The 2014 RSD Riding apparel collection represents a stylish approach to functional riding gear. From the classic waxed cotton Clarion coat, the riveted rocker-inspired “airborne” Clash leather jacket and the traditional biker styled "rifle" cowhide City jacket, the new Roland Sands Design Apparel collection is high-end riding gear. It is the constant struggle between functionality and aesthetics that gives the RSD riding apparel its unique look and wearability on and off the bike.
Each piece has been crafted with protection and rider function as a priority, with technical elements such as pre-curved sleeves, shoulder gussets and armor pockets that are organically integrated into every piece in the 2014 collection.
"There’s nothing like jumping on your bike and hitting the road," Roland Sands says. "Life can get complicated at times and the simple, but vital task of keeping yourself upright on two wheels has the effect of refueling your soul. It’s with this in mind that we conceptualize, design and build our riding gear. Stitch by stitch, seam by seam, from hand-treated leather to waxed cotton and denim, we layer and assemble our rider-driven apparel collection."
