REV'IT! Phantom GTX Gloves Review

Designed to provide the highest level of protection from the worst of the elements, the brand new REV'IT! Phantom GTX Gloves will perform extraordinarily in Spring-Summer-Fall sport and adventure riding. REV'IT!'s teaming with Gore-Tex for their Fall 2010 line of gear was immensely popular across the board, and we think that this brand new glove will have the same impact in the riding community. Any time you can add the highest degree of waterproofing and breathability to the level of quality and engineering of a brand like REV'IT!, only good things come out of it.

Check out our REV'IT! Phantom GTX Gloves Review:



The REV'IT! Phantom GTX Gloves are a full goatskin outer shell for superb abrasion resistance, tactility, and lightweight construction. The entirety of the glove gets a WR finish, which gives the exterior water resistant properties that work in conjunction with the Gore-Tex membrane to keep the hand dry and comfortable at all times. The Gore-Tex X-trafit membrane is bonded to the outershell of the glove, which keeps the liner in place, ensuring the your hand will never pull out the liner with it when you take off the glove and that there is no chance of your hand getting wet even when it's downpouring outside. The palm of the Phantoms has multiple zones of goatskin reinforcemen, a Sure Grip panel across the upper palm and
inner thumb for resistance to wear in high-use areas, and EVA foam at the heel of the hand for vibration dampening. On the outside of the palm there is a dual comp palm slider, derived from REV'IT! race gloves, that will keep the side of the hand protected from impact but also allow the glove to slide in the event of a get-off. This works in conjunction with the goatskin reinforcements that wrap around the side of the hand and little finger for superior abrasion resistance. A TPU hard shell little finger protector acts in the same manner, allowing the hand to slide in the event of a crash. The PU injected finger knuckles and hard part main knuckle armor are all leather coated to maintain the sleek design of these gloves.

The Phantom GTX Gloves have elasticated panels at the backhand and mid-digitally to allow for proper movement and let the armor move with the hand when you're working the controls. There is laminated reflective paneling at the tips of the first two fingers, at the backhand, and at the outside of each wrist for maximum visibility. Rounding out, you've got elastication at the wrist alongside a velcro adjuster for a snug fit, and a single velcro cuff closure that is large enough to be worn outside the jacket but can be tightened and worn inside of the jacket if desired. Overall, REV'IT! has produced yet another winner for the sport and adventure riding community.
