The same motorcycle gloves worn by Alpinestars’ sponsored MotoGP riders is now available with the new Alpinestars Supertech Glove. Replacing the previous top-of-the-line Alpinestars GP Tech, the Alpinestars Supetech is constructed mostly from full-grain kangaroo leather for supple feel and strength, augmented by cow leather in certain areas.
Featuring a pre-articulated finger construction with raised stitching seams that ensure there are no seams anywhere between your fingers and the handlebars or controls for comfort and feel, the Alpinestars Supertech glove also sports a unique stretch fabric insert between the thumb and palm developed in MotoGP that riders discovered made a huge improvement in flexibility.
Also new on the Alpinestars Supertech gloves are ARSHIELD reinforcement panels (made from aramidic fiber and polyamide fabric) in key areas on the palm and outer portion of the hand that offer maximum abrasion and impact resistance without feeling bulky. In addition, the new Supertech glove is lined with CarbonX fabric – developed in Alpinestars’s auto racing department – that provides both abrasion and heat resistance.
The external Dynamic Friction Shield (DFS) knuckle protection system and TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) wrist cuff now have a dual-desity mold construction backed by ployurethane foam to ward off repeated impacts, and injected TPU finger sliders help protect those areas from impacts and abrasion.
Perforations on key areas of the glove provide ventilation without sacrificing abrasion resistance.
The Alpinestars Supertech glove is CE certified to EN 13594:2015 Level 2 and is available in sizes S to 3XL, in black, black/white, red/white/black, and white/black/red/yellow color combinations.
