These SMX-1 Drystar® motorcycle gloves with short cuff have a sporty appearance and are perfect for that period between Summer and Winter. The Alpinestars Drystar® membrane keeps your hands dry.
If dry hands were the one and only reason, then the SMX-1 Drystar® motorcycle gloves would be somewhat overkill. The price suggests that – aside from the waterproof and breathing properties – that what really makes a difference is the use of high-value materials and beautiful detailing. The sporty appearance we mentioned earlier ensures a proper steering feel and plenty of stretch. The high level of protection and the comfort that emerge from that turn this motorcycle glove into some next-level sh*t.
The palm of the hand was given a combination of goatskin and textile, just like the back of the hand. Durable and wear-resistant, that is. The TPR sliders on the fingers and the ergonomic knuckle protector (with carbon look) seem to emphasise the impact protection. The padded area on the palm and the flexible, elastic stretch around the thumb do the same in the field of comfort and feel. You can also add the seamless, adjustable wrist closure to that mix, and the touchscreen compatible thumb and index finger.
A finger bridge prevents your little finger and ring finger from each pointing in an opposite direction, while accentuating once again the sporty angle. That this is not 100% racing gear, is also a certainty. The cuff is too short for that.
Quick in and out, dry hands, easy to store and wonderfully comfortable, that is the very brief summary of these motorcycle gloves. Not everyone is a fan of motorcycle gloves that are cut short but those who are, find a pleasant companion in the SMX-1 Drystar® motorcycle gloves.
