Tested: Alpinestars GP Pro R3 gloves


These racy gloves are made out of a mixture of kangaroo, treated cow hide and goat hide, and feature a whole host of state-of-the- art protection taken derived from experiences learnt in MotoGP and WSBK – Kevlar stitching, super touch armour on the knuckles and dual- compound hard sliders. They also feature Alpinestars clever double cuff fastener which has DFS on the cuff and the company’s patented finger bridge, which prevents finger roll and separation in the event of a spill.

On the bike the fit is just right, being long enough in the finger without having any excess material at the fingertips and they’re reassuringly protective while being supple enough to offer good feel at the bars and levers. And that double cuff makes getting the glove on and off easy, while also ensuring that they’re not going to go anywhere once they’re on.
