Reach for the clouds.
The Alpinestars Stratus Gloves are the company's offering if you're seeking some well-made and stylish full-finger gloves this fall and winter, but don't want or need the extra padding and features that usually accompany more gravity-ready gloves.
By eschewing palm padding and heavy structural reinforcements, the gloves are especially friendly to climbers (hence the name) but don't give up the durability and quality for which Alpinestars is known. The gloves' shell material is waterproof and windproof to make for all-weather usefulness, and reflective details boost your visibility if you're out riding at night. The moisture-wicking thermal lining keeps your hands dry and comfortable, while a hook-and-loop cuff closure makes it easy to get the gloves on and off. Silicone "treads" on the palm and fingertips enhance grip, and the close-fitting synthetic leather palm promises excellent bar feel and control.
The Alpinestars Stratus Gloves come in five sizes, from Small to XX-Large, and in four color schemes: Black, Dark Blue/silver, Red/silver, and Yellow Fluo/silver.
