Alpinestars GP Tech gloves

Bought a pair of these gloves recently. Today is the first day I wore them, but I must say I'm not exactly happy with them. When riding the knuckle protector in the right hand glove puts extreme pressure on my middle finger knuckle. They are a size L; a bit on the larger side, but better than being too small. The left glove is fine and gives me zero problems.

I submitted a description of the problem on the feedback form on Alpinestars website. Hopefully they'll respond.

Re: Alpinestars GP Tech gloves

had similar problems when I first got my MotoGP nitrouses. The carbon knuckles put a lot of pressure on my knuckles. They were overall pretty tight and hard to even get on cause of the wrist band but a friend forced them on his hand and the band loosened right up. Once they broke in no more fitments issues. give them a little time.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Alpinestars GP Tech gloves

I have the same problem with my GP tech gloves...They are broken in for sure and I rode yesterday at a track day and my middle finger knuckle is still hurting.
ND did Alpinestars ever write back?

Re: Alpinestars GP Tech gloves

Mine didn't get better, I kept hoping they would. It's a design flaw, IMO. Great glove outside of that though.

I bought some Under Armor gloves to wear under them and it seems to help but I will be getting some new gloves. This is a problem that I'm not willing to "get use to".

Re: Alpinestars GP Tech gloves

I had a similar problem, so went to the local sporting good shop and got some mink oil ( to soften up your baseball glove ) soaked the knuckle in the mink oil and then watched a game on TV and worked my hands for the next couple of hours and before doing the stretching taped up the knuckle that was being effected. Worked well and now absolutely love my moto GP's.
