Alpinestars SP-8 V2 Leather Gloves - Black / White / Red
Customer Product Reviews
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.
I had to have Alpinestars gloves to replace my worn out my previous SP2 gloves as all my other gear is black Alpinestars too. I tried lots of long gloves from Alpinestars but found many had cumbersome and uncomfortable wrist closures but these SP8 V2's are a great fit all round, lacking the extra wrist strap from more expensive gloves but at less than £70 fantastic value! Look better in the flesh than the pics suggest too. Quick delivery too.
Value for money
If you want a pair of gloves with the pedigree of a top brand but don't want to spend a fortune then these are an excellent value entry level road glove. Well please with mine. Very comfy. Always used the higher level Astars gloves but these are just as good for the road. Great service from Sportsbikeshop too.
