Re: Warning, fake Alpinestars gloves from ebay seller dilpeggg
I'm not sure if they would hold up just as good because there is no kevlar lining, but who knows how much that really helps. Either way, I'm not willing to risk it. I didn't feel that this deal was too good to be true because they are the old 2008 model. I purchased my Tech 1-R suit for $950 from an actual retailer when they discontinued the model. Great discounts are out there when new models come out. Besides, I like the 2008 color scheme better than the 2013 models so I thought this was just old stock on clearance. I learned my lesson.
As far as an update, the seller has agreed to refund my money but he requested that I not leave negative or neutral feedback. I just ignored the question, but he still thinks these are genuine gloves, as if Alpinestars just decided to release some gloves with no kevlar lining. He said because the lining is only 40% kevlar, it makes since if you cannot see it. Whatever...I'm not sure how he explains the misspelling of Alpinestaps. He even went as far as sending me the e-mail conversation between him and a previous customer that is happy with his purchase of these gloves, as if his previous customer is an expert. Well, his previous customer rides on the street and I ride on the track. There is a difference. I don't want to take a chance.
