Rynox Storm Evo Gear Review

By Karan Singh | on September 14, 2022

We test Rynox’s Storm Evo range of riding gear, including the brand-new Storm Evo 3 full-gauntlet gloves. And here’s what we think about it…

Storm Evo Jacket

The Storm Evo jacket gets Knox Microlock CE Level 2 protectors for the shoulders and elbows, a Knox Microlock CE Level 2 back protector, and a Knox Microlock CE Level 1 chest protector. In terms of abrasion resistance, it gets 600D PU coated polyester construction, Invista Cordura panels on the shoulders and elbows, and an external slider on the shoulders. All these will have to speak for themselves at the moment, but the jacket is, without a doubt, comfortable and a good option for all-season touring and city riding. It might strike you as a bit on the heavier side when you first wear it, but the weight is well-balanced and quickly disappears once you get going. You can adjust the fit according to your liking, thanks to girth adjusters on the arms, waist, and cuffs. Plus, the ventilation is fantastic – I had noticeably more sweat patches after riding in similar conditions while wearing the old Rynox Air GT mesh jacket. The fact that you can get a winter liner, or add a rain cover on top, makes it a complete package.

Price – ₹10,750

Xite Rating – 4.5/5

Storm Evo Pants

With a Knox Microlock CE Level 2 Certified knee and shin protector and a Knox Microlock CE Level 2 Certified hip protector, the Storm Evo pants put as much priority on impact protection as the jacket and the gloves. You also get Rynox’s KneeSlap technology here, which allows you to place the knee protector perfectly. For me, the knee + shin protector rarely seems to fall into the right place though. But that’s the only hair in the soup for an otherwise solid product. With 600D PU-coated polyester, it is abrasion resistant. The ventilation here is more than adequate, even in peak summer, and with girth adjusters for the waist and bottom hem, you can spend long hours in this pair of pants.

Storm Evo 3 Gloves

The Storm Evo 3 gloves come with full-leather construction, Knox Impact SPS protectors for the scaphoid bone, a carbon fibre slider on the wrist, a CE-certified overhanging knuckle protector, and finger and thumb joints. Thankfully, I haven’t had an opportunity to test the effectiveness of any of those, but I can tell you that the gloves feel secure. The fit is snug right out of the box thanks to the pre-curved fingers and the bi-directional closure. I also like the touchscreen-compatible index finger. There’s some ‘hybrid stitching’ here, with external stitches in some areas to maximise comfort, but because there is some internal stitching as well, there is not really much of a difference. The leather, too, though soft, could’ve been even more supple. That said, the gloves do allow you to have a delicate grip on your handlebar, while still getting feedback. Plus, the comprehensive impact protection is reassuring.
