Revit Hyperspeed Pro / Air
The Rev'It Hyperspeed Pro jacket means business and is technically on par with its one piece sibling including elbow sliders and a speedhump you typically find on track ready items. This jacket is for people who like the features of the Revit Hyperspeed One-Piece Suit but want the convenience of a separately wearable jacket. At a recommended retail price of 550 euros, or around 580 USD, this jacket will be competing with the Dainese Racing 3, Dainese Assen, Dainese Avro 4, and the Alpinestars GP Pro V2 jackets.
Starting with outer shell, the main material used is cowhide leather, with makes up the majority of this piece of motorcycle gear. On the sides and back of the jacket, as well as on the back of the sleeves, there is perforated leather to encourage airflow into the jacket. Under the armpits and down the sleeves and sides of the jacket there is Revit’s PWR stretch Shell, which makes the jacket more flexible by providing some elasticity.
There is some 3D air mesh up near the collar, arms, and back, which is allow airflow to reach the upper body of the jacket and keep you cool. Lastly, the collar is made of neoprene, and is very flexible, and has REV’IT written nice and big on both sides in case you forgot whose jacket you were wearing.
As far as protection goes, the Rev’It HyperspeedPro has you covered, and this is really where you can see its Moto GP influence. SEEFLEX CE Level 2 protectors at the elbows and shoulders come standard (the latter receiving a boost in protective performance) with an externally positioned dual comp protector straight from MotoGP.
If that wasn’t enough, on the back of the jacket Revit added a speed hump to make you more aerodynamic out on the road. You also have the options to add Revit's SEESOFT CE Level 2 back protector insert, as well as REVIT’s divided Level 1 CE rated chest protector SEESOFT inserts.
Looking at the Rev’It Hyperspeed Pro leather jacket’s features for comfort and adjustment, the jacket has a few areas where adjustments can be made.
The jacket obviously opens and closes using a zipper, and while there are no adjustments around the collar, you will find zip in on both of sleeves, which will allow to easily take the jacket off and put it back on without removing your gloves, and also find adjustments can be made around the waist using the Velcro straps, which will tighten or loosen the fit.
There is also a Velcro closure at the bottom of the zipper to prevent any scratching. Pockets can be found on both sides of the jacket, and those are accessed via zippers, which are nicely covered by leather.
The Revit HyperspeedPro motorcycle jacket has a detachable body warmer for use when the weather gets a little bit colder, that liner simply zips in, and also offers an additional internal pocket. There is a pocket to replace this one inside the main jacket should you ride without the liner, and the main jacket also has an internal pocket on the side near the zipper. For added airflow, Revit also offer the Revit Hyperspeed Air jacket with additional ventilation panels in the jacket.
If you remove the detachable and sleeveless thermal liner, you find that the internal liner of the jacket is made of mesh to encourage airflow inside the jacket. At the bottom of the jacket on the back you find a connection zip for if you want to connect the jacket to a pair of Revit riding trousers or (combined with a Safeway 2 belt) Revit riding jeans.
The Revit Hyper Speed Pro Jacket does a good job providing us with the features of a one-piece suit in a more convenient package. It offers great features and excellent protection that mean you can enjoy summer to the fullest while donning a tough, sport-focused jacket.
