Since 1963, Alpinestars has been designing and manufacturing premium-quality riding gear, protection, footwear, apparel, and other motorcycle accessories with a wide range of applications. This Italian company was established by Sante Mazzarolo a motorsports enthusiast and leather craftsman. Today, the brand holds one of the most prominent positions in the motorcycle gear market and provides top-notch products for champions and best drivers and riders in Formula One, MotoGP, Motocross, and NASCAR championships.
