RevZilla's Favorite Fall Alpinestars Gloves for 2011

Throughout this past year, and the last ten-plus years for that matter, Alpinestars has had many popular products amongst the motorcycle riding community. Alpinestars Gloves in particular were a big success. Their three most popular gloves amongst riders were the Alpinestars Apex Drystar Gloves, the Alpinestars SP-X Gloves, and the Alpinestars Arctic Drystar Gloves. It comes as no surprise as Alpinestars has always been known to create high quality yet stylish gloves enabling riders to get the best of both worlds, and these gloves are no exception.

First up, we'll take a look at the Alpinestars Apex Drystar Gloves Review:



These gloves contain a mix of leather and textile to provide a comfortable feel for the city commuter or easy touring rider. Additionally, the Apex glove features an extra warm and cozy thermal velour liner combined with Alpinestars 100% waterproof and breathable Drystar membrane to keep cold and wet weather away from hands. They feature a goatskin glove chassis with padded textile palm reinforcements and a molded PU knuckle and foam padding on fingers. They also include an ultra-flexible accordion textile on top of the hand and around the thumb and a full-length wrist gauntlet with dual wrist adjustment and an accordion panel for flex in the gauntlet area.

Next we'll take a glimpse at the Alpinestars SP-X Gloves Review:




They are composed of a full-grain leather and air mesh construction therefore making them sport/multi-purpose, lightweight riding gloves. For additional protection, they include a synthetic suede palm with leather reinforcements for improved grip and protection and carbon fiber knuckle, side palm and finger protection. To further protect yourself, Alpinestars has featured micro-injected knuckle protection, a leather-reinforced thumb, and EVA padded wrist protection. Comfort-wise, they come with silicone printing on the fingertips for increased grip and a neoprene cuff for comfort.

Last, but not least, we'll check out the Alpinestars Arctic Drystar Gloves Review:



These are particular interesting as they are meant for all seasons except for extreme weather seasons (winter, summer) and were made particularly for on and off road ADV touring. They are constructed of a blend of a textile upper construction and goatskin palm construction with clarino reinforcement. For additional protection they have included over-molded hard PU knuckle protection and 4mm EVA foam padding on top of the hand, fingers and wrist, and a high finger bridge for protection on your two outer fingers. For comfort, they have integrated accordion stretch inserts on top of hand and fingers, pre-curved finger construction, and the Drystar waterproof breathable membrane.

Another solid batch of products from Alpinestars to complement their new run of redesigned boots and shoes.
