Alpinestars 24Ride – Stylish and Sleek

Alpinestars 24Ride jacket is the perfect choice for road riders and commuters seeking a stylish and sleek casual hoodie-style jacket that offers a range of top-drawer protective features.

This jacket is packed with class-leading technology derived from the company’s involvement in premier class racing. The 24Ride comes equipped with the ability to use Alpinestars active airbag technology, Tech-Air, the world’s first completely electronic, self-contained upper body motorcycle airbag system with no bike-to-rider set-up configurations required. Using a sophisticated algorithm to detect crashes with accuracy and speed, Tech-Air functions without the need for external sensors, including GPS, and can be used with any make or model of motorbike.

This jacket is designed specifically for use on more upright naked bikes and scooters. The CE-certified Alpinestars 24Ride jacket features a heavy-duty knitted fabric main shell. There’s a full interior body lining constructed with aramidic fibre reinforcements for high levels of abrasion resistance. It also comes with Level 1 CE-certified Bio-Lite armour on the shoulders and elbows for top level rider protection.

Alpinestars 24Ride – Practical

It’s also extremely practical on and off the bike too. The jacket has two handy front zippered hoodie-style hand pockets, a removable hood, a large waterproof internal pocket and reflective print detailing on the front, back and sleeves to make sure the rider stands out when the conditions deteriorate. There’s also chest and back pad compartments which can accommodate the Nucelon chest and back inserts. These are available as an accessory upgrade for any riders looking to beef up the protection of their jacket. Meanwhile, the high collar with cord adjustments ensures high levels of comfort.

This jacket is built to accept the Race Airbag System. This can be purchased separately. It installs easily and does not require any external sensors to operate. Should it detect the start of a crash, it will deploy a protective airbag, providing unrivaled protection to the rider’s full back, shoulders, kidney area and chest.

The garment is designed to accommodate the jacket’s inflated volume without compromising seam strength or material integrity. The jacket’s ergonomic design means that it can be worn without the airbag system for a versatile, personalised fit.

Alpinestars 24Ride – The Smart Jacket

An LED display on the sleeve indicates the airbag’s operational status. Internal housing located in the built-in CE-certified back protector accommodates the system ECU allowing the Tech-Air® vest to be installed in any compatible Alpinestars jacket.

It’s smart too. Extensive research and testing on the road and track have allowed Alpinestars to refine the triggering algorithms, allowing the system to accurately assess when to deploy ahead of an impact.
