Alpinestars SP-2 V2
The Alpinestars SP2 V2 Motorcycle Gloves are the updated successors to the already popular Alpinestars SP2 Gloves. These leather gloves feature improved stretch zones for optimum comfort and a new hard knuckle protector. Though they are made of leather, these road gloves also offer high levels of ventilation thanks to their perforated outer shell. The Alpinstars gloves will also be facing competition from the Dainese Carbon 3 and the Revit League gloves.
The Alpinestars SP2V2 Gloves have a full premium leather main construction with leather palm for comfort and control and perforated leather on top hand and wrist for excellent levels of breathability. This is a good sign since full grain leather is the most durable type of natural leather.
The palm has been further strengthened against abrasion resistance thanks to thumb and palm reinforcements constructed from advanced elastomer for a superior performance. The glove also includes synthetic suede side reinforcements on landing zones on the sides of the hands. Overall, this mixture of materials ensure the gloves offer superior grip and movement.
For safety, the CE Level 1 Alpinestars SP 2 V2 Glove is racing styled mid size cuff length for additional coverage and safety. The gloves include race proven TPU injected knuckle protection system to absorb and dissipate impacts.
For the fingers, there are 3mm foam inserts that help provide some impact and abrasion resistance. A similar section of padding can also be found in the wrist. Lastly, between the little and ring fingers is Alpinestars’ special finger bridge. This additional piece of leather helps keep the little finger from injury from rolling in an impact.
To ensure that these gloves are comfortable to wear, they include accordion leather stretch inserts on fingers and thumb to increase fit and directional movement and comfort. There are also stretch inserts on the fingers, just above the knuckles. To further adjust the glove, the Alpinestars SP-2 V2 Gloves include Alpinestars' double wrist closure system, with hook and loop closures to ensure close fit and security closure.
To keep your hands cool, the gloves include perforations in the leather and a vented knuckle gusset for improved airflow.
Lastly, the gloves are also touch screen friendly thanks to a touchscreen compatible fingertip in the index finger.
The Alpinestars SP-2V2 Gloves offer a racing styled glove for an everyday street rider. With its extra reinforcement, hard TPU knuckle, and perforated leather construction, this glove offers a high level of protection and ventilation.
