Alpinestars gloves generally fit just a bit more snug than other brands of gloves. Some might notice this while others might not. If you are between sizes, your best shot would be to 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 Pro glove offers extensive gauntlet coverage and excellent protection for racing or aggressive street riding. Typical features found on a glove like this are the molded knuckle protectors, reinforced palm, hard protective gauntlet with Velcro-close wrist strap, etc. This glove also offers a 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. This particular style has another feature I liked when I tried them on… there is a little panel of flex material just past the knuckle on the first and second finger. This panel allows for easier movement and since those are the fingers most used for the clutch and brake, it seems this would be a welcome thing.
Happy Customers Who Bought This Product
Awesome deal on some great gloves! My new favorites! Had a bit of fittiment issue on my part and the fine folks @ MotorcycleGear.com corrected it promptly. Thanks!
I really really like these gloves. If you have relatively slender fingers these will fit great. The perforations between the fingers and above the knuckles allow a lot of air through, makes a great tough summer glove. (Read more...)
