RST integrated airbag range of motorcycle clothing launched

RST has officially launched a range of motorcycle gear with integrated airbag technology for road, track, and adventure motorcycling

BRITISH company RST has announced a range of motorcycle clothing for multiple disciplines of riding that feature integrated airbag technology.

The products have been developed in partnership with In&Motion, who have analysed over 500 crashes from the world of MotoE, World Superbike, and British Supertwins to come up with what they believe is the ultimate in road and track safety.

Products included in the new range include the Race Dept V4.1 Airbag one piece leather suit, the Pro Series Adventure-X Airbag Textile Jacket, the GT Airbag Leather Jacket, and the GT Airbag Textile Jacket.

The airbags fitted to the RST range are designed to detect a crash about to happen, by analysing the rider’s movements 1,000 times per second. Once an incident is detected, the system will deploy the airbag, inflating it in less than 60 milliseconds.

Cleverly, the airbag tech used in the RST garments includes a degree of self-learning, with the In&motion App connecting to the airbag and acts like a dashboard. It continuously collects rider data during a crash and while riding to improve and perfect its algorithms.

RST In&Motion airbag range features, specs and pricing:

RST Race Dept V4.1 Airbag Leather 1PC Suit

Developed for the world's most extreme racing environments, the Race Dept V4.1 Airbag one piece is a true racing suit; constructed with a 60/40 split of the highest quality kangaroo leather and Grade A cowhide, with the In&motion integrated airbag technology built into the garment for maximum protection when you need it.

The 4-way stretch with leather motion panels, removable mesh lining and perforated leather support the kangaroo construction in offering a ventilated, comfortable fit.

Additionally, reinforced with Aramid protection and fitted with a full suite of level 2 CE certified armour and an In&motion CE back protector, the V4.1 leather suit exceeds the highest AAA CE rating. Reverse hook/loop factory knee sliders, elbow sliders and inner knee grippers further enhance the V4.1’s real racing pedigree.

Every V4.1 will also come with one years' complimentary racing algorithm upgrade.

The suit is available in black and in size range from UK 38-50 / EU 48-60

Intermediate sizes available by special order.

SRP: £899.99

RST Pro Series Adventure-X Airbag Textile Jacket

The Pro Series Adventure-X airbag jacket is a must have for all adventure riding. Upgraded for 2020, with input from legendary Dakar Rally finisher Mick Extance, (who knows what’s needed to make the best motorcycling jackets for adventure riding!)

This is a high specification jacket: It is double layered. Made from MaxTex – a lightweight high denier synthetic material that offers great protection and is comfortable to wear. Additionally, a Ballistic textile is overlaid over key impact areas along with the triple stitching using a coated bonded nylon thread offers increased abrasion resistance.

A new addition to the jacket is the new innovative and removable X-Liner – a singular lightweight lining which features the quilted thermal liner and the SinAqua waterproof membrane combined together. This can be removed easily and stored in the rear jacket map pocket. This along with the superior levels of ventilation in the form of the fixed comfort mesh lining and multiple chest, arm and rear vents ensure superb levels of air flow in and out of the jacket, keeping you cool as you ride.

Add in the class leading armour; it has a CE certification rating of AA and CE Level 2 back protector and shoulder, elbow and knee armour with a pocket for the hip armour along with the TPU shoulder cups as well as the In&motion integrated airbag technology and you have a garment ready to protect in the event of any impact.

And if that was not enough, hardwearing MAX zips are used throughout the jacket and there are stretch motion panels and adjustment points on the arm and waist to offer the most comfortable fit.

From huge ventilation points to CE armour, the RST Adventure-X airbag jacket is everything you need a textile adventure motorbike jacket to be and more!

The jacket is available in two colourways and in size range from UK 40-54 / EU S-5XL

SRP: £499.99

RST GT Airbag Leather Jacket

Using the highest quality drum dyed aniline cowhide, the GT takes leather jacket ergonomics and comfort to another

level. Comfort is further enhanced with panel-in-panel perforation and a 3D mesh lining ensures a full flow of air around the entire rider’s body. Exceeding the AAA CE rating, Level 2 armour is combined with subtle external shoulder sliders and the integrated In&motion airbag to offer the highest possible level of rider safety.

The jacket is available in black and in size range from UK 38-48 / EU 52-62

SRP: £499.99

RST GT Airbag Textile Jacket

The HTC abrasion resistant fabric offers a level of comfort and suppleness that is really noticeable when riding, a

SinAqua waterproof membrane keeps you dry, adjustable vents keep you cool when required and a full length removable thermal lining keeps the warmth in on those cold days.

If all that wasn’t enough add in the safety of Level 2 armour and an In&motion integrated Airbag and every box is ticked! Zip together with the GT textile jean for the ultimate sports touring textile jacket.

The jacket is available black and in size range from UK 38-52 / EU XS-4XL

SRP: £399.99
