TECH 1-KX GLOVE KEY TECHNICAL FEATURES: 2 layer stretch poly-cotton construction provides the optimum combination of weight, feel and comfort. Grip treatment on palm designed with an innovative slash dot pattern for improved feel and control. Alpinestars exclusive internal 3D injected pattern actively improves comfort and grip while driving. Strategically positioned, textured synthetic leather patches and silicone printing greatly enhance feel, grip and vibration dissipation. External seams provide superior comfort and prevent any excessive pressure points forming on the hands while driving. Pre-curved finger and palm design aids fit while reducing material bunching when gripping the controls. Revised thumb construction for superior comfort. Synthetic leather forchettes help prevent material on the fingers twisting while driving. Alpinestars exclusive cuff opening design with distinctive black Velcro closure flap ensures easy and secure fitment.
To determine hand measurement, use a cloth tape measure or string. Make a loose fist and measure the hand across the palm and around the back of the hand just behind the large knuckles. Do not include the thumb or fingers.
Some gloves are available in sizes smaller than 8, especially Karting gloves in childrens sizes. Please contact us if you need one of these smaller sizes but are not sure which one to order.
