Sprint Jacket

Richa Moto Fashion

The windproof and waterproof Spirit jacket and pants by Richa are true 4-season riding gear, designed for comfort and performance in all weather conditions. At the core of the Spirit gear is the c_change climate-sensitive membrane that makes the apparel extremely breathable and highly responsive to changing temperature. As a rider’s body gets warmer, the cells of the membrane open to allow heat to escape and airflow to increase; as the body cools down, the cells close to retain heat. Proprietary outer Dynatec fabric is highly abrasion-resistant and finished with NanoSphere to repel water, dirt and oil. Liquids run easily off the surface before they saturate the fibers, keeping the Spirit jacket and pants clean and dry in any riding condition. The jacket offers five pieces of CE approved armor, while Reflex retro-reflective patches on arms and back enhance visibility to other drivers.


Retail Price: Jacket: $699.99; Pant:$579.99
