RevZilla Rides RawHyde
We sent our most hardened RevZillans to RawHyde Adventures in Southern California for a crash course (pun only slightly intended) in all things ADV. And all in the name of proudly announcing our new endeavor as the official Gear Partner of RawHyde Adventures. We saw lots of rain, a ton of mud and had an incredible learning experience with the best ADV crew in the business. Be sure to check out http://revzilla.com/rawhyde for more info.
Held Phantom II Gloves Review at RevZilla.com
Held Phantom II Gloves Review
The Held Phantom 2 Gloves are the latest generation of the popular Phantom
gloves that received several upgrades for 2013. The Phantom 2 have a new
knuckle construction that is made of a single piece of TPU with a titanium
cover that is bonded to the glove without using screws. The Phantom 2 have
an updated fit with a knuckle construction that better shapes to the hand
and a cuff that eliminates some bulk. The Phantom is fully constructed of
kangaroo leather with additional protection provided by SuperFabric and
Stingray leather. The new cuff construction is better shaped to the wrist
and uses SuperFabric for abrasion resistance. At the palm side, one layer
or kangaroo across the inside of the knuckles was removed to increase grip
feel. For additional comfort, flex areas have been added to the thumb,
index and middle finger. The original Phantom has been a rider favorite
since it hit the market in 2005 and the updates for this year are all
welcomed additions. The Phantom 2 will be offered in 6 color options and in
Held numeric sizes 7-12.

and is made of one of the softest feeling leathers we've seen. The Summit
H2O offers Gore-like performance at an affordable price, comes in a ladies

Motorcycle Gloves Sizing & Buying Guide at RevZilla.com
Motorcycle Gloves Sizing & Buying Guide
Motorcycle gloves are an essential part of motorcycling gear that provide
protection from injury and the elements, improve grip, and reduce fatigue.
Motorcycle gloves are specifically designed for motorcycle use that include
abrasion resistant materials, impact protection, weather protection when
needed and securely attach to your hands. To determine glove size, most
glove manufactures use two types of measurements to determine the proper
size. The most common type of measurement is the circumference of the hand,
just below the knuckles. The other common measurement is across the
knuckles at the widest point of the hand. Using those measurements in
conjunction with the manufactures size chart is the best way to find the
right size glove. There are many types of motorcycle gloves made for
different types of riding from race or track use to motocross to sport
touring. The type of motorcycle and the type of riding a motorcyclist does
often dictates the best glove for the application. A full gauntlet glove
will offer the best protection and range from very technical race gloves
that have lots of external hard parts for high-speed crashes to all-weather
touring gloves to keep hands warm and dry. Short gloves offer the
convenience of easy on and off, but don't offer the same amount of
protection as a full gauntlet glove. With an ATGATT frame of mind, wearing
a motorcycle glove designed for motorcycle use every time you ride will
ensure the best level of protection while riding, or worse, in a crash.

An Honest Review of The Triumph Bonneville
The Bonnie is a neat bike - but it's not as amazing as many gushing reviews
online make out. I thought I'd take a little more of realistic look at what
it's like to own and ride the Triumph Bonneville.
