REV'IT! Orion GTX Gloves- GORE-TEX Touring/Commuting Glove

With the serious touring rider and long-time commuter in mind, REVIT! developed its newest winter motorcycle glove. The REV'IT! Orion GTX glove provides an excellent balance between rider comfort and protection, incorporating the GORE-TEX waterproof breathable membrane combined with REV'IT's constant attention to detail and commitment to the highest-quality materials.


Built on a chassis of 500D PWRShell with Teflon-coated 1000D ripstop Cordura reinforcements and water repellent goatskin & suede leather, the REVIT! Orion GTX ensures that your hand stays protected. The main knuckle protection is EVA foam, with PU injected reinforcements in the finger knuckles and foam injections at the palm and thumb. It is lightweight and extremely abrasion-resistant with excellent tear resistance provided by the ripstop fabric. There is also Schoeller Keptrotec built underneath the goatskin palm that provides stretch and comfort while the goatskin offers superior abrasion resistance and tactile feel.



For waterproofing and breathability, the integrated GORE-TEX membrane has you covered: your hands will be dry and comfortable no matter the weather as the membrane fends off incoming precipitation but allows perspiration from your hand to pass through. Couple that with the Thermolite push-pull tri-fleece liner and your riding not only protected but in a great deal of comfort as well.


As always, the creature comforts make their way into the REV'IT Orion GTX gloves; REVIT never leaves those out. You have 3M scotchlite reflective at the cuff and fingers for visibility; an adjustment strap at the wrist with an adjustment tab at the cuff; stretch paneling at the back of the hand to keep the glove in place and keep you comfortable when you're working the controls; digital grip patches on the index finger and the webbing of the hand for enhanced grip and control; and finally, our favorite, the visor wiper on the left index finger to easily clean your shield at any point in your ride.

The REVIT Orion GTX gloves are the ideal glove for the serious commuter or experienced touring rider. You may also be interested in checking out the more beefed-up REV'IT! Bastion GTX Gloves.
