Well, I finally had a chance to crash test my Alpinestar GP+ gloves. I lowsided at the track (Pocono) somewhere in the neighborhood of 70mph. Most of the crash was absorbed by my leather suit but the gloves were in contact with the asphalt for a good 200 feet. Now this wasn't a serious test for the gloves but they fared quite well. They look as if I drug them across the parking lot a few times. No holes and no abrasions to my hands. My pinky finger did feel as though someone shoved a pin into the tip of it but that pain was over quickly. The gloves still have quite a bit of life left in them. I highly recommend these. While there are better gloves on the market today, I feel the price vs. protection ratio is well above average. I paid $150 for the pair and feel it was a wise investment.
