Abrasion-resistant Agustini and Monaco leather
CE-approved armor comes standard at the limbs

Prepared for SEESOFT™ back protector insert
By installing our technical experience directly from MotoGP into the Akira suit, you can experience the safety, freedom of movement, and air of a professional racer whenever you gear up. Combining highly abrasion resistant Agustini and Monaco cowhide leather with intelligently placed stretch tabs and PWR | Kevlar stretch panels means you’ll feel like you are in a second skin while remaining protected up to spec. CE-approved armor comes standard at shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees, as do dual-comp protectors at shoulders, elbows, and knees. To optimize your fit, both shoulder and knee protectors are adjustable. The semi-perforated outer shell combined with a removable lining and aero cool 3D mesh lets the Akira keep you cool while you're carving up your favorite string of corners.
COMPLETE YOUR LOOK
This type of leather is highly abrasion resistant, long-lasting and extremely protective. It's rugged leather with a natural shine giving it an elegant look.
augustini full grain cowhide
This high-quality, full grain cowhide is extremely durable and breathable, providing a combination of comfort and protection on any length of ride.
Lorica® is constructed from microfibres that give the material characteristics similar to those of natural leather, including a leather look. This low-maintenance material is not as strong as leather, but softer and lighter, with a consistent thickness that makes it easier to process.
Neoprene is a synthetic rubber useful for protective gear. It is abrasion-resistant, chemical-resistant, waterproof, somewhat stretchable, and buoyant.
This PWR|shell stretch material has aramide and nylon fibres for extra strength.
The stitching in motorcycle garments contributes greatly to the abrasion resistance of the total gear. This is why REV'IT! uses safety seams on garment areas at increased risk of impact. Safety seams have a visible as well as an invisible seam. This construction keeps the material of the outer shell together, even when the visible seam is thorn.
Betac® CE Protection
The Betac® protection in our suits is the same as our heroes use in professional racing series such as MotoGP. They are CE rated for the highest level of protection. The use of Velcro makes sure they are fixed to the outer shell, preventing them from moving or turning in case of an impact.
adjustable Betac® CE protection at shoulder
This MotoGP spec protector is adjustable on the shoulder, making it possible to customize the fit of the protector to the position on the bike. Thanks to the strong Velcro it will stay in place once positioned.

double leather seat
The seat of your garment is a critical impact zone. To prevent the stitches from tearing, we reinforce the leather seat, giving you two layers of protection.
dual-comp knee slider type A
Dual-comp knee sliders type A are constructed from a high-performance TPU compound, combined with an extra durable PA6 compound. Specially designed for racers who want high-performance sliders, these higher-quality compounds offer good feedback, giving you maximum durability without compromising your feel on the road. The sliders come in a pair of two, each anatomically shaped to fit either the left or the right knee, and high-quality Velcro attaches the sliders to leathers, ensuring they stay where they need to. Type A sliders are available in three colours, to fit every colour combination of your leathers, and the dual-injected colours keep the design visible even when the sliders begin to wear.
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.
prepared for SEESOFT™ CE-level 2 back protector insert - Type RV
The back protector pocket in this REV'IT! garment is tailor-made to accommodate the SEESOFT™ CE-level 2 back protector insert Type RV - an easy upgrade to maximize safety.
Stitching seams can be the weakest link in motorcycle garments, as they can rip upon impact. This ripping of seams can be prevented, however, through safety-stitching technology. REV’IT! uses safety stitching on garment areas at increased risk of impact (directive on the definition of risk category in zones 13595-1:2002).
double calf zippers
The double calf zippers facilitate additional space for bigger calves, making it easier to close the suit around the ankles.
aero cool 3D mesh
This open-loft three-dimensional mesh helps facilitate optimal ventilation while riding. It features integrated lines to wick moisture away from the body, keeping riders cool and comfortable under even extreme circumstances.
- comfort cuffs
A removable, washable mesh lining with stretch inserts for more comfort.
replaceable grip part at inside knees
This part at the inside of the knees gives you extra grip for ultimate control in the corners. It also protects the leather from wear and tear.
- stretch lips
The stretch panels in this garment aid in flexibility. They contribute to the riders comfort as they provide great freedom of movement.

This is my first suit. The only other one I worn was a rental AGV sport suit. I've only had the chance to take this suit out to the track once so far but i can say that it fits tight! definitely race fit. I went to NCBIKE on March 25th and was riding my 2003 CBR 600RR. In turn three, riding the track CCW, the front end came out from under me and sent me sliding on my stomach like a penguin at about 70MPH. The suit held up great, only minor damage to the knees as well as thighs with a small hole on my left thigh. (I was making a left turn) there's also two small holes on my left arm where the Kevlar fabric meets the leather. All in all, the suit was still good for the rest of the day and so was I. The only injury I suffered was a bruise on my right arm right above my elbow on the inside. other than that i walked away from the crash and i'm not even sore the next day! Recommend 110%!!
