Alpinestars Predator Full Finger Gloves
High performance, a convenient slip-on design and wonderful comfort come together in the Predator Gloves from Alpinestars. Leave the competition in the dust thanks to improved control over your bike and levers. Alpinestars have achieved the seemingly impossible and improved one of their most reliable pieces of MTB apparel. The Predator Gloves now come with a better ergonomic design than ever before, meaning less material for a lighter experience with reduced bunching. The gloves also feature a very convenient slip-on construction and a spandex wrist pull tab, which allows you to get in and out of them with ease, while a hook and loop closure on the wrist helps you find the perfect fit at all times. The wonderful design of these gloves leads to a number of other advantages, too. In the upper part, spandex allows better flexibility, and further down, the pre-curved fingers helps to reduce fatigue. However, the best stuff is perhaps found in the palm: it's made from a single layer of synthetic suede which is highly breathable to keep you ventilated. Innovative stretch materials here also provide excellent feeling over the bike's controls, while reinforcements help to defend against tough abrasions when you take on the most terrifying downhill runs. Even the thumbs have been considered, constructed to offer durability and flexibility, for the ultimate in MTB hand protection in the form of the Predator Gloves. Ergonomic chassis and reduced material design result in a supremely lightweight, comfortable glove. Lightweight, single-piece spandex upper construction gives excellent flexibility. Perforated, single layer synthetic suede palm is breathable and offers excellent sensitivity on bike's controls. Reinforced thumb construction increases durability and the gusset for improved flexibility. Innovative stretch insert in palm and thumb area for improved hand movement and lever control. Synthetic suede reinforcements on palm for added abrasion resistance. Convenient slip-on design for secure, customized fit. Silicone grip patterning on fingers for improved riding control. Hoop and loop closure and spandex wrist pull tab with silicone for fit and easy entry.

Founded in 1963 in Asolo in Italy by Sante Mazzarolo, Alpinestars began life as a hiking and ski boot manufacturer, which diversified to include motocross and road racing ranges shortly after. Incidentally, the name derives from the English translation of the flower Stella Alpina, which was local to the Italian company's headquarters. The company have sponsored numerous motorcycle word champions, such as DeCoster, Roberts, Doohan and Marquez. It wasn't until the 90's when the company began to produce non footwear products for riders, such as gloves and jackets. Their history in cycling began in the early 90s with a range of mountain bikes, which featured a distinctive raised chainstay, which followed on through the seat tube and attached onto the downtube for strength and stiffness. This range ceased in 1996, but to this day Alpinestars produce ranges of clothing and protective gear for mountain bikers. In 2004, Alpinstars concentrated on the gravity based disciplines of off-roading, and the following year had success with Greg Minnaar winning the UCI DH World Cup.
Currently employing nearly 500 staff worldwide, their products have been tried and tested at the highest level. For more information on their cycling products please visit http://www.alpinestars.com/cycling, or to find out more about Alpinestars, please visit their article on Wikipedia.
