Alpinestars GP Pro Gloves

The Alpinestars GP Pro Gloves combine supremely high performance, protection, comfort and flexibility into a sleek, ergonomic and lightweight design, tested to the limit in Alpinestars MotoGP and WSB race program.

Nicky Hayden and Carlos Checa are just a couple of the world-class riders that have provided direct input into the design and development of the Alpinestars GP Pro Leather Racing Gloves. They accept nothing less than the best and neither should you.

Features:

  • Full grain bovine leather and goatskin leather construction
  • Kangaroo leather palm
  • Reinforced bovine leather side panel
  • Race-proven DFS thermo injected knuckle protection system to absorb and dissipate impact
  • DFS thermo injected finger and wrist inserts
  • Palm slider landing zone
  • Double wrist closure firmly secures the glove ensuring improved protection
  • Abrasion resistant molded soft wrist vent inserts
  • Internal Kevlar liner on top of hand and thumb
  • Internal K-Tech Kevlar little finger lining for superior impact and abrasion resistance
  • K-Tech Kevlar consists of 2 layers of Kevlar layered with 2 layers of leather and a layer EVA foam padding for protection from both impact and abrasion
  • Alpinestars patented finger-bridge prevents finger separation and stops twisting around the fourth finger in the event of a slide
  • External finger and palm seams for a close fit and superior feel
  • Accordion stretch panels on thumb, index, middle and ring fingers for reduced flex-resistance

Not very durable
Hit the ground in these and the stitching literally popped open on the pinky. That's because it's outerstitching where the stitches are exposed and get ripped instantly, pretty much nullifying any protection these gloves might provide you with.

Crashed tested. low side at 100+ mph. gloves held up great. seems stayed together, and the plastic slider on the palm does wonders! after crashing the only injury to my hand was a heat burn on the meat below the pinky finger.

Nice looking glove, horrendous build quality
I have always been a fan of Alpinestars, but recently their quality has hit rock bottom. I have bought 2 pairs of the GP Pro glove, and the first pair fell apart immediately. The stitching on the index finger came apart after wearing the glove 3-4 times. I decided to give Alpinestars another chance. Revzilla was great, and facilitated a warranty claim. Alpinestars came through and replaced the gloves.

I've been wearing the 2nd pair for about a year, and they have started to come apart at the seams in 2 different places. The thread that Alpinestars uses frays VERY easily, and seems to be extremely poor quality. At $240, these aren't the most expensive sport gloves available, but they're not budget items either. I'm extremely disappointed, and will be searching for a different brand. It's a pity their build quality is so terrible, since Alpinestars makes great looking gear, with good features.

If you value looks over function and durability, then these gloves are great. Otherwise, spend your money on something better.

best track glove i've worn so far
Ok. First off they run snug so go a size up. I measure an 8 - 8.5 in the palm and I got a large and they fit the best because medium gp pro's were painfully too tight. I wear a medium in dainese short cuff and a large in dainese gauntlets.

Vs. Dainese Carbon long D1: the GP Pro's finger boxes 100x more comfy. the elasticated stretch panel on back of the dainese's back of hand/wrist flex zone is cheap/cheesy. only thing the dainese's have going for them is their wrist strap closure and their floating knuckle panel moves more freely *take notes A*s...

VS- Dainese Druid D1 long: good thumb flex zone elastication but the carbon fiber hard part on the back of the hand on every pair i tried on was out of place like the glove was twisted. foam wrist padding is a joke I want hard parts!

VS- Knox handroid- the boa system is AMAZING but even in a size large the finger boxes were super tight about to rip the stitches it felt. killed my pinky and painful in the webbing between my index and middle finger. pinky protector cable thing would pop out of its guide. cool idea still needs refining.

THE GP PRO: i wish there were hard parts on the pinky lateral zone and i wish the wrist strap metal loop wasnt on the inside of the wrist because it bites down and hurts my wrist bone when cinched down (dainese does that part right)

Overall the gp pro is the winner of the pack. comfy *for a track gauntlet* easy to get in and out of, sturdy design in terms of the quality of leather used throughout the glove, the huge wrap around hard part used for the wrist closure is awesome and the elasticated panel they use for the thumb is great. 4.5 out of 5 on this bad boy.

p.s. dont buy the dainese's dont buy the knox.

Very good, could still use improvement.
Overall, these are excellent gloves. They look awesome, provide tremendous amounts of protection, and have a great feel. I have had my GP Pros for a year and here is what I think of them.

The pros.
Excellent airflow. Great looks. Great protection. The upper inside of the glove is kevlar lined. Confidence inspiring feel and offer a high level of dexterity. Easy to manipulate bike controls. Virtually any jacket cuff will fit inside the gauntlet. True to size fitment.

Cons.
The white Alpinestars graphics started fading quickly. Even though I bought the correct size, after about four months of daily use, the palms started to bunch a bit. It's not bad enough to throw them away, but it's annoying. After about six months of short commute daily use, some of the seams have come undone on the fingers. Even though I have since bought new gloves, I have had them repaired. The gloves are not nearly as comfortable as they were when they were new. It's like you can feel everything inside the glove, but when they were new, it felt like you were not wearing gloves at all. I would say the lifespan of these glove when used daily is about six to eight months.

Would I buy them again? Even though it seems about time to retire them after about a year, yes I would buy them again.

Awesome Gloves!
Hey there,

I've purchased these gloves after reading tons of reviews and details and information about them. I was mainly caught between these, the Knox Handroid, and the GP Tech. The Held Titan gloves were also a possibility but I wasn't too sure about their sizing and didn't want to take a $400 gamble.

Main things: There are many fakes of this glove going around. Revzilla ships the originals of course. There is no color problems (I got the black ones with red lines), all of the perforations are uniform, not random, are completely punched out (no perforations have half a hole still there), you can see the yellow layer of kevlar if you look inside of the glove, there are no bad stitches or threads hanging around, the stretch panel is nice and tight instead of very wide or loose, and there are no external seams which appear on fake gloves.

Now that the "genuine" checklist has been completed, the performance. Some users complain that these gloves have started to come undone. I haven't found that to be true, but I guess that use, conditions, and other factors might change this. My hand is 20.5cm in diameter as per the size chart and I ordered a size Large. They fir perfectly. The cooling is great, the kangaroo leather palm feels nice, and I feel very safe and protected.

The reason I bought these gloves instead of other competitors is because the GP Tech is less comfortable, Knox Handroid has had several batches where the stitching comes undone, and the Held Phantoms were just a shot in the dark regarding size.

Can't beat the styling...
Honestly speaking, $250 is a bit much for a pair of gloves, but I didn't want to skimp on hand protection, considering that the hands will be one of the first parts of your body to hit the ground. Just for the record, I've also got a pair of the Dainese Full Metal RS gloves, which I might rate SLIGHTLY higher, but consider that these are an extra $100 compared to the Alpinestars GP-Pro gloves.

First things first, in terms of protection and styling, you can't beat the GP-Pro gloves. I've got a bunch of my idiot friends who always take them from me and put them on because they simply like how they look in them (both riders and non-riders). The knuckle protection, ring/pinkie reinforcement, and plastic shielding around the wrist are excellent.

The gloves definitely breathe, and I've had them for almost 3 weeks now, and I feel like they've already been broken in after just several rides. My hands get a bit chilly in temps under 55 degrees, but I'm sure that in warmer weather, the breathability will really come into play.

All in all, an excellent product from Alpinestars.

Great but don't use daily
My GP Pros from 2012 match Napalm's review exactly. When new, they were like a second skin but after getting caught in the rain once with them they started to fray along the stitching. The white leather wears off and the seam on the fingerprint area of my left middle finger on my left completely busted open. I love them for the protection and comfort but they are not durable enough to be used daily.

Absolutely not worth the price.
I purchased these gloves in March for this season. I'm in WNY and thus didn't start riding until mid-April. It's now the end of June and the index finger seam has become completely unraveled and my index finger is now exposed. For $240 this is completely unacceptable. I don't even want to think about what would happen to my hands should I go down in these things. A friend order the GP Tech gloves and had the same problem out of the box. I took a risk on these and am now paying the price in more ways than one.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THESE GLOVES. Spend your hard-earned money on a different glove from a manufacturer that has a functional quality assurance department.

You need your hands to make a living. These will not protect them.

Glove Has Been RMA'd Twice
1) I love the styling of these gloves
2) I love the fit of these gloves
3) I hate that the tip of the index finger on the right hand split wide open one day
4) Went to Alpinestars for repair and came back kind gnarly (they outsource the repairs at the California facility)
5) Threading started to come undone and was RMA'd again
6) That was all within 3 months of use.
7) I expected a lot better for that much coin.

I had a Kawasaki Ninja 636 and needed gloves for twisty's in the mountains, it did the job. I really like how comfortable it was for my hands, I wore XXL in motorcycle gloves, the pink bridge made it awkward so I cut that piece off. The velcro on the gauntlet pulled apart from the rigid plastic so I glued it back. Eventually the velcro stopped working because I used it so much. I ride year-round so I applied some Obernauf's protectant to keep the leather in great condition.
James L on Nov 5, 2015
Bought for when I had a ninja, basically one of the best street gloves you can get, the protection is unreal. Gets real hot unless you are really moving but the race grade protection is worth it. Would not have to worry about going down over 100 with these gloves (at least with your hands)

I own a pair of "Five rfx gloves in Large, how would these fit compared?
A shopper on Mar 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They run small. A medium or large should fit me, but I took an XL in this glove...
Was looking for a pair of gloves for track and aggressive weekend riding.
Requirements are - comfort, palm, wrist and pinky protection and overall protection and quality of build

In my budget I am looking at the A-Star GP Pro, Dainese Carbon Cover ST and the Dainese Druids ST.

The Dainese has a better review while the A-Star seems to have better wrist and pinky protection.

Can someone help?
A shopper on Apr 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I can't really speak for the Dainese, but I got the GP Pros two seasons ago, and I've been wearing them lets say 3-4 times a week ever since.

The only obvious thing is that they're pretty stiff when you first get to use them since they're brand new, and might not feel THAT comfy, but after a couple hours of breaking in they were adjusted perfectly and almost felt as if I wasnt wearing any gloves at all. Pinky is tied with Ring Finger and has a couple layers of leather on the outside and on the palm.

Wrist is secured with a solid piece that goes about 2-3 inches further to protect the outside of the wrist. Knuckles are also very well protected and solid as well.

I only went to the track a couple times with them, but i still wear them almost daily and they are still in great shape. I never fell/crashed with them too. I would certainly recommend this article, just make sure to order the right size and if they feel a little tight at first remember that they will settle after a couple hours!
I was wondering which glove you guys would recommend for daily riding...the Alpinestars SP-1 or the Alpinestars GP Pro?

I'm looking for protection, however I won't be on the track at all.
Todd B on Feb 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: For daily riding on the street, I'd go with the SP-1 hands down. A good quality glove at a reasonable price. I strictly use my GP PRO gloves for the track where I need the best protection possible in case you go down. I actually have three different pairs of gloves that I use for street (short version, long version ) and a track glove. You should always consider cost, reliability, and protection whenever purchasing motorcycle gear...then go with the product that best suits your needs. Happy riding.
how is this compared to a* apex drystar gloves during cold weather (-10 to 0 degrees celsius / 38 F)? is it waterproof/resistant? and does it keep heat well?
Charles Gabriel C on Dec 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This isn't a glove for keeping warm. There is no thermal lining like the drystar, which I also own, nor are there any water resistant features. It's a comfortable glove in the cooler summer months, but not something I would venture out in sub 50 degree weather in.
About how many hours to break in these gloves? The weather has not really been cooperative lately, so I've been wearing around the house, and try to keep my fist clenched, but I'm beginning to wonder if XL is too small. Specifically I feel there is too much pressure around the hand, and thumb might be a bit too short.

Widest measurement is about 4" across the palm, 8.5" circumference relaxed, 9.5" clenched.

Any tricks to speed up break-in?
Michael E on Dec 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have these gloves and find that they run a bit small. Since I got mine in the Spring, they broke in with use. They are still a bit tight and probably always will be. Mostly a hassle getting the on and off, they work pretty well once they are on. You might consider a larger size, if available. If you want to keep those, I have found that moisture (sweat in my case) usually is the best for breaking in gloves. They will stretch a bit once they get damp and dry to your hand. If you try moisture, do not artificially dry them because that will shrink them. Found that out drying a pair of other leather gloves once after getting caught in a heavy rain.
Does it offer good amount of air flow? i live in tropical area where temp may easily goes 110+ Thanks!
Dawin W on May 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have worn mine all day and they stay fairly cool. I would never say they get uncomfortable. I ride in Florida so they work fine. Mine took awhile to break in and they do seem to run a little small.
Alright so, i got a A* SMX-2 short cuff carbon gloves for summer, and just bought A* drystar gloves for cold weather.

I'm thinking of this glove as a great upgrade for the SMX-2 since that doesn't have much protection other than the carbon knuckles. Any other recommendations for summer/warm weather glove with better protection than SMX-2?
Charles Gabriel C on Dec 31, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I have the A* GP Pro Gloves and absolutely love them. Very secure fit and really comfortable after the initial break in.
The protection is top notch, in both the armor and stitching. Having the ring finger and the pinkie connected with a web probably saved me from breaking my pinkie on a high speed low side.
The gloves came through with most of the armor scratched but no tears. They are worth every penny I paid for them.
Can anyone comment on the size of the gauntlet opening on these? I've been having trouble finding a glove whose gauntlet fits over the sleeve of my jacket/suit. So far, the only glove I've found w/ an opening big enough is the Scorpion Clutch--which has the dual-style opening--but I had some other fit issues with that glove.
Pechorin75 on Jul 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I've worn these over four different jackets without a problem. The gauntlets are substantial. Overall I think the gloves are great - little to no break-in, substantial but not restrictive, can't feel a ton of airflow but my hands stay dry and comfortable in hot weather.
Hi,

I currently have Spidi Carbo 3 gloves in USA XL (EUR 9.5) and they fit perfectly.
What size do you think I should buy for the A* GP Pro?

Thanks.
A shopper on Nov 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Howdy, I find the GP Pro fit a bit smaller than the rest, so you'd probably want to go one size up, XXL.
I wear a medium in the A* Apex Drystar glove which has a liner. Would I still wear a medium in this glove? I understand they should be tight initially, but the comments seem to vary on whether these run too small or not. Thx.
tarzansam on May 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I can't comment on the fit compared to the Apex Drystar gloves but I had to go one size up from my normal glove size with these. As they are unlined the inside is quite rough with leather seams, and can be really uncomfortable if the fit is too tight.
