REV'IT! Raven Jacket, Pants & Gloves Review

The successor to the REV'IT! Allure Jacket and REV'IT! Marryl Pants, the brand new for Spring 2011 REV'IT! Raven Jacket and REV'IT! Raven Pants is the most aggressive women's-specific sport, street and track riding outfit in the REV'IT! line. Also brand new are the REV'IT! Raven Gloves, race-level gauntlets touting many of the same features as REV'IT! pro-level gloves.

Starting off, check out our REV'IT! Raven Jacket and Raven Pants Review:



Built to the curves and contours of a woman's shape, the REV'IT! Raven outfit is essentially a two-piece race suit that is designed by female riders for female riders. From the line of the outfit to the ladies-specific ProLife CE rated armor in the shoulders, elbows and knees, the entire garment suits a woman's outfitting needs to a tee. The shell is constructed of premium 1.2-1.4mm cowhide for exceptional abrasion resistance and has PWRShell 500D stretch fabric in the inner arms, along the torso, and in the crotch and inner legs, and down the backs of the calves for stretch, comfort and mobility. In addition to the aforementioned CE rated armor, there is a foam back pad that can be upgraded to CE level protection, and REV'IT!'s replaceable race-level dual compound knee sliders. The entire outfit is also safety stitched for tear resistance, and features double leather reinforcements in all impact areas.

Elasticated stretch panels above the elbows and knees allow for added mobility when in the tuck position, offering the highest level of ergonomics. There is adjustability in the waist of the jacket and the waist of the pants for the snuggest fit and there are 360 zips on both garments for full connectivity and track legality. As we've seen in a lot of REV'IT! product lately, the cuffs and collar feature moisture wicking neoprene comfort fabric to keep you cool and dry in aggressive and active riding conditions. The jacket also features slit pockets at the front for street riding when you need storage, an inner pocket for valuables, and a removable quilted thermal vest liner to warm you up with the mercury drops. The newest REV'IT! gear for aggressive track riding females looks great and will perform off the charts on the race track.


Next is our REV'IT! Raven Gloves Review:



Built for the highest degrees of comfort, performance and protection for the female track rider, the REV'IT! Raven Glove delivers on all fronts. A full cowhide and goatskin construction, protective elements like the leather-coated hard shell main knuckle protector and PU injected finger knuckles are spin-offs of REV'IT! race glove protection. Other armor, like the dual comp palm slider and TPU hard shell little finger protector, both designed for impact and abrasion resistance, are direct derivations from REV'IT! pro-level gloves. Strategic perforation and punctuation will keep your hand cool in active riding conditions while the externally stitched and pre-curved finger construction prevents any pressure points or fatigue that may result from
discomfort. At the palm, a Schoeller-Keprotec panel begins at the upper palm and wraps onto the inner thumb for resistance to wear in the high-use zones. There is also leather reinforcement at the palm with vibration dampening foam at the heel of the hand. The elastic at the wrist is complemented by a velcro adjuster strap that is protected by a leather panel and provides the snuggest and safest fit around the wrist. There are elasticated panels in the Raven Gloves on the fingers and at the backhand to allow for ease of motion and also to let the armor move with the glove when you're actively working the controls. The single velcro cuff closure is designed to be worn either inside or outside of the jacket depending on your preference.

Put this whole outfit together and you're ready for the most aggressive track days. REV'IT! delivers once more with a protective and performance outfit that doesn't sacrifice style.
