Infinity Suit Announced for U.S. Market
The folks at REV'IT! are always hard at work,
updating and releasing new products about as fast as
anyone in the industry. They usually have some
interesting new motorcycle clothing announcements at the
Indy show and this year was no exception.
You really need to ask your dealer to let you look at the
REV'IT! catalog. It's amazing, with high quality photos and it
demonstrates the huge selection of REV'IT! motorcycle products, covering
everything from windproof underwear to rainsuits to leathers and, of course,
jackets, pants, boots and gloves. You could open up any page with your
eyes closed and I'll guarantee you'll want what you see.
Well, the catalog costs a whopping 20 Euros each to produce
-- about $30.00 U.S., so REV'IT! is putting the
entire catalog online
in a very unique format. The pages actually turn and the photos and
information are exactly like the paper catalog, so you won't miss a thing.
If you have a widescreen laptop or monitor, you'll really get the full
In fact, it looks like 2007 will be a huge year for REV'IT!,
with several new and unique products that will be announced, including the
ground-breaking Infinity one-piece, which looks like it will definitely
advance the state-of-the-art in one-piece textile motorcycle riding suits.
The Infinity one-piece suit has so many new features I don't
know where to start. The REV'IT! staff talked me through it and we'll
run one through an in-depth review as soon as it becomes available in May.
REV'IT! is also updating their top-of-the-line racing glove,
the GT Corse. This glove will have a unique ceramic impregnated fabric
called SuperFabric, which will provide much better sliding properties but
will also insulate against heat buildup during the slide and, of course,
As far as we know, this is the first application of this new
type of fabric in a motorcycle glove -- the stuff is very expensive, so at
this point it will probably only show up in the ultra racing glove but
hopefully we'll see it in more of the REV'IT! glove lineup soon.
REV'IT! Infinity One-Piece Textile Motorcycle Suit
The new Infinity suit has been in development for a couple of years and
we've been anxiously waiting to obtain one for a review. The suit has
been released in Europe but licensing agreements prevent sales in the U.S.A.
There are a few modifications, upgrades and improvements also being made for
the U.S. market and the suit should be ready for its May 2007 release date.
The Infinity suit was designed to be the ultimate one-piece
textile motorcycle riding suit. It's claimed to be completely,
absolutely and positively 100% waterproof, but it uses the highest-tech
fabrics and it incorporates several vents to ensure breathability.
"We wanted a spare no expense, absolute best, top of the
line oversuit that no one would ever have anything to say about other than
it's the best thing out there", said Jordan Levitt, Director of Operations
for the U.S. REV'IT! organization.
It's also designed to be ultra-safe, with features like the
new SAS-TEC armor, which includes a CE-approved Level 2 back protector in
addition to CE-approved SAS-TEC shoulder, elbow and hip armor.
The first thing you notice about the suit is the incredible
laser-cut fabric sections, the minimal number of seams and the flush-fit
welded zippers and reflective material. This gives the suit a very
sleek look and also makes it safer, with a minimum number of protrusions
that could catch and grab in the case of a fall.
The Infinity suit is constructed entirely from Schoeller
three-layer Dynotec abrasion-resistant climate change material. This material
is exclusive to the Infinity and it includes a laminated Hydralite breathable, waterproof and windproof
membrane that responds to the heat and cold by helping to keep the rider
cooler or warmer.
And -- get this -- the outer material uses the
super-high-tech Schoeller NanoSphere technology finish. The fabric
threads are impregnated with a special nanotechnology finish that, it is
claimed, "makes it virtually impossible for dirt or water to affix to the
material, resulting in a garment that will stay clean and dry under all
circumstances". Can't wait to give that a try!
The suit is cut with a slightly fitted profile, which is
designed to fit over clothing or thermal underwear. Of course, REV'IT!
has a huge selection of both in their catalog, and I can definitely envision
wearing the Infinity suit over a set of nice 'n' comfy fleece undies.
The full length, top-to-bottom front zipper was specially
designed to be waterproof but to also allow ease of entry and exit. It
actually has two sets of teeth running in parallel with a gasket in between,
but the zipper works as easily as any I've tried. It's claimed to be
The suit will be available in a wide range of sizes, from
Small to XXL in Standard, Short and Long fits. It's available in the
nice-looking grey color shown below, or black. It incorporates acres
of flush-fitted Scotchlite reflective tape.
The interior lining of the Infinity suit is a sight to
behold, with welded and flush seams everywhere. Flex panels are
incorporated into any stretch areas. All of the pockets are attached
separately to minimize the number of stitches poking through the fabric.
Three of the suit's many pockets are waterproof and there's an entry for an
The suit has direct ventilation on the chest and back.
The outside wear areas are specially covered for abrasion and wear
All of this high-tech won't come cheap -- it takes 20 days
to make a single suit! But if you're
looking for the ultimate, go-anywhere in any condition one-piece riding
suit, this looks like it. Very impressive! We'll get one for a
full-length review as soon as possible.
