The coolest jacket around, and we’re not just talking about the styling! The RST F-Lite Airbag jacket is an incredibly lightweight ventilated jacket, offering a protective airbag motorcycle jacket that is perfect for the urban rider and your best friend in the summer months.
The outer construction of the RST F-Lite jacket is a combination of a hardwearing HTC textile fabric and a robust yet brilliantly breathable K540 mesh. The combination of these two materials results in a CE approved, abrasion resistant motorcycle jacket that flows and incredible amount of cool air into the jacket when riding, perfect for those sunny days in the city. The K540 mesh spans much of the jacket, including large panels at the front of the jacket, sides, arms and back, maximising the airflow into the jacket and allowing the air to flow effortlessly out the back.
Within this RST vented jacket lie dedicated armour pockets, with CE level 1 elbow armour and CE level 1 shoulder armour included as standard. There is also a CE level 1 back protector from In&Motion that houses the In&Box as well as the inflation cartridge for your airbag system. Passive protection comes in the form of subtle reflective areas and reflective logo detailing, allowing you to remain seen of the bike even when riding after dark, without compromising the minimalist appearance of this vented jacket. You’ll also find a windproof lining; this excellent windproof lining helps to minimise the effects of the windchill when riding in the spring, offering seasonal versatility from your new RST F-Lite Airbag jacket. This lining is easily removed with zippers and can fold up small enough to fit within your rucksack, under your seat or even one of the pockets of the jacket to be easily reattached when the situation calls for it.
Since the airbag system is already fitted to this RST textile jacket, there’s no issues or hassle of fitting the airbag system into the 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 roads! 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 suit*.
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 bike in the new RST F-Lite Airbag Jacket one weekend, remove the In&Box and attach it to your new RST Sabre Leather Airbag Jacket and jump on board your sports bike next weekend with ease.
The RST F-Lite Airbag Jacket can withstand multiple detonations of the airbag vest, 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.
For additional comfort, the RST F Lite jacket also includes a soft feel Amara fabric at the cuffs and collar, a welcomed feature when riding all day that limits irritation at these areas. This vented motorcycle jacket also features adjustment points at the waist and upper arms, allowing you to tailor the fit and feel of the jacket to suit your body shape. These adjustment areas come in the form of a Velcro adjustment belt at the waist and a popper closure at the upper arms, which allow you to tighten the jacket to reduce billowing at speed. You can also loosen them to help accommodate any additional layers underneath your jacket when riding in the cooler months of the year.
Zipped pockets at the front of the jacket allow for easy storage of any essentials that you may need when out and about in your new vented motorcycle jacket. You’ll also find a 360° connection zipper at the rear of the jacket, allowing you to zip the RST F-Lite jacket into any compatible trouser in the RST range, either leather, textile or denim.
Available in sizes 38” – 56”. Also available as a non-airbag garment too!
* 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.
