REV’IT! & RawHyde Adventures will team up at the inaugural Overland Expo East to offer adventure riders a rare chance to ride the illusive “Gravel Dragon”, the off-road trek that snakes through the scenic, forested vistas of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park outside of Asheville, North Carolina. The trail’s endless twists and turns mimic its namesake, the world-renowned Tail of the Dragon – but in the most rugged, thrilling way possible.
The ride will leave at 10:00 AM on Friday, October 3rd from the RawHyde tent in the Overland Expo motorcycle pavilion. It will be led by RawHyde guides over paved and unpaved roads, and a light lunch will be served mid-route; riders must have their own bikes and proper protective gear. The ride is estimated to return around 6:00 PM.
REV’IT! and RawHyde have partnered to offer the ride free-of-charge, but space is limited: To sign up, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Embrace the adventure, and take the twisties on your own terms!
Overland Expo is an international event that educates and inspires people to get out and explore the world, by bike and vehicle, with 140+ different classes, 180+ exhibitors, and experts, authors, & videographers from around the world.
REV’IT! traveled to Flagstaff, Arizona over the weekend to rub shoulders with a rugged community of global adventurers and explorers at Overland Expo West. The dusty event, held on the dried bed of Mormon Lake, drew a crowd of roughly 7,000 from around the world. They came by motorcycle, jeep, buggy, RV, bicycle, truck, trailer and even horse — whatever means got them “over land”
The REV’IT! tent featured the company’s most popular adventure products, among them the Sand 2, Sand Ladies and Poseidon suits. Hundreds of expo attendees mapped out their “dream rides” on postcards, as part of a contest to win REV’IT! gear. And heat-adverse riders took liquid cooling vests out for trial runs on the Arizona backroads — an appropriate climate for serious testing.
The Sand Pro Gloves were crowd favorites; expo-goers loved the ventilated flex-knuckle and its distinct hexagonal pattern.
There were obstacle courses, sand pits, dirt tracks, ropes courses and other feats of daring for the show’s thrill-seekers, and hundreds of attendees camped out on the expansive plain in some of the world’s most cleverly crafted tents, shelters and mega-RVs. REV’IT! was pleased to meet and interact with this dedicated community of adventure riders; we look forward to the event again in 2015!
“The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show is a showcase of builders and craftsmen, combining skill, knowledge and ingenuity to create one-of-a-kind handcrafted machines. These artists add fuel to a revolution in the making, one that encourages people to explore the unrivaled satisfaction and joy of creating something with one’s own hands.”
REV’IT! was in Austin, Texas over the weekend over the weekend for a downtown celebration of custom bikes and builders, where art and fashion collided with top names in American custom motorcycle design.
In keeping with the spirit of the show, REV’IT! commissioned Austinites Brian Philips, Fort Lonesome, Rich Cali and Logan Hirsch to add original, custom design to four leather Roamer jackets from the Spring/Summer 2014 urban collection. The artists used traditional techniques from embossing to chain-stitching to create works reflecting a long tradition of American motorcycle culture. The commission was a nod to the show’s mission to revive physical craftsmanship through the medium of motorcycles — and a way to highlight a growing REV’IT! urban line.
REV’IT!-sponsored Moto GP rider Alvaro Bautista made a special appearance on Friday night, enforcing the idea of a common bond between all motorcyclists, no matter the genre. Show-goers were also treated to prints from the Oil & Ink Vintage Motorbike Print Exposition, photography from Lumiere Tintype, and free showings of the infamous “Wall of Death” (which drew gasps and cries of delight every hour on the hour).
Housed in a renovated warehouse in one of Austin’s hottest neighborhoods, the show paid homage to the growing league of design-driven motorcyclists and drew several thousand spectators over its two day run. REV’IT! looks forward to expanding the partnership with the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in the future.
‘Ninety kilometers from Valencia, Spain, in what’s known as the Alto Turia region, lays a beautiful and serene natural landscape marked by deep canyons, high mountains, and unspoiled nature. Traces of civilization are sparse, especially in heart of the area: The Enduropark Aras, an adventure motorcyclist dreamland that sprawls over 15 acres of true off-road paradise’
REV’IT! and the Enduropark share a mutual passion for motorcycling and highly value quality, design and safety. In 2013 we’ve started working together; REV’IT! became the official motorcycle gear supplier for the instructors of the park and the instructors became true REV’IT! ambassadors.
Last weekend the entire REV’IT! Team visited the famous off road riding school. We set out with much enthusiasm and a healthy dose of excitement, 37 helmets were checked in as hand luggage and we’ve all boarded the plane to Valencia.
Some of us are very experienced riders, others are more into racing on the track but the instructors are prepared for everyone and have a suitable training for every level. We all started with the first level course that taught us the basic techniques, including how to control the bike in difficult situations, and valuable insights in how to ride on different types of terrain. After that we all had the skills to ride an off road trail which we´ve put to practice right away under the supervision of an instructor.
At the end of the weekend we’ve not only had a really good time, we’ve definitely put our own products to the test and all of us passed the course and are now certified off road riders.
Whether you’ve ever ridden on anything but asphalt or you are an veteran adventurer to the bone; we can now safely say and highly recommend -if you fancy riding on the toughest terrains that demands strength, courage, determination- visit our friends at the Enduropark. http://www.enduroparkarasrural.com
