From trail and enduro to downhill, reliable protection is indispensable in order to prevent injuries while mountain biking. Alpinestars’ Evolution jacket combines protection and hydration in a single functional clothing piece.
Made of lightweight, stretchable mesh the vest is equipped with a level 1 CE certified back protector and slim moulded shoulder pads. Both protectors can be removed if needed. EVA pads on the chest and sides offer additional protection.
The ergonomic shape of the protectors guarantees excellent fit and great comfort.
As the vest sits tight around the body it can easily be worn underneath a bike top.
As well as the anatomically formed back protector the pocket at the back also offers enough space to stow a hydration system. Additional pockets around the kidneys can be used to carry smaller utensils.
At the ISPO MUNCH Alpinestars’ Evolution jacket was given the ISPO AWARD in the “Action Sports / Protection & Safety” category.
In the following video Alpinestars team rider Anneke Beerten explains the vest’s features and how she was involved in the development of the Evolution jacket.
