More info: This document explains some of the features and materials listed above. (Not all REV’IT! products have all the features or materials listed. Use your back button after viewing.)
Please Note: We can ship REV’IT! products to US, US territory or APO/FPO addresses only (per manufacturer’s restrictions).
We find that gloves from REV’IT! are generally very consistent in fit from one model to the next, and we find they run a bit on the snug side as compared to most US based brands. The fit is very similar to Alpinestars which also fit more snugly than other brands of gloves. The tendency to run small is not so noticeable that we’d advise you to buy one size larger, but if you are sometimes in between sizes, your best shot would be to choose larger. Hopefully you’ve had some experience with buying gloves and can choose based upon the fit of a previous pair. If you have no previous experience with glove sizing, go here for help.
Our Two Cents
Last fall, I reviewed the Bomber gloves by REV’IT! and this new RSR 2 Summer glove seems to be about the same thing but with a gauntlet. The most prominent protective feature is the hard plastic palm slider over the heel of the hand. A slider like this is almost a universal feature on race gloves nowadays. In a fall, when you put your hands out in front of you to ward off the rapidly approaching pavement, the likely point of contact will be the heel area of the hand. The slider promotes sliding along the pavement rather than a grab/twist motion that you might get with other materials (like leather covered padding).
These gloves also have good looking hard molded plastic knuckle protectors. The protector has a carbon material base with clear plastic over the top so you can see the dark grey/black fibers which is sharp. And another nice protective feature is the Velcro close strap at the wrist which keeps the gloves on your hand if you have an impact.
The name of this glove throws me a bit. It is a lighter weight leather gauntlet glove and has some nice features, but venting isn’t one of them, so I’m not sure where the “summer” part comes from, but if you are in the market for a solid leather protective glove, then this will work great. And the color choices are sharp with the white/black background. Maybe the white is what got them named “summer”. :: Paul, 03-12-15
