Meet REV’IT!’s First Ever Women’s ADV Team

Four women ADV Riders will represent REV'IT! and help field test gear for 2017.

Published on 02.27.2017

Last year 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.

Four lucky riders have now been chosen to represent the REV’IT! brand in 2017 as its first-ever all-female ADV team, following an exhaustive search that pulled candidates from across the country.

Finalists from over a hundred 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.


The REV’IT! Women’s ADV Team will play an essential role in field testing current and upcoming women’s ADV gear, both in everyday rides and at a series of off-road appearances and events in 2017. At the end of the season, these women will have the opportunity to meet in-person with the REV’IT! team of designers in New York City to give first-hand feedback and recommendations.

Meet the extraordinary new team of sponsored riders below:


Amelia Kamrad @millieonthemove learned to ride in 2008 on a 1974 Honda CB550 barn rescue, and has since owned and ridden every two-wheeled iteration from a scooter to a Suzuki Bandit. She discovered a love for the ADV community in late 2013, hooked since her first go onto dirt roads and trails, and has since become a regular fixture at ADV and Dual Sport events and offroad trainings all along the East Coast. Amelia currently rides a Husaberg 390 and is based out of New Jersey.


Erika Bartz@bmwmotorcyclegirl began riding at the early age of eight, and her motorcycle adventures have since taken her through the same number of countries: From Arizona through Baja all on to the Guatemalan border; over the Alps in Austria and Slovenia; through the great Pyrenees of France and Spain; and along the Adriatic coast of Croatia. Erika currently rides Betty, a bumblebee-yellow BMW F650 GS, and lives in Arizona.


Marisa McInturff @She_Braaps started riding adventure and dual sport bikes at the age of 18, and just six short years later she boasts an impressive race resume, having participated in the Southern Off-road Racing Championship Series (Harescramble ) and the NASA RallyMoto Series. Marisa is a certified MSF Rider Coach and recently began instructing off-road riding clinics, specializing in women’s training. In her free time, she co-manages a website called MotoDuoAdventures and is a regular contributor to ADV Moto and Revzilla’s Common Tread blog. She currently lives in Tennessee and rides a KTM 950 Adventure.


Louise Powers @agirlonamotorbike began her riding career with an 8,200-mile trip to Alaska, and in the several years since has cultivated her passion by sharing her adventures in riding, camping, and exploring. She is currently the training coordinator for the Colorado GS Girls, and in 2016 she joined Mountain Moto as a coach. An avid hiker, rock climber, and trapeze artist, Louise chronicles her stories on her blog, Girl on a Motor Bike. Louise currently rides a BMW F700GS in her home state of Colorado.
