Richa’s new Gore-tex gear

Bel­gium-based kit com­pany joins forces with Gore-tex to launch a brand new range of all-weather tex­tile kit

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week - Q­

Richa have launched a new range of pro­tec­tive clothing that will in­cor­po­rate Gore-tex for the first time. Pre­vi­ously Richa have only used GoreTex in their gloves, but the Bel­gium firm have now been ap­proved to fea­ture the wa­ter­proof, wind­proof and breath­able tech­ni­cal layer in jack­ets and trousers too. The new range will in­clude four jack­ets and two pairs of trousers, and will be on sale in deal­ers this month.

At the low­est end of the range is the new all-sea­son Cy­clone jacket (£399) and match­ing trousers (£299). The Cy­clone utilises a three-layer sys­tem of a fixed Gore-tex liner un­der­neath a tough abra­sion-re­sis­tant outer ma­te­rial and a re­mov­able ther­mal lin­ing. There is D3O ar­mour at the shoul­ders and el­bows, and also a Level 1 Ce-cer­ti­fied back pro­tec­tor. The Cy­clone comes in three colour op­tions – black, grey and black/fluro – and has a 360° zip to at­tach to the trousers.

The flag­ship prod­ucts of the new range are the At­lantic jacket (£599) and trousers (£399), which rep­re­sent the ul­ti­mate tour­ing tex­tiles and fea­ture Gore-tex’s lam­i­nated outer shell ma­te­rial. There’s also a full com­ple­ment of D30 ar­mour, sep­a­rate ther­mal in­ner jacket, and an eight-vent cool­ing sys­tem. It’s avail­able in either black or grey. The new Gore-tex range also com­prises a more ca­sual jacket for ur­ban rid­ers, called the Madi­son (£399), and an ad­ven­ture-fo­cused of­fer­ing called the Ata­cama (£499).
