The Heritage of Alpinestars
Alpinestars take their name from the Italian mountain flower Stella Alpina, known to grow in the mountains around Sante Mazzarolo’s home town of Asolo, in northern Italy. Stella Alpina, means, well, “Alpine Star” in English. They have carried their origins with them proudly as they have grown and developed into a unique company dedicated to really high quality motorcycle clothing.
They began by making hiking boots and ski boots, branched out into making motocross boots and road racing boots, and from there became one of the most well-regarded manufacturers of motorcycle clothing in Europe.
Never content to rest on their laurels, Alpinestars have taken engineering inspiration from every spot they tough, all of which has helped their motorcycle clothing range cater for every conceivable need. From Dale Earnhardt Jr’s striking Alpinestars gloves in NASCAR to Jenson Button’s Racing boots and gloves, these drivers help inform and shape Alpinestars’ motorcycle range with fresh and innovative insights.

Brill spring/summer/autumn gloves
I've owned a pair of these for a couple of years now, and they are great. Not warm enough for me once temperatures get below 10 degrees c, but then they're meant as a summer glove. Good feedback through the controls, but thick enough to feel like you've got some protection. After 2 years, the fabric part has started to fray a little, but nothing to worry about. Would definitely have another pair when these wear out. Only word of caution is that they came up small when I bought mine. I take a large normally, but needed XL.
