Alpinestars SPS gloves
Alpinestars SPS Gloves, £69.95
Miles covered/time: 4000/three years
What’s good: They’re comfy beyond belief, like wearing your finest slippers. There’s a real feel of quality plus these Alpinestars gloves look really cool when rocking the ‘euro style’ of jacket and jeans on a nice summer’s evening. They’re great to have if it’s just a nip to the shops as they are easy to put on with only one closure (a velcro tab). Even after three years the colour is pretty as it was when new, no rubbing off or fading.
What’s not: Protection is a little thin on the ground with only carbon on the knuckles, and the palm isn’t made of the thickest leather known to man either.
