Tech 1Z 2016
- The Alpinestars Tech-1 Z auto race
glove for 2016 features an ergonomically evolved chassis design and new
extended silicone grip patterning offers excellent fit and grip where and
when it is most needed. The Alpinestars Tech-1 Z race glove offers maximum
comfort and feel through an innovative Nomex and flame-resistant cotton
construction that ensures optimal temperature control. The innovative Nomex®
construction encompasses minimal seams, internal stitching in the palm and
upper fingers, and reduced overall material usage offers superior levels of
performance, cockpit comfort and sensitivity on the car’s controls.
- The palm of the Tech-1 Z glove
features a new, extended, and ergonomically designed grip treatment on palm
with increased silicon surface areas for improved feel, durability and grip.
The new palm and finger design of the Tech-1 Z racing glove is in a
black-print pattern which follows the fold of the palm and fingers with the
removal of Pittard leather completely from the interior of the glove.
- The Alpinestars Tech-1 Z glove has a
pre-curved glove design with internal stitching for maximum fitted feel, and
reinforced stitching on the fingers to help prevent material twisting. The
Tech-1 Z glove has been modified in sizing around the wrist and thumb and
these areas have been reinforced over the previous Tech 1-Z glove models.
New for 2016, the Tech-1 Z glove also has a built-in 3mm lower palm pad for
added protection against steering wheel and shifter vibration.
