Alpinestars Gloves- New Fall 2010 Gear Reviews

As part of a ton of new and improved gear for the Fall of 2010, Alpinestars released a series of new gloves. And we reviewed them all. From the Alpinestars Arctic Drystar Gloves, that pair perfectly with Alpinestars Durban Jacket and Pants, to the leather functionality of the Alpinestars Vega Drystar Glove, all the way through the Alpinestars Tech Road Gore-Tex Gloves, one of AStars brawniest cold weather waterproof breathable gloves to date. These gloves all offer different levels of functionality and application, and we will
discuss that below after the video reviews.

First is the Alpinestars Arctic Drystar Gloves Review:

Alpinestars Arctic Drystar Gloves
Built with the Cold Weather Adventure Touring rider in mind, the Alpinestars Arctic Drystar Gloves will tackle any wintry conditions. The Arctic Drystar has a full textile upper construction with a Clarino-reinforced goatskin palm. The Goatskin offers a great mix of protection and tactile feel and the reinforcements are in high-wear and impact areas. For protection, there is a hard PU over-molded knuckle with 4mm EVA foam pads on the finger knuckles, wrist, and the top of the hand. The Thinsulate thermal lining provides insulation from cold temperatures and the Drystar membrane gives waterproof breathability. Stretch paneling throughout for comfort and flexibility with a third-fourth high finger bridge for protection of the pinky in a get-off situation. One of our favorite features is the hydrophobic
knitted cuff, which keeps all water out and also provides great windproofing.

Next up is our Alpinestars Vega Drystar Glove Review:

Alpinestars Vega Drystar Gloves
Constructed for Fall-Winter-Spring all-precipitation sport touring, the Alpinestars Vega Drystar Glove is a full cowhide and goatskin build. Like the Arctic, the Vega's goatskin palm provides solid tactility combined with exceptional abrasion resistance. There are synthetic suede reinforcements and 4mm EVA foam padding for added protection. The carbon fiber knuckle offers excellent armor while the high finger bridge protects the pinky from twisting in the event of a fall. There is Thinsulate thermal insulation combined with a velour lining for warmth and comfort. The Drystar built-in membrane gives remarkable waterproof breathability and the reinforced wrist cuff and landing zone ensure added protection.

Finally, our Alpinestars Tech Road Gore-Tex Glove Review:

Alpinestars Tech Road Gore-Tex Gloves
Offering the highest level of waterproof breathability with a Gore-Tex membrane, the Alpinestars Tech Road Gore-Tex Gloves are the ultimate in slick design and high-level performance for Fall-Winter-Spring all-precipitation riding. They are constructed from full-grain leather with Stone PU palm reinforcements for safety and accordion stretch paneling for mobility.The knuckle is a PU protection system and there is 4mm EVA foam padding injections at the finger knuckles and thumb. The Tech Roads have a velour insulating liner with a thinner micro-fleece in the palm, designed for use with heated grips. Like the previous two gloves, there is a high finger bridge that protects the pinky. When it comes to cold weather touring, this is the pick from Alpinestars.
