Customer Product Reviews
Prompt delivery and excellent packaging too, happy
Good product with full sizing information for a reasonable fit. Will probably settle in with use. Happy with the delivery and packaging which was delivered on time. So a good service that I would use again.
Cool and comfortable
I've always been a user of Alpinestars gloves, but after owning other Spidi gear and seeing their quality, I thought I'd give their gloves a chance. The sizing is spot on, however I found the size guide on the Spidi website was much more useful than the one provided here. It provides sizing for the circumference of the hand, not just the width. See here: http://www.spidi.com/media/fit-guide/Gloves.pdf With fit, comes comfort...initial impressions were excellent. On the first few rides, the cuff of the glove was digging in to my wrist, but this softened up soon enough. I also found that on the inside of the thumb, the crease of the leather is also creasing my skin inside the glove and has felt tender after longer rides, but again, this is improving and I'm sure won't be an issue once the gloves are well and truly broken in. Even with these 'niggles', it's still a superbly comfortable glove. The protection offered is as good as any glove I've worn. Plenty of padding and beautiful knuckle protection. Lastly, one of the most striking and surprising features of the glove was how cool and ventilated it is. You can't tell from the product photos but the leather between each of the fingers is perforated and you really feel the breeze coming into them when riding. This could become a downside in colder weather, but for now, I'm loving the cool relief. I would have given these gloves 5 stars if it wasn't for some initial discomfort...it won't affect everyone and I still highly recommend them.
