Gp Plus Astars . etc

For those of you who wear longer gloves like the GP pro, Plus, Tech Alpinestars gloves. Does the longer wrist protection cover your jacket or do you wear in under your jacket?

Does it get in the way of anything? thanks!

It should go over your suit/jacket and no it doesn't get in the way, at least not on the track.

It should cover the sleeve pretty well. I have A* GP Pro gloves and used to wear an Icon jacket that is too bulky to fit inside the gauntlet of the glove, but my Dainese jacket fits great. If your jacket has wrist size adjustment, make sure its on the tighter side so it isn't all bunched up in there.

My SP2s cover both my jacket and suit with No issues.

Depends on the jacket... the more race oriented jackets will fit in the glove.

My mx1 suit fits with a jacket and long sleeve shirt on. Good bit of room in the gp pro gloves

I will never buy anything A* again. One little 50mph get off in the grass and my gloves were shredded. But to answer your question they work perfectly as long as your jacket fits properly.

Pretty much any of them. In the last few years their quality has went down hill. Mostly the stitching in the gloves isn't as sturdy as it should be.

No bueno. I'm grabbing a pair of he Velocity's. I'm convinced they're the best bang for the buck.
