New for 2017 from Alpinestars is the Highlands Glove, a short-cuffed performance riding glove that incorporates premium leather and a 3D mesh top surface for optimized levels of comfort and breathability. The Highlands gains protection thanks to a hard knuckle protector and strategically positioned aramidic fiber reinforcements. As ready as it looks to tackle the toughest off-road terrains and biggest sand dunes, it wouldn't be out of place cruising around the urban jungle. Constructed from durable goat leather and 3D mesh, the Highlands glove aims to provide optimized airflow as well as durability.

Other features of the Alpinestars Highlands glove include:

  • Innovative microfiber and PU grip insert strategically position on palm and thumb for excellent levels of grip control and durability.
  • Premium, full-grain leather palm construction is durable and offers excellent abrasion resistance.
  • Alpinestars' exclusive ergonomic stretch insert between palm and thumb offers improved range of hand movement and greater sensitivity while operating the bike controls.
  • Ergonomically engineered ARSHIELD reinforcements, consisting of high abrasion-resistant aramidic fiber and polyamide, strategically positioned outer hand with padding on landing zones.
  • Pre-curved finger construction reduces rider fatigue while offering excellent comfort and fit.
  • Excellent impact performance offered by an advanced over-molded polymer knuckle protector.
  • Palm and thumb padded with energy absorbing EVA foam for additional protection.
  • TPR fingers and backhand sliders for superior impact and abrasion resistance.
  • Wrist flap with velcro on cuff.
  • Touchscreen compatible index fingertip and thumb allow the use of smartphone and GPS systems.
