Hey MTman,

Yes, the grey on the Cayenne Pro pants will match the grey used on your Dark Green / Grey Cayenne Pro jacket. Nice work tracking a pair down!

Cheers,

If you are currently wearing a size 9 in Held gloves, you will likely take a size Large in the Alpinestars Tech Heated gloves. Before you purchase, I recommend giving our Gear Geeks a call to confirm the proper size.

Hi Pablo,

I had one of our staff members here try on a pair who also takes a size 8 shoe. He was able to comfortably wear the size 41 Apache boots. While the older REV'IT! gear used to be more of a slim European fit, their 2012 and 2013 collections fit much more American (or larger) in most products. If you have any other questions on sizing, please don't hesitate to ask.

Cheers,
Ali

Hi Dwenglis,

I have not spent any time in either of those 3 helmets, but several folks on our staff have. If you can, I suggest reaching out to our Gear Geeks to compare the 3 modular helmets. I can tell you that the Shark is the only one you can wear in true 3/4 mode, the HJC has the sportiest look and the Lazer Monaco Carbon is BY FAR the lightest modular helmet I've ever held.

Cheers,
Ali

Hey Rusic,

Did you snap that pic at EICMA? We've seen the new Sand 2 and will be doing a video review soon. Stay tuned to RevZillaTV to hear our take on the new version of the REV'IT! Sand jacket.

Ali,
This is GREAT news! It's so hard to find gear that fits us bigger guys. It's frustrating!

I'm new to this site and new when it comes time to picking out winter gear. I'm looking for a jacket that will keep me warm in temps that go down to mid / high 20's. I live in Brooklyn and work in Manhattan. My morning commute is 30 min at most and I leave for work around 6am. I have a Joe Rocket jacket that I use during late spring to early fall, when temps start to hit mid 40's is when I need to put on layer and start to get ready for my bike to go to sleep. I already wear a long sleeve collar shirt (work requirement) and adding a thick sweater makes it very hard to zip my jacket up. I also use a neck flees since my collar is short cut. So I'm looking at Teknic, Rev'It and Olympia as my winter only gear. My most important need is to wear as little added clothing as possible over my shirt and my neck doesn't get called. I want to avoid wearing a neck warmer. Being waterproof is a plus.

To sum up: My #1 thing is being warm during my morning (30 min) commute, #2 staying dry, #3 - good protection. Anything above 50's doesn't concern me as I will be using my Joe Rocket gear.

From everyones experience, can I get what I need from these brands Teknic; Rev'It or Olympia? How high do collars go? Will they stop wind from entering or do I still need to wear my fleece neck warmer? Are there any other issues I should be aware before I buy?


I get hot easy and I can bare cool temp well, but have a limit.


My choices are:

Teknic - Freeway (Hi-Viz)
Rev'It - Horizon (Hi-Viz)
Rev'It - Energy (Hi-Viz)
Rev'It - Legecy (Hi-Viz)
Olympia - AST2 (Hi-Viz)
BMG - Discovery

Hi-Viz is for being viziable and safe but will consider other colors.

I will be heading over to RevZilla store in PA to exchange my Olympia X-Moto this Saturday.

Also any pance recomindation is appriciated as well. Keep in mind that this gear is WINTER USE ONLY!!!


Thank you for everyonce help.

winter gloves

I am going on a trip through the Patagonias to Tierra Del Fuego (50% dirt) and I need some waterproof gloves. We will have long periods at high speed on highway and lots of slower gravel roads. I expect temps in the 30's in the mornings. I am looking at the Bastion, Fusion and Alaska gloves. Can you rank them (in order) for:

Warmest?
Most comfortable?
Best feel for controls?
best for gauntlet in and out of jacket? (Cayenne)
best with grip warmers?
best protection?

Thanks for your input. You guys run a solid outfit

Hey Worthydog,

All 3 of those REV'IT! GTX gloves are great options. Here are my replies to your features: Warmest: Bastion or Alaska. Most Comfortable: Fusion. Grip feel: Fusion. Cuff adjustability: Bastion. Best with heated grips: Fusion. Best Protection: Alaska. As you can see, the responses are quite varied. I suggest looking at what features are most important and make the decision accordingly. If I had to pick only one, I would vote for the Alaska, as it offers the best protection and I prefer leather gloves and hard knuckles, but that is my personal preference. The new Fusion gloves are very comfortable and will save you a few dollars too.
If you still need help selecting the right gloves, our team of Gear Geeks are here to help.
Cheers,
Ali

great input. The fusions sound interesting. What kind of temps will they handle with and without grip warmers? price is not an object since I will keep these for years. Besides, you feel stupid saving a few bucks when your hands hurt.
