I have the SPS gloves and have been wearing them for 4 years now. Some of the stitching has come undone and the palm leather is wore out, to be replaced with my SP2s and replace the SP2 with a fancier trackday gauntlet glove. I would recommend them but I know others have said the seams have busted on them during a fall.

alpinestars are awesome fit but i warrarty more Astats due to stitching then anything. I love Cortech, I have their adrenaline 2 gauntlets made of kangaroo, and for street I have their HDX 2 gloves that are made of Goat. Really good quality for the price.

Alpinestars glove quality has declined quite a bit in recent years, esp. in their under $100.00 range.

IMO the Icon Pursuit glove is a great glove and has held up very well.
I keep them and multiple other brands in stock under $100 if you'd like to come check them out.

Ive had a pair of SPX's for a year and a half....but I dont ride with them a lot. Still look brand new, and fitment and quality seems good to me. I usually wear my Knox Handroids on a daily basis....

Get something with gauntlets. In a crash, the sleeve of your jacket can be rammed up your arm and expose your forearm to the grinding effects of concrete.
Gauntlets will prevent the sleeve from moving and if it does they will give you some increased coverage.

That's why race gloves all have gauntlets but street crashes can be just as violent.

I rock the same gloves on street and track. A wreck is a wreck and I need my hands functional for, you know, pretty much everything

I love my Cortech Adrenaline II's and don't mind paying a little extra money for a lot of extra protection. Just my $0.02

Have owned Icons, Joe Rockets and A*. I think fit has been good in A* but best bang for the buck has been Icon. Joe Rockets started falling apart the quickest for me.

Sedici Lucca Leather! Took about 100 miles to break them in but after the short break in period so worth the money. Full perforated leather amazing for the summer down here.

Still haven't gotten around to purchasing gloves yet, but I'm leaning more towards Held or Dainese gloves. Leaning more toward the Held gloves though.

From what I hear, gauntlet style will provide more protection for the fall. I hear a lot about Cortech, so you might want to look into those as well.

I have Cortech Latigo Air boots, a Cortech perforated leather jacket and the Cortech Adrenaline II's. I can tell you for a fact that the gloves and boots held up perfectly in my wreck and I'd recommend the brand to anyone. I had to replace my gloves because the left one had to be cut off due to the fracture and I got another set of Adrenaline II's. The skafoid protection pads take a bit of getting used to, but are a great protective feature plus, the palm is kangaroo leather and you can never go wrong with that

I own a set of SPX and SP-2's and they are both very nice. Neither of them have fallen apart yet but I work in the industry now and notice a lot of the current A* stuff that's cheaper doesn't hold up well. My two sets that I have are older models before A* decided to "fall off" like everyone is saying. My A* leather perforated jacket however is solid but that was $$$.

Patrick is right about the Icon Pursuits...they are one of the most comfortable gloves you'll put on and also come in a perforated edition. They are below your price range just as the A* ones above.

However, if you can save a little more, the Cortech ones (I wear Adrenaline II which is their top of the line), even the Latigos are very good quality and bang for the buck. On top of that, you are getting a gauntlet glove versus a regular one. It's a great piece of mind to have. Dianese one ups even that...and I've never wore a Sedici glove but I've tried them on and the fitment is very nice.
