Alpinestars Bionic Chest Pad
Step up in protection for Alpinestars jacket
I ordered these chest protectors as a step up in protection for my Alpinestars jacket. They fit right in after wrestling with the velcro enclosures at the chest area in the jacket a bit. I hope I never have to use them!
They replace the original foam pieces.
Being plastic they are stiffer and perhaps do not mold as easily to your body but then again that's the price you pay for the protection.
As with all Alpinestars products you pay a premium but then again you are supposed to be getting the best quality, so that is the trade off you make.

Adds extra protection and confidence. The fit is pretty tight with my jacket. Airflow is good.

Extra protection for extra peace of mind
Replaced the flimsy foam pads that came standard in the Alpinestars jacket with these and can easily feel the difference; definitely a necessary piece to any A* jacket. As an added bonus, they make the jacket fit even better.

Not test rated
These are superior to cheap foam filler in my alpinestars jacket but I was disappointed that I did not see a CE rating on the pads. Please disregard this review if that are CE rated but no where on packaging or pads show it. They seem tough and I hope I never have to test them my self but I would like the peace of mind that they were tested to a standard. If have junk foam inserts in your jacket I would recommend getting these because they help a lot better the thin piece of foam.

Have you seen your foam pads?
Take the foam pads out of your jacket and it should be very obvious to you why these are beneficial. Considering how cheap they are, I honestly don't know why A*'s doesn't just make them stock in all of their jackets.
First time you take a rock thrown from a semi tire to the chest going 70mph, you will know why having more than just a foam/leather pad is worth the price.
