Cool tex­tile suit is a so­lu­tion for sum­mer

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

Dutch firm REV’IT has re­vamped its pop­u­lar tex­tile sum­mer rid­ing suit to cre­ate the Tor­nado 2.

The suit is made from a se­lec­tion of dif­fer­ent tough textiles in the most likely im­pact zones, with 1000-de­nier shell in the main ar­eas and also 750-de­nier mesh pan­els to al­low fresh air to get in or out when the rid­ing sea­son kicks into force and the mer­cury starts to rise.

The jacket and trousers are both equipped with Rev’it’s highly flex­i­ble Seeflex ar­mour, which is still pro­tec­tive enough to be rated to the higher of the two CE ap­proval lev­els avail­able. Thin­ner Seesmart Level one ar­mour is in­cluded at the hips, which is both wel­come and a rar­ity in bike trousers. There’s no back pro­tec­tor fit­ted as stan­dard, but there’s a pocket that will ac­com­mo­date Rev’it’s op­tional up­grade ar­mour, which costs an ex­tra £29.99.

The outer is heav­ily vented to keep the rider cool, but both jacket and trousers come with a com­bined ther­mal and wa­ter­proof, breath­able lin­ing to keep out the chill and rain when re­quired.

The jacket has also been re­vamped to make it com­pat­i­ble with Rev’it’s Chal­lenger cool­ing vest for use in high tem­per­a­tures, the com­pany’s high-viz at­tach­ment vest and its Strap­per braces.

As with much of the REV’IT range, the Tor­nado 2 trousers are avail­able in a range of leg lengths, which helps en­sure the knee ar­mour will stay in the right place. The jack­ets come in black, sil­ver, neon yel­low or khaki and the trousers are avail­able in black or sil­ver.
