REV'IT! Tornado Pants The REV'IT! TORNADO trousers combine maximum cooling, through air mesh panels, with abrasion-resistant fabric and CE-approved armor at the knees, to give you ultimate temperature flexibility in adventure touring trousers. Like the REV'IT! TORNADO jacket, the trousers are equipped with the all-new 2-in-1 liners that combine a 100 waterproof membrane with a thermal insulated liner, which are easily zipped out and stowed away for hot weather days. These trousers are so practical and easy to get on and off (with or without liners), thanks to the full length zippers, that you're going to wonder how you ever lived without them. REVIT PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester rib, PWRshell mesh, polyester 600D, PWRwax 500D, PWRshell 500D stretch, polyester dull 600D, Lorica reg Insulation detachable 2-in-1 thermal liner and membrane Waterproofing detachable hydratex G-liner (5000mm H2O) Breathability detachable hydratex G-liner (5000g/m2/24hrs) Composition outer shell 86 polyamide, 14 polyester lining 100 polyester membrane 100 polyamide (100 polyurethane coating, insulation 100 polyester) Protection Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees, prepared for TRYONIC Seesoft CE-level 1 type B hip protector insert - version RV01 ( sold separately ) Visibility laminated reflection at upper legs and calves ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist, adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features short connection zipper, elastic at waistband, adjustable protector pockets, easy entrance zipper Pockets slit pockets NOTE The Tornado Pants run 1 size larger compared to other REV'IT! Pants and to what the size charts indicate. If you measure up to be a size 52, you should go with a 50 instead.

This is the second pair of Tornado pants I have purchased. My first pair was torn to shreds by a barbed wire fence after a fall. The pants did not fare well but they are mesh and textile so it is to be expected to sacrifice some protection for overall comfort. Why would I buy the same pants after I shredded the first ones? Because they are otherwise perfect for me.
I'm 5'11 200 with a thick body. I wear 34-36" waist in most jeans with a 32" inseam, the size 52 on these was spot on with enough room to adjust either way. This size also happened to be perfect as overpants.
I have worn these in high 40°F to mid 90°F and have been extremely comfortable. The 2-1 liner works great for me, I prefer the convenience of not having to fiddle with two liners. I have a 30 minute commute to and from work between 10 PM to 8 AM from speeds of 45-80 MPH. Even though I try not to ride in the rain, I've been caught under a couple of rain clouds and the pants kept me dry. In the 70°F range the liner begins to feel a little too warm for me. For the heat, the mesh venting is great in the temperatures in the 80°F and above they keep the wind flowing, and perhaps if I didn't purchase in black they would have kept me cooler at stops. The weather in central coast CA doesn't get too hot or too cold so to me these are true 4 season pants.
Although comfortable and good looking they do need better pockets. They are designed right in the front of the leg instead of off to the side and the zippers make it uncomfortable getting in and out. I wouldn't mind some cargo style pockets like on some of the other models. Not a huge complaint but it could be an improvement. With the liner zipped in these pants have a tendency to pinch my junk, I have to adjust every now and then after a stop.
Overall very happy with this Rev'it! pair. I'm not a hardcore cross country tour rider or knee dragger but dabble here and there and these are sensible enough to accompany my ventures in to a variety of a circumstances without falling too deep into a category.

I purchased this because I was getting the honeymoon treatment on my CBR600RR with blasts all over my face, neck and chest. I'm 5'11 200lbs and can tuck behind the screen almost completely, strenuous but achievable and at 3/4 tuck the wind hits me at about helmet face shield level. It's a little expensive but the bike looks good, I got the smoke version, and it performs like it's supposed to.

It is also height adjustable to set clearance under rear wheel. Same as Standard Forward Handle Rear Stand except for interchangeable top supports. Sold complete with top supports. Advantages to the forward handle stands a) user can hold bike's handgrip when getting stand into place, b) no part of stand is behind bike, and c) lower bar of stand helps align axle when installing rear wheel.

This stand is like a second pair of hands. It is very simple to use by myself and have used it so far on Triumph Street Triple, Ninja 250R, and CBR600RR. It has helped me remove the rear tire, work on rear brakes, clean chain, clean under the tail, remove fairings, change oil, center rear tire, adjust chain, clean rim and tire so far.

This pack is great for biking because redistributes the weight off the shoulders and in to the chest getting rid of back pain over long rides. After about 6 months there are some frayed bits here and there but I would say that is normal wear of any textile. The locking system is quite durable and extremely easy to use even with your helmet and gloves on its very natural to use. This backpack has large loops easy enough to get in to while wearing any of my jackets, compared to my Jansport which makes me look like a dancing buffoon suffering a cardiac arrest.
It has enough room, pockets, and adjustability to keep me happy and earn a recommendation.

I must admit I purchased this jacket used at a discount which helps me give it more value for its cost. I'm 5'11 200lbs with a wide chest and shoulders so I purchased the XL, the jacket fits me very well with enough room to wear a hoodie underneath but tight enough to keep the armor in place. I tried a size Large in a store and it would have been much too tight.
I have a 30 minute work commute, but with a twist, it's at night and speeds range from 45-80 MPH. I've gotten a chance to ride it in mid 50 °F up to mid 90 °F, where it performed better. This jacket is definitely not for the cold, the arms vent quite well and has no collar to block the wind at the neck, it would have been more versatile if the included liner would have been a full sleeve quilted liner. My arms start to get chilly in the 65-70° F riding at 80 MPH. At a stop in the 90°F range the jacket feels suffocating and it is sweat inducing, once at speed it has enough venting too cool you down. I hear the non-graphic version of this jacket vents better through the chest.
I went down in this jacket while wearing Rev'it! Tornado pants. I fishtailed in to a barbed wire fence and while the mesh, textile pants were shredded to bits, the thick leather and plastic parts on this jacket held up enough for me to keep wearing it. The barbs managed to cut through the leather but it was repairable.
I highly recommend this jacket, I would have rather have gotten it in white, red, with graphic over the black one to help with the heat or even trade the graphic for some more perforation but it is tolerable. If riding with this jacket in the cold get a size large enough to accommodate a thermal layer.

Bought this because my girlfriend and I were having problems communicating on seperate motorcycles. It has made the riding experience with her much easier and enjoyable because since she doesn't have much saddle time I can talk to her and answer any questions she might have. She is also the reason why I opted for the dial version over the newer button one.
The set has decent range but in the canyons it can become strained when rocks in between us, onobstructed the range is very good. It has some good functions besides the intercom, the phone clarity is very good in my shoei RF-1100 up to around 70 MPH and depending on wind conditions, but I've yet to maintain a conversation at full volume because I haven't needed to. The iPhone 4S voice control activates when the phone button is pushed but it can get frustrating because the phone needs a very clear set of directions without any background noise. The phone button on the Sena make it easier to answer and hang up though. All the controls are easy and the manual explains everything. You do have to re-connect the set to each other after the firmware update however but the manual makes it all a cinch. Very happy with the set. Don't know how durable it is because I don't beat on it but I've had it for about 3 weeks and works great, I ride everyday and commute to work late nights/early mornings so not manh cagers to worry about, just play some music and get to work. Install was easy, but I put the mic under the cheek padding because there was a little too much wind noise for the person on the line, after that they understood me a bit better. Speakers are nice and loud. Charges quick, lasts a long time.
Yes, I recommend this product.
