Funny thing is, OPs mechanix gloves aren't cheap. There are nice A* gloves for nearly half that price.We still see WWAAYYY too many guys and gals using mechanic or even batters gloves when riding. One good spill ( even at low speeds ) and you're in for weeks of healing and recovery. Gotta echo what all have said, save your coin and buy true riding gloves.
What makes you think it's a problem endemic to Alpinestars products? There's a logical fallacy in there if you're willing to examine it.Here's a pic of some guys Alpinestar SMX Air Carbon gloves. I am heavily reconsidering my A* gloves after finding this... I bought a similar pair for the summer. thicker leather is probably the best way to go regardless of temperature.
I didn't mean to come across as saying there was a problem with A*s. They make tons of great products and I love them. All I was saying is that the guy in the pic had a certain model A* and I have a similar pair of the same brand. After seeing how they perform I am rethinking my purchase of a short cuff soft/thin leather palm glove.What makes you think it's a problem endemic to Alpinestars products?
