Alpinestars introduces the new Jet Road Gore-Tex gloves for touring riders. They feature a leather and stretch nylon outer shell with a leather palm that incorporates synthetic suede reinforcement pads to keep your hands silky smooth in case they do come in contact with the pavement. Further crash protection is provided by carbon-fibre knuckles.
The gauntlet has a water-resistant zipper to make slipping the gloves on, and it also allows you to wear the glove either over or under your jacket sleeve. The glove is claimed to be waterproof, providing all-weather capability.
