RST signs Sylvain Guintoli for 2022

Sylvain Guintoli, Yoshimura SERT Motul Racing team rider & 2021 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race winner, has signed for RST and will wear RST branded race suits for the 2022 seasons. 

His custom RST airbag suit with In&Motion airbag technology will be first seen from Monday the 31st of January during testing for the 2022 season in Malaysia, and the flagship race suits will be worn in both Suzuki MotoGP testing and 2022 EWC season by the French rider.

Speaking on signing for RST, Sylvain Guintoli said:

“The racing products and the airbag technology has been moving on a lot in recent years. It feels like the right time. Everything is working well at RST right now and the suits are getting better and better. When you crash at 150mph, you need to have a suit that is going to take the abuse, take the sliding and tumbling. It’s very important, not only performance, but for the safety of the riders.

“I’m looking forward to seeing the different designs, because obviously I have different hats during the year. The sketches on paper are looking really good, so I’m looking forward to seeing the suits. 

“I think it’s going to be really interesting to work together. I’m just happy to be racing and to be competing, and to be doing this sport that I really love.”

Zoe Turner, Race Department Manager for RST, said:

“It’s a fantastic signing for us. We’re so proud that a rider of Sylvain’s quality has trusted RST with his race suits for 2022 and we’re looking forward to supporting him in the MotoGP and EWC season.”
