MotoGP racers, Jorge Martin and Jack Miller officially debuted the new Alpinestars Supertech R10 at the recently concluded Sepang Pre-Season Tests. The helmet sans graphics was first seen on Andrea Dovizioso in November last year during the Misano tests.

The shell is made from a multi-layer composite construction, with a 3K high-density carbon layer on the outside, followed by a uni-direction carbon composite layer beneath, an aramid fibre layer below that and finally an epoxy resin. Alpinestars says that the multilayer construction improves the helmet's strength and energy dissipation in crashes. This, in turn work together with the four-density EPS inside to absorb impacts.

The helmet also features the patented Alpinestars A-Head Fitment System which allows the rider to adjust the height and angle of his helmet to enhance comfort and performance.

It is apparent that the Alpinestars Supertech R10 is designed for maximum aerodynamic efficiency, given the MotoGP bikes can now 360km/h, besides the riders moving around at high speeds. But as mandated by the FIM FHRPhe-1 standard, the spoiler detaches in crashes.

Other features include a shield mechanism that uses metal components to minimize the risk of detachment during an impact. The inner liner is removable and has an antimicrobial properties. There is also a channel for a hydration tube.
