RST GT Airbag CE Mens Textile Jacket
RST GT Airbag CE Mens Textile Jacket
This functional, road focused textile jacket from RST features a sporty aesthetic with heaps of added functionality. The RST GT textile jacket is the textile twin of the RST GT leather jacket and shares much of the same functionality with additional features to make your life on the road easier.
For the first time, RST and In&Motion have partnered to combine one of the most dominant names in airbag technology with the performance of a leather motorcycle race suit. In&Motion are well known in the field of airbag technology, developing airbag vests for skiing, equestrian and motorcycle purposes, usually in the form of an airbag vest, worn on the exterior of existing clothing or as a vest worn underneath. However, with the RST GT Airbag Leather Jacket, the airbag technology is fitted directly into the jacket, inflating to cover the back and chest, maximising your safety should the worst occur. The benefit to fixing the airbag directly into the jacket ensures that the protection is in the right place at the right time, as well as RST’s development and quality assurance ensuring that the garments which the airbags are fitted to can withstand the additional strain and pressure of an airbag within, something some motorcycle garments would fail at.
Since the airbag system is already fitted to the jacket, there’s no issues or hassle of fitting the airbag system into the leather jacket. Fitting the In&Box into your RST airbag jacket is easy, with a dedicated cut-out within the supplied CE approved back protector; simply plug in and put on and you’re ready for the road. When the box is initially activated, you are entitled to 48 hours of protection for free, so you can get straight on your bike as soon as your new airbag leather jacket arrives. A subscription service is required to ensure that you remain protected, which can be completed at the In&Motion website and can be paid either monthly or annually, whichever you prefer. This subscription offers continuous optimisation with the latest algorithms and updates to ensure that the protection you are receiving is nothing but the best. When registering the In&Box with In&Motion, you are given the choice to activate the Track Option at an additional cost; the airbag algorithms within the In&Box are different between road usage and race circuits and requires changing depending on how you are using the jacket*.
The subscription also grants full access to the My In&Box app, which available on both the iOS and Android app stores. This application allows you to monitor the battery levels within the In&Box, ensure that the In&Box is properly connected, check whether there are any updates to the existing airbag software and more. The subscription also offers an unlimited guarantee**, giving you peace of mind that you’re investing in a quality piece of technology. Plus, thanks to the VIP service included with the subscription, if your In&Box does encounter any issues, you’ll be shipped a new In&Box from In&Motion straight away, even if you haven’t returned yours yet!*** The shaping of the box means that the In&Motion box can be used across the whole RST airbag range, meaning that you don’t have to purchase additional boxes and subscriptions. Head out on your sports bike in the new RST GT Airbag Leather Jacket one weekend, remove the In&Box and attach it to your new RST Adventure X Airbag Jacket and jump on board your adventure bike next weekend with ease.
The airbag leather jacket can withstand multiple detonations of the airbag vest within, however in your best interests, RST recommend that the jacket be returned after three detonations so that the jacket can be checked by RST. This inspection service is carried out free of charge by RST as part of their commitment to keeping you safe. Each detonation uses a pressurised canister to expand the airbag and keep you safe, which will need to be replaced after the detonation and are available to purchase separately. Once the airbag has been deployed, the garment will remain fully inflated for ten seconds before slightly deflating to 80% capacity, ensuring you remain protected when laid on the ground but subsiding enough for you to take the garment off. In order to fully deflate the airbag jacket, simply release the canister from the jacket; this will activate a release valve within the airbag mechanism, slowly deflating the garment.
The GT jacket is CE Approved and features a host of CE approved armour, strategically placed to protect you where you need it most. CE armour is found in the form of a CE Level 2 back protector, CE Level 2 shoulder armour and CE Level 2 elbow armour. This armour is secured in place with small dedicated pocket to ensure that the armour doesn’t move position when the armour is needed most. The Ballistic fabric construction is reinforced at key areas with a Maxtex material, offering superior abrasion resistance when subject to intense abrasion such as that of a slide across tarmac.
This waterproof motorcycle jacket from RST features a SinAqua waterproof lining, ensuring that water doesn’t enter the jacket when caught riding in the worst of the weather. This waterproof lining is closed with a waterproof zipper at the centre of the jacket, keeping the precipitation away from your base layers. The SinAqua lining of the jacket is also breathable, allowing water vapour (sweat) to escape from within the jacket, keeping you feeling fresh and dry within the jacket as well.
The RST GT jacket also features a removable thermal liner. This quilted thermal liner provided an extra layer of insulation, a welcomed feature in the cooler months of the year. The thermal lining can be easily removed from the jacket, leaving you with a lightweight summer motorcycle jacket. Reattaching the lining allows you to continue riding into the cooler months of year with ease. The 360° connection zipper found in the jacket allows for connection to the RST GT Textile Trouser or any compatible RST Trouser; this limits the heat escaping from within the jacket in the cooler months of the year as well as stopping the small of your back from becoming exposed should you find yourself sliding across your back along the tarmac. TPU shoulder cups on the jacket also allow for a more controlled slide, limiting the grabbing effect that can occur with other materials.
MAX zips are used throughout the jacket for a secure and reliable closure system; a central zipper closes the jacket as well as zipped exterior pockets. Internal pockets provide storage space for any items that you may need when out on the road such as mobile phone, wallet etc. The waist and arms of the jacket feature adjustment areas, allowing you to tailor the fitment of the jacket to suit your body shape. These adjustment areas are useful when the thermal lining has been released to provide the best fit for the jacket. Accordion stretch panelling found at the shoulder and elbows of the jacket allow for a free range of movement when riding but return quickly and efficiently to their regular position when off the bike.
