A comparison of gloves AGV Sport Mayhem Short vs. Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon
I was wondering how these gloves compared in ventilation and feel. Is the palm thickness comparable regarding control feel? Do either seem like the palms would wear out quicker? Which would provide better hand cooling? I noticed the SMX-2 has breathable material on the hand but no vents while the Mayhem has less breathable material/mesh but a lot of venting. The SMX-2 also has minor breathable material in the palms while the Mayhem does not. What about size? I was able to try on an XL SMX-2 at a somewhat local shop recently and it was long in the fingers but felt good otherwise. Based on the sizing chart I should wear a Medium SMX-2 but with the XL try on I thought a Large might work. There is no chart for AGV gloves but I normally wear an 8 1/2 or Medium in Held street gloves. With the review stating they are true to size I'd guess I'd want a medium for the Mayhem but am unsure. Primary use for these gloves would be offroad trail riding and dualsport rides.
