Default New SWRT Racing Suit

Did anyone notice the new suit that the drivers are wearing? I guess it's by Alpine Star right?

It looks pretty interesting, looks kind of like shiny leather.Not bad. It looks a bit like those for bike racers, but also a bit like what Power Rangers wear

Yes! Kind of like dirt bike racing suit, or some sci-fi suit don't you think?

By the way John, can you post pics of your Monte Carlo trip, if any? Thanks.

The suits are made by Alpine Stars, yes. They have been making moto-x wear for a long time and are now moving into driving suits, shoes and gloves.

Alpinestars makes some great roadracing (motorcycle) boots. I just wish I could afford a $300 pair of boots AND a $100 pair of gloves AND a $500 set of leathers.... Maybe this summer.... and only AFTER I put my YSR back together...

yep Alpine Stars.
Remember a few months ago Travis Pastrana drove the WRC car? He is sponsored by alpinestars and that was the connection

Hey! I'm looking to get them! Do you have the F1-R or F1-T? Where did you get them? How much were they? I emailed them, and unfortunately, there are no local New York dealers. They also didn't tell me about any online retailers. Said I should call them directly...

Thanks!

Default hmm

i called them directly in California.. i believe they have a 1-800 number....

let me warn you...they are NOT CHEAP!! mine were actually the karting shoes, which are mid-cut and non fireproof, and were still like 175 USD.

if your not racing all the time and don't need fireproof get the karting ones. cause they are alot cheaper


btw.. you better know your European Shoe Size.. cause that's what they work in....if not tell the guy whatever Nike size you wear and they will work it out for ya.


good luck..

Thanks for the info! No, I won't be racing... I'm just looking for a really nice pair of cool looking driving shoes hehehehe..

It's either Piloti's or Alpinestars... Piloti's are cheaper, but Alpinestars look so cool!
