Rock solid and brand new for this Autumn, Alpinestars brings us two completely new gloves, which are redesigned for hardcore riding, just in time for those crisp fall rides!
The Alpinestars GP Pro, already a premier and popular glove in the line-up, has implemented a number of improved features. Included in these advancements is K-Tech Kevlar, bringing together Kevlar, leather and foam to create a wall of protection and superior abrasion resistance to the most vulnerable phalange: the pinkie. Kevlar is also used as the inner lining on the top of the hand and thumb. Another new feature is found in the L-shaped PU slider for even more abrasion resistance. Other niceties on the glove include ventilation via an abrasion resistant backhand vent and a patented racing finger bridge (which keeps the little finger in place). This bridge feature also helps eliminate abrasion of your finger and the surrounding exterior seams. The New GP Pro is available in five colors.

The Alpinestars GP Plus is a hair less technical from the GP Pro, but is also a track worthy glove. The new changes to this glove incorporate the addition of the PU palm slider and two new colors. Other attributes of this glove you may already be familiar with include a full grain bovine leather construction, goatskin leather inserts, and DFS Thermo injected finger (and knuckle) protectors. This glove, like the Pro, also has the Alpinestars patented racing finger bridge that prevents finger separation and stops twisting around the fourth finger in the event of a slide. The Plus is available in four colors.
