The airbag leather suit for the everyman! Finally, the protective motorcycle airbag system comes to the masses, offering unparalleled protection and performance at a fantastic price point! With RST’s Sports fit profile, the RST Podium Leather Airbag Suit features all the protective properties of their airbag race suits combined with a relaxed riding profile for all day comfort and ergonomics.
A full grain cowhide leather construction makes for a familiar feel to the suit for those who have owned leather suit in the past. This full grain leather outer materials offers supreme strength and unparalleled abrasion resistant properties, making sure that you’re protected should the worst occur. The RST Podium Airbag suit has been designed with the In&Motion airbag system at the heart of the design. 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 Podium Airbag Suit, the airbag technology is fitted directly into the suit, inflating to cover the back and chest, maximising your safety should the worst occur. The benefit to fixing the airbag directly into the suit 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 suit, there’s no issues or hassle of fitting the airbag system into the suit. Fitting the In&Box into your RST airbag suit 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 racetrack. 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 suit 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 sports bike in the new RST Podium Airbag Race Suit 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 suit can withstand multiple detonations of the airbag vest, however in your best interests, RST recommend that the suit be returned after three detonations so that the suit 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 suit, simply release the canister from the jacket; this will activate a release valve within the airbag mechanism, slowly deflating the garment.
In addition to the airbag fitted to this leather racing suit, a full suite of CE approved armour can be found, fitted to strategically placed armour pockets. CE Level 1 Armour can be found at the shoulders, elbows and hips and knees with the inclusion of the CE Level 1 In&Motion back protector which houses the In&Box for the airbag protection system. Turn your attention to the shoulders and you’ll find RST’s instantly recognisable TPU shoulder cups, which help to stop the suit grabbing the surface of the road in that area, limiting any further damage in the event of an unfortunate spill. Velcro areas at the knees are included for you to add RST knee sliders, which are available as an optional extra. These knee sliders are hard wearing and available in a wide range of colours and sizes, as well as longer length wet weather knee sliders for those pushing the limits in wet weather conditions.
Despite the heavy-duty nature of this airbag leather race suit, there are also been careful considerations made in terms of rider comfort. A woven four-way stretch material can be seen in many places around the suit, such as a long length section that runs from the wrist, through the inner arm and up to the shoulder. This material is also found at the rear of the ankle and working its way up the crotch area of the suit. This material offers a stretchy feel and a very accommodating fit to the suit, a welcomed feature when riding aggressively or walking through the paddock. There are also extensive accordion stretch panels throughout this RST Airbag suit, most noticeably a full length panel at each side of the torso. This not only offers a greater range of movement but also ensures that the suit can reasonably expand should the airbag system be inflated in the event of an off. An aerodynamic race hump can be found at the rear, smaller in size that it’s more race focused brethren, the RST V4.1 Airbag Suit and the RST Pro Series Airbag Suit. Nevertheless, this aerodynamic race hump still helps to create an aerodynamic rider profile, perfect for sportier riding when the situation calls for it.
Ventilation is particularly important in leather race suits, and this is addressed through the inclusion of perforated panel ventilation throughout the suit, at both the front and rear. This allows masses of cool air to enter directly into the suit, as well as allowing the warm air within the suit to escape efficiently. Within the suit is a Quickdry mesh lining, which lets the incoming air circulate within the suit for full body cooling, a welcomed feature on particularly hot days. For additional comfort, the Neoprene race cuffs of the suit are very comfortable when closed, limiting the irritation that can be felt with substandard materials at this area. The same material is also found at the collar of the suit, making for a comfortable suit when riding or racing.
Available in Black or Black/White and in sizes 38” – 52”.
