These are a relatively new addition to Rev’It’s substantial range of gloves, and they sit firmly at the top, nudging the long-running Jerez gloves from the highest step of the podium – and at £250 they’re more expensive than almost all the off-the-shelf gloves you can buy. Rev’It Jerez Pro Gloves feature an insane amount of protection. They’ve been developed in MotoGP, worn by the likes of Bradley Smith and Alvaro Bautista.
Each Rev’It Jerez Pro Gloves is Kevlar-lined and has 13 pieces of hard armour. The armour on the back of the hand is split to allow movement. There’s a titanium-covered section on the knuckles and the cuff, two palm sliders, bits on the back of the fingers and thumb, and more on the side of the pinky.
You might expect all that protection to adversely effect the comfort – but not so. Made mostly from kangaroo leather and with external seams around the fingers, Rev’It Jerez Pro Gloves are among the comfiest sports gloves I’ve used.
