Some see this piece as a stripped-down softshell jacket, while others see a sleek thermal LS jersey. We see a little of both-it's a long-sleeve layer engineered to give you the right amount of protection and a perfect fit for full-gas race applications. It's easy to overdo the layers when the chill of spring and fall hits, especially when the level of effort is hovering around redline. We made the RS Jacket specifically for these scenarios, complete with a true aerodynamic racingFit, raglan sleeves, clean cuffs, and a tall collar. The cut informed the material selection, as we know that a second skin fit is enhanced with textiles that wrap and stretch with your arms and torso. The front panel is our Stratagon 1000 Stripes material, which deflects icy air and precipitation with its 2.5L PU bonded membrane. In other words, it's flexible, breathable, and effective at keeping your core temperature regulated when the burner is on high. For a touch of insulation, we included our brushed bi-stretch RX material along the tops of the arms, with Type.157 on the central back panel and underside of the arms for boosted breathability. In the back is our proven Triple Ramp Pocket system that locks in your cargo.
Stratagon 1000 Stripes: A patented 2.5L windproof and highly breathable softshell constructed with a PU bonded membrane for added water-repellency. Weight: 180g/m2; Water Column: >10,000mm; Elasticity: 4-way stretch.

RX: A brushed bi-stretch warp-knit fabric developed to wick moisture and add light insulation.

Type.157 Stripe Tex: Our proprietary breathable and stretchy circular knit textile with built-in UV protection and odorControl.

2W waistWave: Stitch construction on the waist preserves the natural stretch of the front panel's textile, absent of elastic material.

Triple Ramp Pockets: Flexible fabric panels sewn into each of the three pockets create"lids" for your cargo, covering the contents for added security and stability.

Full-Length Zipper: Temperature regulation courtesy of a lightweight full-length zipper with camlock.

Raglan Cut: Sleeve design free of a traditional shoulder seam, continuing up to the neck for greater range of motion.

racingFit: A fit that is tighter and slightly more compressive than our regularFit options. It may feel restrictive out of the riding position but feels like a second skin while riding, resulting in improved comfort and less drag.
