The Rev’It Dominator GTX Gloves deliver just what you’d expect from a Rev’It glove on the far side of two hundred dollars: an incredible experience. Designed primarily with a concern for the needs of the cross-continental adventure rider in mind, Rev’It’s Dominator gloves blend an other-worldy level of fit and comfort with tip-top materials and protection features. You don’t need to circumnavigate the globe to enjoy the result.
Billed as four-season gloves, the Dominator GTX gloves are ideal for any kind of sport riding, commuting, or touring, and are best for the spring and fall seasons, and milder summer and winter days. Without any bulky insulation, they won’t cut it for most riders on the coldest days, but heated grips or glove liners will extend their cold-weather capability if you run with cold hands. In the summer, the Gore-Tex membrane and leather goatskin body will keep your hands breathing freely, but without any direct airflow entering the glove via perforations or textile panels, they may be too hot for some.
The unique closure featured on the Rev’It Dominator GTX gloves is a very cool, innovative design introduced by Rev’It that provides a great fit with one hand. Pull the closure tab on the inside of the wrist and it snugs the strap across the top of the hand and around the wrist.
The Dominators have a supple and strong goatskin palm to maintain a high level of tactile response and abrasion resistance, and feature water-resistant Pittards WR100X leather on the top side. A Gore-Tex waterproof and breathable membrane is guaranteed to be waterproof for life.
Pittards WR100X Leather
Pittards produces some of the best leather in the world, and their WR100X leather is tanned by a special process that inhibits the absorption and penetration of water from rain or perspiration for the life of the gloves. The WR100X process doesn’t affect the natural breathability of the leather, but will extend the life of the leather and keep your hands warmer in the rain by preventing saturation.
Gore-Tex with Gore Grip
One of the biggest gripes about waterproof gloves is that you when you pull your hand out, the inners layers come out, too. After some use, you’re stuck with a glove with an interior that’s twisted and bunched. Not exactly a comfortable, effective fit on a motorcycle. This happens because glove manufacturers can’t sew the waterproof membrane to the outer and inner layers of the glove, meaning you have three separate layers that slide and move around on top of each other. In recent years, some nicer gloves have started utilizing special adhesive membranes like Gore Grip and X-trafit to keep everything in place. You’re paying a little extra for it, but it makes a big difference.
