With interesting product names it is not only possible Alpinestars serve, but the summer glove Stella SMX-1 Air V2 Glove already has a rather cryptic name. The cuff-free stylus protectors for women not only look fancy, but can also convince with their material mix of mesh textile, full leather and polymer ankle protector in the warm months of the year.

Touchscreen compatible with fingertips

This is mainly due to the great feel and the excellent mobility, which is achieved, among other things, by ergonomic stretch inserts between thumb and forefinger and only thin padding on the fingers. There is nothing to complain about about the women’s-specific fit, not even about the features: the fingertips are touchscreen-compatible so that you don’t have to take off the gloves to operate the navigation system and smartphone.

A Velcro fastener at the wrist closure securely fixes the gloves. The lack of protection, which no jacket can compensate for, is less appealing here.

Noticed positively: Look, good grip, material mix

Noticed negatively: Insufficient wrist protection

Sizes: XS to XL

Price: 69.95 euros

MOTORCYCLE Rating: 3.5 stars out of a possible 5


The material, the good grip and the touchscreen-compatible fingertips were convincing in the first test. The biggest weak point of the Alpinestars Stella SMX-1 summer glove, however, is the insufficient protection on the wrist.
