REV’IT Urban Collection: Fashionably Functional

It’s Friday evening, summertime in the city; you’ve got untold urban adventures of which to partake and two wheels of petrol powered performance to get you there in style. When you have no work tomorrow, no bedtime tonight, and the streetlights guiding your way ahead, you need moto gear that is as ready for the town as you are. With a combined focus on functionality, protection, and casual style, the REV’IT Urban Collection unites a long lineage of technical superiority and innovation with a rejuvenated sense of just what motorcyclists are looking for as they navigate the city streets.

One of the staples of the Urban Collection can be seen in the simply sleek and trimly fit REV'IT! Manzoni Jacket. Some of the intrinsically moto features can be seen in the CE-protectors, reflective back panel, and main zipper tab which is designed to protect against scratches on your tank. It will also come with the ability to take a Seesoft CE-Level 2 back protector insert and will make use of a 3D mesh / mesh panel composition to flow maximum air to the body. At the same time, the design of the Manzoni works to offer utility such as ample pockets both inside and out, as well as a fashionable fit without an aggressive pre-curve.

Moving away from the maximum airflow of the Manzoni, you can also beef up your look with the REV'IT! Hillcrest Jacket. Classically styled out of a 100% cotton shell, the regular fit, relaxed feel, and fashionably detailed Hillcrest jacket will be a hit with the city rider and scooter crowd. Making use of CE-rated armor in the shoulders and elbows the Hillcrest will not be waterproof or offer direct ventilation, but it will make use of a nice 3D mesh and standard mesh inner lining to keep you cool, while also offering additional adjustability with a drawcord at the waist and sturdy waist belt.

Stepping up to the top of the skyline, the REV’IT Windsor Jacket is the product of a design team tasked with developing the jacket that they would wear themselves for a summer ride around the city. With an air-vent system at the chest, removable hoody, and a parka style cut, the Windsor is going to be slightly more robust than the Manzoni or Hillcrest. Intricate features such as the stretch panels at the upper back, heavy cotton and 3D mesh outer shell, and adjustability/removability of the hood itself, this jacket will keep you ready for any occasion.

While it will probably never be on the X-Games or get the hype of MotoGP, urban riding is an event and a challenge all its own. Many of the same features that make gear essential for rallies and the racing circuits can at the same time prove to be major hindrances to the enjoyment of navigating around the city. For times like this, REV’IT has taken special care to design a line that retains the soul of a moto company and at the same time provides a fashion forward option once the forks are locked and the kickstand is down.
