REV'IT! Seesoft Hip Protectors RV01
Seesoft Hip Protectors
When I first put them in they were very stiff. That being said, they would seem to offer a lot better protection than the typical foam hip pad you find in riding pants. They are breaking in somewhat and are becoming more comfortable. The best feature they have is the thinness. When the pads are in they are barely noticeable width wise. They fit a little too far forward but that is a function of the pocket design of the pants. To sum up; it's a durable, thin pad with a good price. I recommend them.

Easy to install in pants designed for this model
Fortunately, have not had to crash test but they feel like protection would be good. I have no cons other than I think they should come standard with Revit pants.

Perfect fit in the Rev'It! Airwave Overpants
Don't get me wrong, they fit exactly like they should in my pants, they are engineered well and look like they would provide adequate protection for the everyday rider, but I think they might be a little expensive for what they are, and I do wish they came with the pants. Otherwise, they contour well to my body after forming them a little, and I don't even notice them when I'm riding. Worth the extra money for the seamless integration of hip protection for the Airwave pants.

Protection adds peace of mind
I wear these in my Rev'it Enterprise pants. I feel more protected with them in. My pants have a windproof liner so I can't speak to airflow but they don't create a hot spot against my skin. They are a bit stiff when I raise my legs to put my feet on the pegs but they slide up over my hips and into a comfortable position once underway.

Difficult to get into pants
I bought these along with a pair of Women's Tornado Pants. It took a good deal of effort to get these into the sleeve on the hip of the pants but I eventually forced them in but once they were in they seemed to sit properly.
Other than that they seem fine. Didn't change the fit of the pants much from what I could tell.

But is it the right component? I bought this for my Rev'it Tornado pants. The stock foam is a different shape - it almost looks like an upside down version of the seesoft hip protectors. But when installing the hip protectors, the instructions tell you to install with the cut-out at the bottom...anyway, they still fit in the pocket, and they haven't changed the fit or comfort of the pants. Assuming I did get the right protectors, no complaints, price is right, and I feel safer.

I have this hip armor in my Rev'It Enterprise pants, and I've been riding with it for a couple months now. I don't even notice the armor anymore, and feel well protected. They are a bit of a pain to install, you have to fold them almost in half to fit them in the pocket, but once they're in they don't move at all.
Get these for ease of mind.

I can't really say much about this since I would have to fall off my bike and I hope that does not happen to see what kind of protection I get. These pads are for sure way better and sturdy than the ones that my Rev'it Tornado came with. I did have to trim the pads a little bit in order for them to fit my pants because my pants are the older model and did not have the Tryonic label.
