Great gloves I got these for my daughter when she comes riding with me. She says they are very comfortable and make her feel good wearing them. May 11, 2015
A bit premature but... Only did 150 miles today but my initial impressions are on the positive side. On the fitment side and sticking with only A* gloves they are consistent. I wear a large in A* and have A* Apex DS and SMX-3 Air. All three fit me well enough. I would have preferred the micro velcro as provided on the Apex DS but won't complain too much. Velcro is Velcro but the micro is nice and provides enough "stick" when it comes to the gauntlets. Regarding air flow...cold mornings you will feel air flow. Hot afternoons you may not notice but it is there. These are not a "mesh" summer glove. The perforations work without sacrificing protection. They do feel a bit weird going from a full mesh to a full "winter" glove but I acclimated just fine today. I needed something in between and these do seem to fit the bill. I think after a little break in period they will be very nice gloves. I'll come back and update if I find a serious flaw but so far I like them well enough. They are a bit stiff but being leather I think they will "loosen up" and conform to my hands and be a pretty good all around glove for commuting. My commute consists of high desert extremes (cold and hot) to heading down to valley extremes of warm and extremely hot. They did well enough today with 50ish morning temps and high 80ish/low 90ish temps coming home. Time will tell... April 28, 2015
Solid looking and feeling gloves I ordered XL gloves I have fairly large hands The gloves seemed somewhat tight. Especially over my knuckles where the hard guard piece is. After wearing them for about a week they fit nicely. the gloves look sharp in person! I would recommend this to anyone looking to buy a pair of solid guanlet style riding gloves! April 20, 2015
Great product!! This is my first pair of gloves, so I don't have much to compare them to. However, I can say that this are great gloves! The fit was slightly big but nothing to worry about, it only allows for some better motion. The air flow was good, air wasn't always noticeable but it is definitely there when you need it. The material feels durable, and the layers feel solid enough to provide great protection when needed, especially the knuckle area. The only thing I can note (not necessarily a problem) is the pre-curve given to the shape of the glove makes it a little difficult to reach controls such as the turn light control, although I'm sure it is due to the style of the glove. Overall this is a great pair of gloves. 10/10 I would recommend this to any new riders, as it is very affordable and full of features. Not to mention the great styling. March 30, 2015
First Gloves, very happy New to riding as of last summer. I'm an artist and musician, so I was very worried about my hands. I did a lot of shopping around and went with these gloves. I'm extremely satisfied and wear them every time I get on the bike. Great quality without breaking the bank. They are very comfortable; the best fitting pair of gloves I've ever owned (went with size medium, I usually find that gloves are way too long in the fingers but these fit perfect). Most importantly for me though, I feel protected. I haven't had to *test* that yet, and hopefully never will, but it takes a weight off my mind and lets me focus and ride with confidence. I've had my pair for about a year now, and they have held up wonderfully. The rubbery material over the knuckle armor has gotten scuffed very slightly (I'm not sure how, maybe from opening my garage) but that's it. None of the seams show any signs of wear or loosening. Fun note- the sort of 'felt' material on the lower palm works pretty good for wiping rain off your visor. I rode through one of the worst storms I've ever seen with these. In the end I got completely soaked, and a bunch of dye leeched out turning my hands blue for a few days, but the gloves came out seemingly unaffected. March 30, 2015
Nice gloves Needed track gloves and this one was a perfect fit. It fits nicely and comfy as well. The only problem is that the air flow isn't that great but I can live with that. Overall awesome set of gloves. Good for a day at the track. March 23, 2015
Great gloves for the price, just not exactly what I was looking for. So first off these gloves fit a size small (I usually wear a medium in US sized gloves, needed a large for these) They are comfortable after a bit of breaking in; when I first put them on the inside seam of the finger tips dug under my fingernails and just irritated me the whole time. They could use a wrist adjuster; the large cuff closure is secure but I feel they need that micro adjustment to keep them right where you need them during your ride. The knuckle protection is nice, but I wish it had a bit more motion atop your hand so it doesn't feel as constrictive. They breath more than I'd anticipated but not enough to be a problem. Overall they're great gloves for commuting and touring, not as technical as I'd hoped but oh well I knew what I was getting into. My biggest gripe with these gloves is that the little finger and the thumb are just a hair too long on my fingers (My fault not the gloves obviously) but there's just a bit of loose material at the tips. Also the stitching was a bit frayed when I got them. not a biggy but tells me where the end of the stitches are. March 4, 2015
Great glove Fit perfect. When wearing with my leather jacket, my arm feels indestructible. Bought the short style glove first, didn't fit with my leather jacket sleeve. Revzilla exchanged them for this gauntlet style quickly and with no problem. January 26, 2015

Robbie P: Decent protection for a decent price. And they look awesome! Thanks Rev! Apr 3, 2015

Karen P: These are a gift, that person shopped the sight Feb 1, 2015
Weston S: Same thing Dec 5, 2014

michael b: Decent price, good looks without being too racy. Sep 16, 2014

Matt W: Love Alpinestars as a brand and their quality. Was looking for a new street/season glove. Looked at the SP-2 and SP-8; didn't like the new red SP-2 design, so went with the SP-8. Feb 22, 2014
Raul A: I dig the colors I needed a more comfortable pair of gloves for the next season also Feb 11, 2014
Cody B: I choose these as a good compromise between protection and price. I'm a musician so I have to protect my hands, and these borderline track gloves should do the job for most street riding. Nov 11, 2013
G R: I needed gloves and these were the most protective looking and best rated. The stitching is coming apart on several fingers of my throttle hand after 100 or so miles riding. Could be a fluke. Great gloves otherwise. Oct 1, 2013
Brennan B asked: Do these gloves fit under a jacket? If not, do you feel they are tight enough and will not fall off if overtop of a jacket? Mar 31, 2015

john r: These gloves will not fit under most riding jackets. These gloves feel secure and won't fall off over the top of your sleeves. Gauntlet style gloves are made to be worn with the gloves over the cuff of your jacket. Great gloves for the price, I highly recommend them. Apr 1, 2015

Sridhar T: Brennan, the gloves fit tight like you dipped your hand in paint. They don't go under the jacket , too wide mouth but very snug and the fingers move flexible.

Michael T: You should be able to fit these under the sleeves of your jacket without much of an issue, I have a medium build with a relatively tight jacket and it works for me. The Velcro straps are strong and make these gloves snug but comfortable around the wrists should you decide to leave them over the jacket. Apr 9, 2015

Aleksei P asked: How are these in the heat (85+ degrees)? Feb 2, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Alfred R: Hello, Aleksei-

First to answer your question: the SP8 gloves were just fine in high temperatures. I ride an ADV bike with hand guards that block the wind, and the SP8's are adequately ventilated for warm temperatures. I believe any full-coverage glove like these will understandably be a bit on the warm/hot side in 85+ degree temperatures, but (for me) that is a small trade-off for the protection offered by the gloves.

I used these gloves last summer 2014 riding thru Texas hill country in +/- 100 degree heat. At the end of the day, the SP8 gloves were soaked with perspiration from my hands, but they dried out by morning. After several back-to-back days of this, the gloves started to discolor my hands a blue-black color- due to the leather color pigment of the gloves. I did not have a major objection to this- given the daily hard use I was giving these gloves on our cross-country ride- but of course I was disappointed.

What I DID object to about these gloves is that less than eight months after purchasing them, the stitching around the fingers started to loosen and unravel- just from regular, daily use- NOT dropping the bike or anything like that. I contacted Alpinestars to see if they would replace the gloves, but they said no, considering it just "normal wear and tear". For the price point of these gloves, I think the stitching should have stood up better than it did. And given this price point, Aleksei, I think you could perhaps find a better choice of glove(s) at Revzilla that would be suitable for your warm weather riding, and hopefully hold up better than the SP8 did for me.

I hope I have answered your question. Hope to see you out there, and... ride safe!

Peter H: They flow a decent amount of air, especially if you ride with your fingers covering the levers. There are perforations along the side of the fingers.

I'll have to echo the previous answer's sentiment: I wouldn't buy these again. the suede covered padding area wore through from the waffle grips on my old DRZ. I have scorpion SG3s now and am much happier with them.

john r: Not bad at all for being a gauntlet as long as you're moving. But I can see them getting uncomfortable 95+ with any significant amount of humidity. Feb 2, 2015

Trevor C asked: how will these gloves hold up in a slide at 80-100 mph?
Anthony described these as being not really a great track day glove but more spirited riding. what is the criteria for sport riding to track riding, slide protection or impact resistance?

john r: This is merely speculation because I haven't slid with these gloves... yet. I consider these gloves like a summertime street gauntlet. They are not going to provide the protection of say the GP Techs but I still have a lot of confidence in their ability to protect my hands and wrists if I go down. Hope that helps. May 21, 2015
