Alpinestars seems pretty serious about tackling the demand for honestly protective motorcycle gear that doesn’t look like something the Rainbow Ranger would would rock. This new Verona Air mesh jacket ($160) is as plain as plain can be, just with CE armor in the shoulders and elbows and pockets for real chest and back protectors. The almost not-boot cut Logic jeans ($100), with Kevlar linings in the knees and butt, aren’t even acid washed or pre-distressed. The problem? Look closely at the right butt cheek. See it? Yes that is a giant star on the ass of what’re supposed to be mens jeans. Guess we’ll be sticking with our Iron Hearts.
