REAX Motorcycle Gear: Everything You Need to Know

RevZilla’s experience as a retailer gave REAX a head start on knowing what consumers want in motorcycle gear: practical gear with a clean, understated style

Reax is a relatively new name in motorcycle apparel, but most riders are probably familiar with the company behind it: retailer RevZilla and its parent company, COMOTO. Reax was only founded in 2018, but it’s been able to establish itself relatively quickly, thanks to RevZilla’s large online presence, along with its sister brands, J&P Cycles, and Cycle Gear.

RevZilla’s experience as a retailer gave REAX a head start on knowing what consumers want in motorcycle gear. REAX gear tends to have a very understated style, with a clean look and minimal branding. REAX motorcycle gear tends to be functional, providing features and a level of protection riders want at a reasonable price point.

MO Tested: Reax Gloves, Jacket, And Jeans

As an in-house private label, REAX is only available through RevZilla and Cycle Gear, which does limit your ability to shop around for better deals. The plus side, though, is that there’s no middle-man, allowing REAX to keep the prices fairly reasonable.

1. REAX Alta Mesh Jacket (Men's)

The Alta was one of REAX’s initial launch products, and its first mesh jacket. The outer shell is a combination of a durable poly mesh with a 600D check pattern and 980D ballistic reinforcements for strong abrasion resistance while still providing cooling airflow.

The jacket comes with a removable waterproof liner that can be worn either over or under the jacket.

The Alta mesh jacket comes standard with SAS-TEC CE Level 2 protectors for the elbows and shoulders. The jacket can also be fitted with a back protector (sold separately).

Other features include zippered cuffs, a waterproof interior device pocket, subtle reflective highlights, an adjustable waist, and an interior 8-inch zipper to connect to riding pants.

2. REAX Alta Mesh Jacket (Women's)

A relatively new addition to the REAX lineup is the women’s version of the Alta mesh jacket. It offers similar features, but with an outer shell made of durable 600D ripstop textile, 750D hard mesh and 300D stretch mesh inserts.

Where the men’s version has four color options, the women’s jacket is only available in all-black or the silver/black contrasting colorway pictured above.

3. REAX Apex Pro Mesh Jacket

The Apex Pro mesh jacket offers a sportier profile than the Alta, drawing some design elements from REAX’s Jackson leather jacket.

The outer shell is made of 600D poly mesh material for a balance of ventilation and abrasion resistance. Monaco leather panels offer additional protection in common impact areas. SAS-TEC CE Level 2 elbow and shoulder armor comes standard, with an optional back protector sold separately.

The jacket comes with a removable waterproof liner which can be worn over or under the jacket, or stowed away in a rear storage pouch when not needed.

Other features include zippered cuffs with neoprene stretch panels, an interior waterproof device pocket, and an 8-inch zipper jacket-to-pants connector.

4. REAX Kelly Leather Jacket

The Kelly replaces the Jackson as REAX’s flagship leather jacket. Available only in black, the Kelly jacket is made of 100% cowhide leather, with a thickness ranging from 0.8-1.0 mm in thickness.

As with REAX’s other jackets, the Kelly comes standard with SAS-TEC CE Level 2 armor for the elbows and shoulders, with a pocket for an optional back protector (sold separately).

The articulated sleeves and zippered hip gussets help ensure a comfortable fit while riding. Inside the jacket is a moisture-wicking stretch mesh lining, a waterproof pocket for electronic devices, additional cargo pockets and a belt loop.

5. REAX Alta Mesh Pants

The Alta mesh pants join the matching jacket as REAX’s gear for warmer weather. Like the jacket, the pants are made of a poly durable mesh, 600D check pattern mesh and 980D ballistic reinforcements in key areas. The pants come with CE Level 2 knee armor, and the pants can be supplemented with optional hip armor sold separately.

The Alta pants has a moisture-wicking stretchy mesh liner, articulated legs, and an adjustable waist with a high back.

6. REAX 215 Jeans

The REAX 215 is a relaxed fit, straight-legged riding jean with a classic five-pocket look. The jeans are contrsucted of a 12oz cotton denim fabric with Aramid reinforcements in the seat, thigh and knees and triple-stitched seams in critical spots.

The 215 jeans come with SAS-TEC CE Level 2 adjustable and vented knee armor that is fitted with a hook and loop fastener for height and side-to-side adjustments. The jeans can be fitted with hip armor (sold separately).

REAX offers the 215 jeans in black or a faded blue denim.

7. REAX 267 Jeans

The 267 jeans offer an upgrade over the 215s, incorporating Dyneema and elastane into the 12oz denim for additional stretch and an “AA” slide rating. The 267s are tailored for a slim, straight fit, with reinforced belt loops and a leather belt guide.

Like the 215 jeans, the 267s have triple-stitched seams in select spots and comes standard with SAS-TEC CE Level 2 adjustable and vented knee armor (additional hip armor is sold separately).

8. REAX 610 Jeans

The REAX 610 is a slim-cut riding jean made of a blend of 99% cotton and 1% elastane with ARamid reinforcements in the seat, thigh and knees. The black coated version is made of 12oz denim while the washed blue jeans are an 11.5oz.

SAS-TEC CE Level 2 adjustable and vented knee armor is standard, with hip pockets ready to accept additional armor (sold separately).

9. REAX 112 Women's Jeans

A relatively new addition to REAX’s lineup is its first riding jeans for women. The 112 jeans are a single-layer full-rise, slim fit jean. Like the 267s, the 112 jeans are a blend of stretch denim with Dyneema and elastane, helping it achieve an “AA” slide rating.

The jeans come with CE Level 2 knee armor and can be fitted with optional hip armor (sold separately).

10. REAX Superfly Mesh Gloves (Men's)

The Superfly is REAX’s basic short-cuffed riding glove. The Superfly gloves are made of 0.8-0.9mm perforated cowhide with a goat leather palm and a poly mesh backside.

The gloves offer TPR protective finger inserts, a high-density flexible palm pad, and a leather-wrapped hard knuckle. The fingers are pre-curved and touchscreen capable.

Other features include a moisture-wicking lining, adjustable hook-and-loop closure and subtle reflective highlights.

11. REAX Superfly Mesh Gloves (Women's)

The women’s version of the REAX Superfly gloves offer similar features to the men’s gloves, but with a 100% nylon lock mesh backhand.

12. REAX Hawk Mesh Gloves

The REAX Hawk Mesh Gloves are made of a full cowhide leather palm while the back offers sonic welded fully-vented 3D mesh TPR protection. The TPR goes from the back of the hand to the tips of the fingers which gives the entire back some added protection, but it does add a bit of bulkiness and stiffness compared to a regular leather back.

Other features include mesh inserts, a TPR palm slide protector, touchscreen compatible fingers and an adjustable hook-and-loop wrist closure.

13. REAX Tasker Leather Gloves

The REAX Tasker is an all-leather glove made of a 100% 0.8-0.9mm cowhide backhand and a goat leather palm. The fingers are pre-curved and offer accordion-style stretch ribbing for added flexibility.

TPR inserts protect the fingers but if you want a hard knuckle, you should consider other options such as the Castor gloves below.

Other features include touchscreen capable index fingers and thumbs, a vibration-dampening palm pad insert, a moisture-wicking lining and an adjustable hook-and-loop closure.

14. REAX Women's Tasker Air Gloves

The women’s Tasker Air Gloves are similar to the men’s version, but with perforated leather for better air-flow.

15. REAX Castor Leather Gloves

The REAX Castor is a three-season leather glove with a sportier design. The Castor gloves are made of a 0.8-0.9mm cowhide backhand and a goat leather palm. The back is covered with a hard, leather-wrapped protector while the fingers are protected by TPR inserts.

Other features include a moisture-wicking lining, reflective highlights, an adjustable hook-and-loop closure, and touchscreen capability.

16. REAX Ridge WP Gloves

The Ridge WP is REAX’s waterproof gauntlet-style glove, making it suitable for spring and fall seasons where you expect cooler temperatures and the occasional sprinkle.

The gloves are made of a textile and leather material, with Superfabric reinforcements that hide the waterproof membrane. A leather-wrapped hard protector covers the knuckle while the palm is made of goat leather.

Other highlights include touchscreen capability, reflective highlights, a moisture-wicking lining and dual adjustable hook-and-loop closures.

17. REAX Fulton Air Riding Shoes

The REAX Fulton Air is a casual-looking riding shoe offering basic foot protection. The shoes are made of perforated full-grain leather with triple stitching and a dual compound soul with EVA mid and a durable rubber outsole.

The fully-padded top collar provides a high-top look and a flexible Achilles panel for improved comfort.

The heel and toe box are reinforced while the ankles are covered by protective cups. The padded tongue is gusseted and webbed to help keep the flat laces secure.

Other features include a replaceable insole, reflective material on the back of the heel and a moisture-wicking lining.

18. REAX Fulton WP Riding Shoes

The Fulton shoes are also available in a waterproof version with a breathable membrane beneath the full grain leather to keep your feet dry.

The Fulton WP shoes are available in black with a brown sole or the black/red/white version pictured her with a red sole, which makes for a flashier look than REAX’s typically understated style.

19. REAX Tasker WP Boots

For a more rugged look, REAX offers the waterproof Tasker boot. Made from oiled full grain leather with textile inserts, the Tasker WP looks more like a work boot or hiking shoe than the high-top sneaker look of the Fultons.

The Tasker boots offer a waterproof inner membrane, and a Goodyear welt stitched a high-traction lug sole. Protective features include internal medial and lateral ankle covers, a reinforced heel and a reinforced toe box.

Other features include a removable anatomic shock absorbing insole, a padded and gusseted tongue, reflective patches at the heels, and a quilted Achilles panel. The left boot has a leather shift pad.
