Spring / Summer Collection

Spring is here and that brings with it the longer days, brighter nights and most importantly a new RST range. We've picked out some of our key 'warmer weather' products from the 2024 spring / summer collection below.

When it comes to riding in hot weather, choosing the right motorcycle gear is essential for comfort and safety. Summer-specific riding clothing, like jackets, jeans, and gloves, are designed to keep riders cool while still offering ample protection. Here are five key areas to consider when purchasing summer riding clothing.


Summer Motorcycle Clothing

Things to consider when looking AT warm weather riding gear.


Style: Summer motorcycle clothing comes in a variety of styles, from road and urban models to touring and race-oriented garments. When looking for any motorcycle clothing, you should look for a product most suited for your style of riding and use.

Primary Construction: The primary construction of summer motorcycle clothing is crucial in determining its quality and effectiveness. Common materials used in summer gear include textiles, mesh fabrics, and perforated leathers. Proprietary materials like CORDURA and Dyneema-infused fabrics are also becoming more popular and offer abrasion resistance that rivals traditional leather.

Secondary Construction: While the primary construction is important, secondary materials like sweat-wicking liners and reinforced overlays for high abrasion areas can also affect a garment's performance. They may also be used for trim or accents.

Armour: A crucial safety element of any riding clothing, armour protects against blunt-force impacts. Many different types of armour are available, with varying levels of protection and proprietary technology. Consider the placement of the armour, whether it is removable, and whether it is included with the garment.

Ventilation: Keeping cool in hot weather is essential for rider comfort, and ventilation is key to achieving this. Materials used in construction will impact airflow, but garments with additional ventilation and exhaust ports will improve comfort. Look for clothing with effective ventilation for maximum comfort and cooling.
