REV'IT! Cayenne Pro HD Reshoot!

Its been a long time coming, but we had to reshoot one of our most prolific and original vids on RevZillaTV the REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Jacket and Cayenne Pro Pants.

Part 1 is Application, Features and Fit






We also know we needed to shoot a video of removing the liner system and the armor. Part 2 is the deep dives into the tech details and nitty gritty.





For reference, this is the original video we shot way back in the day! (which was 10 months ago )





Let us know if we missed anything. We know you will. I think we have come a loooong way and have had lots of fun along the way. And I am still wearing the same shirt.

Bravo Anthony. Excellent re-shoot! If I had not already purchased a CP from you guys this video would have made me get out the wallet.
Speaking of, I bought the Cayenne Pro a few months back and want to give a shout out to Patrick. He did a great job and even though you have excellent videos and great ADV support threads going ultimately he was the reason I purchased the jacket from Revzilla.

I just got back from a quick trip to Ouray, CO, and dealing with 98 degree temps I will be looking for a better flowing Summer jacket. That brings me to the Turbine. Maybe this was covered in an earlier post but does the SAS-TEC back protector fit in the Turbine and are there zippers for those that already have the CP water liner to use it on the Turbine?

Also, if you are keeping score add another +1 to the "For $379.99 it should have come with a liner" crowd.

Cheers,
Robert

Hi Robert,

Thanks for the love on the CP vid. They were made with love. Our videos are starting to take on a life of their own. Did you see the customer service video? We were all sugared up on skittles that day.

Regarding the Turbine. It will be as bombproof as the CP but is meant to flow air. The Turbine takes a SAS-TEC protector.

Also regarding a liner for the jacket, we are still waiting to hear, but the CP liner will not zip in. There are no internal zips on the Turbine. More to come on that.

ALSO I will be posting a full high-def Turbine Reshoot today... interested in hearing your thoughts.

Thanks,

Anthony

Turbine Question and Answer

----------> This was a private message and our response. It's a question that makes a lot of sense for everyone....

Hi Dennis.

Both great choices.

The Sand Pants will do it all, but will be very warm in anything 75/80+ unless you are at speed. They do have some vents.

The Turbines Pants however, unlike the Turbine Jacket, do come with a water proof windproof liner. You can always add a thermal base layer under them with the wind-water liner in for chilly mornings / evenings.

In the heat with the liner the Turbine Mesh pants will be far superior in both protection (they have superfabric) and ventilation to the Sand. The Turbines are built to BREATH.

If you guys do primarily warm / hot weather riding go turbine - you can always add the liner / an extra layer to cut the airflow and increase the warmth.

This is a good question, I am going to add it to our thread with my answer if you don't mind!

Best,

Anthony

Looking to get a pair of pants for my wife for an upcoming trip.

We'll start in Southern California, ride up to Northern California, and head north as far as we can (Vancouver?) before heading east and riding cross-Canada back to Toronto. This will be for three weeks in July.

My wife needs something suitable for all weather conditions encountered, and must be waterproof, not to mention stylish.

She likes the Turbine pants (lots of mesh). I like the Sand pants (cheaper!). What do you all think? With the mesh pants be warm enough for the Pacific Northwest? Will the Sand pants be too hot for Southern California?

Thanks in advance.

--- Dennis

2010 Dual Sport & Enduro Helmet Guide

I get asked all the time of the difference between the handful of Hybrid / ADV Riding Styled Helmets that we carry at RevZilla. Enough so, that I thought it prudent to line up our most popular options in front of the camera and give a detailed run-down of RevZilla's Dual Sport Helmets.

For details, please see this video in HD from RevZillaTV.



The Video features the 5 following helmets:

AFX FX-37 Helmet: $103
Joe Rocket Hybrid DS Helmet: $145
Icon Variant Helmet: $350
Shoei Hornet DS Helmet: $437
Arai XD-3 Helmet: $512

Any questions on any of these are more than welcome. I have ridden in both the Shoei and Arai. I own a Motard Black XD-3.

Best,

Anthony

REV'IT! Armor and Protection Guide Video.

We were asked recently to break down the REV'IT! Armor across the full line and explain the differences for the 6000th time - ding ding - time for a video.

If you were ever wondering the difference between the levels of protection that REV'IT! uses and the "why" behind them in different applications, this is the video to watch.



As always, any and all feedback is very welcomed.

Anthony

Dirt Gloves

The DIRT gloves are WAAAY comfortable - IMHO the prefect balance between protection, comfort and ventilation. Exactly what I was looking for in a summer glove. It's no wonder they're in short supply. THANKS!

I agree Ken, IMO the REV'IT! Dirt Gloves have gotten far less credit and attention than they probably should have to date.

I just got a Turbine jacket here in Japan and it came with the liner.

But it jacks up the price something awful.

Basically, the jacket in Japan with the liner is about 75% more expensive than the US price without the liner. Part of the price hike is because of the weak dollar vs. the strong yen, and part of it is people in Japan get screwed on non-Japanese products all the time. But part of it is also the liner.

Next time I'm ordering from you guys. Do you ship to Japan?

I bought a revit sand jacket and pants

Only i think i need to go back to get a size smaller pants.

im about 6"0 and 77KG i got the jacket in M which has a nice snug fit with and without the liner. But i took a XL pant. I was in a hurry and tried the L and XL with all the liners in and thought in the shop that the L was to small around the waist but i was wearing pants with a belt and had all kinds of stuff in my pockets.

Now back at home trying the XL without the liner on and i noticed that i have to tighten the adjuster up to max and that the knee armor is just a bit to low. This especially shows when i wear my sidi crossfires with the pants cos then the knee armor standsup in a ridiculous way on the edge of the sidi's . Should i go back and get a L?
