RevZilla Gear Discussion / Q&A

Welcome to the RevZilla.com Gear Discussion / Q&A Thread


It has been 5 years of “Hey this is Anthony from RevZilla.com…”, since we’ve given our thread an update. It’s time for a hard refresh.

Our goal for this thread is to have a central location where inmates can get answers to their gear questions and discuss the world of motorcycle gear.

RevZilla Gear Discussion / FAQ Topics for Discussion:
  • Gear Questions
  • Gear Answers
  • Gear News (index below)
  • Inmate Opinions / Answers
  • Notable Gear Experiences
  • How did your gear perform in a crash?
  • How would you improve / update your gear?

We have a great relationship with the brands we carry and they’re extremely receptive to feedback. If you have feedback, lets hear it.

My name is Hi-Viz Brian. I hijacked Anthony's account to give this thread an overhaul. I spend much of my time helping riders with gear and little old ladies cross the street (true story). Please, don’t hesitate to ask me questions, that’s what I’m here for….when I’m not lusting over the most recent ride report. You can expect timely and opinionated response based on my experience. I have been riding consecutively since ‘95. If I am unsure of a particular question, I look forward to finding the answer. That could mean tapping TeamZilla’s 500+ years (combined) of riding experience or grabbing the product from our warehouse and walking through its nuances together. However, TeamZilla’s experience doesn’t compare to the wealth of riding knowledge in ADVrider. If you’ve logged hundreds or thousands of miles in a particular product and can offer helpful advice, please do so.

If you find yourself in Philadelphia, stop by our new gear boutique and say hello!

Address:
4020 South 26th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19112




For information about an order, send me a PM or reach out to our Gear Geeks at 1-877-792-9455 or cs@revzilla.com.

Thanks, ADVrider !

-Hi-Viz Brian

Hey DiscoDino,

Good Question - I am not sure if you saw, but I posted some hi-res shots recently of the REV'IT Tempest Glove and WebBikeWorld.com just wrote a great write-up after beating the hell out them. ;-) (link to Tempest review)

The short of it is that the Tempest is Waterproof and breathable by utilizing the REV'IT! Hydratex Z-liner which is sewn in to the glove. Not sure if you are familiar with Hydratex, but its a Gore-Tex like membrane that lets water vapor out and won't let any condensed water or precipitation in.

It passed WBW's bucket test, which is complete submerging underwater of a fixed length of time. I have not worn it in a monsoon, but I haven't seen or heard of any real problems from any customers yet.

From a Temperature standpoint, this is REV'IT's highest end bombproof, weatherproof winter glove - built for the nastiest of cold and precipitation.

Also, they use Exkin, the same insulation which is used in the Cayenne Pro and the other higher end items. Exkin is at least 4x the insulating rating while being half thick to maximize feel. The Tempests also use Schoeller PCM (Phase Change Matertial) which is a temperature regulation layer, in the glove, to absorb excess heat when your hands are warmer and release that stored heat when hands start to cool. Think of it as a thermostat membrane in the glove. It is not electrical in any way, it actually works through a chemical reaction in the PCM.

Bottom line: The Tempest eats cold weather's lunch. ;-)

I'm wearing the Tempests this winter and have been very happy. Their baby brother with some differences is the Kelvin is a very solid cold weather glove as well. We have both the Kelvin and the Tempests in stock at RevZilla.com.

I hope I answered your questions without getting too long winded. Let me know what else I could offer, Dino.

Best,

Anthony

Superfabric, Exkin and SAS-TEC armor all play a part in the Jacket's design and year round application.

Aside from the basics the mesh backed chest ventilation as well as the generous soft-lined wind collar are two of my favorite features as well.

The full Flickr Gallery is available here. REV'IT! Navigator Jacket Pics

It will be available late Feb 2009 at RevZilla.

Full Frontal ;-)


Mesh backed Chest Vent with rubber rain-gutter at top.


Font right sleeve closeup


Not the best back shot we've ever taken ;-)


Back Right Arm - Notice Venting and Superfabric on high-impact elbow area


Extended Frontal Softlined Windcollar


3-Layer Detachable Exkin Air (Thermal) and Hydratex (Wind/Water Proof) liners


Interested in hearing folks reactions to the new gear or answering any pointed questions.

Anthony

Very nice. Almost wish I had waited on buying my Shade in favor of the Navigator.

Father Daughter Infinity Team

Sam and is daughter traveled from California to try on REVIT Infinity Suits and left with two - his and hers - for their upcoming California to Oregon ride on Sam's RT.



He is 6'2 and slender - perfect in a XL(Tall). She could have used an XS if REVIT made it, but the Small did fit her in the shoulders and waist although it was a bit long in the arms and legs.

Had to drag them into the studio... Its was pretty cool.

Do I need to call for availability or can I just place my order online?

When you pick your size and color on the product page we give you the availability. We never take an order that can't be fulfilled. There are varying levels or stock depending on the item.

If you have other questions or still want to chat just give us a ring.

Sorry for the lag on this. I was at the Moto GP in Indy and literally flew in 5 hours ago... back in the office :-(



Wish I was still at the track. Got some cool shots though. We got in the Garages and up close with the LCR Honda REV'IT! Bike!

Great Service

My dad (copa mundial) and I drove into philly today looking for a good pair of pants for a south america trip im departing for in the next few weeks. After walking down the scenic sidewalk to their shop I opened the door and was amazed. On top of the great selection, RevZilla had outstanding customer service. Matt brought me through and taught me everything there was about my options. After trying on a few pairs we decided on the one. Little did we know we would leave with Rain gear, 2 sets of gloves, and some pretty cool stickers.

these guys are great. they believe in personal service that caters to the avid rider.

thankyou.

Thumb Now That's Fast!

I placed an order for a new helmet Sunday night after 10:00 pm. When I arrived home from work today (Tuesday) there was a box from RevZilla waiting for me. I didn't even know the helmet had been shipped, since it arrived on my doorstep only three hours after the shipping confirmation e-mail hit my inbox!

I need to ride around a bit and see if these guys have opened a store two blocks from my house that I just haven't noticed yet...

Hi Giuseppe,

No, I promise we aren't sitting in a van at the end of your driveway either...

We are set up to be fast, the inherent processing and lag time in this industry is one of the big reasons I founded RevZilla with my partners to begin with. I knew we could do it faster and was frustrated with my online options.

Thanks for noticing the effort and giving us a nod.

Anthony

Yo Old Man!

Love the name. We call one of my riding buddies that.

Glad you gave us a shot and came to to get sized up. That was Matt that helped you out. He's KullZilla on here.

Let us know what else we can do for you. Thanks again for the nod.

Anthony
