Core protection doesn't have to mean a torso drenched with sweat after your first lap, and Alpinestars drives the point home with the Paragon Plus Protection Vest. This lightweight vest features open mesh stretch fabric on both the front and side, amping up breathability and ventilation to keep you cool while you ride. But while breathability is a concern, we're pretty sure that protection is the priority when shopping for body armor, and Alpinestars employs a removable CE-Certified ergonomic back panel to offer coverage to critical zones. The back panel is shaped to move with you on the bike, and built to take the brunt of impacts in the event of a crash. The pad's removable nature means you can easily slide it out after a ride so you can freshen up the vest, while keeping the protector in top condition. A full-length zipper at the front makes it easy to toss the vest on before your jersey, and a slim, stretchy fit helps you stay comfortable with your favorite kit over top.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
