Our Two Cents
The S-1 gloves are sort of a hybrid between a gauntlet style race glove and a short cuff street glove. The glove extends further over the wrist on the outside of the hand, and that part of the glove has a nice padded piece for coverage over the wrist bone. The gloves have molded knuckle and finger protection like many of Alpinestars’ race gloves and the cut of the glove is pre-curved which feels nice on the handle bars. I also like the large leather stretch panel at the base of the thumb which makes it really easy to manipulate the hand. Take the “View Larger Pictures” link above to see these gloves up close.
