New: 2013 Alpinestars GP Pro gloves

Alpinestars have updated their popular race-rep glove for 2013

Alpinestars have updated their GP Pro glove for 2013. They feature kangaroo leather on the palm for improved feel, plastic polymer wrist cuffs and their patented third and fourth finger-bridge. They're available in six colourways including these fancy designs that are actually the outlines of race circuits (or the product of a spider on acid). They cost £169.99.

Here's what Alpinestars have to say about them:

The class-leading sports riding glove developed after years of performance testing on MotoGP and WSBK circuits, the GP Pro offers superior protection and advanced performance together with an ergonomic, lightweight design. 

Innovative safety features
• Full grain, multi-panel leather construction with a kangaroo leather palm and synthetic suede palm reinforcements is flexible, gives total feel and is durable.
• Alpinestars’ exclusive Dynamic Friction Shield (DFS) protectors feature advanced airflow ventilation and a dual density polymer construction for superior performance against repeat impacts as well as abrasion resistance.
• Alpinestars’ patented third and fourth finger-bridge prevents leather from twisting on fingers, and helps prevent seam failure and finger separation.
• A race-proven, anatomically contoured polymer wrist cuff wraps around wrist to protect wrist bone from impact.
• Additional impact protection provided by 3D foam padding on the top of the hand.
• Advanced poly-fabric finger sliders for impact and abrasion resistance.
• Internal KEVLAR® hand and thumb lining, plus internal K-Tech KEVLAR® little finger lining for abrasion performance.
