I have the Alpinstars sp1,they are the older ones but they have the best throttle feel for me.
.I tryed the newer ones but they didn,t feel the same because they were thicker in the fingers.
I think you have to try gloves on to find the best fit.

alpinestars gp-pro. best gloves i have ever had. but you need to get what you can afford, and what fits their use the best. out of those, i would proly get the shift leather with the carbon knuckles. i personally dont care for joe rocket gear. just my opinion. good luck on your purchase. and remember to wear them, along with the rest of your gear....

You do get what you pay for and imho anything less than the $125 range is not worth it. You'll notice most folks on here and other bike forums agree to the alpine gp-pro

09' Ice Blended Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino
10' Venti Mocha Latte spilled some of it, was too hot
11' Peppermint Mocha W/Extra Shot of Espresso
12' Eggnog Venti Latte
13' Bagel
14' Standard Drip (since a Venti latte went up 20 cents)

I have only owned Alpinestars from the sp1 which is a gauntlet and the sp-s short glove. I haven't had any issues with them. From your selections I would go with the shift gloves. Try it out and see what fits you. Good luck!

You can never go wrong with astar, BUT whatever you get just make sure they have leather palms and fingers.......to me that's the main thing i look for in a pair of gloves...short or long, they need to be full leather. "when" you fall...the first thing to go out and hit the ground will be your hands.

Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.
