5 Limited Edition Alpinestars Kits That Will Always Be Lit

Alpinestars Limited Edition BlackJack Collection
With the release of the latest Alpinestars Limited Edition, The Fast Times takes a look back at five LE kits that are still coveted by riders.

Alpinestars Limited Edition Union Collection

With close to six decades of heritage, it’s safe to say that there have been many timeless boots, gearsets and styles that Alpinestars has brought to moto. Some are better than others, though, like the Limited Edition “Union” Collection. But it’s not just the design and colourways that make the LE so cool, but the aforementioned heritage. The Union Collection made its debut at the icon of American moto that is Southwick – AKA “Moto-X 338” or “The ‘Wick”. That also happens to be the track that made its debut on the AMA Pro Motocross circuit in 1976, where Alpinestars’ very own Pierre Karsmakers took the win. So, what’s the current State of the Union? There is a small amount of stock remaining. But, like any LE, you better be quick.

Alpinestars Limited Edition Bomber Collection

Sometimes, you’ve got to save the best for last. Near the end of the 2017 season of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, Alpinestars unveiled the Limited Edition “Bomber” Tech 10, as well as the matching Racer Braap jersey, pants and gloves. The Bomber LE was seen on Alpinestars athletes for the rest of ’17. While the gearset is sold out, there are some boots in stock with the supplier. But, as always, don’t leave it too long.

Alpinestars Limited Edition Gator Collection

The Alpinestars Limited Edition “Gator” Youth Racer Collection – named in honour of Gatorback Cycle Park in Gainesville, Florida – includes the Youth Racer jersey and pant, the Radar Flight glove, and the Tech 7S boot – all in the Gator colourway. The Tech 7S comes in “Whip Cream White”, with added flo-orange deco, and hints of yellow flavour around the edges. There’s a small amount of stock still remaining, so head down to your local dealer, stat.

Alpinestars Limited Edition BlackJack Collection

The Limited Edition “BlackJack” Collection is for those riders who liked to double down. Or, you know, look cool when riding. That’s easy in the BlackJack Collection, too. It isn’t just the Racer Braap jerseypant and glove combo, either. The collection also includes a sweet Tech 7 in the same colourway (but with some flo-red and flo-yellow added to the mix). To match, there is also the option of running the BlackJack A-1 Roost Guard or A-4 Chest Protector, too.

Alpinestars Limited Edition Aviator Collection

The Alpinestars Limited Edition “Aviator” Collection made its racing debut at the sixth round of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, where the superstars of supercross battled in San Diego, and the United States Armed Forces were honoured. Why the military theme? It’s tradition for teams, riders and brands to honour the Armed Forces at one round of the series. That’s why Alpinestars released the Aviator Tech 10 boot, Racer jersey, Racer pant, and Racefend glove.
