REV’IT! Women’s Adventure Team started out a few years back as an initiative to encourage more female riders to venture off-road. And it seems the effort has paid off: every year, REV’IT! releases a Rider Spotlight video featuring a member of the ever-growing women’s team.
This time, it’s Kris Fant, a mental health counselor, rider, and contributing editor of Women ADV Riders. Kris and her husband Nathan live in Oregon, and during the pandemic, the couple has rediscovered their own state on two wheels. “You have everything here – from easy gravel roads to gnarly single track. It’s so diverse, and so much fun – exploring Oregon has been a surprising treat”, she said.
Both Kris and Nathan are BDR ambassadors, having covered countless dirt miles on the Utah, Washington, and California BDR tracks. For Kris, motorcycling allows her to feel free and authentic. “I love off-road riding because it takes all of my attention and focus and I can let everything that happened during the week just fall away. I absolutely love being on the REV’IT! Women’s Adventure Team – I get to impact the nationwide and even worldwide community”, Kris shared.
According to REV’IT!, “As the REV’IT! Women’s Adventure Team proves time and time again, the spirit of motorcycle exploration knows no bounds. Scattered across the country, all with their own individual styles and approaches to adventure riding, each team member found ways to scratch that wanderlust itch in such an abnormal time, in their own unique way. Each episode of the REV’IT! Women’s Team #WeADV video series not only focuses on a different rider but it is also shot and produced by different creatives local to their area”.
