A Refined Design for Premium Winter Protection

Last year’s Revit Hydra 2 gloves were a bestseller due to their optimal balance of weather protection and flexibility.

The heavyweight Hydras nailed critical factors like insulation, waterproofing, and breathability without becoming overbuilt oven mitts limiting dexterity. My only critique was their polarizing aesthetics, emblazoned with huge logos.

The Casinos address this flaw, crafted in cotton twill and leather with subtle, professional-looking branding.

With equal specs to the Hydra 2s, plus a sleeker design, the Casinos earn my wholehearted recommendation as this winter’s prime urban riding glove.

What Exactly Makes The Revit Casinos Excel as Cold Weather Riding Gloves?

Abrasion Protection

  • Diamond-grade goatskin leather construction
  • Double stitching for durability
  • Cowhide palm reinforcement
  • Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) knuckle armor

Weather Resistance

  • Hydratex waterproof, breathable membrane
  • Thinsulate insulation layer
  • Long cuffs seal out snow and rain

Comfort Features

  • Soft goatskin palm
  • Spandex gussets for flexibility
  • Touchscreen-compatible fingertip

The Casinos artfully balance abrasion protection, weather barriers, insulation, and flexibility – key factors for winter motorcycle gloves.

Spandex gussets between the fingers ribbed Lycra on the backs, and a soft, supple goatskin palm also enhance flexibility. Together, the materials enable excellent grip and brake/throttle control reminiscent of lightweight
