Spyke Alien
Miles covered/time:
2000/one year

What’s good?
These are the top of the range Spyke race gloves so the spec panel is pretty impressive.

The one-piece carbon moulded knuckle protection is reassuring and not uncomfortable, the inner liner is supple and the non-gimmicky Velcro closure is ideal.

What’s not? The glove size is right, but the fingers and thumb feel a little too short in length.

I can always feel the seam at the end of the fingers, and the seam on the thumb pulls lack against the skin when clenching onto the handlebars. This might just be because I’ve got quite long fingers though.

Rating: 3/5
