Found some Airwave Pants

Unfortunately, we have no way of seeing what dealers still do or do not have them in stock; your best bet is probably to just wait this one out!

Ride safe,

I think I just scored the last pair of size medium short Airwave pants on the planet! Being shipped from FC Moto in Germany to US now. Psyched to be getting these just in time for the hottest part of the riding season here in NH.

Am I correct that these will not come shipped with any hip pads? Or do they come with the thin foam pads, that I would upgrade to the seesoft option?

Thanks.

Airforce Disappointment

I've been a fan of Revit fit & design for many years. From gloves & pants to one of the original Cayanne Jackets but a recent experience has caused me to question my belief that the gear would protect me in a get off
I flew to California to buy a bike. When I got home the Airforce jacket that I used was dirty so in the wash it went (its first wash)
Imagine my shock & disbelief when I lifted the jacket out of the washer and saw several seams failing. A seam on a sleeve had failed so bad I could put several fingers thru the hole.

It was then that I remembered seeing a tag on the inside of one of the pockets. I was shocked when the tag read "hand wash only". I thought hand washing only applied to woman's lingerie, not protective gear.
How can a jacket that requires hand washing or else the seams fail protect me in a slide down the pavement??

A. Thanks for doing this thread; Real dialog is the best way to nurture a long-term relationship between a manufacturer and customers.

B. I’ve owned lots of Rev’it gear over the past several years. You’re my go-to manufacturer. My second vendor is Klim — I don’t mind paying their prices, if the equipment and service meets my needs, but it doesn’t very often.

C. I like the Euro cut (6’2”, 190 lbs, 34”W, 34”IS), Hi-Viz gear, and never use liners -- occasional rain and cool weather are very easy for me to manage.

D. I live in Phoenix, so am in mesh at least 9 months out of the year. I’ve had a Sirocco for the past several years and worn it down to the nub, touring around the west and southwest. I would really love to get an update/replacement for it. I know there’s the Levante, but it seems light on features, pockets and general tour-ability. A non-mesh doesn’t cut it — I have a Sand 2 which is fine under 90 degrees, but I spend a bunch of time between 90 and 110 degrees, and I want/need full mesh for that. The HV Tornado is nice, but I want 3/4 length, and more pockets for touring.

Thanks for listening.
Hey Desertbilly, thanks for riding with us! And taking the time to comment. We always welcome product ideas, that's why we're here. We'll pass on your thoughts on the mesh/touring/3/4 length jacket. Products are created based on demand, so letting us know that's what you need is the first step.

Ride safe,
REV'IT!

Sand 2 Hydration Loop

Another shout for Revzilla's service here too. There was a small defect on my waterproof liner when I got it, with one piece of seam tape that was not adhered (about 2" of stitching showing). An email, and three days later, I had a new liner.

My QUESTION FOR REV'IT is...where is the hydration loop on the shoulder??
One of the reasons for getting this jacket was the ease of adding a bladder. Without the loop on the shoulder, it's not really gonna work. It's on the Revzilla video, but not on the jacket (nor can I see it in any pictures of the jackets).

When I went back to the Revzilla video again, I thought they added a caption to say this(? - Can't check youtube now from work), but there's no mention of it in the text of the description, it's still says 'hydra bag prepared', and they'll still sell you the $70 Rev'It version of the USWE hydration bladder that you can buy for 1/2 that price. (BTW, the 1.2L one works just fine instead of the .5L.)

FWIW, I did a ride this past weekend and used the hydration bladder along with a Moveo neck brace. Since they also neglected to add shoulder connections for the Moveo (see my posts and Rev'It's replies above), I used a bit of Velcro through the now unused tab on the brace to create a loop for the tube. Worked out OK for the hydration bladder. If you're not using a neck brace, there's a small (tiny) loop on the collar where the tags were hung that you may be able to use to hook the tube to (I was going to try using a paperclip before attaching it direct to the neck brace).
Hey Fifthcircle and lmychajluk -- this is something we've requested more information on from Europe. Just wanted to let you know we're looking into it. Thanks for your patience!

Striker fit

Are there any other glove styles that share the same fit with the Striker?

I'm interested in the Dirt 2 gloves, but haven't found any locally to try on. Do you know if they fit more like the Striker (perfect for me), or more like the Sand Pro (too long for me)?

Thanks in advance.
Hey WiseGuy. Looks like you heard a rumor... the sizing of our gloves has nothing to do with American or European cuts but is just a function of styling. The Striker is slimmer just as a coincidence. The Neutron gloves share a similar fit -- but it is because they are a very similar style. We did an in-office "test" to determine whether the fit of the Dirt 2 was more similar to the Sand Pro or the Striker, and the result was unanimous: they're a Sand Pro style fit.

Hope that helps a little!

Ride Safe,
REV'IT!

Hey Wise Guy. Congrats! Glad you scored a pair. They'll come bare in the hips, no foam pads. But assuming they're from the most recent manufacturing run, they'll be upgradable to the Seesoft option.

Richard
Hey Richard, very sorry to hear about the seams. The reason we recommend hand washing is because we could never possibly create a set of machine wash instructions that is foolproof. In GENERAL, the products can safely be washed in a modern, front-loading washing machine -- but machine models, internal parts, water temperatures, etc. all vary so greatly that hand washing is the best way to ensure we're not unnecessarily exposing the products to compromising factors. Fabric softener, for instance, should never be used with the products because they can affect the waterproofing on jackets. If we issued a set of instructions saying that the products could be washed in modern, front-loading machines but included the caveat that fabric softener can NEVER be used, we would still invariably get warranty returns every year from people who didn't read all the way through and added softener. It's not just that we don't want to process warranty returns -- it's that we don't want people to have to hassle with returning things. So we try to keep it as simple as possible.

We're not sure what happened with your jacket -- but it's definitely a rare case. If you want to send us a private message, we can look into possible repairs or other options. It's not guaranteed we can help, since the jacket was manufactured in 2006, but we're always glad to check!

Hope this helps.

Ride Safe,
REV'IT!

I love what you guys (REV'IT) is doing with the city / street collections!

One thing though,

I really wish you guys had some more options for summer urban looking jackets, that still provided enough protection for highway get off.

The ignition 2 jacket is nice, as are the tornado and airwave, but these are still very technical looking riding jackets.

Not to mention the cut from most of those jackets (with maybe the exception of the ignition) is quite boxy compared to older rev'it gear I tried. It just does not work for tall skinny folks like me.

Always looks boxy and frumpy.


The new leather jackets (urban / city collection) definitely has a much better fitting silhouette I have to say and am very happy with those options. Just wish you guys would expand it out more for summer riding jackets.

Hey JBF! Thanks for the feedback... We are looking at some perforated leather options for next summer. Hopefully we'll have some updates for you soon!

jeans lombard

I picked up a pair of these in spring and really like the fit. I have a thin build and wanted some jeans that weren't baggy feeling on me. These have been fantastic! I bought the long version as these were all that was available in my waist size. But I find the knee armor hangs a little too low. Some adjustability in armor would be nice especially based on the price point.

No problem! I love what you guys are up to. I think you are definitely heading in the right direction. Will definately be buying your products in the future.


To also echo JeffPM's statements. The new jeans you guys are producing are great, but would like more adjustability in armor height.

One thing I have noticed though is that it seems that quality control is a bit lacking on these.

I ordered a pair from revzilla a while back and the fit was really strange. Alternatively, went to a local dealer and tried on lombards, campo, and the fit was spot on.


Other issues i noticed were armor pockets sewed too tightly (could not get armor in and out easily) whereas another version of the same pant in the same size, the armor pockets were perfect. This also happened with armor height. Even in tallest armor pockets, often times the armor was not at the same height consistency with the same size / model of jeans.

Obviously these are part of the process of manufacturing (and different craftsmen/workers skills and abilities im sure), but it does make online ordering way more of a hassel.

In any case thanks so much for having this forum for feedback, etc. Again love what you guys are doing with a lot of the new products so I hope you keep going in this direction.

Hi JeffPM & JBF! We figured we'd address you in the same reply, since you seem to be experiencing similar things with the jeans. And you're both right: The jeans are a little quirky. It's our first run with jeans, and making a product that is, by force of its own nature, expected to be both functional day wear AND good riding protection is, well, tricky. Not just for us, but for our manufacturers. It's a steep learning curve and we're very appreciative of your support and feedback as we continue to climb it.

The jeans were released last season (Fall/Winter 2013), and our designers have scrambled to integrate customer experiences and feedback into the new styles coming out this fall. Some of the issues you addressed with have been addressed (and hopefully resolved), and there will be expanded fit options (read: a little more relaxed!). We'll keep the more European cuts, though, too. The urban styles have been very popular and we're certainly going to keep innovating in that direction.

Ride Safe,
REV'IT!

What does Rev'It recommend for spot cleaning DWR materials (i.e., Sand 2 gear)? Most of the laundry spot cleaners' instructions say to 'wash normally' after using, which I'd rather not do unless the entire garment needs it (Techwash gets expensive, and it takes a while to drip dry...).

Hey lmychajluk. Tech Wash is our recommendation, always, to be safe. But a little soap and water should do the trick if you're just doing some spot cleaning. Never, ever use fabric softener!
