Verified Customer Reviews for Alpinestars Supertech Glove
Had an issue with the size I originally ordered, was advised to try the next size up by Sportsbikeshop.
Received them the next day and they fit brilliant, love the fit and the colours as are so vibrant! Great feel from the glove and great touch feedback due to the way it's been designed.
Well worth the extra money for a superb glove that's superbly protective, comfy, and will last forever.
Are expensive, but worth it!!!
I've tried so many gloves in the past and always been disappointed for one reason or another. I have piano fingers and fairly big hands. Then I tried these and immediately felt at home. You need 2 sizes up as the fit is very slim (Race gloves).
Feedback is second to none as the seems on the fingers are set higher up and the palms are kangaroo leather. A fairly close second to these are the A Stars GP PRO R3, but their too bulky for my liking.
These gloves are by far the best I've had yet and I'll be happy to pay the price for the fit and feel they provide.
SBS is phenomenal with their service, thank you guys.
First I just like to say I don't give a perfect score to just anything.
Normally I always try to stay brand loyal with Dainese but unfortunately their gloves are too short in the fingers for my piano digits. I've tried countless brands, including Held so I thought I'd give these SuperTech's a go but wasn't expecting much.
These gloves are super comfy from first putting them on and their easy to put on compared to most race gloves. Amazing Level 2 protection. It's the feel and feedback in these gloves that hooked me, something I've never experienced before in a race glove. These truly do feel amazing on the bike without all that bulk. The seams are stitched higher up the finger so you do not get that horrible bunching up in the fingers when pulling the clutch/brake. They are fairly cool summer gloves and in great colours. I will never be changing my gloves again unless they feel like these or I'll just buy another pair when necessary.
Go up at size at least !!! these are slim fitting gloves. I did try the Alpinestars GP Pro R3 in Large and they are a great fit, but ordered a 2XL in these Supertech's.
Dainese you have your work cut out competing with these I hate to say.
Note to SBS for their exceptional delivery and returns service. Thank you :D.
Service excellent as ever form SBS.
OK fit although breaking them in took 600 miles and if this track day only Id need a lot of track time. Very very stiff to brake in, worst I've had in 40 years of riding. I tried the Dianese Metal 6 after I'd bought these which were so comfortable from the outset. Buy them again? No. Do the job? Yes, just as good if not better cheaper out there ?Defiantly. Go a size up and expect a tough breaking in session.
I've not broken them in fully yet as I purchase during the winter but my first impressions are positive.
I always have to go with 3XL with Alpinestars and they are a snug fit to get on but feel great once your hands are in.
They feel very high quality and quite "safe" with the armour and brace across the two last fingers.
Very good quality glove. The fitting is slightly small but not really a problem.
The quality and fit of the supertech gloves is great. They are top of the range and a little pricey but well worth the extra money if you can stretch the budget to buy them. They tend to come up a little small so I always order next size up, but with the sportsbike free return policy you can easily exchange them if needs be without incurring carriage costs.
Excellent product and excellent service by Sportsbike Shop, will be using your services again
Love these gloves, superb feel and grip.
Had the GP Pro before and ones "broke in" they served me very well for many miles.
The Supertechs also need some brake in but not as much and appear less "bulky".
Nice stitching, seems well designed and manufactured.
Some professional testers address the lack of hard slider in the palm area as a deal breaker.
Yes there are none. That might be the only minus.
I can't judge if that's a problem or if AS know it doesn't serve any purpose or if they assume experienced riders doesn't put their palms to the ground in a crash, would love to hear AS motivation to this.
They are small!
With some gloves I'm EU-size small, the GP Pros where Medium.
The Supertechs are size Large and has snug fit..
But it's no problem, check the measurement table, for me it was spot on accurate.
These are well made, don't think they are anything special though to be honest. Another pair of gloves in the vortex of odd sizes. These are a bit long in the finger for me compared to the other A* gloves I have in the same size. For the full retail price I wouldn't buy them again but SBS did an incredible price match for me. My Knox Handroids will still be my day to day gloves (better fit but bigger and bulkier) whereas these will be saved for track days.
