To prevent overheating in summer, you must make sure that all your layers contribute to optimal moisture management. It is essential to have garments that quickly wick excess moisture away from the skin. Wearing a cotton t-shirt under your leathers or textile jacket is the number one mistake that most summer riders make.
A good base layer keeps the skin dry, preserving its natural breathing properties and capacity to regulate your body temperature. Only dry skin can perform those vital functions properly, so you should always wear a synthetic base layer under your garments, to quickly wick moisture away from the skin. All REV’IT! Base Layers have this functionality. You will find base layers specifically developed for men and women, as well as specific base layers to be worn under racing leathers. All the pro riders sponsored by REV’IT! wear these.
Most summer products are constructed to be fully ventilated only. REV’IT! mid layers give you improved versatility, providing a removable thermal liner or removable membrane (or both), so you can adapt your jacket and trousers quickly to the weather conditions. This is optimum flexibility for staying comfortable on summer rides.
The perfect outer shell for summer riding offers the perfect blend between protection and ventilation. Within the REV’IT! range, you will find a wide choice, varying from full mesh textile jackets and trousers to multi-season leather jackets and trousers. When equipped with a removable membrane and/or thermal liner, most of these styles will keep you comfortable from spring to autumn.
From adventure-ride style gloves to fully protective sports gloves, REV’IT! offers a lot of choice when it comes to fully ventilated summer gloves. Constructed according to the Engineered skin design concept, these gloves ensure that your hands stay cool and safe.
Motorcycle socks are probably the most underestimated piece of equipment in your summer riding wardrobe. You have to experience the difference with REV’IT! supportive motorcycle socks to become a believer. Whilst your friends are feeling the effects on their feet after a summer day’s ride, your feet will be dry, relaxed, and hardly fatigued. Try it and you will never want to ride without them.
As for boots, we offer the fully ventilated Airblend for summer touring rides.
