Alpine Star SPS gloves

I was wondering if any of you had any opinions about or personal experience with a set of the Alpinestar SPS gloves http://www.alpinestars.com/SPS_Glove.../p/355903.html and any pros or cons about buying used but in good condition gear. I was leaning towards getting some gauntlet style gloves as they offer more protection. Is it really worth getting the gauntlet style?

i think they are great, ive had them for about 6 months. i dont think used gloves are a bad idea as long as they have never been in a crash. they look nice too !

if you wear a jacket with your gloves, these kinda suck. i thought i would like them for motard riding but they suck when paired up with a long sleeve! just my thought. I say get a glove that covers the the wrist bone, it sure would hurt to grind that down in the event of a get off.

They're fair.
The cuff comes unglued from the velcro after awhile, and the fit isn't that great.
It's a disappointment too, because most of Alpinestars stuff is pretty good, however they missed the mark on these.

You may want to check out the Alpinestar Alloys instead.
If you want to try some on we keep them in stock, they're a good street glove.
