[quote=BoochZilla]After some intense deliberation, ADV's own, Goldilocks came in to get fitted for some new REV'IT! summer leathers at RevZilla HQ here in Philly. We were happy she finally settled on a Women's Phoenix Jacket and Women's GT Pants. We then dragged her into the studio for an impromptu few shots... not sure if she loved or hated me for it, but she was a good sport

Speaking from prior shopping experiences with Goldi, those were mild deliberations...

Thanks for taking the time with us the other day, Anthony. Much appreciated. I'm digging the Shoei RF-1000.

I've got about 10,000 miles of on and offroad wear and tear on the Off Track jacket I bought back in 2007 and have had no problems with it so far.


Here's my Off Track in action :)

Glove Question:

I am ordering some gloves for racing, tarmac rally, and tarmac hill climbing. I figure if I am going to get some street gloves I might as well be able to use them for touring too. Considering these Rev-It models due to my liking of the Rev-it jacket and overall fit:

GT corse



or:

the GT H20 Gloves:






Any suggestions or reviews?

thanks


Edit: I have visited all the local and semi local bike shops and none have any sport gloves to even try on....the nearest rev it dealer is a 2 to 3 hour drive from here....so I have not tried them on.

How do you feel it performs in terms of noise at speed? What did you have previously?

The Shoei is extremely quiet. That struck me more than anything. My previous helmet was an arai rx-7rr4 - loud.

Thats so funny. I would consider my Shark RSR2 to be much quieter than my RF-1000.

I have lusted after a few Arai RX-7's but the profile seems to be the only shell shape to fit my "long-oval".

I would be interested to see if anyone else chimes in here and what their thoughts are.

I think we have just created a helmet noise food chain. ;-)

Are you doing any riding this weekend? I think I am doing some backroads in Valley Forge Sunday.

REVIT GT Corse Glove

H Seth,

Thanks for dropping us a line.

The obvious first question is that of your weatherproof needs? The GT H20 Gloves are more well rounded for multi-season / condition use by employing the REV'IT! Hydratex Waterproof / Breathable integrated liner system.

The REV'IT! GT Corse Glove being a summer weight, true race glove is going to be lighter and non weatherproof but does afford some additional race specific features. Perforation, a carbon fiber knuckle system, Kevlar protection on the back of the hand and a more agressive race shape / cuff are all differences between the Corse and the H20 models.

My gut is for you to protect yourself for racing first and if you can get some extra use out of the glove for touring its a bonus.

My two cents. Hope it helps. ;-)

Anthony

How does the sizing compare on these gloves? I take about a 10 in European sizes and the Alpinestar gloves I use are a Large.

Thanks


looks like an XL will be a wise choice.

Hey Seth,

All of REV'IT!'s gloves run small compared to American sized Gloves much like Alpinestars do.

I wear an XL in REV'IT! GT Corse's and an XL in all of the A-Stars Gloves I have ever had on. I will say that the XL in REV'IT! is akin to a perfect fit on my hand while the XL in Alpinestars leaves a tiny (1/16") bit of room at the end of the fingers on me.

Best advice for you is L in the REV'IT! unless you are absolutely busting out of your Large A-stars gloves. If that was the case I might reccomend going up to an XL in the REV'IT!.

On an unrelated note, the GT Corse glove jsut was ranked as the #1 summer glove over 100 euro by MCN in Europe. See the article here

Let me know if there are any other questions I can answer about those guys.

Cheers,

Anthony

Question

Oh oh !
Just realized that we dont have one but two vendors for REVIT gear !
Even better !

I hope you wont mind I already post the following question to the other thread.

--------------
My wife and I were suffering of heat a lot during our previous trips.
Especially because of our trousers.
They are black with no vents.
Meaning that on the highway to Italy or Spain (we're leaving South of France), when we stopped, we were drowned under our own sweat.
Extremely unpleasant to say the least.

I put my hand on a RevIt Catalog. Very nice !!
And we saw probably 2 trousers that could be what we're looking for.
The Dakar and the Turbine.
We need a waterproof trousers able to handle temp up to 105F - on the highway summer hell.
And with a great protection, wife's adamant on that.

Which one do you think will be the best ?
TIA,
/thierry

Steve,

Shoot me your full name and email, and I will ping REV'IT! on your behalf.

I know the staff there extremely well.

Hot Weather Riding Pants

Hi thierry,

Great question! (Easy one as well)

Turbine Pant is best suited hands down for the application you are describing.

The Turbine Pants are slated as the most protective hottest weather riding pant on the market. They feature upgraded Dynax Mesh, Pro Life CE2 Armor as well as Superfabric on the high-impact areas. They also have detachable Hydratex weatherproof liner to combat the wind / rain. The Turbine does not have any thermal capability though.

The Dakar Pant is more rounded and will perform to a lower temperature range than the Turbine. The increased range sacrificies ventilation at the top end of the temp range.

Click here for the Turbine Pants and the Womens Turbine Pants.

Also feel free to call us, email or reply here with help on other questions and sizing.

Cheers,

Anthony

Gerard's New Infinity

Gerard rode his V-Strom down from Norther NJ last week to pick up some new gear for the season. He is a hardcore commuter / adventurer and admitted frequent *lurker* here on the forum. He came for a Multi-Tec and left with a helmet and a REV'IT! Infinity Suit after seeing it in person.

He's 6 Foot and 155lb and very thin. A Large Infinity Suit fit him ideally even though he is out of the normal REV'IT! Size range for this suit. As we have said before - the Infinitys run long. Posting a pic so others can see how the suit should fit.



Check the REVIT Infinity Suit out Here.

Anthony

Jack's Philly to Alaska Adventure Ride for Pediatric Cancer Research



As a quick aside from our typical technical gear discussions:

We recently met Adventure Rider Jack Broomall a few weeks before he would depart on a 10,000+ mile journey for a great cause. We "adopted" him into the RevZilla family and are now aiding him in anyway we can on his journey.

He officially departed from Philadelphia yesterday on his BMW F650GS. He has a thread going in the Ride Reports Forum.

For the duration of his trip we will be offering all RevZilla customers the ability to donate a dollar during their checkout.


ADV Ride Report:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=463900&page=2

He also is blogging and twittering as well.

www.2Wheels2Alaska.com

@JackBroomall on Twitter

We recently blogged a few times about it as well. Blog.Revzilla.com
