I am looking at three Alpinestars for warmer weather riding.. but I still have another 3 months ro so before I have to make the decision..

Alpinestars
SMX-2 gloves (between a shortie and 3/4)
SP-X gloves (3/4 gauntlet)
3/4 gloves (yes as the name implies)

The SMX-2 and 3/4 gloves have pricing in line with the Icon you are looking at... the SPX is more money... but.. its your hands and your decision I guess.

I'm leaning towards the 3/4s...

I have the Alpinestars SMX-2 AirCarbons for warm weather. Good gloves. I got a piar that had some "quality control" issues (Mainly fading plastic and some of the glue on appliques coming off), called Alpinestars and they RMA'd them right away, just cost me $3 to mail them back. You sometimes pay a few bucks more for Alpinestars gear, but the quality and customer service are worth it.

Have tried out the Astars '3/4' gloves, they're a good cooler weather glove, as I prefer a 3/4 to full gauntlet any time I'm riding further than around town.

i have a set of the SMX2 alpinestar gloves as well. they breathe really well and are very comfortable. they should hold up ok in the event of a spill, as the palm is leather and the knuckles are carbon fiber. i think its a very good glove.

So in your opinion, how do the 3/4 A* compare to the SMX-2s? If you read up, you will see that those the two I am considering for the warmer weather...
