Alpinestars Scheme Aramid Glove - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Fantastic value for a superb pair of gloves.
Great, soft and comfortable gloves that are easy to wear from day 1. On the advice of previous reviews I ordered the larger size and found them to be just right. With protection in all the right places, what more can you ask for.
Excellent Value Summer Gloves from a great Brand
Slowly replacing some ageing budget gear and have decided to go for Alpinestars. Reasons for the decision (boots and winter gloves already purchased)... superb design focussed quality products that will last at prices that are very reasonable. The quality of these gloves, given the price paid, is excellent and as a summer glove with great protection I couldn't ask for more. This is the third item purchased through the Sportsbikeshop pithing the last month (new boots and helmet) and I have been very pleased with the service. Will be back for more items no doubt.
Very good glove. Only reason I gave four stars and not five is that it's a little tight on my thumb (I have small wide hands and finger & ordered Medium) the rest of the glove is a good fit. I expect on longer journeys it may get uncomfortable (or perhaps over time they will stretch slightly to fit my hands better). Good breathability in hotter conditions, and enough protection without being too bulky.
Good Summer Glove
The gloves themselves are great for summer. Light, flexible and with some protection. My only complaint is that the sizing was a little small. I have small hands and went with the Medium size and they still feel a little on the small size. I know people often ignore advice to go a size up, but in this case I would really recommend it.
Great pair of gloves - size UP
Brilliant pair of gloves! I am wearing it every day and it feels col and breezy especially in this "hot" weather. I have long fingers so I did go a size bigger than the sizing chart recommender. I have a wider thumb on my right hand regarding to a previous accident so it did feel a bit tight on that for the first week but it breaks in nicely! Highly recommend!
Got there in the end...
The gloves are really comfortable and fit really snug without restricting movement at all. One thing to think about though is the sizing was a bit of annoying to get right because they're in American sizing so if you usually use a large then you need the XL or 2XL if you use inner gloves underneath. At first, I was sent a pair that on the inside of the left hand glove when you wear it, the thumb on the left hand was very tight and less flexible than the right hand glove, very odd considering the left hand has to use the switch gear and horn. And the tip of the thumb seemed a bit squashed on the inside making it really uncomfortable. Probably just the odd bad pair and thankfully Sportsbikeshop has got such a wicked returns policy that I could send the Large back to try the XL and then again for the 2XL. Got there in the end, ta very much again for that by the way.
Great lightweight protection
These gloves are aimed firmly at the sports market & fit the bill perfectly. They are obviously Kevlar & have all the protection you need in a nice sleek design but they aren't thermal or water proof so if you're after gloves for all seasons look elsewhere. The construction is spot on & they're very comfortable to wear with good amounts of friction courtesy of the palm materials, I really can't fault them for the use they're designed for, five stars to Alpinestars & Sportsbikeshop.
