Bought these roughly 3 weeks ago and so far they have held up great. Thought they might be uncomfortable because of the carbon fiber knuckle armor but this was not the case. Even after a 10 hour ride the armor caused no irritation or fatigue.

Long time fan of alpinestars. This is the worst product of theirs that i've bought. I've had these gloves for only 2 months. I take care of my gear and i dont beat them up.
-Yellow lettering has partially fallen off already. I bought these for the yellow accents and some of it is now gone.
-Mesh holes are a bit too big and the material inside the gloves is starting to come out through them. It's minor, but annoying
-Big problem is that the wrist strap to secure the gloves is made of rubber and has torn almost completely off. Once it tears off, i'll have no way to tighten and secure the gloves around my wrists.
-They looked great before the yellow accents started to off.
-The carbon fiber knuckles look and feel great, i really like them.
-The palm side of the gloves is made from nice leather. The quality of it makes me feel confident that they will protect my hands during a slide
The only recommendation that i would give about these gloves is that you stay away from them, unless if you're ok with loose gloves that you cant velcro down
These are my first pair of bike gloves, so not much for me to compare them to. I've got my mom's short fingers, so they're naturally a little long in the digits but all in all my Large fits great as a 5'11" dude. They look great (black and white) and give a good feel on the bike. Thankfully haven't been crash tested yet.
Beautiful, can't really say for durability considering that I have only had these for about two months but so far so good, but what really impresses me about these gloves is that while they feel like they really protect your hands well, they still are very comfortable when considering everything. One thing you may want to know if you're like me and like gloves to be snug; these gloves where a little tight the first few times I wore them and now they are "worn in" perfect for my taste.
Wore them for the first time today and they feel great.
