Alpinestars Bionic Chest Pad 4.8 5 160 160
Amazing Protection I bought these for my Alpinestars T-GP Pro jacket and they fit in there great if you put them in there right. Personally I put them in upside down and put the plates on the opposite side because that felt more comfy to me. The only problem with that is they don't perfectly fit in the pocket of the jacket. Sometimes they manage to move the Velcro and try to fall out the bottom. I have to re-position them about once a month. Like I said I don't have them put in right because they feel more comfy this way. Overall they are very sturdy. They are also very good at helping the jacket deflect even more wind. While I wear them, I feel like they would stop a small caliber bullet. If I had to buy them again, I would. January 19, 2015
Added piece of mind I throw these chest protectors into my A* suit coupled with the Bionic Race Back Protector. Its an added peace of mind for a small monetary cost. It does make the suit a little bulkier in the chest area, however I do not feel the protectors while I am riding. They become one with the suit. I'm going to throw these into my everyday riding jacket as well! December 20, 2014
Beef up your protection. I have purchased this to help make my Celer Jacket fit tighter and add strength to it. December 15, 2014
Don't Ride Without I bought the chest and back protectors when I purchased my new GP Tech Air jacket. These bionic protectors are far superior to the foam inserts that come with A* jackets. While the foam is better than nothing, the bionics are much more rigid yet are about the same thickness. They don't take up any more space than the foam originals and definitely provide superior protection. December 1, 2014
Nice additional protection When riding a motorcycle, protection is never too much. These pads fit perfectly on the jackets and definitely adds a little more protection for the rider. November 17, 2014
Good value - decent protection I bought these to keep in my Alpinestars GP-Plus R jacket and they certainly increase the level of protection for a minimal price. They are comfortable (can't even tell they are there) and don't really take away from the jacket's airflow properties. Its really one of those pieces of gear where its so cheap that there is no reason not to run them. I recently highsided @ about 60mph on the track with these on a but luckily didn't take a chest impact so I can't really comment on how effective they are. October 10, 2014
Great addition to your jacket... Great extra protection for your jacket, fits perfect in the jacket and you don't feel it's there. October 6, 2014
Great addition to A* gear. Others need not apply. I started riding on the track this year, and found through experience that it's REALLY good to have chest protection that's easy to remove between sessions for comfort and cooling. With these pads in the chest pockets built into A* jackets and suits, you get the protection with zero hassle. Just unzip and you're nice and cool. I do wish these were CE rated, but they do appear to be reasonably substantial - similar to other armor I've seen that is rated. Nice bonus is that I can swap them over to my street jacket in less than a minute. Track gear that also works for everyday riding! October 6, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Maxime V: Good safety addition, made to slip into astar jackets. Feb 19, 2015
johnathan b: Best protection for a chest insert Feb 8, 2015
Jonathan M: To upgrade the celer jacket's original foam padding. Jan 31, 2015
Chuck D: I purchased this for my Alpinestars Andes Drystar Jacket since it only has thin foam padding in the chest area. These pads offer much better protection. Jan 30, 2015
Gary S: "After watching my friend crash and observing all his injuries I decided it was time to protect myself to the best extent possible. Did my research and found this to be one of the best in safety and in reviews. Tried it on today and wasn't disappointed and will recommend to all my friends as a useful piece of armor to help prevent serious injuries." Jan 12, 2015
Katrina C: why not have added protection Jan 6, 2015
Travis A: The standard protection that is in the Alpinestars jacket was a joke. This should honestly be standard in their jackets, just increase the cost of the initial jacket. Dec 23, 2014
David D: Wanted to upgrade the protection on my jacket. Dec 21, 2014
Francis R: Why not? Chest protection is somewhat overlooked by leather jacket-buying -motorcycle-riding public. And this is a quality, intermediate protection for a sportrider who does not have deep pockets. Excellent quality and fit/purpose! Dec 18, 2014
Neil H: Increases protection with my A* GP R leather jacket. Dec 13, 2014
SydsCyclesInc M: They fit my leathers and give me added protection and confidence Dec 13, 2014
A B: I was concerned these pads might not be sufficiently strong enough to protect adequately but I'm surprised at how rugged they are. They will fit correctly in my Astars suit so no worries about altering them or the suit for use. A big increase in safety and peace of mind for a price I'm prepared to pay. Dec 6, 2014
Lawrence W: I choose this item to provide more protection and a since of security that i am doing all i can to protect myself from bodily damage in case of a crash. Plus the Jacket itself does not include this in which it should be an option when purchasing the jacket. Nov 23, 2014
Dylan F: to beef up my a* jacket Nov 22, 2014
David Ryan S: for my a-star gp-r jacket Nov 12, 2014
Justin R: To replace the current foam pads in my jacket. Nov 3, 2014
David F: Added protection. Nov 1, 2014
Brandon G: I wanted to have the same level of protection I have on my dirt bike while riding my street bike. Having my chest protected gives me peace of mind so I can focus on riding vs "what ifs". Oct 30, 2014
Arnold G: help prevent breaking ribs (if possible) should I come off the bike. Oct 8, 2014
Yang L: For best protection against high impact area. Sep 30, 2014
Justin B: I decided to get this because I was buying my Jaws jacket and a back protector, so I figured I'd get the chest protector as well just to make sure my jacket was as safe as I could make it. Sep 19, 2014
LAWRENCE H: I wanted more confident feeling of protection than foam padding.
One less thing to worry about while riding.
Although i feel that leather jackets above $400 should either include chest or back protectors rather than be optional.
But i am happy with these protectors for my Alpinestars Monster jacket.
Revzilla has great prices and super fast shipping.

Colt T: I'm pretty sure the answer is no. I just checked my Viper Air jacket and I don't see any way to access the chest protector pieces that come pre-installed in the jacket. And Alpinestars website mentions the following in the description: "Chest and Back protector compartments with PE comfort padding (CE certified Bio Armor back protector insert available as accessory)." If the CE certified chest protectors fit, I think they'd also mention those for a potential cross-sell. Apr 24, 2014

Daniel M: I forgot the nomenclature used by the industry but essentially there are two kinds of protection out there, active and passive. Active gear is kind of like an air bag in your car (it hardens on impact and protects you (once) from an accident. In a passive system the construction of the padding/armor provides the protection and will function until worn out or damaged. These are passive pads and have a harder exterior plastic for impacts and to provide durability, and a lighter foam on the back to provide some padding for comfort. As long as they have not been damaged and your jacket not worn through then they should be fine in providing protection during another spill. Jul 16, 2014
Reply to Daniel Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Aaron J: Thats probably a question for A* directly. I think it would be fine for multiple crashes unless severly damaged. I don't think of them like a helmet with 1 hit and game over these are more of a basic line of defense. Jul 16, 2014
