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.
My only compliant, which hurt the glove's Durability rating, is the fraying the gloves are prone to at the finder tips. The tips are fabric, which sticks a little to the velcro fasteners on jackets and even the gloves themselves. This pulls threads loose, so soon your finger tips need a trim, and this can't be good for the gloves longevity.
If they put a small plastic tip on the gloves for when you touch velcro, I'd give these things a 5 rating.
