Key Takeaways

A Closer Look at the Features

The Revit Hawk gloves check all the boxes for summer motorcycle glove essentials. Here’s a breakdown of the key details:

Materials: Durable, supple goatskin leather offers abrasion resistance along with temper foam and PWR shield reinforcements. Stretch panels add flexibility.

Functionality: Touchscreen-compatible fingertips enhance convenience.

Comparison to other Summer Motorcycle Gloves

Product NameKey Features
Klim Induction GloveCarbon fiber knuckle protection, goatskin leather and air mesh construction, waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex liner
Alpinestars SPX V2 GlovesFull-grain leather chassis, injected TPU sliders, patented finger bridge, reinforced landing zones
Revit Dirt 3 GlovesFull-grain leather chassis, injected TPU sliders, patented finger bridge, reinforced landing zones.

The Revit Hawk motorcycle gloves have a goatskin leather construction similar to the Klim Induction and Revit Dirt 3 gloves, providing abrasion resistance.

However, the Hawk lacks the premium carbon fiber knuckles of the Klim Induction or the heavy-duty armor of the Alpinestars SPX V2.

The Dirt 3 gloves offer comparable protection levels but are designed specifically for off-road use with more ventilation, while the Hawk targets street riding. In terms of value, the budget-friendly Hawk gloves provide decent quality for the price point.

How Do They Perform On the Road?

Riding with the Revit Hawk gloves this summer provided great insights into their real-world strengths and weaknesses:

Fit and Comfort

The contoured shape offers an ergonomic fit. Snug for safety yet flexible enough for all-day wear.

Breathability

Ventilation is only average. Sweaty palms on hot days show the limits of non-perf leather.

Dexterity

Thin, tactile leather retains great feel and control. Touchscreen use is flawless.

Protection

While not race grade, the armor still instills confidence to resist abrasion.

Value

Competitively priced against rival summer options. Durability will determine ultimate value.

Overall, the gloves perform admirably well, given their price bracket. The protection and quality outpaces expectations. Just don’t expect perforated airflow like more expensive options.

FAQs

How is the sizing on these gloves?

I recommend checking Revit’s size chart to dial in the best fit. They run quite true-to-size in my experience. With leather, a snugger fit often feels better for control.

Would these work for winter riding?

No, the lack of insulation and waterproof membranes makes them a poor choice in cold or wet conditions. Look for winter-specific gloves instead.

What other color options are available?

Currently, only black is offered, but additional colors are sometimes released in subsequent seasons after the initial launch.

Can aftermarket protectors be added?

While not designed for it, slim foam protectors could fit under the outer material without overly restricting movement. But the stock armor already performs admirably.

Do the touchscreen fingertips last?

Yes, the conductive material remains fully functional unless excessively worn down over time. Light riding preserves conductivity for years of consistent smartphone use with the gloves on.

And Finally…

For riders seeking lightweight, dexterous summer motorcycle gloves without breaking the bank, the Revit Hawk gloves deliver.

Making small compromises in ventilation and premium features allows them to undercut rival prices significantly while still providing trustworthy protection and construction quality. While not the ultimate track or touring solution, they hit a sweet spot for budget-minded enthusiasts.
