Rev’it may not have the immediate brand recognition of Alpinestars or Dainese, but rest assured, their products are quality. The Jerez is their top-of-the-line racing glove with full impact and abrasion protection; kangaroo leather, pittards, SuperFrabric. 3D air mesh makes up the structure with TPU knuckles and dual-comp protectors and palm sliders. All good stuff.
Why We Like It: Racing gloves will always provide the utmost in hand protection and control feel, but they are also a good choice for street riding if the weather permits. The only caveat when it comes to wearing racing gloves as everyday riding gloves is that they are big on breath-ability and short on insulation; making them a terrible choice for winter or early spring riding. Still, the Jerez happens to look great in black if that’s your thing.
Less Expensive Competitor: The Racer R-Safe comes in at $260 and is another excellent quality, fully-protective racing glove from a less prominent, but still top-notch, manufacturer.
You Should Also Check Out: The Spidi Carbo costs $300 and looks to have even more protection for those lovely hands of yours.
