WELCOME TO THE DENIM EVOLUTION
Our passion for creating world-class motorcycle apparel is further emphasized through our denim collection. We deliver jeans with not only the highest level of protection and comfort, but also with style.
Back in 2013, REV’IT! launched its first motorcycle denim collection and entered the market with a bang. They have been an instant hit. Until then, most denims were constructed from regular cotton reinforced by Kevlar® panels and often raised questions about quality and reliability.
We approached things a little bit differently, constructing our jeans with a single-layer CORDURA® DENIM, most incorporating COOLMAX® for enhanced breathability and moisture wicking, reinforced at critical points by the first generation of PWR|Shield fabric at the hips, seat, and knees, all held together by triple needle stitching.
A lot has happened since. With the arrival of our in-house developed, ultra-thin, virtually undetectable SEESMART™ CE-level 1 hip and knee protectors, we were able to cut even slimmer silhouettes; reducing the overall weight of the jeans, while at the same time, enhancing breathability of the garments. The introduction of the first generation of stretch CORDURA® DENIM was another game changer, especially in terms of wearer comfort.
Having the accessibility of our own in-house test laboratorium, we were well prepared to take motorcycle denim to the next level.
GREAT LOOKING DENIM
PASSING THE TEST
Quite a few denim fabrics provide great impact abrasion resistance. Many have excellent tear strength. Some perform really well on seam strength.
Today, however, motorcycle garments, including motorcycle jeans, fall under the scope of the PPE directive, meaning that they are subject to certification under the EN 17092:2020 protective motorcycle clothing standard. This means that denims have to undergo a series of stringent tests - that all need to result in a pass - and determined on that pass, will result in achieving an A, AA, or AAA certification level.
Different washings alone can already make a huge difference, that one and the same model will result in highly different test results, not even passing level A requirements.
The REV’IT! design team has developed a new set of trimmings that not only ups the ante in terms of luxurious details, but allows you to instantly recognise what CE certification class the item has.
The accent color with the reflection at the turnup will be black for all CE levels, however the nail cap of the shank button (button at the center front), and coin pocket rivet are now color-coordinated and indicated as follows in terms of CE certification:
RED - CLASS AAA CERTIFIED
BLUE - CLASS AA CERTIFIED
BLACK - CLASS A CERTIFIED
It is not the first time in our history that new fabrics and technologies applied to our garments have found their origin in our in-house test lab. But never before has an entire product range been developed on the basis of in-depth, scientific research, analysis, and testing of single-layer fabrics and construction techniques.
New Stretch CORDURA® DENIM Fabrics
We have sourced and developed new stretch CORDURA® DENIM fabrics that enable us to bring you the most amazing washings ranging from 12,5 oz. to 16,5 oz. in weight.
New PWR | Shield 2.0
In some models, we’re using specific washings that require additional strengthening by PWR|Shield to obtain the desired CE certification levels. The new PWR|Shield fabric is thinner, lighter, and even more comfortable against the skin, so when applied, you won’t even notice it. Our AAA jeans come with PWR|Shield under the seat, hips, crotch, and the knee area above and below the protector pocket, covering the knee area.
The Single-Layer Solution
Most jeans in our collection are so-called 'single-layer denims'. They not only look like regular fashion jeans, but also feel and wear like them too. You’ll find these characteristics in our A and AA certified jeans. We are able to create a single-layer because the new materials are inherently stronger by nature, therefore, we don’t need to use a reinforcement.
Last but not least, all SS22 jeans styles are vegan approved! No leather trimmings are used in any of the details for the denim
Introducing the new RV36 SEESMART™ CE-Level 1 Knee Protector
To create an even slimmer silhouette in our denim collection, we developed a new SEESMART™ RV36 knee protector: a protector which is pre-shaped and narrower at the center. Especially for slim and skinny fit denims, this new protector is a great solution that every fashion-conscious rider will love.
Certified CE-Level 1, the pre-shaped protectors not only offer better comfort, but the open structure continues to allow air to travel through, enhancing the breathability component. Furthermore, the notches that run along the side of them have a tapered characteristic, allowing them to integrate more seamlessly and they don’t compromise the silhouette of the jeans. They also now align better with the side seam so when in the riding position (if the tank is wider) and the jeans start to pull, the protectors still sit in the proper position.
Left and right versions of the RV36 SEESMART™ protectors have been created for maximum safety and coverage.
