Engineered skin® design methodIn the continuous search to improve techniques and materials, REV’IT! has led the field in developing smart and innovative products over the years. Inspired by the natural qualities of the skin, REV’IT! has developed the unique Engineered skin® design method to improve the fit and performance of motorcycle safety apparel. The result is an ergonomic pre-shaped product that is capable of handling extreme pressure and offers the best balance of protection and comfort.
REV’IT! began developing its Engineered skin® design method back in 2001, when it set out to improve the functional performance of materials by relocating seams to areas at lower risk for impact. This innovative concept further evolved with advances in 3D design, which allowed designers to observe a garment from every conceivable angle before placing a single physical stitch. This advance aided considerably in the development of new patterns and construction techniques. Every stitch that perforates an area of fabric or leather inherently compromises the material’s durability. But with the Engineered skin® construction method, engineers can mitigate potential failure points while improving overall performance. Durable, flexible and abrasion resistant materials are placed at key areas for maximum protection while maintaining comfort and freedom of movement. Applying stretch material in these areas helps REV’IT! strike a perfect balance in its garments between wearability and safety.
Today the principles of Engineered skin® can be found in nearly every item REV’IT! develops, which indicates our commitment to safety, quality, and design. Engineered skin® has already made a significant mark on the motorcycle apparel industry, and this dynamic design philosophy will continue to influence future REV’IT! product development for years to come. Always evolving, always improving - Engineered skin® is part of our DNA.
Tailored Technology design methoDThe Tailored Technology design philosophy combines our years of experience and deep-rooted technical knowledge with our abiding love for fashion and design. The Tailored Technology concept incorporates essential road protection and functional details into REV’IT!’s stylish and elegant urban collection.
All REV’IT! products are designed following the Engineered skin® philosophy that consists of three core principles: safety, functionality, design. The urban collection, however, is designed according to the Tailored Technology design credo, which uses the same REV’IT! core principles, albeit with a different order; one that puts design first, followed by safety and functionality. All three principals are equally important in both philosophies; only the sequence in which they are used and the vision per design differs.
Products with the Tailored Technology label are designed to integrate in daily life, combining just the right amount of fashionable detailing with cleverly disguised safety and functional features. These products provide both safety and comfort without sacrificing style. The result is a truly unique range of motorcycle apparel that is as sophisticated and stylish as it is functional and safe.
