Great gloves
02 April 2024 by Jason W
Great glove at a fantastic price, good protection and comfort, thank you.
Style: Black
Finally gloves that fit!!
15 March 2024 by Jon T
I have large hands and always struggle with the knuckles lining up, despite measuring, checking size guides, etc. Ordered 3xl (like many others I have tried) and "fit like a glove..."

And the quality is as expected. My last Alpinestar gloves lasted years so hopefully these are similar.
New season gloves

Ordered these gloves and, after a short restocking issue, they arrived. I opened the parcel and couldn't believe how light they are. And so supple, feel like they're already wore in. So pleased with them. They fit me really well too,
Good fit, Alpinestars standard

I was after a longer cuff than my current summer gloves. Ordered size L to try in in store and size was a good fit for big but slim hands/fingers. XL were too baggy around my hand but with slightly longer fingers so it made for a better fit with the L's.

Tight ish to get on but that just gives a good fr when actually on.
Nice leather, supple and soft in the right places as you'd expect from A-star.

Its takes me ages to find gloves and I don't know what has happened to prices but hundreds of pounds for gloves just seems crazy and even more annoying when you have multiple sets or you just don't get on with them, looking at you Rukka. These are amazing great fit and great value, sized like they always have been. Already recommended them to friends, feel free to spend more but these work.
Good quality sizing is misleading. Buy 1 size up

Gloves are excellent quality but way too tight.
Every time I wear them I have to really stretch them in the middle to get them on. When finally on they are pretty comfortable but not brilliant.
I measured my hands correctly and by definition was defined as a large. These gloves are large but are way too tight.
If I was to buy another pair I would go one size up to XL which I am blatantly not. I have small hands,

Simply Fine…..

I was very sceptical on the idea of these.
Weren't my short cuff gloves adequate? Did I need to spend more?
Glad I did.
Alpinestars quality as always.
The stitches, protection in the palm and across the knuckles.
Top quality and very reasonable I would say also.
Definitely purchase them again if I needed
Great product

Look and feel great, well made, great value
Very comfortable

Tried other gloves that had fairy wide knuckle protection that seemed to rub against my bar end mirrors. These have knuckle protection but not so big as to clash with bar end mirrors. I found the finger length good for me. Very supple without need to break in.
Well made no nonsense glove

Excellent fit, great construction
Style: Black
Quality summer gloves
03 July 2023 by Colin
Excellent build quality in a reasonably priced glove. Used the gloves for a few times and really pleased with their fit and comfort. As with other reviews, I had to move up a size even after using the size chart measurement. As ever, SportsbikeShop exchange system was brilliant.
Great gloves
30 May 2023 by Gary H
Best fitting gloves I have had. I did order Medium size to start with and these were too small.
But quickly exchanged by Sportsbikeshop.
I would suggest going a size bigger than you think when ordering.
Fit is just perfect now. Very comfortable and look great.
Perfect fit and ideal for the job!

As with all Alpinestars gear you get what you pay for. Im very pleased with them and had to use them after an accident. Protected my hands nicely and avoided too much damage too!
