This product has changed over time.
I've purchased several sets of these gloves over the years. Over time the quality of fabrication and materials has declined. A side by side comparison of my previous set shows reduced padding, leather, and carbon fiber. This will be my last set of stunt gloves from AlpineStars until I see some improvement.

Good product overall but build quality is lacking
Overall I love these gloves for summer riding as they breath well, are easy to get on and off, and are generally comfortable. However, build quality is really sub-par in my opinion for this price. Mine frequently fray and the quality of the stitching was pretty poor. To the point where I had someone redo the stitching on a few of the fingers, especially the thumbs.

Comfortable but poor build quality
I've had these gloves for about 2 months of daily commuting now and they are starting to look a bit worn. The mesh around the finger tips has gotten fuzzy and the touch screen fingertips feel much harder to use than when they were new.

I don't know how much I would trust them in a crash, the material feels very thin. It's too hot to wear much else however so it is a compromise i'm happy to make.

Solid glove, but know the compromises
After a year of this glove I feel I have a comprehensive opinion of what it is.

The glove is a great for summer and high heat days. Flows a lot of air, never felt hot. Drawback is with this material, the protection feels minimal. Doubt I'd want to go down at highway speeds with these. Not a lot of palm protection. Didn't have much faith in the stitching, and after a year the gloves have developed holes. The knuckle protection was a plus, though it probably could have been better placed on my hand. I was between sizes so I went with the smaller due to the capacitive touch feature in the glove and the fact I thought they'd break in some, which they did. Maybe it would have been better on the larger glove, didn't try it. Found the areas on the glove for touchscreen capability a bit lacking since they weren't reliable for operating my phone but it was better than nothing. For what it's worth, I ride around 10,000 miles a year and most of that is 10 - 30 miles a trip in the city. So I take my gloves on and off a LOT. If you do as well, I would consider something more durable. If you ride less or longer distances for your trips they may work better for you. Then again, do you want to trust in a glove that wears out from taking it on and off a lot? Your call.

Who designed the finger lengths??
Picked up a set of these gloves for warmer weather riding. I typically wear a Large in Alpinestars gloves, but found I needed to step up to an XL in this glove to get it to fit my palm. Feels great in that regard, but that is where it stops. The finger lengths - particularly the pinky finger - is all messed up. The pinky finger on these gloves is as long as the index finger. Who has a pinky finger that long?? Nobody. Palm fits great. fingers leave sooooooooooo much to be desired.

Looks great, and falls apart pretty well too
The good stuff:
The materials feel great, and the protection is pretty solid for riding around town or touring. They're also great looking gloves. The mesh flows a lot of air and keep your hands cool in the heat, which is exactly what I was looking for when I bought them.

The bad stuff:
The mesh material on the back of the thumb and the fingers tends to get caught a bit in the velcro cuff strap when putting them on and taking them off, which pulls fibers out so now they look all fuzzy. The touchscreen material in the fingers and thumbs worked great when I first pulled them on the box, but it doesn't work much at all now. It will sometimes pick up if I use the material that's on the edge of the contact patch, but it's honestly easier to just take the gloves off rather than trying to fiddle around with hitting buttons ten times with the edge of my fingertip until my phone actually picks up the contact. The internal seam at the thumb tip is a bit thick too, and with pressure on the handlebars pulling the thumb of the glove into my thumb, that seam tends to dig in under my thumbnails and it gets a little uncomfortable after a while.

The ugly stuff:
My main complaint is just the build quality isn't up to what I expect from Alpinestars. There are strings hanging off both thumbs and around the cuff of the glove. There are actually a couple of seams that are beginning to separate, one around the base of the thumbs where the mesh meets the leather (more on the left glove, but the right is starting to go as well), and another where the leather looks like it's actually tearing between the thumb and the back of the hand on the right glove. The right had glove also has a second set of perforations in the leather around the palm padding, as though they screwed it up the first time they sewed them together, so it got pulled apart and restitched.

This amount of wear is very disappointing in a glove I paid $80 for less than a month ago (purchased 17 April, delivered APO overseas ~25 April), and I haven't even hit 50 miles ridden wearing them.

The end:
If it weren't for the lacking build quality, I would recommend them. Given the amount of wear they're showing with how little I've used them, I can't recommend purchasing these gloves. I also don't feel that the protection would be adequate if the seams are splitting - what would happen if I actually went down in them? Unless Alpinestars somehow improves the construction process, stick to the previous incarnation of the Air Carbons.

Great, comfortable warm weather gloves
I bought these gloves so that I would be more likely to wear protection on 90° days. The ventilation and airflow are great and I have never felt my hands sweating.

A few notes:
* When the gloves are new they are a bit hard in some spots. For me this caused a persistent cut in the knuckle of my pinky. This issue went away after a few weeks of wear.
* The touch screen compatible thumb and index finger work to some extent but require very deliberate presses to get my iPhone to register. Additionally, while tapping works and dragging is somewhat usable, I cannot reliably perform any two-finger operations with the phone.
* The velcro wrist straps have a tendency to catch on the mesh fabric if they come in contact. This is leading to some fraying.

Overall my complaints are minor and when you're actually riding they aren't even issues. I would definitely buy these gloves again.

Looks nice stitching comes out easy
These gloves look great and flow air really well. However the fibers of the gloves come out way to easy from the stitching. For the price you pay for these gloves I am not sure they will hold up for more than a season. Would have expected a better quality from this company.

Amazing Comfort, Lackluster Durability
I use these gloves as my preferred riding gloves for work commute & weekend rides. They are amazingly comfortable, have great airflow, & look great. The downside to this glove is its ability to hold up to everyday use. After only a few weeks, the rubber patches are peeling off. The mesh/textile material always gets snagged by the velcro causing it to get frayed. The ability for it to work with mobile devices are a plus but after 6 months of use, it doesn't respond as well to my iPhone 6. These glove will probably be good for a year or two with great care.

Good for about 3 months
Bought these gloves on April 13, 2016 and they've just failed on July 22, 2016. These gloves are super stylish and they feel great. But the quality doesn't seem to be on par. Put my gloves on while walking to my bike at work and the Velcro came right off the gloves.. Sad day my friends.

HI i would like to purchase these gloves... but i do not know what size to get??
i measured my had and i got 4''. should i get a large or x-large. thank you for your help.
A S on Oct 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The gloves in my opinion run a size small. So for example I wear a size large mechanix glove for work, but use an XL for the alpine star gloves.
How long before they STOP turning my palms black?
A C on Jul 18, 2016
I and a few others tried on these gloves when they came in the mail and all of us said the pinky is much longer than the rest. Is it supposed to be this log and will the gloves wear in so that it fits properly?
Robert B on Feb 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Mine are pretty much dead on except for the thumb where I have some slack. It got better over time when the glove gets more worn in but it wasn't that much of a big deal to begin with.

My previous smx 2 did have a defect where one thumb was shorter and tighter than the other, so it could be a defect.
