The ideal textile commuter jacket, the RST Alpha series has been a staple in the RST range for many years, symbolising great value for money for the commuter riders looking for a new textile motorcycle jacket.
Created in a hardwearing MaxTex textile construction, the RST Alpha 5 Jacket is protective by its very nature thanks to the abrasion resistant properties of the textile material. Couple this with a corespun polyester thread at the seams and you have a lightweight textile commuter jacket that won’t fail at the material or the stitched seams when subjected to the intense friction that one might experience in a slide across tarmac.
Beneath the surface of this textile motorcycle jacket lie dedicated armour pockets, designed to house CE approved armour to help dissipate impact energy at these areas. You’ll find CE Level 1 shoulder armour and CE Level 1 elbow armour as standard, with an additional pocket for a CE approved back protector should you choose to upgrade the protective properties of this commuter bike jacket.
Protection from the elements is key for commuters too. As such, the RST Alpha Five Jacket features a fixed SinAqua waterproof breathable membrane as standard. This waterproof membrane is microporous, featuring vast amounts of small holes that are too small to allow water molecules to pass through while large enough that water vapour (sweat) can escape from inside the jacket, ensuring that you remain fresh and dry inside your new RST jacket.
As a bonus, you’ll also find a 100g hollowfill thermal gilet, designed to help provide additional insulation at your core when riding in cooler temperatures, a welcomed addition for all weather riders. This thermal lining is removable, leaving a lightweight summer alternative with a fixed mesh comfort lining, designed to separate your skin from the outer textile material for increased comfort over many miles.
With the thermal lining removed, you’re free to make the most of the RST Alpha V’s ventilation points. With two front facing ventilation openings as well as two rear exhaust vents, you can maximise the cooling experience by allowing direct cool air flow into the jacket and letting the warm stale air efficiently exit the jacket while riding.
A neoprene comfort collar helps to maximise the comfort by minimising any irritation at this sensitive area. Additional adjustment points at the waist, gusset and upper arms help to tailor the fit and feel of the RST Alpha Five Jacket to help keep the heat in the jacket in the cooler months of the year and helping to reduce billowing at speed.
With five colours to choose from and a wide size range, you’re sure to find an RST Alpha Five Jacket to suit your size and style. For those looking for a two-piece commuter suit, you’ll be pleased to know that the RST Alpha Five jacket has a matching trouser too which pairs perfectly with the 360° connection zipper found in the jacket. Of course, the 360° connection zipper can be used to pair into any compatible RST trouser, both leather and textile.
