During a downpour of rain, an afternoon drizzle any woman rider knows the importance and comfort of keeping your hands dry. Here our Revit Zenith H2o Review will show you the ideal glove! This glove stills allow ability to control the clutch, brake and throttle easily and comfortably, without slipping while keeping your hands dry! REV’IT! Ladies Zenith H20 passed the test meeting all criteria!
REV’IT!‘S line of waterproof gloves is easily distinguished from their regular gloves as they’re classified as the H20 line. The ZENITH H2O LADIES version glove is notably feminine, accented with stylish imprinted details on its leather outer shell, with a soft satiny feel from its tri-fleece liner; a waterproof and breathable inner membrane. The palm is made of soft goatskin giving a lightweight feel, allowing your hand the flexibility required to operate controls effortlessly.
The Zenith is designed in the gauntlet length. This makes perfect sense as it’s the gauntlet which results in maximum protection, fully covering your wrists. Plus you achieve extra fit with an adjustment strap at the wrist- a great benefit to keeping the glove snug and in place. There’s also another adjustment tab at the cuff to doubly ensure no wind or water gets in!
Wet weather riding is more hazardous so protection is a high priority and with this regard as well, nothing has been forgotten in the Zenith’s design for safety. It’s even more abrasion-resistant by way of a silicon-injected protector on the palm and an extra SuperFabric® layer on the outside of the little finger where the glove is likely to contact the ground.

What is Hydratex®?
This is a waterproof layer which is laminated onto a carrier to construct the REV’IT! Hydratex® membrane. The carrier in turn protects the membrane against rub and tear damage. The seams of the membrane are toped to ensure waterproofing.
What is SuperFabric®?
This is an advanced process that transforms ordinary fabrics into unique, highly protective materials. Protective shields are applied close to each other but remain separate to allow maximum flexibility. Those micro guard plates provide and additional layer of protection without adding weight and will resist abrasion to underlying fabrics. SuperFabric® is 5 times more abrasion resistant than leather with only half the weight.
