Alpinestars Summer Tech Race Undersuit
Makes for a great undergarment for leathers. Used it for a few hot track days and it works well.

The Alpinestars Summer Tech Race Undersuit is an awesome product because it actually does what it is supposed to. The material offers enough compression to provide support to your limbs and help reduce fatigue as well as offering a generous amount of air to pass through and cool you down on summer rides. I am 5' 8" and 140lbs, so the Small size fit me perfectly. I wear this with the Alpinestars Motegi suit (size 48) and the perforated leather works well in conjunction with the undersuit to make riding with leather bearable in 90 degree weather.

Works as listed
I bought this for my first track day, a two-day California Superbike session in 100 degree Utah heat. It worked great and was easy to wash and dry overnight.

XL fits 6'4" 180-200 lbs
Amazing product and business to purchase from. got one for me and my brothers birthday (who also rides) and we love it because it's snug and tall enough for us to fit. Zipper is cross the chest Anna makes it easy to get into and out of when you're all sweaty. keeps you really cool too. Thanks for the excellent customer support!

This second skin is wonderful. Lightweight, comfortable. helps to wear the suit. Not to mention that is very hygienic. It is my second purchase of this second skin and I recommend.

Good product for a good price
I got this to wear under my racing suit and it's worked out very well. I've rode in 80 degree weather and this suit keeps me dry even when I start to sweat. I really like that the zipper unzips from the top or bottom, this feature comes in very handy. My only critique of the suit is that it seems to sort of bind up on my knees. I have a Dainese Avro 2-piece suit, and the undersuit seems to grab the inside of it at my knees as I move around on my bike. Not a big deal, but I'm hopping it'll smooth out a little after wearing it for a while.

Does its job
Light clothing, good ventilation. The zipper is off-center, making it much easier to open and close it.

Warm weather rider? You want this suit!
I live in the tropics where temperatures exceed 32 degrees centigrade all year round with high humidity, so cooling is very important to me.
If it is to you as well, you'd do well to use this suit.
Fitment is great for my 6ft frame in size L
First of all, the material is sheer and has a very nice feel on your skin.
Things get better when you start riding. The benefits of its moisture wicking feature can't be overstated. This inner suit kept me cool beyond even my highest expectations (combined with my Spidi Track Wind Pro).
The more you sweat, the cooler it gets. It's almost amazing how well it works
The material is very sheer, which raises doubts about longevity (I am probably overworrying, the feel of the material is a plus and I'm sure alpinestars are capable enough to make a durable undersuit out of it) but after its first track day and wash, its basically like brand new. The stitching however, is high quality and I have do doubt the seams can hold for a long time
As an added bonus you get some nice cosmetics with the little alpinestars logo on the front and wording on the back
And of course its absolute icing on the cake that even when soaked with sweat after a 1 hour ride to the track, 2 hours at the track, and another hour home in cloudless 34 degree weather with 100% humidity, that the leathers just slide off your body in 20 seconds (probably the other big reason why if you havent already bought yourself an undersuit, you should do it right now)
Great product and very highly recommended if you ride in any kind of warm weather
