alpinestars gloves - August 17, 2006, 12:11 AM

Okay so I bought a pair of smx 2 air carbon gloves like 2 months ago. Well after about 2 rides with the gloves the grip strips on the finger tips began to peel off. So I sent it back and they decided to replace them, well after a MONTH and many phone calls and emails I finally got the replacement pair. Well a week after the replacement pair arrived, i've already lost the grip strips on the same fingers again. This time it's worse, more strips are falling off. Anyone else ever had this poor experience with alpinestars gloves? I mean i was always under the impression they had good quality products?

Strange... my A* gloves have held up really well compared to the Joe Rocket gloves I used to have. The velcro used to tear off my JRs.

I had their GP Plus gloves for 2 years and moved up to the GP Tech gloves. Never had a problem with either one.

I have the same gloves and have had the same problems. The glued-on grips were definitely a flaw....

after 3 emails back and forth and having gone through 2 pairs (original purchase + replacement) Alpinestars told me to keep the replacement and sent me a third pair. I love thier customer service, though the product is a little lacking. But customer service was definitely above and beyond.

next time check out the GP series - i have the GP Pro's and i scored them *new* off eBay for cheap ($120 shipped). Well worth the money IMO. I've heard good things from the SP1's, but not from the SMX's.

I have the Octane S Moto's! Great for everyday riding! No real problems yet, some of the stiching has come loose, but other than that very solid!
