NEW GEAR: RST’s X-Raid Textile Jacket and Trousers

British motorbike clothing manufacturer RST has bolstered its adventure range for 2019, with the launch of a new textile suit; the X-Raid.

Taking inspiration from technical military gear, RST’s new textile suit is predominantly aimed at adventure bike riders who rely on their gear to protect them out on the road (and occasionally off-road too).

Priced at £259.99 for the jacket and £219.99 for the trousers, the new X-Raid textiles sit just under the British manufacturer’s flagship Adventure III textile range. Made from Ripstop and Ballistic material to provide strong abrasion resistance – and for protection against impact, come with CE level 2 back, shoulder, elbow and knee armour included as standard. There are also pockets for hip protectors – though you’ll need to buy the armour separately.


The X-Raid gear features a fixed waterproof drop lining, a removable thermal lining, and plenty of vents and pockets, as well as a map pouch. And it also comes with army-style straps sewn into the left breast, which allows a removable pouch to be clipped into place, providing storage for keys, a wallet or phone – and there is also a small pocket designed specifically to hold keyless ignition fobs.
