    Hi Guys,

    I am planning on upgrading my gloves. Currently using Aspida Ares, My budget is around 7k and mostly touring use.

    I was looking at some of Alpinestars gloves but was wondering if it is actually worth spending money on an entry level A* gloves like sp8 v2 or buy something like Viaterra GRID or Shima RS2? What do you guys think?

    Thanks,
    Aswin

    When I'm riding with the helmet on, I'm invisible and people just deal with me as the guy on the bike :)

    In my humble opinion, I think it very hard to suggest this to somebody else as to a premium European brand vs an indian brand riding gear. I will say this, the indian brands are getting better and better and if you have access, please try the indian brands, see how they fit and feel and if you like go for it.

    I have owned A* gloves, I have Dainese gloves as well. I am sure they feel more premium and maybe the leather is softer and more comfortable and more tactile, but because of our riding conditions, wear and tear of these items are also higher.

    There is no right and wrong here. Just try and feel before buying.

    CHEERS!!
