Alpinestars Ares Gore-Tex Jacket
The Alpinestars Ares Gore-Tex is a versatile winter touring jacket that is made of multiple panels of different fabrics for maximum durability, protection and comfort. An ideal jacket for all those motorcyclists who use the bike regularly during the winter in cold areas.

The fabric of the jacket found in the most critical areas, such as the forearms, shoulders and trapeze, has a great resistance to abrasion. For their part, the elastic panels located in elbows and dorsal area help comfort and give more freedom of movement on the bike.
The Gore-Tex membrane inside the jacket, in addition to being ultralight, which translates into comfort for the rider, ensures optimum impermeability and breathability. In addition, the removable thermal lining allows it to be used in different climatic conditions.

This new jacket from Alpinestars has detachable protectors on elbows and shoulders with CE certification. The jacket incorporates foams in the chest and back, and allows to mount the Alpinestars Nucleon protectors, although these are not included. As for the reflective details on the sleeves and back, these, along with the yellow fluorine of this model, improve the visibility of the rider.
Zipped air intakes in the chest area and back provide an excellent airflow when circulating.
With a zip fastener and velcro closure, the Alpinestars Ares Gore-Tex fits perfectly into our body thanks to its different regulations, allowing us to roll comfortably. In addition, it has zipper pockets on the front, as well as a waterproof on the forearm and another interior compartment for important objects. Finally, it also has a zip-up jacket-pants that makes it possible to attach it to any trousers of the Italian brand.

Alpinestars Patron Gore-Tex pants
The Alpinestars Patron Gore-Tex pants is the ideal complement to the Ares jacket, designed for all those motorcyclists who use the bike regularly in cold weather, but can also be used in any season thanks to its great versatility.
With characteristics very similar to the jacket, such as the Gore-Tex membrane or the removable inner thermal lining, among others, the pants are mainly made of lightweight polyamide, a material very resistant to abrasion.
Alpinestars Patron Gore-TexFrontal (left) and rear (central) view of the Patron Gore-Tex pants. It features a big zipper in its lower zone for a better sealing (right).
Its pre-curved design, adjustable waist and elasticity in the area of ​​the knees facilitates the riding of the motorcycle and the comfort of the driver.
The protections are located in the knees, with CE certification, and in the area of ​​the hips, which have foam protectors removable by velcro. In addition, the pants incorporate reflective elements that help in driving at night or in low light situations.
Alpinestars Patron Gore-TexIn the inner zone we find two lateral paddings, that can be replaced thanks to its velcro pannels.
Other features of the pants are their deep side pockets with zip to keep our belongings well, zippered bellows and velcro in the lower part of the leg for a perfect fit around the boot and the zipper that allows us to join the pants to the jacket.
In short, the Alpinestars Ares Gore-Tex and the Patron Gore-Tex make up a versatile and functional motorcycle set that will keep us away from the wind and rain on the coldest days of the year, all without losing an ounce of comfort.
