The folks at Roland Sands invited us to join them for their 2016 apparel line up release party. We got to see some awesome custom bikes , mingle with industry pals, and see the RSD shop in all its glory, including some really nice new gear for this year. Here are a few items we wanted to take home:

The Zuma leather jacket is made of top grain “Oily Buffalo” leather (yes, real buffalo). With an RSD race hump, pre-curved sleeves, dropped back, relaxed collar opening and stretch nylon sleeve inserts, the Zuma is styled for more aggressive riding. Zippers at the cuff and pockets keep things contained, while adjustable waist tabs keep the rider cinched in. SAS-TEC CE certified Level 2 shoulder and elbow armor, and foam back protector are included for added safety. RSD logo in low contrast stitching across the chest, and embossment on the shoulders, add to the jacket’s style. Available in black and Timber in men’s sizes S – 3XL, for $750.

The Clash Black Ops jacket borrows name from last season’s Clash jacket, with a few upgrades. The Black Ops is cut from RSD Combat leather, a hand finished oiled and waxed top grain cowhide. Quilted styling at shoulders and back give a classic retro look. Shorty snap relaxed collar, pre-curved sleeves, and dropped back length provide comfort on and off the bike. Shoulder, elbow, and back armor is optional, while elbows are reinforced with rivets. The most striking accent of the Clash Black Ops jacket are the water-repellent YKK zippers, giving the jacket an extra aggressive technical aesthetic. The Clash Black Ops jacket comes in men’s sizes S – 3XL, and one color: black. Price: $750.
