Alpinestars SMX-1 Air V2 Mixed Gloves - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Have always used Alpinestar gloves and after retiring my Alpinestars Scheme Aramid Glove I needed a ligthweight/summer glove. These have loosened up pretty nicely after one ride. As with Alpinestars, would recommend going one size up if you have used other brands such as RST... my RST winter gloves are a Small and all my Alpinestar Gloves are Mediums.
Lovely quality gloves and a bargain at £45 courtesy of a price match. They cannot be compared to my previous ARMR SHL225 gloves. I've had them a few weeks and they're loosening up nicely and are extremely comfortable. The lack of tabs to help pull them on, and short Velcro wrist straps that don't even go over my watch prevent a 5 star score.
Perfect summer glove
A very comfy summer glove from the outset. A great looking glove with all necessary protection, yet providing great ventilation. I see many riders in the summer risking the ride without gloves because hands get warm, but they would be well advised to try these.
Perfect hot weather glove!
Wanted a glove that was short with good airflow for the hot weather we've been getting this year. These didn't disappoint. First pair of Alpinestars gloves I've owned and the quality is great. Very comfortable after the first few rides, great airflow to keep your hands cool. They feel like they would offer some good protection if needed. Love the carbon knuckle protector. Great value at £50.
Great gloves! These gloves look great and are super comfortable. I would recommend looking into what size you need. Normally I'd were normal size gloves but got large and they're still quite snug. Got these because I had very similar ones for about 5 years and they took a lot of hammer so thought I'd treat myself. Really good quality.
Summer Glove - Always buy bigger
Nice glove very well made but the sizing is very difficult to get right. I went up a size from what was quoted on the sizing chart but ended going up several sizes to a 3 XL, which is ridiculous tbh. Haven't used then as yet, but they will be ideal for riding in Australia at temperatures in excess of 30F because of the open weave construction.
Good quality lightweight short cuff gloves. Need a bit of breaking in as quite snug to start with. Ventilation is good and they dry quickly if they get wet. Armour sits well over knuckles and stitching looks good. Very pleased with them.
These gloves are an excellent buy and a must have in this warm weather and being Alpinestars you know it's a Brand you can trust, the quality and fit is superb and they definitely keep your hands cooler and protected. I would highly recommend these gloves if your looking for a summer pair.
