Alpine Bike wear

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' started by leviathan, Feb 22, 2007.

  1. Hey,

    Went to a store today to pick up a part for my bike and I bought some "Alpine Bike wear" DASH gloves marked down from 100 to 50 $.

    I am relatively happy with them but I would like to know if anybody has heard of this brand and/or glove.

    Because I dont want to find that I have bought some low-rate glove that will disintegrate in five seconds !

    Thanks !
  2. bump!

  3. Yep, they are a cheap Pakistani knockoff brand. Having said that, I've got a pair of their summer gloves and they've stood up to a bit of wear and tear (but no crash testing!) without any problems so far.
    I wouldn't go racing with them, though.
  4. Great.

    Would you keep them for 50$ ?
