With the Spring riding season coming up, we have been getting a lot of calls about comparing race suits. Based on the questions we are getting it makes sense for us to provide some overviews of key race suit brands that we carry in the hopes of educating anyone looking for more information on race suits. This post is about REV'IT!
Last year Randy de Puniet wore the REV'IT! TT Race Suit in the 2009 MotoGP season - and crashed in it - a lot. For those of you new to REV'IT! They do a ton of R&D and are continually improving their product. REV'IT! makes three high end Race suits, the REV'IT! Victory, REV'IT! TT & REV'IT! CR Suit. In our opinion they offer a ton of bang for the buck. REV'IT! also makes a few model of track worthy gloves, the REV'IT! Jerez Glove, REV'IT! GT Corse & REV'IT! SLR Glove. Most people that know of REV'IT! know that their leathers are pretty solid. Most of our staff ride in TT suits on track days at this point.
The suits are structured good, better, best with best to be worn by Randy de Puniet and Alvaro Bautista in MotoGP in 2010. The TT suit was the top end in 2009 and they improved on it with the Victory in 2010 - so the pros will be wearing that one this season. Nate Kern riding the new BMW S100RR is also sponsored by REV'IT! in 2010 and will be rocking the Victory in the staple Red, White and Blue color scheme to match the RR.
We have an overview video detailing the common features of the race suits as well as the differences between the models as you go up in features and price. Check it out below.
I could tech you all to death by breaking the models out, but the overview video speaks for itself.
This post is meant to get some good information out there and inform riders about another mid- to high-end motorcycle race suit options. Please don't hesitate to critique or ask questions about any of the REV'IT! Race Suits or other gear. Any and all feedback is welcome. Feel free to visit the REV'IT! Facebook page to join the discussion as well.
Two Wheels Down,
