Cayenne Pro . . . summer jacket?

Anyone find it a bit weird that Rev'It seems to have repositioned the Cayenne Pro in their lineup? Although the world could always use one more tough mesh jacket.

though it might seem less than obvious, just because a jacket has mesh panels doesn't necessarily mean it will flow a ton of air.



(it might flow more air than a full textile jacket but not enough air to truly cool.)

i have no experience with this jacket.

i'm just saying.

ymmv

be well.

I really wish they offered a waterproof liner for the new Cayenne. It would be the ideal yearround jacket for the southwest if it did. Sadly it seems like it's just a 2-3 season fair weather riding jacket.

Yeah. I had a turbine briefly. What a nice well made jacket! Unless you rode in it in the heat. It literally flowed zero air, even with the mesh panels. It was bizarre.

I had a Cayenne Pro and I loved it in the summer in Los Angeles. The sleeve vents worked great and the chest vents flowed big time. I only sold it cause I got tired of putting the two liners in and out. They were a real pain. It was my only jacket.
