Sizing Information

Like most Alpinestars gloves, these gloves run a bit smaller than most glove brands we carry. If you are sometimes between sizes, then choose the larger of the two. 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 SPX Air Carbon V2 gloves by Alpinestars have the looks and features of a sport/street glove, but it has a short cuff and strategic mesh panels to make them more comfortable for everyday use in warmer weather.

The body of this glove is all leather which has the strength to hold together in case of a fall. But being a short cuff design, it works better for everyday use, especially in the summer. The back side of the cuff is a mesh material so there will be pretty good air flow. There are small panels of mesh on the sides of the thumb and in between the fingers too.

Other safety feature you’ll find here: vented/molded hard knuckle protector, hard slider in the heel of the hand and extra reinforcement on the side of the hand and pinkie. Speaking of the pinkie, this glove (like nearly all Alpinestars gloves) has a small leather piece that connects the pinkie and ring finger of each glove. This is a safety feature designed to add strength to the more fragile pinkie in case of a fall. Sort of like a splint helps protect an injured finger from damage by coupling it to the adjacent finger. Also present is touch screen compatible material on the index finger so street riders can work their phones with the gloves on.

I think you’ll find this glove easy to wear on a daily basis, and the pricing, being under a hundred bucks makes them reasonably priced for a glove with some significant protective features. Both men’s and women’s versions are available. Take the link below to view the other gender choices. :: Paul, 04-02-19

Alpinestars says: Built to beat the heat, this light CE-certified glove features a leather and mesh chassis to provide optimal ventilation for warm weather performance riding. Incorporating innovative carbon and polymer compound protection, this pre-curved glove is fully optimized for warm weather performance riding. It’s practical too and has a touchscreen compatible fingertip for use with GPS systems and smartphones.
