Rev’it GTX Gloves

The Rev’it Bastion GTX gloves represent the top-of-the-line for Fall/Winter 2010. These are the highest-tech gloves I’ve ever seen, incorporating Schoeller Dynamic and Nanosphere fabrics; goat hide with a water-resistant coating and 1000 denier Cordura rip-stop with a Teflon coating.

Superfabric is used over the knuckles for abrasion protection and, yes, the Bastion GTX gloves even have some leather, but with a water-resistant coating.

The insulation used in the Bastion GTX gloves is Thermolite Plus (also used in the Cayenne Pro), which is used because it’s thin but warm.

The gloves also have a tri-fleece moisture wicking liner and the gloves also have a Gore-Tex membrane of course. The Bastion GTX gloves are designed to be very soft and flexible, while providing strong abrasion resistance with the Superfabric with minimal use of hard knuckle protectors. The gloves also include a built-in visor wiper and a water-resistant zipper to close the gauntlet.

The Bastion GTX gloves use a textile outer shell to minimize the amount of water absorption. A leather glove will absorb more water and can take a very long time to dry, so riders on multiple-day tours in rainy weather need to make sure that the gloves will be dry the next day. The coated textiles used in the Bastion GTX gloves is designed to shed as much water as possible.

The Alaska gloves are well known to the webBikeWorld readers who were also members of the Rev’it Gore-Tex Test Team. Something like 60 pairs of gloves were sent out to Test Team riders (more) and each glove had a different combination of fabrics and features. The Test Team riders provided lots of feedback, which was incorporated into the final design. I have a series of photos below showing the improved gloves with the Test Team feedback.

The Orion GTX gloves are also new. They feature the new 1000 denier rip-stop Cordura with Teflon coating, along with the water-resistant goat skin and wax treated Cordura. The Orion GTX gloves have a Gore-Tex breathable membrane also.

Several other gloves will be released in the Rev’it Fall/Winter 2010 lineup, but I was only able to see the few mentioned hee.
