Featuring MotoGP and WSBK derived innovations, the Alpinestars GP Tech 2016 Glove includes class-leading features such as flexible compound knuckle protectors, an ergonomic cuff design and strategic reinforcement in the palm area - making it one of the most technologically advanced racing gloves on the market. The construction of this glove is an evolutionary step for MotoGP with strong and supple Kangaroo main leather chassis and palm. The palm and outer hand is reinforced with highly breathable Pittards digital leather, which promotes greater grip and water run-off in adverse conditions and this has integrated leather accordion stretch inserts on fingers and thumb, including innovative lateral insert to give greater range of movement across back hand area. This also offers added protection throughout with Alpinestars' advanced knuckle protection system with flexible, dual-compound TPU protector with air intakes and exhaust port for cooling performance, the protector is window mounted on poly-foam comfort padding for streamlining, repeated abrasion performance and impact dissipation. Alpinestars' patented finger-bridge keeps leather from twisting around fingers and helps prevent burst seams and finger separation plus the ergonomically designed TPU wrist cuff, which wraps around wrist and raises the entire profile of the hand to protect wrist and carpal bones from impact in a crash while affording excellent flexibility. Palm, thumb and finger TPU sliders are mounted on poly-foam and strategically positioned for superior impact and abrasion resistance. Integrated DuPont Kevlar fibre with internal Kevlar to the back of the hand and thumb lining and internal K-Tech Kevlar lining, for superior impact abrasion resistance. This superior glove also features single layer leather palm design for grip sensitivity and minimal material structure and reduced seams, perforated leather top panel, cuff and ventilated finger sidewalls offer superb overall breathability, exhaust port on back of hand features TPU ridge for additional abrasion resistance, pre-curved finger construction reduces fatigue, plus external finger to palm seams for a close fit and superior feel, gauntlet-style cuff closure is reinforced with comfort poly-foam with an extended cuff tab to aid fitment.
