Alpinestars Bionic Chest Pad
Cheap, valuable protection
I bought these for my Alpinestars T-GP air jacket, and they fit perfectly! They don't add any bulk to my chest, and I feel much safer in my jacket. The venting is pretty good in the Texas heat as well.
The price is worth the comfort and added security while riding.

Good, worth it
I put them in and they fit perfectly into my Viper Air Jacket. I cant complain and I think they would work. At least i hope they do but hopefully I wont find out anytime soon.

I got these to put in my T-GP-R jacket and they are worth it. When I'm wearing the jacket, it's hard to tell that these are even in it!

Not in the way
I have a snug jacket, but the chest pads are not noticeable unless I'm moving my jacket around on me. It feels good to know that I have protection in case I need it.
While riding, I get really good airflow.

Alpine stars chest protector
Offers peace of mind knowing that you are protected very lightweight and easy integration into a alpinestars jacket doesn't take up room and jacket still fits very well while chest protectors are installed

Haven't taken to the tracks yet but it looks like it is worth the money
I haven't taken this to the track yet, but it seems like it will provide decent protection. It is definitely a step up from the original foam padding in the chest area of my suit.
I am using the Alpinestars Motegi One Piece suit. I will be taking this setup to the tracks very soon.

Alpinestars jackets come with just a regular foam pad in the chest that offers little to no protection in cause of a crash. These replacement pads fit perfectly into my T-GP-R jacket no problem. As long as the jacket isn't already really tight around your chest, you aren't going to ever notice you put these in there! they are stiffer than the foam obviously but that's whats going to keep you from cracking/breaking your ribs in a crash. So again, as long as your jacket fits properly and isn't really tight, you will never notice these!
Remember, the $40 you spend on these is WAY cheaper than hospital visits and physical therapy! You can never be too protected on a bike!

This product fits very well in my T-GP-R jacket. In the bottom center of the jacket is a zipper that gives you access to the Velcro pockets that this product fits into. This product instantly made me feel more secure and safe. As soon as you have the money, buy it!
