New colour and sizing options on the Richa GORE-TEX® Cyclone jacket

Following the incredibly successful launch of its collaboration with high-performance waterproof and breathable fabric brand, GORE-TEX®, Richa has introduced a fourth colour option and additional sizes on the popular and critically-acclaimed Cyclone jacket. It will now be available in a striking new Titanium grey colour and in sizes up to 12XL.

The Cyclone is an all-season jacket that provides 100% protection from the elements, thanks to a fixed GORE-TEX® Z-liner 3-layer membrane and a detachable thermal liner, which is easily removed with the smart layer zipper system. It also features the Richa Air Vent System (AVS) at the upper chest and arms, to allow air flow in the jacket.

The outer material – developed by Richa – is strong and durable, offering high density protection from impact and abrasion. Further protection is provided by CE-approved D3O armour at the elbows, shoulder, knees and hips, plus a level one back protector, which comes as standard with the option to upgrade to level two. 3M reflective welding areas on the front area, arm and back zones improve visibility.

The jacket connects to the Cyclone GORE-TEX® trousers via a 360° YKK® zipper. A separate suspender system is also available and can easily be fixed with the 360° YKK® zipper system. The smart collar loop system ensures a fixed position when using the jacket with the front central YKK® unzipped.

The jacket is available in the three original colour options – Black, Fluro Yellow and Grey – plus the new Titanium darker grey option for 2018. It will now be available up to a 12XL with RRPs starting at £429.99. The trousers, which come which come in a choice of colours and lengths – have an RRP from £329.99.

Notes to editors

Since 1956, family-owned Richa has been pushing technical boundaries and aiming to work with brands that take rider safety as seriously as they do. The company already uses GORE-TEX® in a selection of its gloves, and has now been approved to use the material in a range of jackets and trousers.

GORE-TEX® products are known for providing long-lasting, comfortable weather protection and carry a GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY® promise. The waterproof and breathable fabric membrane was invented in 1969 and has become synonymous with waterproof fabric.
