leather panels). In addition, the suit has leather accordion panels in the lower back and main flexion zones of the suit. Featuring a good level of stretchability, A-CS®Tech has about 30% elongation and offers an increase in tear resistance of 248% compared to standard racing stretch fiber and an increase in tear resistance of 570% versus leather. The technologically advanced Racing Absolute v2 Suit offers comparable performance to kangaroo leather, with even higher impact abrasion test results. The use of A-CS®Tech signifies a noteworthy advancement and improvement in protective performance materials.
The Racing Absolute v2 also incorporates Matryx® material on the lower leg for even further weight reduction and breathability. Found in the inner arms, crotch, back of the legs, collar, and pectoral areas, the suit has Kevlar®-reinforced stretch panels that provide high elasticity for freedom of movement, and an increased level of protection. The Racing Absolute v2’s construction has schoeller®-keprotec seam reinforcements at the elbows and knees, GP DFS external sliders on the shoulders, knees, and elbows, all-new race-grade GP-R PRO CE Level 2 shoulder, elbow, forearm, and knee armor, and CE Level 1 Bioflex racing version hip protectors. With all its technology and protection, the suit sets a new standard for Alpinestars Professional Racing apparel. The Racing Absolute v2 is Alpinestars’ top-of-the-line MotoGP level suit.
