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.
Alpinestars is a technical safety gear manufacturer for motorcycle and auto racing (MotoGP, Motocross, Formula One and NASCAR), as well as extreme sports. The company takes its name from the English translation of the Italian word "stelle alpine" which, when translated into English, literally means "Alpine stars".
They have also developed a fashion clothing division for men's and women's sportswear lifestyle apparel, based upon Alpinestars' heritage in motorsports.
Founded in 1963 by Sante Mazzarolo in Asolo, Italy, the company started out making hiking and ski boots, but quickly focused on making boots primarily for motocross racing. In the 1990s, the company branched out into manufacturing all types of protective and technical gear ranging from gloves and jackets to full leather suits for motorcycling. They also sold Alpinestars branded mountain bikes until 1996. Today they have offices in Los Angeles and Tokyo while the original headquarters and main research & development labs remain in Northern Italy.
The company is today headed by Sante's son, Gabriele Mazzarolo. Alpinestars is now a global brand, developing technical racing products for MotoGP and World Superbike with leather suits, boots, gloves and protection worn by MotoGP World Champions Nicky Hayden and Casey Stoner. In auto racing, flame and heat retardant Nomex suits, footwear, gloves and underwear have been developed in Formula One and NASCAR with recent Champions Fernando Alonso and Jimmie Johnson.
Alpinestars has established a fashion division with design centers in California and Italy.
