Alpinestars gloves generally fit just a bit more snug than other brands of gloves. This particular model seems to run even smaller than most Alpinestars gloves . Unless you want to try and get a really snug fit, we’d advise you try one size larger than you’d normally buy in other brands, and if you sometimes in between sizes in an Alpinestars glove, then choose larger. Hopefully you’ve had some experience with buying gloves and can choose based upon the fit of a previous pair. If you have no previous experience with glove sizing, go here for help.
Our Two Cents
The GP Plus gloves are an “upper-level” street/race glove. They have a few less features than a full-on race glove, but they are also value priced. A few key things that are good to have: a Velcro-close wrist strap to ensure the gloves stay in place in case of a fall, a molded knuckle protector and reinforcement material in the palm of the hand. I like the overall comfort in this glove. The leather is soft and easily shapes to the hand. The large stretch leather section on the side of the thumb helps with comfort. Check out the connection between the third and fourth finger (take the “View Larger Pictures” link above to see a good close-up shot of this). This connecting piece helps protect the smallest two fingers from damage in case of a slide. The two smallest fingers are most susceptible to injury and tying them together helps protect both.
