Meet the New REV’IT! Women’s ADV Team 2019

 Five women ADV Riders will represent REV'IT! and help field test gear for 2019.

REV'IT! Women's ADV Team

Recently our friends at REV’IT! put out a call looking for exceptional women riders to represent their brand and better spotlight the contributions of female riders to the ADV segment. Candidates would have excellent off-road riding abilities, an established social media following and a schedule that allowed for frequent travel to independent rides and rallies.

Following an exhaustive search, two new lucky riders have now been chosen to join the 3 existing REV’IT! Women’s ADV Team members: Katelyn Barnecut and Kris Fant will join Erika Tango Bean, Amelia Kamrad and Jenna West to represent the brand for the 2019 season.

Finalists from a large pool of applications were chosen based on their combination of passion, leadership, riding ability, and sheer grit. The team’s collective riding resume encompasses tens of thousands of miles over more than a dozen countries through multiple terrains, and each member is an embodiment of the “ADV” spirit.

REV'IT! Women's ADV Team

The REV’IT! Women’s ADV Team plays an essential role in field testing current and upcoming women’s ADV gear and will represent the brand individually at adventure events, rallies, trainings and dealer nights across the country, coming together for one main team event in the summer. In addition to amplifying the presence of the brand at on-site events, the five female ambassadors will also provide direct product feedback to REV’IT! designers located in Oss, The Netherlands.

Meet the extraordinary 2019 team of sponsored riders below:

KATELYN BARNECUT

REV'IT! Women's ADV Team

In 2011, Katelyn Barnecut aka @distant.tracks saved a pristine BMW F650GS from its tragic street life and unleashed the bike on nearly a decade of dust, mud and dirt track adventures. In riding motorcycles, she found the perfect link between outdoor adventure and world travel. Drawn by the simplicity and freedom of living off the bike, she feels there is no better way to explore both back home and around the globe. After recently completing a 13,000 mile ride across Africa, Katelyn is now living in Colorado chasing the high altitude tracks of the Rockies.

KRIS FANT

REV'IT! Women's ADV Team

Kris Fant aka @freespiritpixie started riding dirt and street separately in 2012, but combined the two into one with a dual sport in 2013. Kris loves commuting to work on her DR650, going down unpaved Portland alleys on her way home, and hitting the trails on the weekend. Doing BDR’s while camping off her bike with her husband nurtures her soul. She loves to tell people’s stories and to volunteer at events; read her work at www.womenadvriders.com, or say hello this summer at the Touratech Rally West or the 49er Rally!

AMELIA KAMRAD

REV'IT! Women's ADV Team

Amelia, aka @millieonthemove, learned to ride in 2008 on a 1974 Honda CB550 barn rescue, and discovered a love for the ADV community in late 2013. Hooked since her first go atop dirt roads and trails, she has since become a regular fixture at ADV, Dual Sport, and Enduro events all along the East Coast. Amelia contributes to ADVMoto magazine, RevZilla’s Common Tread, and participates in NASA Rally races. Amelia currently rides a Husaberg 390 and is based out of New Jersey.

JENNA WEST

REV'IT! Women's ADV Team

@jensmotoadventures started riding almost a decade ago, and toured the US a few times atop a Yamaha FZ6R. Though it was a thrilling experience, she craved a new adventure. Jenna then decided to trade it in for an adventure bike at the beginning of 2016. And she never looked back. She has since ridden it on multiple trips across the US and Canada, leaving the pavement every chance she can get. In addition to adventure riding, she also has a passion for restoring and riding vintage Honda motorcycles. Jenna lives in Indiana and currently rides a Triumph Tiger 800 named Tora.

ERIKA TANGO

REV'IT! Women's ADV Team

@bmwmotorcyclegirl began riding at a young age but made the transition to adventure bikes in 2012. Her favorite part about her GS is being able to carry everything she needs for camping, cooking, and sight-seeing along the way. Having travelled to eight countries on two wheels, she feels that the sights, smells and intimacy of being on a motorcycle changes a trip into an adventure. Traveling the world one section at time, whether it is a quick weekend trip or a rare month long journey, she hopes to expand the female ridership in the ADV community and to inspire other riders to explore their own adventures. Erika currently rides Betty, a bumblebee-yellow BMW F650 GS and lives in Arizona.
