Innovation - VCS Aquadefence
Variable weather conditions are no longer a problem for riders wearing
a jacket equipped with a VCS | aquadefence system. This system
makes it possible to change the jacket from a fully ventilated jacket into
a 100% waterproof jacket in seconds - while riding!
With the thermal liner in and the vents closed the jacket is ready to
tackle fall and winter rides. But remove the liner and deploy the VCS |
aquadefence system, and youíre immediately ready for warm weather
touring without worry of overheating.
Motorcycle jackets are often equipped with a removable membrane,
offering you a choice between a ventilated jacket and a waterproof
jacket. With a jacket equipped with VCS | aquadefence technology -
you can have both.
Activate the VCS | aquadefence feature on hot days; air flows directly
onto the riderís body because there is no membrane behind the
ventilation opening to block the wind. When it starts raining you donít
have to stop and quickly zip your membrane into your jacket, you
simply continue riding and close the system with one gloved hand.
The ventilation area can be covered with either a waterproof zipper or
panel, and to make sure the water wonít creep in, a flexible rain gutter
has been incorporated between the ventilation panel and zipper making
it completely waterproof. The patent pending VCS | aquadefence
system perfects the balance between Ďon demandí airflow functionality
and total waterproofing.
REVíIT! developed two different systems, one with a VCS | zipper and
one with a VCS | panel, in which the VCS | aquadefence has been
incorporated. Both systems provide on demand airflow when opened
and 100% waterproofing when closed.
