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

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

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!

Next version of my old gloves
10 December 2022 by JP
I had the V2 version of these for several years and the V3 seem just as good.

Only used them a couple of times (coz they're summer gloves), but breaking-in nicely.

Quality and fit is excellent
Is this progress?
12 October 2022 by Daniel W
Overall a great glove, as you would expect from alpinestars. However, compared to my SP8 V1 there is less padding on the palm and cuff, and they just don't seem to be made of as good quality leather. There is also now two velcro straps (much to my annoyance) where the V1 only had one, which was more than adequate during numerous on and off track....mishaps. My V1s wore in well and have lasted years, time will tell if these live up to the previous model
Better than expected

Been trying some leather gloves in some bike stores but they seem really stiff to my liking but wanted some as I have a supersport bike and when I received them and tried them on I was really surprised to how nice it felt, not stiff ,not too lose or too tight just right . Very happy with my purchase
Great gloves
