Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Gloves With carbon protection and motocross inspired styling and comfort, the Alpinestars SMX2 Air Carbon glove makes an excellent choice for summer motorcycle riding Utilizing an advanced leather and mesh hybrid construction, Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Glove offers the street rider superior comfort and performance while the carbon fiber knuckle and Clarino reinforced palm ensures high levels of protection. Lightweight hybrid leather and mesh upper construction offers the ideal combination of durability, abrasion resistance and comfort. Synthetic leather palm construction with Clarino reinforcements provides extra durability and protection where it is needed most. Reinforced landing zone with built in foam padding offers additional impact protection Sizing Note If you are in between sizes order a size larger, in RevZilla's experience these gloves fit slightly small.

WARNING: BUY ONE SIZE UP.
I orig. bought a large and the gloves were tight.
Exchanged for an XL.
These gloves are amazing, I can't believe that I didn't buy this beforehand.
they are a bit pricey, however They're worth EVERY penny. If I had to buy a different pair of gloves, I'd buy these again in a heartbeat.
These gloves did NOT need a break-in period. I tried it on, and it fit perfectly and was extremely comfortable.
I was able to feel the throttle rolling perfectly, no restriction while grabbing the levers, and most importantly, the carbon fiber knuckle does NOT hinder the movement of your fingers.
Riding in these gloves in ~60 degree weather going ~50mph is great. These gloves do let in air, but not so much that your fingers go numb.
I certainly feel protected wearing these gloves and and confident that they will last in the case of a low and i end up sliding. The palms have a nice amount of padding, which does help with vibration dampening.
I have not lost any sense of dexterity while on the motorcycle wearing these gloves either.
Rides: 2006 Kawasaki EX500 Ninja 500R
Yes, I recommend this product.
