Great gloves! Love them! I love these gloves, they fit... like a glove. The only downside is that apparently my pinkies are not big enough haha. Other than that, they are amazing! September 28, 2015
Exactly what I was after. Was looking for a well priced short glove with carbon fiber on the knuckles and this glove does exactly what I wanted it for. I don't get the best air movement under them and find myself flipping the cuff up a lot to get a bit more air onto my hands. September 21, 2015
Gloves Bleed These would be a great buy if they didnt bleed all over your hands when they get wet. I wear these everyday back and forth to work here in Florida and it rains almost daily. Every now and then I get caught in it and my gloves are the first things to get soaked. By the time I get home the palms of my hands are covered in black ink. They will do this on hot days as well when my hands start to sweat a bit. They fit well and look pretty nice but I wouldn't recommend them due to the fact that the ink on the material in the palm bleeds like crazy. I have washed them to try to rid it of the extra ink but it just keeps bleeding on me. September 17, 2015
Comfy, but not durable. I picked these gloves up to replace an old pair of gloves that started to wear though at the palms. Picked them up for the carbon knuckle guards and the touch screen bits. Almost immediately the right glove started to tear at the wrist where you fasten the velcro up. Over time, the left glove started to do the same, though not to the degree the right glove did. Sixish months after I bought them, the index finger on the left hand blew out. I did not get into any wrecks, nor did I abuse them. Perhaps I just got a shoddy pair, but as it stands, I would not recommend them from a durability standpoint. But if you want to take the risk of them, they are otherwise a good hot weather glove. Lots of air flow, comfortable, and easy to stow away. Their lack of durability though... It's disappointing for the money. September 9, 2015
Did its' job, Protected my hands This is the only pair of gloves i have owned, so I don't have anything to compare it to. That being said, I did have the misfortune of wrecking at around 30-35 mph and I instinctively put my hands out to catch myself. You can tell they've seen better days, but the gloves, and more importantly my hands, are still intact. On a side note, my AStars Viper Air jacket also protected me. The asphalt went through the denier, but not through the armor. Ride safe! 2013 CBR600RR August 21, 2015
Great Quality Gloves These gloves are very high quality and have great ventilation. Their protection has not been real-world tested (thankfully) but they appear as though they would protect very well. They do run slightly small, though I believe I have large thumbs in proportion to my hand and maybe that exacerbates the issue. I measured my knuckle width as directed in the sizing chart and that part of the gloves fits well for the size recommended. I definitely recommend these gloves to others. August 11, 2015
Love them They look amazing and are comfortable. The only downside to them is that they fit a bit smaller than the older ones. August 10, 2015
Over all a solid glove at a reasonable price The Alpinestars SMX 2 Air Carbon Glove is my third pair of riding gloves and so far it is holding up well. I have only had them for a month at the time of writing this, but in that month I have done 6,000 paved miles and very little dirt. I listened to Anthony in the review video and got an XL and it fits tighter than I had expected, but now that it is stretched a bit, it feels good. The only gripe I have is that the mesh fabric on the tops of the fingers is starting to slightly fray, but I feel that is what you are going to get with a glove that is this breathable. PROS: Short cut, good 3 season glove, breathable and well constructed with a sturdy fit. CONS: Not the softest and most comfortable on the insides, specifically the finger tips. The way the glove is sewn makes the finger tips a bit raw after holding the throttle open for long periods of time. August 9, 2015

Robert B asked: 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? Feb 25, 2015

Daniel A: 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.
