Default Alpinestar SP1 Gloves - Mini Review

Just bought some of the below, they are brilliant.

I previously used Richa summer type basic leather gloves that cost me 30......these feel possibly 10times more comfortable and alot safe, the protection is really quite good. The fit is perfect and the adjustment just add to the fit and comfort.

Tried on most gloves available at the moment and these just felt very right compared to the rest.

I didnt want to spend the earth on gloves but needed some new ones. These felt as comfortable and unobstrusive as latex gloves, but then the protection makes your hand feel safer than george bush in the white house.

I tried lots of gloves, more expensive and and cheaper......these seemed just perfect for the above reason. So worth that little bit extra ultimately.
