DEVELOPING FORTHE LOVE OF RACING

Ever since we produced our first leather racing suit back in 1997, we encouraged racers around the world to test it to the limits… And beyond. Then, inspired by feedback coming from various national championships, and fueled by our constant desire to improve our products, we stepped it up to the pinnacle of Motorsports in 2008: MotoGP.

About this page

what happened
SINCE 2008

Starting our MotoGP adventure with Frenchman, Randy de Puniet, accelerated our ambitions massively. With an analytical approach to development, Randy methodically pointed out improvements that saw our suits draw the attention of many other top riders, despite being a new kid on the block. Since then, we’ve become a household name inside the MotoGP paddock, as well as among track day enthusiasts.

Our shield logo has donned the backs of many riders since our entry into the top level of motorsports, such as Álvaro Bautista, Danilo Petrucci, Alex Rins, Simone Corsi, Bradley Smith and many more. Some riders are still riding with us today, and some aren’t. But each of them has made their mark on our constant drive to continuously improve and impress, on track as well as on the streets.

IN IT
TO WIN IT

Our primary goal is to acquire feedback from the world’s best riders, and to implement this knowledge into the development process of gear designed for sports and racing enthusiasts. However, our development ambitions go hand in hand with the love for motorsport. Numerous wins, podiums and championship titles have been achieved by REV’IT! riders across countless professional motorsport disciplines.

And with a list too long to mention, we don’t intend to stop any time soon. Even more so, we’re actually stepping up the pace. With a strong squad for 2020, all ingredients are there to extend our list.

Ladies and gentlemen, we proudly present: the 2020 lineup of REV’IT! Riders…

DANILOPETRUCCI

FACTORY DUCATI TEAM

There are two ways of looking back at Danilo Petrucci’s 2019 season. You can either put emphasis on the first part of the season or on the second. We prefer to look at the season as a whole. And, in looking back, it can be summed up as Danilo’s most successful season to-date. His first season aboard a factory ride, a point-scoring record, and scoring his first ever MotoGP win in a straight shootout against multiple World Champion, Marc Marquez. So, how was your first year on the job?!

About this page

It doesn’t take more than scrolling through the various media channels to learn there have been challenges. Whether it was the result of a case of the “Sepang Curse” - riders who ended the Sepang test quickest never managed to become world champion - or not, Danilo found himself on the back foot after the summer break. Before the break, he was a regular podium contender, a first-time race winner, and an almost sure bet for a top-6 finish.

Sneak peek 2020: Those who’ve spent time around Danilo will know why this doesn’t mean a write-off for the Terni-Terminator. As one of very few riders to stick around after the CRT-era in MotoGP, he knows what challenging circumstances are, and how to make them work in his favor. He’s leaner, meaner, and hungrier for success than he’s ever been. And with a one-year credit left on his Factory Ducati contract, he’ll be riding his heart out to show why he’s on the very short list of riders who managed to take the fight to the champion before coming out on top. Whatever you do, never write Danilo off.

AUGUSTO FERNÁNDEZ

TEAM MARCVDS

Augusto has taken the Moto2 class by storm. From being a substitute rider, to becoming a title candidate in his first full season, to the fact that he had taken over from the reigning World Champion inside the incredibly successful MarcVDS team. It’s impressive, and can’t be seen as a coincidence…

About this page

Humble off track, but a beast when the visor closes. Those who remember the Misano round of 2019 will know Augusto doesn’t take any prisoners. Not coming through the ranks in a traditional way, the former European Junior Cup champion and European STK600 race winner had never made an appearance on the Moto3 grid yet he had been snapping at the heels of the grid’s protagonists since day one.

The aforementioned way to success is similar to MotoGP REV’IT! rider, Danilo Petrucci, who also used the backdoor entrance into MotoGP coming from stock-based machinery. Typically, these kinds of machines come with limitations only a rider can make up for as setup options aren’t virtually endless like with prototype machinery.

If you develop yourself as a rider in such way that you can make up for technical limitations, landing yourself inside an established team with incredible knowledge about setting up a bike to your likings might be the recipe for success. Three victories in 2019 surely seem to back up a claim like this. Furthermore, 2020 year will be an interesting season for Augusto for many reasons.

While taking over from reigning World Champion, Alex Marquez, his spotlight just started to shine even brighter, and with most MotoGP contracts up for grabs in 2021, this season might be considered a good audition to land himself in the pinnacle role of motorsports. However, this pressure is secondary to the goal for 2020: rewarding the MarcVDS team’s confidence by staking a claim at the Moto2 World Championship title. Stay tuned!

LORENZODALLA PORTA

ITALTRANS RACING TEAM

Lorenzo’s resumé is a shiny one, as it includes an Italian Championship title, a Junior World Championship title, and most recently added, the 2019 Moto3 World Championship title. There is seemingly no stopping Lorenzo Dalla Porta in his hunt for glory, and 2020 will mark the start of a new chapter in adding more gold to his collection: his debut season in the hard-fought Moto2 World Championship.

About this page

Calm, ambitious, and realistic: if you’ve read an interview - or two - with Lorenzo, these words will not sound strange in relation to the Italian Stallion and reigning Moto3 World Champion. Last year’s campaign was soaked in consistency. With a string of second-place finishes when he should have won - most times losing out by minimal margins after a slipstream finish - Lorenzo’s smile seemed glued to his face when celebrating back in the pits.

The secret about his calm approach became more and more evident when he managed to create a comfortable lead in the championship - including a first win of the season in Germany - before he put the hammer down during the flyaways to make his mark.

A hattrick of wins during the overseas campaign saw him take the title early, but at the same time, had critics questioning his ability to come out on top in a direct battle. It also made him a favorite for various teams in the intermediate class who were looking to add some royal champion’s blood to their stable. In 2020, we will see Lorenzo compete next to his 2018 teammate and good friend, Enea Bastianini, who had an impressive rookie season himself in 2019.

His approach? Get up to speed quickly, and cut down lap times, and improve his confidence to make the best out of a two-year deal with the Italtrans racing team before maybe adding the shiniest of crowns in the future: the MotoGP World Championship.

SIMONECORSI

MV AGUSTA TEMPORARY FORWARD

Corsi’s comeback! The Italian veteran, Simone Corsi, is no stranger to REV’IT!, as he was our first-ever Moto2 rider back in the inaugural season of the intermediate class. A multiple podium finisher in the class, Simone might well be the most experienced rider on the grid having raced on no less than five different chassis before adding a sixth in 2020 by the likes of maybe the most iconic motorcycle brands of all: MV Agusta.

About this page

In the single-engine supplied class, the chassis is crucial in making a difference in the hard-fought field. And with Simone’s experience aboard a diverse range of chassis, he knows what works and what doesn’t.

This might prove to be the crucial step for the iconic MV Agusta brand, which despite solid steps throughout last year’s campaign, is still hunting down their first podium since their return to the GP paddock. And perhaps more importantly, their first Grand Prix win since Italian Legend Giacomo Agostini’s last victory back in 1976.

Looking back at 2019, his 2020 teammate, Stefano Manzi, came close to putting the iconic brand back on the podium during the ultimate round in Valencia. Starting from the first row of the grid, he just came short to stepping onto the box ultimately finishing fourth. This means the first podium is still at stake, and knowing Simone, this will prove to be a great deal of motivation to firstly beat his teammate before aiming at the top 3 spots throughout the season.

We couldn’t resist and team up, once again, with the aimable Italian, making it a total of three Italians in our 2020 lineup. Be sure to watch this history-filled combination as it might create momentous results this season!

JEREMYALCOBA

KÖMMERLING GRESINI HONDA

Another reigning World Champion in the REV’IT! stable for 2020. Meet new recruit and reigning Moto3 Junior World Champion: Jeremy “Iceman” Alcoba. After an impressive season in the incredibly hard-fought junior talent pool, and after promising races as a substitute rider, Jeremy finds himself as a fixed value on the grid riding for the successful Gresini squad in 2020.

About this page

We are known to work with a tight-knit group of riders, which allows us to start up true relationships with those representing the REV’IT! shield logo on track. This approach also comes with a big emphasis on working with riders who share the same mentality, and Jeremy is no exception.

Mixed success aboard the well-established Estrella Galicia Junior squad saw him land in a different team; the Laglisse Husqvarna team. The change of teams didn’t break morale, on the contrary: Jeremy showed where the nickname “Iceman” came from and took on the heavy competition before repeating a feat fellow REV’IT! rider, Lorenzo Dalla Porta, did back in 2016: claiming the Junior World Championship title for the Husqvarna crew.

During his intense junior campaign, he made three appearances for his 2020 team. On only his second approach, while adapting back to Honda machinery and getting up to speed with a new track, Jeremy outclassed his temporary teammate and scored points.

Together with his approach towards a race weekend, his incredible personality, and his outright speed on track 2020 might prove a very interesting season for the new REV’IT! recruit.

FILIPSALAC

SNIPERS TEAM HONDA

A promising first year in the Moto3 World Championship which was followed by a successful podium-filled campaign in the Red Bull Rookies Cup, Filip ended the 2019 season with a solid fifth-place finish in the ultimate round in Valencia. Noticed by various top teams, he will change machinery in 2020 to compete next to one of the protagonists of last year’s Moto3 season. Not a bad promotion for the Czech youngster, who is one of our new recruits for 2020.

About this page

The 2019 season showed a steep learning curve for Filip, outclassing his more experience teammate on various occasions and taking the fight to the sharp end of the pack multiple times. With his eyes on the prize and performing above expectations looking at the machinery he had at his disposal, he managed to land himself on the radar of the prestigious Snipers team.
Their team strategy is clear: team up a promising youngster with an experienced frontrunner to fight for the individual championship title, as well as the team trophy.

The calm and cool Salac knows how to work with this kind pressure on his shoulders, and he will surely look to hit the ground running in 2020 after his fifth place finish in Valencia.

With a double-race winner as teammate, he has a helpful example in the box with him that allows him to get up to speed quickly and find the right hand in getting everything setup for glory.

ÁLVAROBAUTISTA

HRC FACTORY HONDA

Álvaro went against all odds last year when he managed to challenge multiple WorldSBK champion, Jonathan Rea, from the get-go. The 16 wins and a grand total of 24 podiums finishes aboard the all-new Panigale V4R were beyond anyone’s expectations, but finishing runner-up still managed to leave a bitter taste in Álvaro’s mouth. We all know where this is going…

About this page

Honda is known for shaking things up, putting their resources to work to achieve great goals. And for some reason the turning of a decade is always a special moment for the Japanese manufacturer, as can be seen when they left their RC45 V4 machinery after 1999 to give American star, Colin Edwards, an absolute weapon: the V-twin RC51. This gave Honda the 2000 World Championship title at first attempt.

Fast forward two decades later, and history repeats. Honda steps back into the WorldSBK ring as a full-factory outlet, bringing a brand new Fireblade to ensure they bring a gun to a gunfight.

And who better to hand over the bike to than last year’s revelation Álvaro Bautista? Our longtime REV’IT! rider, Álvaro has undergone multiple changes with the turn of this decade. From becoming a father to a beautiful daughter, to signing with the biggest motorcycle manufacturer in the world to race in their prestigious effort to take the WorldSBK crown.

However, one thing remains the same, as you’ll see him in trusted REV’IT! leathers during the 2020 season. In striking HRC colors, that is.

PJJACOBSEN

CELTIC HSBK RACING

It’s been ten years together, and our relationship with PJ landed back where we began at the start of last year: the domestic American championship now known as the MotoAmerica structure. Ambitious as ever, he wanted nothing less than the title on his first attempt, and although some labeled it unrealistic, he nearly nailed it straight out of the gate…

About this page

The MotoAmerica championship differs from the world stage on more variables than meet the eye. That didn’t stop PJ from staying focused with his eyes on the prize throughout a season that was met with a slightly slow start due to things needed to get dialed in.

Once comfortable on the bike, the former WSS Vice-World Champion proved his pedigree by taking multiple wins back on home soil.

Hunting down the championship after getting into the groove, PJ took it all the way down to the wire when his final shot at the title was taken away due to an incident that saw the rule book come out as the judge to determine the 2019 season outcome. This saw PJ taking another vice-championship title, one he’s looking to set straight in the 2020 season.

Back at it in the MotoAmerica championship, PJ will race with the Celtic HSBK Racing team with only one thing on his mind: become the first MotoAmerica Supersport champion of this decade. And as you will all understand, we were happy to team up with him to join him on his road to victory before unlocking future ambitions. Stay tuned!
