REV'IT! Fly Gloves & REV'IT! Curb Gloves Review

Two new sport riding focused summertime gloves are going to be released from REV'IT! in Spring 2011 to complement the immensely popular REV'IT! Monster Gloves. The REV'IT! Fly Gloves provide excellent ventilation and safety features, while the REV'IT! Curb Gloves add upgraded protective elements for summertime rides. Of course, each of these gloves features slick design elements, as REV'IT! never sacrifices on style for the sport rider.

First up is our REV'IT! Fly Gloves Review:



The REV'IT! Fly Gloves feature a full goatskin and PU-coated cowhide exterior construction for the highest levels of abrasion resistance, but it is also fully perforated to flow the maximum amount of air on hot weather rides. The sleek design sets the REV'IT! Fly apart as the PU injected finger knuckle and main knuckle armor are completely leather wrapped to maintain the slick look of the glove. Elasticated stretch panels at the backhand and fingers allow for movement and let the armor move with the hand as you work the controls. The palm features a Schoeller-Keprotec panel that assists in preventing wearing down of the glove and also provides grip. For the price, you won't find many other gloves that feature the REV'IT! Fly Gloves in terms of
features, functionality and style for summertime sport riding.


Next is our REV'IT! Curb Gloves Review:



If you're looking to upgrade the protective elements of the REV'IT! Fly and REV'IT! Monster, the REV'IT! Curb Gloves will be your go-to summertime sport glove. Similar to the Fly, the Curb is a full goatskin and PU-coated cowhide construction. The perforation scheme is significantly scaled back to go along with the beefed-up protection. Both the main knuckle and finger knuckles are carbon fiber for exceptional impact protection, while the outside of the little finger is reinforced with leather and has a TPU hard shell protector. The palm features a dual comp slider, a protective element borrowed from REV'IT! race gloves. The rest of the palm is goatskin with Schoeller-Keprotec
paneling for wear resistance, EVA foam for vibration dampening, and cowhide reinforcements for abrasion resistance. The fingers are externally stitched, race-style, and pre-curved for comfort. There are multiple zones of double stitching throughout the glove for tear resistance and PWR|yarn is used throughout, an extremely high tensile strength thread. These gloves are simply the next level of functionality when it comes to hot weather sport and street riding. We think they're going to be an absolute home run in the sport riding and touring community for their go-to summer glove.
