Alpinestar GP Pro Gloves on Ebay

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Alpinestars-SP...A1%7C294%3A200

do you think these are real? they seem cheap, are coming from china and just seems like they could be snidy.

My theory is if it looks like shi.t & smells like shi.t, chances are, its shi.t.

I paid over $200US for my Alpinestars GP Tech gloves a few years back and when they arrived, the first thing I noticed was the "Made in Vietnam" label, stitched on the inside of the glove. Still, I can't fault the gloves themselves. As for the GP Pro on ebay, I didn't think they came with carbon knuckle protectors, but "Injection Moulded PU Knuckle Protection System":

The ebay ones are also sitting very flat, whereas the originals have moulded plastic wrist protection which retains its shape. They don't look right to me at all.

Those gloves on ebay are not GP Pro, but are instead SP-1 as the advert states.. Completely different from the top of the range GP Pro..

It's still not to late to get your bid in .. Get in there !!!!!
