8000-MILE GLOVE TEST
IN-DEPTH TESTING OVER MONTHS AND MILES
Rev’it Jerez Pro gloves £249.99 www.revitsport.com
I’VE HAD THESE Jerez Pros for about three years now. I was impressed with the comfort of the previous model and thought that an improved version with more armour was sure to be excellent.
Well, more armour is something of an understatement. Each glove has 13 separate pieces of external hard armour. 13! On each glove! Ridiculous.
Be it the titanium knuckles and cuffs, the plastic finger sliders, the concertinaeffect armour on the back of the hand or the ‘Engineered Skin’ palm and scaphoid sliders, the Jerez Pros are dripping in it.
On the inside, there’s the odd bit of padding and the entire back of the hand is lined with Aramid fibre material for even more protection. The remaining parts of the glove are made from various bits of cow, goat and kangaroo.
So with all that, it’d be reasonable to expect some compromise on comfort, right? Wrong. These are frankly the most comfortable sports gloves I’ve ever put my hands into. Every piece of external armour works in harmony with the other, giving them unhindered mobility and an unbeatable level of comfort.
Now, after three years and a vast collection of gloves to choose from, these are still – without question – my glove of choice for every trackday. There’s no sign of any stitching coming apart or any abnormal wear and they’re still as comfy as ever. A bit pricey, I know, but sometimes in life you really do get what you pay for.
Any ways to improve them? Not really.
“Any ways to improve? More colour options...”
Some more colour options would be nice I suppose.
Lots of protection doesn’t mean a lack of comfort
