alpinestar fitment, quality?

How do the A-star one pice suits/sizing run? For instance if you are a 52 euro did you need a 54 euro or 50 euro? What about quality, any feedback?

You may already know but cyclegear off Madison and 80 has a large selection of alpinestar gear
You can try on for size and fitment then order from Nick at motowheels. .. they will make you a good deal

I think it's truely depending of your shape. I'm 52 euro, and that's what I got. The quality of Alpinestars is good. I got the race replica, and love it. Cyclegear gives you the best deal.

interesting question....

can anybody compare it to other manufacturers, such as Dainese? I always seemed to think A* ran bigger, but that's only based on random items I have from A*, don't have any leathers which have proper sizing, just an M jacket, whatever that means.

My RC-1 suit is true to size. Pretty much what it says for sizing on the website, that's what you're gonna get. Pretty comfortable once you finally get it on, too. lol! Granted it's going to need a slight stretch, but other than that, it's a great suit. As for quality, I've heard nothing but good. I'm not so keen on testing mine out, but I'm sure it will hold up in a crash.

Their stuff is great and runs correctly on their sizes, vs fit. Dainese (for example) are pretty slim and tend to run smaller than size listed. I'd say that fit of a one piece is very really should try on any suit you're considering buying, before you buy. Remember, not too tight and not too loose. If there is any pinching, binding or tight spots...go up a size, as it will go from mild discomfort to I got to get off the bike, pain, at the 50 mile mark, and above. One piece leather suits do stretch, but it's like 5-8% (not much) I have found, the cheap suits tend to stretch more...Alpinestars are not cheap suits.
