It’s getting cold in Philadelphia. That sort of happens this time of year. Ugh. However, according to this internet thing, it is 83 degrees and sunny in Orlando, FL right now. Maybe that’s why the American International Motorcycle Expo chooses to set up shop there every year, and may also be why REV’IT! is showcasing its newest hot-weather jackets to the public today.
The first warm-weather jacket on the docket is the reimagined REV’IT! Airwave 2 jacket. Now, for anyone who has scoped a mesh jacket in the past few years, that name should sound incredibly familiar. Like, exactly the same as jacket that you have seen before, minus the denotation of the “2” at the end, that part is definitely new. The reasoning is that the Airwave that REVIT initially introduced to the world was without question one of the best jackets in terms of functionality and value on the market. It was super light, super lean, and totally built to move air throughout. It did what it did and didn’t try to be something that it wasn’t. That is the sign of a well-crafted, focused, and confident piece of gear. The new REVIT Airwave 2 will undoubtedly do be of the same ilk.
Next on the list is something completely new and comes to the game like a ninja of virtue in a thunderous storm of “KA-POW!” It is the REV’IT! Akira Air Jacket, and in case that introductory sentence didn’t make it abundantly clear, we are fans! While hard facts on the Akira haven’t been made readily available yet, one look at this leather beast is all it takes to see the sleek lines, aggressive styling, and total precision of purpose. And for the riders living up here in the north like we are at RevZilla HQ, not to worry… summer is coming!
With so much going on at the AIMExpo right now, our gear gurus are on the ground in Orlando reporting all of the best new information back to us, and in turn, we are making it available to you as soon as possible. We will keep at it throughout today, so stay tuned for more!
Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
Enjoy the ride,
