RST sign MotoGP Test Rider

RST is delighted to announce the signing of Suzuki Ecstar MotoGPTest Rider and Suzuki Endurance Yoshimura SERT Motul Racing team rider, Sylvain Guintoli.

The 2021 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race winner will wear RST’s flagship airbag suit using In&motion’s airbag technology.

Guintoli will debut his RST suit from Monday 31st January during testing for the 2022 season in Malaysia.

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.”

Zoe Turner, Race Department Manager, 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.”
