    Just keep doing what you guys are doing. Great customer experience and service. Most shops don't know what they sell and how to fit a customer.

    I am about to rebuild my glove portfolio/

    I have the r59's great glove. So im thinking of 2 pair from revit to cover my needs.

    1. A pair of comet's to replace the r59's. I wear these for the best of the season.

    2. Something for 40-70 degree's. I put the bike away for st. louis winters.3 months. I can wear silks underneath. IM thinking waterproof, but I want that revit "fit" for feel and control. I have heated grips.

    Unix? or h20 ??

    I am giving serious thought to Revitt gear. I'm between the cayenne pro jacket and the navigator.

    i like the looks of the navigator a bit better

    what pants go with the Navigator and do they zip to the jacket ?

    Does the SAS-Tec ce back protector fit the navigator without trimming ?

    Hi Jim,

    Thanks for shooting us a line.

    Out of the gates the REV'IT! Comet is a flat out winner, especially if you liked the r59. Consider the Comet a very large improvement across the board from a composition standpoint.

    For your cooler season glove, your heated grips actually give you the ability to go in a few directions in that 40-70 range. Also if you have handguards you have even more flexibility.

    A lot of times with heated grips we hear folks have the complaint of the toasty palm with a painfully cold back of the hand. REV'IT! sews in a layer of material called PCM in two of their gloves which regulates distributes warmth from warm parts of the glove to cooler parts. With heated grips this gives you the best chance to have a more consistent temperature throughout. The new for 2009 Kelvin Glove will be the best suited and most sensitive of the two. You would be comfortable in the Kelvin up until the low 60's depending on your preference. From there you can always go back tot the Comet. The Kelvin is a fully wind and waterproof gauntlet.

    The other option I would recommend would be the Zenith H20 Glove. It is also a completely waterproof breathable gauntlet but it is meant for a warmer range of temperatures. Your heated grips could bridge that gap though. The Zenith has the REV'IT! lightweight tri-fleece liner and will be more sensitive on the controls than the Kelvin.

    The Unix H20 Glove is true winter riding and will be bulkier than the two aforementioned gloves.

    I know there is a lot here. Give us a ring, I would be happy to clarify any of this or talk further if you want.

    Best,

    Anthony

    Hey Prometheus,

    The Navigator was created to be a more muted and universally styled option.

    Any current model REV'IT! pant will zip to the Navigator. The Cayenne Pro, Turbine or Dakar are all great options. The Dakars actually just went on special.

    The SAS-TEC back protector fits without trimming.

    Shoot me a line with anything else you need.

    Anthony

    Apologies in advance if my question has already been asked and answered.

    I was at a local dealer today trying on Sirocco, the tag on the jacket that fit me best indicated XYL, the salesperson said this was XXL....is this correct? Just want to double check before I make any on line purchase.

    Thanks

    That is actually incorrect. An XXL will be labeled XXL. A jacket labeled XYL would be the equivalent of a 3XL, and an item labeled XZL would be the equivalent of a 4XL.

    So if ordering online, you want to specify 3XL or XYL (some retailers will say XYL, and some like us try to avoid the confusion by saying 3XL)

    thanks for the quick response, maybe he did say 3XL, but I guess my mind heard 2XL, even with Rev'it running a size larger, I never considered myself even a XXL, let alone a XXX.....glad I checked....thanks again

    We regularly get the question of SAS-TEC hip pads and what REV'IT! pants they will fit.

    The answer is simple.

    The SAS-TEC hip pads are triangular while the standard hip pads are more of a kidney shape. The SAS-TEC pads are available for the REV'IT Cayenne Pro Pants as well as the REV'IT Infinity Suit.

    Please see a shot of the SAS-TEC hip vs a standard hip.

    We'll see what changes REV'IT! makes in the future but for now other pants are not suited for the SAS-TEC hip pads.

    As always questions and comments are welcome on this thread.

    I respectfully disagree about the hip armor.

    The BMW NP hip armor is practically the same size as the SAS-Tec, and it will fit in the armor pocket of my Rev'it! Classic leather pants. I lose some coverage area at the top because the NP armor piece isn't as tall.

    But, even in the skin-tight Classic leather pants there is enough room in that armor pocket for both the temperfoam and the NP if I wanted.

    The REVIT Dragon Jacket is a great choice especially if you are just getting into the sport. It will perform all year and under almost all conditions.

    We (quickly) took some shots of the Hi-Vis Option in the Studio recently.

    Is that the same jacket that I saw reviewed in webbikeworld??????????

    I never considered buying it because it didn't look like corresponding to my body type.
    The photo above is great and corresponds to my shape (6"3, 190 lbs.).

    I'll give a try around the fall.

    very nice jacket

    Hi Anthony, I'd like a pair of riding pants. Ideally, they would be suitable for summer and winter (removable liner?). Do you have anything like this? In the event it matters, I'm 5'4".

    Thanks,
    Amy

    Hi Amy,

    There are a range of options you could go with. One of the best values we have right now would be the REV'IT! Dakar pants which are a very high-end pant suited for all season / all weather riding. They are on sale for $259.99, which is down from $319.99. They also come in a light color and have two removable liners, one for wind/water the other is thermal. The Dakar's have ventilation Zips as well. These pants will last for a very long time and the materials used are nothing short of superb. There is really only one pant better than the Dakar in the REV'IT! lineup for all-season riding - the Cayenne Pro - which could be overkill depending on your needs.

    REV'IT Dakar Pant

    The pants are a unisex size. The two key measurements are going to be your inseam (same as jeans) and then your waist which is DIFFERENT than jeans size. Its the circumference around your waist but its taken at the level of your navel. Feel free to call me for any help. Click here for the REV'IT Pant Size chart

    Let me know what you think of the Dakars - by far the best deal. The Womens Factor Pants or Unisex Cayenne Pro Pants would work as well depending on your needs.

    We think REV'IT! is the best quality gear we carry, but if you wanted to talk about any other brands and options we could do that as well. Olympia, Tour Master and FirstGear all make a more medium priced pant which could fit the bill.

    Let me know what you think, Amy! Happy to help.

    Anthony

    For those who subscribe to our thread I wanted to make sure the current sale did not miss their radar.

    Since last Friday a ton of current REV'IT! has gone 25% off.

    We actually made a separate post about it here in vendors and list all of the product. As always, questions welcome.

    ADV REV'IT! Mega Sale Post

    In our opinion the Sirocco, Offtrack, Dakar and Navigator are the biggest wins..

    They all live in the clearance section on RevZilla.com as well and qualify for TeamZilla Cash back,Free Shipping as well as a 30 day exchange/return window (we allow returns/exchanges on REV'IT and Dainese closeouts).

    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!
