A leather 2-piece leather suit that’s equally at home on the track, or on the way to the office, the Atem 2-piece provides much of the same protection you see in the company’s full-on race suits, but in a design that’s suitable for more than just trackdays and racing. Unlike lesser two-piece suits which use weak, small zippers, the Atem 2-piece employs large YKK zippers for attaching the pants to the jacket. This arrangement provides for a reliable closure that not only serves as a safety mechanism, but keeps the elements out on less-than-sunny days.


In a nod to the suit’s racing heritage, Alpinestars Dynamic Friction Shield (DFS) external armor is found in the most vulnerable places: the knees, elbows and shoulders. These protectors enhance the already stout stitching in these critical areas for exceptional protection against blowouts in a crash. Plus, each of these areas are backed by CE-certified GP-R armor directly below to mitigate the forces of an impact, reducing the risk of injury. And of course, the back hump is there for pukka race looks!


The two-piece suit is configured in a trackday cut, that is, it’s built to be comfortable on fast bikes. Though, a myriad of leather accordion stretch panels (and stretch fabric in non-impact areas), provide a comfortable range of flexibility so, even off the bike, the leathers don’t pull at you in a strange way. Plus, the skin-facing side of the suit is laid out with a mesh panel to reduce friction in movement and also, provide additional cooling capacity.



The easy in-and-out of the two-piece design makes the Atem a wise choice for commuting, jacket-only during the week, and then adding the pads for weekend twisties or trackday riding. For the rider on a budget, this setup allows you to dress up as the ride required, at a very reasonable price.


The Atem 2-Piece Suit comes in a range of sizes. To be sure of a perfect fit, give TJ a call on 866.931.6644 ext 817 for expert guidance. Or, just send a note to [email protected] with ALPINESTARS ATEM 2-PIECE SUIT in the subject line and we’ll get back to you promptly.
