a* type of glove

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' at netrider.net.au started by Takamii, Jul 20, 2010.

  1. Hi guys - hopefully within the next 3-4 weeks will have some gloves available

    Not 100 % guaranteed yet so don't get upset if it doesn't happen

    As some of you know I try to give a great product at a great price

    not because I am greedy and want a yacht - but rather to pay my way through University - the motorcycling communities support is much appreciated by me.

    The style may look familiar to you, people have told me they remind them of the A* style - shrugs I can neither confirm nor deny that

    I will say they do not have the A* branding on them

    anyway these wont break the bank I assure you

    colours will be black/white

    and most likely full black

    or a red/white
    or a blue/white

    It would be helpful to me if people would give some feedback in respect to most popular colour combos



    send me a pm if you may be interested and I will give you a ball park figure



    If all goes well will do the same as the jeans and offer a pair up for a prize n a competition

    Thanks people

  2. I like Black/White and full black coloured gloves. You can put me down for a pair as I need a set of gauntlets (apparently I can't use my shorties at the track)

  3. what are the insides like? warm? stitching good?

    i am going to buy a new pair of gloves at the end of the year or early next year, so put me down as one for the future.

    As people here know I would never stock something that's rubbish or that I would not wear

  12. Have you done any more leather jackets apart from that prototype that I think you sold to a CR member?
     
     Top
  13. not yet - they are still on the cards

    I have the jeans side all sorted now
    The helmets are my priority at the momment
    the gloves are not a complex issue

    then as soon as the helmets are sorted will get back into the jacket design

    he had a big stack ( hid a guard rail and went unconscious) and was wearing my gear -- came out with no problems and was very happy - still has the battle scared jacket - he will continue to use it

  17. Yep, they are an almost exact copy. The "GP Pro" is the Alpinestars model name - the top of the range racing glove. The model name is still even in one of the pics - the triangular panel next to the knuckle protection.

    Not saying they aren't just as good, may even come out of the same factory... but they are definitely a rip-off.

  18. Meh, if they look the same, do the same thing and more than likely made by the same people but are a lot cheaper.

    I know which ones I'd choose!
