The Perfect Gloves

Finding the right hand protection so your hands stay safe on any ride, anywhere.

Adventure riding can take on wildly different meanings depending on the rider you’re talking to. Casual day trips out of the city, long weekends navigating around mountain passes and service roads, or long-haul trips spanning multiple countries, continents, and ecosystems. Anything is possible when you combine the spirit of exploration and the capabilities of a well-sorted ADV motorcycle. One constant among adventure riders, however, is the ethos of proper preparation, no matter the destination. That goes for the gear you strap to your bike all the way down to what you wear for the ride. And no adventure riding ensemble is complete without the proper pair of gloves.

At times, navigating the world of adventure riding hand protection can feel just as vast and challenging as any expert-level trail system. And just like an unknown route you’re looking to explore, all you need is a guide or a map to see you comfortably through. That’s why we’re here. REV’IT! offers a selection of ADV gloves with different price points and performance. We’ll walk you through our top offers so you can equip yourself with the right pair of gloves to suit your demands.

Sand 4 GlovesSummer Glovin’

The Sand 4 gloves were designed as the perfect punctuation to the Sand 4 H2O jacket and pants. But, like its predecessors, the Sand 4 gloves are versatile enough to be worn with any REV’IT! adventure jacket and pants combination. Keeping with tradition, the newest member of the Sand family is at its best in warm weather riding. The instantly recognizable TPR knuckle protector design helps direct airflow into the glove and over your hands, keeping them cool when temperatures rise.

TPR protectors on the fingers, thumbs, and TPR sliders on the palm increase protection, giving you more confidence in the saddle. At the fingertips, there are built-in Connect Finger Tips which allow you to use touch screen devices without taking the gloves off. If you’re looking for dependable, incredibly well-rounded gloves at an affordable price-point, look no further.

SAND 4 H2O GLOVESWaterproof Versatility

Building on the success and multi-tool-like characteristics of the Sand 4 gloves, the Sand 4 H2O gloves go even further. Constructed with the riders who ride, rain or shine, the Sand 4 H2O trades ventilation for waterproofing.

The design team was able to incorporate the waterproof and breathable hydratex®|Z-liner membrane without sacrificing dexterity or comfort. The Sand 4 H2O gloves also have TPR protection on the fingers, thumb, and palm as well as Connect Finger Tips for unencumbered touchscreen device use.

CAYENNE 2 GLOVES Enjoy the Heat

The beauty of adventure motorcycle riding is that your day doesn’t end when the pavement does. And when you want to go even further, you need to know that your bike and your gear will keep up. The Cayenne 2 gloves were designed alongside the Cayenne 2 jacket and pants with this sort of persistent exploratory nature in mind.

We envisioned the Cayenne 2 gloves being as rugged as the jacket and pants bearing the same name. So the partially ventilated Cayenne 2 was built with dual comp protectors and offers safety without sacrificing dexterity, making it the tough second skin you need. When your ride demands more of you, you need to know your gloves are up to the challenge.

DIRT 3 GLOVESOn or Off-Road

If you’re looking for lightweight, ventilated gloves with the level of protection usually associated with standard touring gloves, you’re in the right place. But don’t let the name fool you. The Dirt 3 gloves were designed with both on and off-road performance in mind.

The Dirt 3 is a venerable fortress with a TPR hard shell knuckle with Temperfoam® underneath, a TPR palm slider, TPR and Temperfoam® finger knuckles, and PWR|Shield knit at the palm. Combine that with ventilated panels and Connect Finger Tip technology and you have gloves ready to take on anything you can throw at them and still keep your hands comfortable and firm on the bars, all day.

Volcano GLOVESBuilt-in overload of feel

Our gloves don’t get much lighter than the Volcano gloves. Made for adventure – whatever your interpretation of the concept – they’re decked out in purposeful looking mesh, comfortable, soft TPR protectors, and a built-in overload of handlebar feel, thanks to grippy and comfortable microfiber fabric. Strategically placed ventilation extends its range of use, so your hands stay fresh and cool when the temperatures rise.

The variety in color options further highlights the versatility of the Volcano gloves. Subtle in design, effective in execution – that pretty much sums up the Volcano gloves.

Mangrove glovesTechnical and tactical

You’re obviously not going to want to skimp on gear when you’re new to the adventure segment, but we understand you might not want to break the bank either. Meet the Mangrove gloves. Entry-level, lightweight, ADV summer gloves with ample ventilation and mesh, for both tarmac adventures and light off-roading, without ever getting that ‘basic’ feeling.

The technical and tactical looks of the matte suede material, the sturdy yet soft protection, and the red accents make for an attractive pair of gloves that will boost the confidence of any rider – old and new. Hands to bar you’re served with lots of feedback and feel, and when you need to check your phone or adjust your route, the Connect Finger Tip allows you to without the need to take them off.
