RST GT Airbag CE Leather Jacket 2973 (Black)
Approved to the highest in safety standards, the RST GT Airbag jacket has received a CE Approved rating of AAA, the highest rating available. Created from a drum dyed full grain Brazilian cowhide leather, the GT jacket is a road focused airbag jacket, that is ready to tackle the road at a moment’s notice. The ergonomic cut of this jacket makes for a comfortable jacket that makes road riding easier and safer. With the inclusion of an airbag system, this GT jacket is longer in length than that of the standard GT leather jacket, ensuring that when the airbag goes off, your lower back doesn't become exposed as the jacket rises.
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 jacket has achieved a CE approved AAA rating and it’s easy to see why. The Brazilian cowhide leather construction of this RST jacket makes for high abrasion resistant material which is coupled with Level 2 protection at the shoulder and elbows with a CE approved In&Motion Back Protector which houses the In&Box for the airbag system. These strategically placed protectors effectively dissipate impact energy in the event of an accident. The strategically placed pockets for the CE approved level 2 armour stop the armour from moving around, ensuring that the armour is always in the right place when you need it most.
The three-dimensional bubble mesh lining found within the jacket allows for increased air circulation within the jacket, keeping you cool as you ride. Perforated panelling on the jacket is found at both the front and rear of the jacket, allowing for a direct cool air flow into this RST jacket, as well as allowing the warm, stale air to escape from within the jacket, keeping your base layers fresh and dry ready for when you arrive at your destination.
This leather jacket features the same TPU shoulder cups as the premium RST racing leathers, which are ergonomically shaped and positioned to reduce the friction coefficient that causes leather to catch the tarmac. The TPU shoulder cups have a lower fiction coefficient than that or carbon shoulder cups, allowing for a more controlled slide should the situation demand it.
This leather jacket features large accordion style stretch panelling, allowing for a free range of movement, unrestricted by the rigidity of the material used. This makes for a much more comfortable fitting jacket, both on and off the bike. The waist of the jacket features a Velcro adjustment, letting you tailor the fit of the jacket to suit your body shape. A large leather area at the base of the jacket minimises exposure of the small of the back on the jacket when riding in a tucked position.
The jacket features a 360° connection zipper for zipping into the RST GT Leather Trousers and other compatible RST trousers. This connection zipper limits the warm air escaping from within your jacket and trousers when riding in the cooler months of the year as well as stopping the small of your back from becoming exposed in the event of a slide across the tarmac. A MAX zipper runs through the centre of the jacket for a secure and reliable closure of the jacket along with all pockets, both internal and external.
* Using the In&Motion airbag system in a non-compatible combination could cause the system to malfunction in the event of an accident.
** The In&Box warranty applies only if the system is used under appropriate conditions. On track (approved closed circuit), the ‘track mode’ must be activated.
