Although we're getting hit with this "bomb cyclone" here in Philly today, many of us are daydreaming of Spring riding and the gear launches that are sure to follow. As usual, REV'IT! does not disappoint with the roll-out of their newest leather jackets, including the REV'IT! Nova Jacket, which is new for Spring 2018.
Taking style cues from the super popular REV'IT! Flatbush and REV'IT! Gibson Jackets, the REV'IT! Nova follows that classic Cruiser style, with a band of color across the chest to set it apart from the rest. Available in Black leather with 3 color block options (White, Green, or Blue) and a stellar option of two-tone Blue leather, this jacket is sure to appeal to quite a few riders. While this jacket does not have any venting, it does come with a full-sleeve detachable thermal liner, making it ideal for riders hitting the road just as the grass is starting to peek out from underneath the snow. Our brothers in California (and other moderate climates) could definitely rock this jacket year-round, but I can see this jacket going back on the hanger once the temps start climbing above 70. That still gives you plenty of time to break in the Rub Off cowhide leather to get that beautifully worn-in vintage look this jacket is just screaming for.
The REV'IT! Nova jacket comes stock with Seesmart CE Level 1 armor in the elbows and shoulders, and a pocket for the optional Seesoft CE Level 2 back protector (sold separately). Aside from the standard zip-up handwarmer pockets, you've got a handy document pocket on the left sleeve to stash your ID and some cash for convenient access. The short connection zipper on the inside of the jacket, along with the jeans loops, makes it easy to pair this jacket with the many armored riding jeans that REV'IT! has to offer.
Overall, REV'IT! always does a great job of catering to many different segments with one piece of gear, and I think the REV'IT! Nova Jacket is no exception. If you ask me, that two-tone Blue leather is the real show-stopper in this new release! Ride safe, and stay warm! Pants
Riding conditions might not be ideal for most of us right now, but the Spring will soon be upon us. I know it's hard to imagine with all of these snow covered cars, but fear not, there is light at the end of the tunnel. With the warmer season slowly approaching, REV’IT! has been hard at work. Coming to us this spring, we have the REV’IT! Vertex GT Jacket. This jackets outer shell consist of Monaco Performance Cowhide combined with Lorica and stretch for a comfortable fit. The Vertex GT will also come equipped with a detachable thermal which should help you push this jacket into those colder morning rides. CE Level 2 armor in the shoulders and elbows and as always, the jacket is ready to be equipped with REV’IT!’s Seesoft CE Level 2 back protector. The jacket is also equipped with a few pockets, a small amount of perforation, and it will come with a short and long connection zipper to accommodate a pair of REV’IT! Pants.
Try to stay warm out there, Spring will be here before we know it. For now, I would keep your peepers peeled for the REV’IT! Vertex GT Jacket as I am certain this will be another juggernaut option in the REV’IT! lineup. Keep on keep’n on, B-Wise
The Revit Safari jacket is finally coming to the US with the new 3rd generation this March. The Safari 3 is a worthy successor to the Europe-only Safari 2 jacket, boasting similar features with a few key changes. Occupying a niche between the Enterprise and the Outback 2, the REV'IT! Safari 3 Jacket has upgraded CE 2 SeeFlex armor and a pocket for the SeeSoft CE level 2 back protector. With four colorways of 600D polyester and the regular Revit fit with a detachable thermal liner, this jacket is great for Autumn through Spring use. The Safari is a lighter weight option for riders that feel encumbered in the Outback 2, and want higher-level armor protection.
The Safari 3 is the newest in Revit’s jacket lineup, filling a niche previously only available in Europe, giving Mild-to-Cold weather riders a great new waterproof jacket option. Colin
Keeping up with REV'IT!’s ongoing foray into the street casual segment, the REV'IT Traction Jacket is half summer vacation, half letterman jacket, and all class.
The Traction is a solid mesh jacket with removable Hydratex liner, so whether you are cruising to the beach, or away from the storm, you’re sure to get an A in coolness. The collar and cuffs are made of a soft knit material for extreme comfort on those hot days.
Borrowing notes from the Akira Air jackets, the Traction sports the REV'IT! TPU protectors on the shoulders for that undeniably race-inspired look. Don’t be fooled, this jacket is more than a pretty face-- it’s got CE level protection in the shoulders and elbows, and room for the CE2 Seesoft back protector so you can make Ma proud, and look good doing it.
All in all, the Traction is a great hot-weather option for the style-conscious casual rider, and we’re glad to see Rev’It making waves in that market. Hannah
Up for Spring 2018, and new for all of you, is the REV'IT! Vertex Air Jacket. This super slick piece of hot weather kit is bringing the REV'IT! leather jacket style into a better breathing mesh jacket chassis.
This race fit mesh jacket accepts the Challenger Cooling Vest Insert, for really keeping that core temperature down. On the backside is an 8" connection zipper to attach to your REV'IT! pants and a jeans loop in case you're a denim pant fan. Also on the backside of the jacket is a pocket for a CE Level 2 back protector insert, in typical REV'IT! fashion.
What is not typical of this jacket are the hard exterior shoulder protectors. Normally seen high-end leather race jackets and race suits, this brings an awesome extra dose of style and the benefit of added protection for that ever vulnerable shoulder seam.
Style-wise, this jacket is a home run! It will be right a home from sportbikes, naked standard bikes, and even sportier leaning sport-touring machines. Get one now while half the country is still running their snow plows and you'll be ready for summer when the riding is funner. E.
As an update to the original Vapor Jacket, the REV'IT! Vapor 2 Jacket now includes a few key changes that get us excited while retaining the main DNA which made us fall in love with the original in the first place.
The main difference that REV'IT! has made with its newest iteration of the Vapor is increased protection in the form of better armor. Now coming standard with Seeflex CE level 2 armor in the shoulders and elbows, the protection we used to only see on the highest end REV'IT! jackets and pants has now made its way into a jacket at the $400 price point.
With a few other changes like an update from using dobby fabric, to now using ripstop across the chest as well as some new colorways, the Vapor 2 remains largely unchanged. Staying is the detachable thermal liner, Hydratex waterproofing, near endless adjustability and the aggressive sporty fit that made the original Vapor a go-to cold weather option for sport-touring riders.
When it comes down to it, while the Vapor 2 is not a huge update, REV'IT! has made the largest change in arguably the most important area to riders-- protection. This additional level of protection is something we are not seeing from too many manufacturers in a three-season cold weather sport-touring jacket, which continues to make the Vapor 2 Jacket a go-to option.

Even though the winter weather can make the next riding season seem so far away, REV'IT! is unveiling their upcoming apparel to help navigate riders through the spring and summer months that will be approaching before you know it.
REV'IT's Torque Jacket will line up right next to their existing summer mesh/textile jackets such as the Airwave 2 or the Tornado 2. The Torque Jacket will provide very similar mesh paneling in order to achieve maximum airflow while still providing great protection in all the right areas, such as the elbows and shoulders.
The REV'IT! Torque Jacket is also prepared for their Seesoft CE level 2 back protector and is offered in much more subtle colorway variations that include colors such as black, grey, and army green.
So, as the riding season begins to take shape, be sure that you can handle the summer heat with ease and style by riding with REV'IT's new Torque Jacket. Luke
The REV'IT! Jerez 3 Gloves are the successor to their top of the line race glove, the Jerez Pro. Overall, we are not seeing REV’IT! make any major changes in regards to construction. They are still giving us a kangaroo and goatskin glove with a bevy of hard TPU protection covering the knuckles, little finger and palm all worthy of keeping the top level MotoGP riders safe.
While there will be four new colorways to choose from the REV'IT! Jerez 3 Gloves are largely unchanged will continue to be a staple atop their sport/race glove line up. Derek
REV’IT! plans to release the REV'IT! Ignition 3 Jacket spring of 2018. Updates for the 3rd remix of the Ignition jacket will include a new look and Seeflex CE level 2 armor stitched to the outer shell of the jacket instead of the mesh liner. The benefit to you is greater impact protection while insuring the armor stays in the right place. The same Dynax mesh and Monaco Performance cowhide still make up the shell of the jacket which provides great abrasion protection and breathability. No changes have been made to the guts of the Ignition 3. The removable thermal liner and removable waterproof liner are carried over from the Ignition 2, which makes it a true 3-4 season jacket. Ben
There is a big difference in getting there, and getting there in style. If you ride a motorcycle, you care about both. Don’t fool yourself into thinking otherwise. If your style happens to be casual and cool, then one of the new shirts from REV’IT! might just tickle your fancy. For fans of the denim button down look, the REV’IT! Crosby Riding Shirt is going to be worth a long hard look. Constructed from 12.5oz Cordura denim with CoolMax element, the Crosby fits in well with both the fashion and motorcycle crowds alike. Underneath, riders get the added benefit of Seesmart CE Level 1 protection at the shoulders and elbows. Additional features include double-layered PWR|shield in the high-impact areas, ventilation panel for increased airflow, and mechanical stretch for increased comfort.
If you happen to prefer the ninja, stealthy nighttime in the city look, the REV’IT! Yates Sweater will likely be more your style. Designed as a motorcycle pullover that has a bit more protection than your average equivalent from Banana Republic, the Yates motorcycle sweater brings together a sleek profile with features such as Seesmart CE Level 1 protection, as well as a pocket for an optional (and sold separately) Seesoft CE Level 2 back protector. Additional features include laminated reflectivity, PWR|knit, ripstop, and rib knit construction, and a regular, city fit.
On the bike or off. For the ride or the stride. REV’IT!’s latest motorcycle shirts offer increased motorcycle specificity while retaining much of the style that matters so much.
Have fun out there, be safe, and as always… Enjoy the ride, Juice
