They were patient with my emails about the latest gear, found everything I needed. Let me order two sizes of gloves knowing I can send one (unused) set back when I find the right fit, and ensured I had everything I need. As typical for large orders, free shipping and they had everything I needed in stock.

Very few, if any stores I have dealt with in my 20+ years of road and adv riding have been able to impress me. Local shops can be expensive and arrogant, some internet companies have poor service and very high restocking fees while seemingly knowing little about their product..

These guys have it all and unless there is something they just don't carry, I will continue to use them and sing their praises. Glad to have them on the market. And if I have to spend $3000 twice, I would rather do it with them any time.

Man, I'm sorry to hear that! I'm glad we could make things a little easier for you. We appreciate your loyalty and all the positive feedback, especially in such a tough situation.

After stalking your profile I see you're in New Jersey. If you're ever looking for a buddy to rip around Millville or the Pine Barrens, let me know. The KLR is no slouch (maybe a little), but I also have a few mx bikes I can borrow for a day. The same goes for NJMP.

Have a great weekend !

My wife got her first bike and ordered a few things from Revzilla. Unfortunately, her DS helmet was a bit big. Called this morning to set up an exchange for an XS. Not sure who she talked to, but they were very polite, helpful, efficient and made it very very easy. The other items fit great (all the web info/descriptions/videos/reviews help a lot). You guys definitely earned her loyalty. Thanks!

Hey guys, thought I'd share some feedback for REV'IT. After some trying on and exchanging of various things, I bought an Excalibur and a pair of Tornados from you a few months back. (Completely happy with purchase.)

Having just finished about 6000 miles of riding in them, can I suggest to REV'IT that they make their zippers much more robust? Bigger, and with bigger tabs that can more easily be grasped with gloves on. The lining system works great, but is fiddly: lots of (small) zippers, tabs, snaps, etc. to piece together. I like the gear and how it fits me, but I think it could be simpler to use, if that makes sense.

Thanks for your dedication,
Mike

That's solid feedback, Mike. Thank you. I will certainly pass that along to REV'IT!. If their future collections feature larger zippers, we know who to thank.

Keep me posted if you have more suggestions.

Those are three very nice bikes. Some version of the KTM 690 is on my motorcycle bucket list.

Hey riding gaijin. We're lurking around here and saw your feedback -- thanks for throwing in your two cents! We use the forum as a way to collect comments/suggestions/etc for our product teams in Europe, and we'll definitely pass on your thoughts.

I would recommend you keep your eyes open next spring too for some expanded liner options... We're trying to cut out the fiddling! If you have other ideas/comments, you can always drop by our forum thread at http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=974521

Ride safe,
REV'IT!

How would you compare the Gaerne SG12 to the G-React boot? This would be for my 18 year old who rides like well....an 18 year old! He doesn't race but does ride hard. He is coming from very inexpensive and beat up boots so either would be a significant improvement.

How much more protection and/or features are in the 12's?

Thanks.

Hey Sam,

I compared size 12 SG-12s to size 12 G-Reacts. Below is a picture of each boot back to back. You can see the SG-12s have a lower profile. The picture helps explain what I meant a few posts ago when I compared modern profile (SG-12s) boots to older mx cut boots (G-Reacts).

SG-12s (Left) G-Reacts (Right)



G-React Boots
  • 4lbs 9.4oz per boot
  • Fairly easy to bend at the ankles with my hands. However, it was only easy to bend the G-Reacts laterally. They held firm medially.
  • Larger overall profile
  • Similar hard protection to SG-12s
  • Standard firm footbed

SG-12 Boots
  • 4lbs 13.5oz per boot
  • I was not able to bend them at the ankles, laterally or medially. However, they have a decent amount of flex back and forth due to their dual stage pivot system.
  • Lower overall profile
  • Dense padding around the ankles internally, which locks you in.
  • More comfortable / padded footbed that has horizontal grooves from heel to toes for better grip and air circulation.

From a quality standpoint, both pairs of boots are extremely well made. The added cost of the SG-12s gives you better ankle support that is noticeable (not incremental), a smaller profile, and better overall comfort. If he rides hard, he'll be safer and more comfortable in the SG-12s. The G-Reacts are an exceptional pair of boots, but the SG-12s have the unfair advantage of an extra $200 worth of jibity jibs (as Anthony would say).

If I can help with additional pictures or details, please let me know.

Hey moggi1964,

I'm working with our merchandising department to get those sizes added to our site. It should be completed today or early tomorrow as long as our distributor can source those sizes. I will have an answer for you soon.

Thanks mate; considering them for the trip to Indy for the MotoGP. PR3's are just about shot and hearing about poor mileage on the PR4's sadly.
