Alpinestars launch new 2010 Tech Heated Vest

Alpinestars branch out into heated clothing with this great-looking heated vest

Alpinestars have launched their first item of heated clothing just in time for our lovely winter.

The Tech Heated Vest offers riders excellent body temperature management, using custom flat panel heating elements. The Vest is designed for comfort and ease of use to meet the most demanding of riding conditions.


•    Flat panel polymer heat panels in the chest, upper shoulder/neck and lower back, are strategically placed a to aid temperature management, giving the most even spread of heat over the largest area.
•    Insulated Lycra outer shell with a fleece lining allows heat to pass evenly from the elements and insulate the body.
•    Self regulating panels remain at a constant temperature to prevent overheating.

Power management
