BIENVENUE AU (WELCOME TO) BARCELONETTE

The Southern French Alps greeted visitors with fresh mountain air, blue skies, and plenty of sunshine. Truly the perfect environment for a relaxed 3-day motorcycle event. The festival village was located in the public park of Barcelonnette that is centered around the building of the Musée de la Vallée de l'Ubaye. The green and peaceful spot has a very tranquil atmosphere and proved to be an ideal location to set up our REV’IT! stand in for 3 days.

It was also conveniently located next to the town center. The center of Barcelonnette offers plenty of delicious restaurants and bars to enjoy your evening with fellow riders. The locals were very welcoming to all the riders in their village and were happy to see so many riders visiting their town after the normal vacation season ended. Smiles all around.

ALLONS MOTO (LET'S GO RIDING)

Each day, the park was filled with visitors checking out all the latest motorcycle models, gear, accessories, and tours at one of the 65 stands. The event was not only about feasting your eyes on the latest two-wheeled machines and goodies, it was also about riding. The surrounding roads are amazing.

If attendees wanted to test ride a brand-new bike, this was the place to do it. More than 10 motorcycle manufacturers were present with their fleets of demo models, so they could just take their pick. The curvy roads and trails in the French alps are the perfect proving grounds to test the abilities of the newest bikes. No wonder all the test ride slots were quickly taken up every day.

The riders that missed out on a test rides were still able to take their own bike out for a trip up to the beautiful mountain roads in the area. For example, the Col de la Bonette, one of the highest roads in Europe at 2,800 meters and an experience you should not miss when you are in the area.

The riders that preferred to venture off-road also had plenty of local trails to keep them entertained. Over 3,000 riders registered to receive the book with routes of the best local “roads” in the Vallée de l’Ubaye Serre-Ponçon.

LE MONDE DU REV’IT! (THE WORLD OF REV’IT!)

We were happy to welcome many visitors and REV’IT! customers from France and all around to our stand to tell them more about our brand, innovations, and new products in our FW19 adventure collection. Especially our brand-new, award-winning Expedition H2O boots, which proved to be a big hit among the visitors of the festival.

The feedback from our customers was very positive and it is always very motivating to hear the enthusiasm and stories from our REV’IT! riders. We made one rider (Mickael from Lyon) even happier because he was the winner of a brand new Offtrack outfit and Dirt 3 Gloves after entering his e-mail in our newsletter competition.
