With the rising temperatures out on the roads, stay cool and safe without sacrificing your style. We’ve got the gear that lets you do it all.
It’s that time of year again. When the temperatures and weather seem to work together in perfect harmony - every day of the week - and you’re constantly looking for any excuse to go for a ride. The warmer air also brings the temptation to take a more “minimalist” approach to riding gear so you’re not soaked in sweat by the time you reach your destination.
Luckily at REV’IT!, we know this conundrum all too well. This is why we’ve engineered a lineup of jackets specifically designed for hot-weather and summer riding. You should never have to sacrifice style and protection for coolness, no matter the conditions you’re riding in. So to help keep you chill on those quick rides across town on hot summer days, we’ve put together a buying guide of ride-ready garments that merge lightweight performance and protection in fashion-centric, well-ventilated packages.
New for 2021, the Quantum 2 Air has all the bold style from the Quantum 2 design series – a series of leather jackets and track-ready one-piece suits - but in this case, with maximum airflow as it’s a fully ventilated mesh jacket. And if you’ve ever ridden through the city, midday, mid-summer, you know the speeds are low and the breeze can be non-existent, thus solidifying the Quantum 2 Air as an ideal new riding partner this season.
You’ll find our ultra-thin SEESMART armor included at the shoulders and elbows, and an inner pocket along the spine that’s ready for the available SEESOFT back protector insert, you know, in case you’re looking to up your protection game on the city streets. And thanks to the open structure of the SEESMART armor along with the lightweight mesh construction of the Quantum 2 Air, airflow isn’t compromised so you get optimal climate control directed toward your body.
The Eclipse became an instant classic for a reason. Available for both men and women, this textile jacket sits at the crossroads of subtle style and performance. It’s a stripped-down, no-nonsense jacket that gives you the airflow you’re looking for without sacrificing safety on the streets.
To make sure you’re covered, the Eclipse jackets are constructed with abrasion-resistant materials and CE-certified armor at the shoulders and elbows. Upgrade your safety quotient with the available SEESOFT back protector and your ride will be a breeze.
Summer maybe the hottest season on the calendar, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have its fair share of rain. For the times when the elements catch you off guard, and you need a jacket that will keep you both dry and cool when you need it, we bring you the Torque.
Available for both men and women, the Torque jacket comes with a detachable hydratex liner along with ventilation at the chest, back, and sleeves so whether it’s warm or the weather just took a turn for the worse, you’re ready to ride. You’ll find SEESMART armor in the shoulders and elbows, with an insert ready for a SEESOFT back protector for when you want to upgrade.
If you’re looking for timeless style paired with modern protection and warm-weather performance, look no further. The Vigor jacket provides plenty of ventilation while on hot sprints across the city but is more subtle than your average textile mesh riding jacket.
Lightweight, CE-certified impact protection is included at the shoulders and elbows while an insert pocket for the available CE-level 2 SEESOFT back protector easily ups the armor ante. The Vigor is available for both men and women.
