Alpinestars SP-8 Leather Gloves - Black / White / Yellow
Customer Product Reviews
Great gloves for Summer
I bought a pair of these from somewhere else a month or so ago, and went XL when using the Alpinestars size guide. I found them very snug! So much so that the Velcro ripped when I was pulling them on! Managed to return those, and then got some XXL from Sportsbikeshop ☺️ When I try them on initially they feel really loose and too big, but don't forget your hands swell when riding - especially in warmer weather! So when I'm riding they feel great! So if In doubt, always go one size bigger, and make sure there's plenty of room for full range of motion. I'll be getting something more substantial and probably XL for winter
Good light weight gloves
Definately not Alpinestar's best product, the first pair i recieved the elastic became unstitched. Also they seem not fit my fingers well, and the thumb is particularly bad ! Having had plenty of Alpinestar gloves and products over the years which are very high quality and fit very well, these are probably the least qualitly item I've got from this brand.
Well Made Gloves
As with my other Alpinestars purchases, I was very impressed with the Quality of these Gloves. Ideal for summer riding , nice and light and comfortable to wear. Just what I was after. Fast Delivery and good correspondence with tracking.
Good glove. Good price
I was looking to get some replacement gloves as my existing ones were getting a bit old and 'crusty'. I tried on a number of pairs and decided to go with a known brand (who also make my boots). Not disappointed with the quality and fit, although obviously the leather will stretch a bit over time. I do not anticipate any problems in this department. The mid range price (and discount from SBS) make these gloves excellent value for what I have paid for them.
Unimpressed by comfort
Look / feel like a great glove, then I put them on ... where the stiching between the panels of material making up the fingers bulge inwards and irritate may finger after very short time. I have exchanged and tried a second pair of these (made easy with SPORTSBIKESHOP! Great.) as thought it was a quality problem / error. Unfortunately the second pair is worse / multiple fingers. Try them at a shop if you can?
Nice quality summer glove
Taking a few rides to bed in but I think they are going to be super comfy. They look cool and have great protection. Fit under my jacket sleeves. Maybe could do with a wrist enclosure/strap but that's my only slight concern.
