Alpinestars Bionic Chest Protector | Spotlight


Full Protection Goes Lightweight with the Alpinestars Bionic Chest Protector.

In motocross, every little advantage can be the difference between winning and losing. So lighter is better! And with the Alpinestars Bionic Chest Protector, you can have optimal torso protection from roost and debris in the most lightweight package to date!

Let’s kick this review off with some great video accompaniment. Here’s the 60 Second Product Review from the famed BTO Sports YouTube Channel. Great stuff- enjoy:

The versatile and modular Bionic Chest Protector incorporates level 1 CE certified protection on the chest, back and shoulders. Although a hard shell protector, it has the feel and flexibility of a lightweight roost guard. Especially relevant is that it’s compatible with the BNS Tech Carbon Neck Support Brace. Furthermore, it features side adjustable kidney belt support and adjustable/removable shoulder pads.

The comfort is aided by the plush foam interior padding, the lightweight design allows for complete ventilation and airflow. A rider that’s 6’ tall and weighs 175 lbs can wear the M/L option with confidence. Why? Because this is one of the most comfortable and protective dirt bike accessories on the market.

Bionic Chest Protector Features

• Hard shells are constructed from a high performance polymeric material blend for optimized flexibility and excellent weight saving properties.

• Shells feature perforation zones and air channeling for excellent breathability and ventilation.

• Ideally suited to complement all motocross and dirt bike apparel. Removable upper back padded panel for BNS compatibility.

• Side adjustable kidney belt allows for various fit sizes and ensures protection remains close the body at all times.

• Front side wings are connected to the main chest protector with three bridge fixings allowing the wings to move independently and take the shape of the body.

• Thermoformed side padding offers superb rider comfort whilst also protecting the lower ribs against injury.

• Shoulder protectors are adjustable to allow for different shoulder widths and can also be removed if required.

Make no mistake, the construction of this motocross protective gear is truly state-of-the-art. First, protector plates feature embedded grid technology under the shells. Which, in turn, absorbs and dissipates impacts forces. Secondly, the grid technology cell system enables greater flexibility and air ventilation while allowing for significantly reduced weight.

Modular design means that the protector can be worn in various configurations allowing rider to use in different riding situations. Also, the soft, bio-foam padded chassis provides maximum comfort and personalized, close-to-the-body fit. So under all of your motocross jerseys lurks the ultimate in MX protection!
