Alpinestars Bionic Chest Pad
Love these!!! Huge upgrade from what came with the jacket and I feel so much more protected when riding without sacrificing any comfort of maneuverability while riding!

Proper inserts for A* Celer Jacket
These fit the bill for chest protector inserts in A*s jackets. I picked these up just before the Nucleon line came out, otherwise I would have gone with those. Lost points on bang for the buck since the Nucleon line offers higher CE ratings at lower prices.
There's not much to say about these since my A* Celer jacket does not vent through the chest, nor will anyone ever see these. Points for style and airflow are practically not applicable.
Now that Nucleon is out, I'd only buy these on steep discount or closeout.

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.
