The REV’IT!
women’s ADV team A first in its class

REV’IT! is proud to name its first ever all-female team of sponsored ADV motorcycle riders in the United States.

To better spotlight the contributions of female riders to the ADV segment, four female riders have been chosen to represent the REV’IT! brand in the 2017 as its first-ever all-female ADV team, following an exhaustive search that pulled candidates from across the country.

Finalists from over a hundred applications were chosen based on their combination of passion, leadership, riding ability, and sheer grit. The team’s collective riding resume encompasses tens thousands of miles over more than a dozen countries through multiple terrains, and each member is an embodiment of the “ADV” spirit.

The REV’IT! Women’s ADV Team will play an essential role in field testing current and upcoming women’s ADV gear, both in everyday rides and at a series of off-road appearances and events in 2017. At the end of the season, these women will have the opportunity to meet in-person with the REV’IT! team of designers in New York City to give first-hand feedback and recommendations.

Meet our extraordinary new team of sponsored riders below, and for more news and updates on the REV’IT! Women’s ADV team, please follow along on our social channels, @revitsport and facebook.com/revit, or on ADVrider at https://goo.gl/wrDCYU.

Since 1995, REV’IT! has led the way in designing protective apparel for the serious female motorcyclist. From patterning to materials selection to the design details, each part of our women’s products are meant to be taken to extremes.

Note: Due to logistical issues, this team was limited to US residents only.
