Based on the Engineered skin® design philosophy the harmonica construction mimics the natural anatomy of the hand. It has been constructed to imitate the movement of your hand when you make a fist; providing a perfect fit and allowing perfect freedom of movement.
The PWR | yarn stitching is positioned on the outside of the glove, eliminating any potential pressure points at the seams, and giving these gloves the ultimate sensitivity every racer demands.
Pittards® Digital™ grip patches
REV’IT! digital grip features a digital print, which offers an excellent grip under high-performance riding conditions.
- stretch lips
- regular cuff
This garment has been designed with a race fitting shape, meaning it has been engineered for speed and a figure-hugging silhouette.
The ventilation panels on this garment allow for optimal airflow to keep the body cool while riding.
Knox scaphoid protection system
Knox’s patented (Patent No. EP 1594378 B1) scaphoid protection system was invented to reduce the risk of hyperextension of the wrist during a crash which can cause scaphoid injury. This is achieved by adding 2 strategically placed pads located on the palm, which are designed to prevent the glove from gripping on road surfaces, whilst at the same time, it also helps to reduce the energy transmitted.
TPU aluminium protector at shoulders, elbows, and knuckles. The dual-comp protector consists of a 3D, pre-shaped honeycomb structure of TPU material, topped by an aluminium high-impact shield, for ultimate sliding. This lightweight hard part increases the level of protection significantly, without adding the considerable weight of traditional plastic hard parts. When fighting G-forces, every gram counts! Under the shoulder and elbow parts is ergonomically shaped, CE-approved armour, perfectly placed to maximize impact-resistance while preserving freedom of movement.
Self-contouring foam that is not CE-approved, but still offers a great number of impact-resistant properties, this product is used in areas where mobility and fit are a must, such as the hips. Temperfoam® comes in a solid version as well as a perforated version.
TPU hard-shell finger knuckles
Thermoplastic Urethane (TPU) is a highly durable synthetic material, used in many REV’IT! products for protection and waterproofing.
- TPU hard-shell little finger protector
TPU hard-shell thumb protector
Thermoplastic Urethane (TPU) is a highly durable synthetic material, used in many REV’IT! products for protection against impact and to optimize sliding.
ventilated dual comp protector
The dual-comp protector consists of a 3D, pre-shaped honeycomb structure of TPU material, topped by an aluminum high-impact shield, for ultimate sliding. This lightweight hard part increases the level of protection significantly, without adding the considerable weight of traditional plastic hard parts. The dual comp protectors have been perforated to allow airflow to enter the gloves keeping your hands cool and comfortable.
3D air mesh
This knitted fabric has an open, 3-dimensional structure that ensures good ventilation while riding. 3D air mesh is a must-have for long touring riders.
Cowhide has been used in this garment for optimal fit and protection.
Kangaroo leather has been used in the construction of this product.
Pittards® goat Armortan® WR100X
This leather structure is constructed from microscopic fibrils, which are randomly intertwined to form fibre bundles. Armortan® encases these fibril bundles with microscopic, ceramic armour-plates, which are more resistant to abrasion. This increases the durability of the leather by preventing wear on contact surfaces and materials. The leather has also been processed specifically to improve breathability and overall comfort.
Pittards® goat Digital™ WR100X
The Pittards® WR100X tanning process provides excellent water repellence and very low water-uptake, for greater insulation benefits. The unique Pittards® water-resistant technology limits water-uptake into the fibre structure. This guarantees excellent grip and sensitivity, even under the most adverse conditions. The result is optimum grip and maximum control, ride after ride.
synthetic PU leather
Providing better breathability then natural leather, this synthetic leather offers enhanced wearer comfort.
Purchased these for use on the street and track, and was favorably impressed with the design and comfort. The triple closure on the wrist keeps the glove securely in place and, overall the fit is very natural. Hard knuckle and palm armor add protection and are otherwise unobtrusive.
Unfortunately, the construction quality or QA appears to be pretty low. Within around 45 hours on the bike, with no incidents or abuse, two independent seams began to unravel; one at the rear closure, and one along the index finger. This is the kind of simple mechanical failure shouldn't happen on protective equipment with such low wear & tear, particularly at this price point. Closer examination of the seams reveals that the thread used to mate the palm side to the glove's upper is simple cotton, rather than a more durable sinew or Kevlar. Given that these failed under routine street conditions, I would not recommend them for use in more critical situations such as track riding.
Overall, these gloves have a lot going for them and initially I was very happy with them. But seeing them fail in basic construction makes it hard to recommend them as safety equipment.
