Gloves preference? Track / Race

I'm currently running alpinestars sp-2 gloves and they are killing my knuckles. Alot of times I come in the pits and its from the pain of my knuckles, I broke them when I was younger and they're pretty sensitive...

I've tried the Arlen Ness gloves but they ran small so I had to get rid of them.

Does anyone have a recommendation? Racing in these is going to suck if I can't find a replacement.

I wear a large for reference.

Man, I thought I was the only one. My sp2's tore up my knuckles, the bigger size didn't fit at all either. The only good part was decent protection for $100, I liked that...

In for recommendations too.

I wear the Komodo Pro Racer gloves. They are pretty comfortable and I have no complaints. I also wear a large. I have a set of SP2 gloves that I had to change to an XL because the L hurt my knuckles too, but the finger tips were too long once I switched to the XL. I guess this is a common problem.

i seen a local guy crash at barber, kinda a slow get off, and his knox didn't hold up very good at all, in fact, he is missing some of his finger still, since october.

I used to be a huge fan (mainly because they looked cool)
