Alpinestars Supertech Gloves

Recommended Posts

If you value feel at the bars combined with excellent protection, put a set of Supertech Gloves on your hands. Developed hand-in-hand (pun intended) with MotoGP riders, every aspect of this design is built for the performance rider. It’s all built on top-grade kangaroo and cowhide leather components that are precisely cut and stitched together. The first time you examine these gloves, it’s worth noting the stitch work – the nuances thereof are purposeful and precise; not a single thread is wasted! For lack of a better term, everything is held into position efficiently.

Affixed to the three of the larger finger tips on the posterior side and the palm, you’ll find sashes of Keprotech. This particular material almost has an abrasive feel to it, but it’s there to provide an additional layer of protection should you hit the ground. These areas are the ones most often to contact pavement when the unfortunate occurs. Though hopefully, you’ll never find out how effective they are. For long-term wear resistance, an extra layer of leather is sewn in where your hands spend most of their time in contact with the handlebars. Most noticeably, however, will be the third and fourth finger bridge. This piece of material not only adds another layer of protection for the top of the hands, but serves as an extra brace against breaks for the bones of the pinkies.

Looking elsewhere, to provide additional protection, and a degree of ventilation, thermoplastic polyurethane inserts dot the knuckles, proximal phalanges of the index, middle and ring fingers, and an enclosure that wraps around the wrist to secure the glove in position. Combined, these elements provide a significant degree of abrasion resistance, and also – quite a bit of additional ventilation at the knuckles. The latter of which Alpinestars calls their Dynamic Friction Shield. You’ll call it air conditioning when you’re on the move!

Inside, the glove is lined with a comfortable Kevlar layer between the top of the hand and completely around the thumb and pinkie finger. It’s all pre-curved for a comfortable fit that won’t bunch up as you head down the road.

MotoGP-level protection is where it’s at with these gloves. No rider would scoff at these beauties. From the first time pull them out of the box – yes, they come in their own box – to the first ride, you’ll truly appreciate their worth.  Nary a finer glove you will find!

MSRP $399.95
