Alpinestars Black Tech 1 Start Glove
To describe as "Lightweight" may be an understatement. A digital scale comparison with a pair of Alpinestars Tech 1 Start Gloves, yielded some impressive results. Comparing the weight to another brand glove of the same size and protection rating, the Alpinestars are THREE TIMES LIGHTER!
Alpinestars attention to detail goes beyond the extreme lightweight materials. These gloves are built with the fingers "pre-curved", which allows a more comfortable grip on the steering wheel and shift lever. To help maintain that grip, the palm leather is installed in an "against the grain" orientation and small leather patches are strategically placed on the fingertips.
Drivers who utilize Tear Offs will appreciate these close fitting gloves.
Alpinestars also incorporated feedback from some of racings biggest names by eliminating the traditional Velcro closure. Built-in elasticized material in the wrist section provides a secure fit.
