Nice Gloves, weird fitment Nice looking gloves with lots of protection. I have one complaint though. It seems as if the finger crotch between my middle finger and ring finger protrudes too far into my hand. It's as if the glove is trying to split my hand between these fingers. After wearing the gloves for a few rides the gloves seem to have stretched and are more comfortable but I can still feel some tightness there. I wasn't expecting this from these gloves and have never experienced this from any other gloves. April 6, 2015
great glove i love these gloves! they fit well, a bit snug, but well. they look great, very breathable. good summer glove. December 30, 2014
Clarino Material = Pilly, worn out mess I loved these gloves when I first got them. After about half the summer (or about 400 miles), the clarino (fake leather) material on the palm between the thumb and forefinger on the left glove had worn through. It had the appearance of felt that had gotten wet and pulled. The airflow was awesome (especially after the hole formed lol) given the mesh along the fingers, and the knuckle protection seemed more than adequate. Had the gloves been made of real leather they probably would have held up for a couple of seasons. I found myself in need of new gloves with a couple of months of riding left to do! December 24, 2014
Nice gloves and great quality Nice style. Took over a week to break Them in. They fit me fingers well but slightly narrow on the palm. Overa satisfied with the quality. The knickles don't interfere too much but it takes some getting used to if you ride with lighter mesh gloves. December 1, 2014
Great glove Compared to my JoeRocket gloves the alpinestars had a tighter/smaller fit. After you break them in they are perfect. The only complaint I have is that I have some discomfort in my wrist on long rides but over all great looking glove and feel. November 24, 2014
Good product but bad reliability I have been using it for half a year and find out this is pretty good product except only one problem. The finger protector thing comes off easily from the glove. It happened like 2~3 months later since I started using it and I put some crazy glue on in and happened again like 3 months later. I dont ride my motorcycle a lot but still this glove have that problem. Well, consider the price, I can stand with this problem with my crazy glue. Other than that problem, Im pretty much satisfied with this glove. November 19, 2014
Nice pair especially on sale Got these gloves in black/white about 3 months ago. These are my second pit of gloves after having the Astars Spartan gloves I bought for my msf class. These gloves look great and have great breath ability. The carbon knuckles, TPR and bad over the wrist bone feel like really good protection. My only complaints are the chlorino suede material in the palm pill a lot, leaving bits of black fiber all over my hands so I have to wipe them off all over my pants every time I take them off making my pants look dirty. I wish they were a bit more durable in that sense. They can also be a bit hard to get on and off because of the way a piece of TPR goes across the globe. Overall though I'm very pleased. Great glove for Florida riding. November 3, 2014
Verry pleased these gloves are awesome! I took a low speed tumble (unfortunately) and I don't even feel the need to replace them... they held up that well! October 29, 2014

Matthew H: Hard to say. Personally i'd go as small as i think i might fit but my fingers are skinnier than average so i tend to dislike loose fitting gloves.

That being said, these gloves deffinately loosened over time... with use. They should be bareable when you first put them on, though.

Good luck!

Matthew D: Get the large these run small. Also I don't reccomend them. I love alpinestars glove (gear in general) but this was the least favorite pair I own. Jun 26, 2014

A shopper asked: Are these gloves constructed fully from man-made materials (e.g. polyurethane (PU) leather, synthetic suede, Clarino (synthetic leather)) or do they comprise real leather as well? Between the product description and the video its a little confusing. - Vegan Rider May 26, 2014

Colin C: Funny handle ! I hope you have an electric motorcycle.

According to the tag it has 5% genuine leather.

Reguardless if it has leather or not, the price of there gloves do not represent the build quality! The stitching is strong but it's been sewn by a drunk. Some fingers are sewn narrow while others are to wide. After one summer of riding I highly doubt the materials used will last 1 second in a crash.

A shopper asked: What is the difference between the ASTAR Thunder Glove and the SMX-2 Air Carbon glove? Apr 25, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: To answer this question, I pulled a pair of the Thunder gloves and a pair of the SMX-2 gloves from our warehouse and did a side-by-side comparison. While the gloves look pretty similar, I did notice some subtle differences. The Thunder has additional rubber over top of the fingers and wider padding on the thumb. Also, the ring finger on the Thunder is entirely leather where the SMX-2 ring finger is a combination of leather and stretch fabric. The final difference I noted is that the velcro wrist closure on the Thunder is larger than the one on the SMX-2. May 1, 2013
