The R-16 is a race, leather jacket - an improved version of the popular leather R14 Jacket from RST. Constructed using full grain leather the jacket is precision cut to 1.1mm - 1.3mm providing a substantial layer between you and the floor in an off. This works along with the CE approved armour to the shoulders and elbows, providing impact and abrasion resistance in the event of an accident.
This leather jacket option is perforated in areas where impact is less likely to allow air to flow through and keep you cool. This works in combination with the fixed mesh lining which keeps the jacket from clinging as you become warm. Each seam of the jacket is constructed using either double or triple stitching formed with strong bonded nylon to protect the jacket against bursting and the thread disintegrating in the event of an accident.
With a profile street fit the R-16 jacket benefits from large accordion stretch panels to the back of the shoulders and four-way stretch fabric. These are strategically located in areas where more movement is needed so you have flexibility for a smoother ride.
The R-16 is a protective, stylish jacket, but also provides a race hump to improve your aerodynamics for a smooth ride. You can wear the jacket alone or team it with RST jeans (attachable at the waist using a 360° connection zipper).
