Alpinestars HYPERTECH race suit 2019
The Hypertech suit has been tested in the most challenging of environments; Formula 1, Formula E, WRC and WEC, and has been designed to deal with the stresses of the cockpit environment, reduce weight and minimize driver fatigue. Extremely light thanks to its two-layer construction, the Hypertech is very close fitting, breathable and effective at managing moisture, and fully complies with the latest homologation standards. The Hypertech features stretch panels strategically placed on the knee, crotch, elbows and waist for optimum levels of driver comfort and ease of entry and exit from the car, while the pre-curved arms and legs ensure there is no material bunching, which in turn reduces driver fatigue. Other driver-friendly details include nappa inserts on the neck profile, extra light zippers and cuffs, and flat seams.
