I write this as a complement to my Alpinestars GP Pro Leather Jacket review,
As I purchased both of them to make a 2-Piece riding suit.
This pants are a recent purchase for me, so I haven't had the chance to try them as long as I'd like to, but I can tell you this; If you're a little picky about the gear you use, and you like the best that there is, in terms of product quality, materials, finish, comfort and design, then look nowhere else and go for this pants, pair them up with a nice jacket of your choice, and you got yourself a 2-piece riding suit that you'll enjoy for years to come.
Please note, that when I say design, I don't only mean that this pants will look good, I mean that they will also perform amazingly, giving you the flexibility and protection that you'd expect from proffessional level riding gear. The guys from AStas are experts at what they do, and they prove that in every single product they sell.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I haven't had a chance to really try it over extended periods of time, but for my first impressions I can tell you this.... OHHH BOY, THIS JACKET LOOKS GOOOOOD!!!
I had been all over CA, looking for a two piece riding suit... I'd seen every brand you could think of, and there was always something wrong... The quality, the looks, the materials, etc, etc. I knew that AStars is the best there is, but before purchasing I wanted to make sure I wasn't just going for the brand and not the product itself.. In the end, I ended up totally convinced, AStars reputation for being the best, is well-earned.
Believe me when I tell you, there's nothing like Astars out there when it comes to Jackets and Pants. The finish, the materials, everything is perfect.
I ended up purchasing this jacket, along with the Alpinestars Track Leather Pants, to create the perfect 2-piece Suit to match my beautiful blue 2011 Yamaha R6, and I love it!
Yes, I recommend this product.

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.

I don't know much about racing gloves. To be honest, it's the first time I've ever used gloves to ride my R6.
I've gotta say, I'm really satisfied with this gloves in every aspect, except that I expected them to feel tougher than they do.
I ride every day, so I love this gloves for everyday riding, but for serious out-to-the-road kind of riding, I would recommend sturdier gloves.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Just recently I had the oportunity to purchase this helmet, and I've gotta say that the first thing that crossed my mind when I got it out of the box was "Holy Sh$& this thing is light!!"
I'm not going to get too technical on the review, but I am going to tell you this.. If you're looking for a Top Quality racing helmet with excellent features, and you're willing to pay the price, this helmet is as good as it gets. And that is because yes, SHOEI nailed it... Again.
Yes, I recommend this product.
