Alpinestars SP-X Gloves Closeout
Falls short of expectations
I bought several pairs of Alpinetars gloves. i thought i was getting some of the best gloves on the market. i have been disappointed. the GREAT staff here upgraded me to this glove. it has lasted longer than the others, but i still think for the cost, this should be a much better glove. i may be able to make it through one season with this glove. i do not do any track riding, pure streets. i probably will look at other brands when this one gives up on me.

Awesome gloves, love the color itself and all the features included
I loved the delivery they offer. it was pretty quick and easy, the actual glove themselves feel so comfortable and the style looks amazing. have gotten a lot of compliments on the gloves already. other than that they are great gloves for maximum protection and a sporty look. definitively worth the money. looking forward for future purchases

By far my favorite gloves
These gloves are amAzing. By far my favorite gloves. Flow a great amount of air which is very nice being as I live in south Florida. They are very durable and comfortable. I ordered a large, and they were a bit snug at first, but after about a week or 2, they fit perfectly. Vry comfortable and offer great protection for a shorter glove. They look absolutely amazing and match my 675R perfectly in red and white. I have had them a few months now and they still look and feel brand new. Definitely head turners, everywhere I go people tell me how nice they are, and I have got 4 of my friends and maybe some others into these gloves. Great all year round gloves for down here in florida. I honestly can't say a single bad thing about these gloves. I absolutely love them, and I'm getting myself another pair in all black for when I wear my all black helmet and gear. Not because I need a new pair, just because I want them! I definitely recommend these to anyone who is looking for a shorter glove to wear with a short sleeve shirt that not only look and feel great, but also offer great protection. These are definitely my favorite gloves of all time!

Great Gloves but may lack in quality control.
This gloves performs and offers the best protection for its size. Mine has also torn after the stiching has come off as stated by 2 other reviews.
Overall i would recommend this glove, but you may get the bad one in the patch with the poor quality control.

They Fall Apart!
Like the poster below, I had these gloves for about a week before they started to fall apart. I had maybe ridden ten miles before the wrist strap started separating from the rest of the glove. The style is nice, they have a good fit, and they are reasonably well-ventilated, but they seem to be of quite poor quality.

Not Happy with this product
i purchased these gloves about a week ago, they are nice and comfortable and seem like they would do a good job if u ever went down but i was really dissapointed in the quality to be more exact the stiching is already falling apart, i am a new rider so i have not reached 200 miles in the gloves and am already having to have them taylored. i thought alpinestars were of quality.. i suggest you look into a dianese or a held glove if your looking for somthing to hold up for the long haul. i regret i picked them up.

The perfect glove!
These gloves fit great they're durable, comfortable, warm when it's cold, and cool when it's hot! I just purchased a second pair even though my other pair are still in pretty good shape. The half detached knuckle pad moves well with your hand, the leather is and stitching is top notch, and they give you a confident feel when you're riding which is never bad!!!

My only issue is a slight one with the sizing. The general fit is fine but the thumb is a little short. I have a Medium hand with Large (length) fingers, and I ordered the large gloves. Once I fiddled with them a bit and they stretched I have stopped noticing the issue.
Aside from that, they are brilliant. Solid, protective, flow a ton of air, grip well, reasonable feel through the palms (compared to Dainese full metal pro gloves.. So probably very good feel compared to a normal glove).
