Gloves Chevak GTXFGW080 1 Review
Outstanding simplicity and sleek design
Thermolite® insulation and high loft fur lining
Protection provided by a Visco Elastic knuckle
100% waterproof GORE-TEX® membrane
Outstanding simplicity and sleek design are the main aesthetic characteristics when describing the Chevak GTX gloves. They match effortlessly in combination with almost every jacket in our collection, whether it’s an urban overcoat or technical touring jacket.
Yet, make no mistake, underneath the subdued design, it’s all about functionality at the highest level. Sliding your hand into the glove, you will instantly be convinced that this glove is purpose-built to face cold weather. The GORE-TEX® waterproofing technology incorporated in the Chevak GTX gloves guarantee that you’ll stay dry whatever Mother Nature might throw at you on your daily commute. On top of that, the unique single-motion closure system enables you to easily put on the second glove in no time at all.
goatskin drum dyed with WR finish
Tanned leather made from goatskin is considered extremely durable, and is often used for gloves and other products that require a soft hide. Goatskin with a WR finish has undergone a process that makes it water-repellent and soil-resistant. The WR coating is bonded to the material at the molecular level, enhancing the material’s natural water-repellence and soil-resistance, without altering how the fabric looks, feels, or breathes.
Flocking is the process of adhering small fibre particles (called flock) onto a surface. This process creates a texture that picks up water.
PWR|shell ripstop stretch
Durability and great abrasion resistance are the defining characteristics of PWR|shell, thanks to its special ripstop weaving. Thick reinforcement threads are interwoven at regular intervals into the fabric in a crosshatch pattern known as ripstop.
PWR|shell 500D stretch
Consisting of 100% high-performance polyamide yarns, PWR|shell 500D stretch takes the best properties of a nylon with a high melting point, tremendous tear and abrasion-resistance, and excellent durability and then puts the unique REV’IT! design stamp on it. This PWR|shell fabric comes in a stretch variant. The 500D indicates the density of the fabric. The higher the number the better the abrasion and tear resistance properties are.
These knuckle protectors are made from visco-elastic rubber. This material ensures the knuckles are protected, while the elasticity allows the hand to move naturally and in full comfort.
high loft fur liner
This type of insulation mimics the natural insulation properties of animal fur, a high loft construction; containing more air then fiber; it is a type of natural insulation that traps in the heat.
Thermolite® insulation material is very soft, with a very high insulation capacity. REV’IT! uses two specific kinds of Thermolite®: Thermolite® Plus and Thermolite® Active.
The GORE-TEX® membrane is the essential element of all GORE-TEX® Gloves. It contains over 1.4 billion microscopic pores per square centimeter. These pores are 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, but 700 times larger than a water vapor molecule. This makes the GORE-TEX® membrane completely waterproof from the outside, while allowing perspiration to escape from the inside. An oleophobic, or oil-hating, substance is integrated into the membrane, preventing the penetration of such compounds as body oils and insect repellent, which could otherwise affect the membrane.
single motion closure system at cuff
The innovative closure system allows for adjusting and closing the wrist straps in a single movement.
connect finger tip
Never take off your gloves again to answer your phone or navigation system. The connect fingertip has been specifically designed to operate touch screens.
The material used on the index finger of the glove has a visor wipe function. It helps clear water or moisture off the visor for better visibility when riding in wet weather.
- tour fit
Bought these as winter gloves for daily and touring use. Even though i have been using them daily the gloves remain with no obvious signs of wear (1 season). They are quite stiff in the beginning, but after a while become softer. The thick liner protects from cold at the expense of overall feel of the controls. Personally my hands will remain warm without the use of heated grips with these gloves up to approximately 10 degrees Celsius, below that gradually become cold ( my bike has hand guards). GTX membrane makes sure that rain remains outside the glove at all times. The glove going above the jacket maybe easier to wear, but on rainy days lets water sip in slowly.
