Rev’it! Vs Alpinestars Racing Suits
For a sport that is hair-raising, nail-biting and adrenaline-charged like the motocross bike racing, with a large fan base and a larger number of audiences, it is expected that there will be a mad rush by different brands to make their racing suits stand out from the competition.
Motorcycle jackets are an important part of racing gear and it would be a great disservice not to name them as one of the most important parts of a riding gear after naming the bike.
Much more than this, after many years in the sport the real ‘shot callers’ which are the athletes, get to choose which of the racing suits works the best for them in terms of performance and appearance.
Racing suits as we know play three vital roles which include:
• Protection, and
• Promotion for the competitors and their crew.
Among the many companies that design racing gears, two well-known brands are notable for designing riding gears that many love and many uses.
These two – Rev’it and Alpine stars racing suits – have been chosen by the top performers as the racing suits of choice in terms of appearance and performance amidst several other factors.
Here we will compare some features of these two top racing suits and leave you to decide which brand to opt for.
For the many who love racing suits designed by Rev’it, the combination of high-performance cowhide leathers from which they are made is a major appeal.
Built to resist intense force the racing suit lovers claim it was designed to withstand strong forces which the riders can encounter in the event of crashes and collisions because of the Kevlar-like materials that adorn its outer layer.
Adjustability, durability, and utility are the factors they claim to make the racing suits designed by Rev’it a better option when compared to Racing suits made by Alpinestars.
Lovers and users of racing suits by Alpinestars say it’s the best because of the brilliant colors and well-streamlined features which are not only a technological wonder but the perfect description of a beautiful safety suit. Rev’it racing suits a rent so backward in this regard, but the sexy appeal of Alpine suits places in the top in this regard.
Alpinestars racing suits come with sensors and a sort of ‘airbag’ system which plays the role of a cushion in the event of crashes which are a regular feature in a sport of such intensity and immensity.
Rev’it suits also have a padded, sculpted and studded nature that offer reasonable protection in addition to the quality of build as mentioned initially.
However, while some argue that the hi-tech feature in the racing suits by Alpinestars impede speed while proffering safety, others disagree with such presumption arguing that MX racing is more about skill and technique and less about the effect of the outfit.
Regarding price which in most cases is a major determinant as regards purchasing, both riding gears sell for almost the same price.
This leaves the undecided buyer a huge choice to make between two equally magnificent but different riding gears.
Amateurs vs Professionals
For a sport that has both amateur and professional levels, motorcycle riding gear that will boost performance and is easy to use is often the gear of choice for an amateur.
Many say Rev’it Riding kits are just “it” for amateurs while for the professionals with a name to protect and a trophy to be won, riding kits which will make this goal(s) attainable, realizable and achievable with the least amount of damage possible is the riding gear from Alpinestars.
