New GORE-TEX® textiles from Richa
Following the introduction of GORE-TEX® jackets and trousers to its range in 2020, Belgian motorcycle clothing specialist, Richa, has added four more items to its offering to help keep riders protected from the elements so they can focus on the ride.
Armada Pro GORE-TEX®® Jacket
Setting a new standard, the Armada Pro GORE-TEX® jacket is a three-layer laminate PRO GORE-TEX® jacket featuring newly developed injected mesh panels, YKK zippers and D3O® Level 2 protection at the shoulders, elbows and back.
Knowing that riders head out in all weathers, the jacket has been optimised for ventilation and waterproofing. Features including a storm flap in front of the central zipper and an optimal removable storm collar help keep riders dry. A soft neoprene collar and strategically-placed stretch panels contribute to a comfortable fit. It’s adjustable throughout – including: sleeve cuff widths, waistline and bottom.
To aid with ventilation, the Armada Pro GORE-TEX® has an ‘Airtech Control System’ so riders can meet their individual requirements. A Coolmax body lining helps on warmer days and for cooler days a Houdini primaloft jacket* can be added (*not included).
There’s plenty of room for riders’ possessions with five outside pockets- two of which are waterproof – and four inside pockets and a smart collar closure system. It also has an integrated removable and adjustable kidney -belt support system. The jacket can be attached to Richa compatible trousers or even the matching Armada Pro GORE-TEX® textile trousers with the short or 360° connection zipper.
Armada Pro GORE-TEX® jacket is available in black/fluro, black and grey/black, with an RRP from £999.99.
Armada Pro GORE-TEX® Trousers
The perfect match for the Armada Pro GORE-TEX® jacket are the matching Armada Pro GORE-TEX® Trousers. Designed with the same GORE-TEX® three-layer laminate PRO and coolmax body lining, the Armada Pro GORE-TEX® trousers are perfect for year round riding. Featuring strategically integrated leather patches for heat protection and Airtech Control system to provide ventilation at key areas, it’s no wonder why they are the flagship trouser in the Richa GORE-TEX® collection.
Available in both regular and short options, the new trousers provide an optimal fit with accordion stretch panels at both the upper knee and back side. There are adjustment straps at the lower leg and waist and D3O® protection at the knee and hip. The Armada Pro GORE-TEX® trousers have two outside waterproof pockets and a storm flap behind the central front zipper for extra protection.
Just like the Armada Pro GORE-TEX® jacket the trousers are made from Superfabric with Armacor 3L GTX PRO all working together to help keep moisture out. Aiding in the waterproofing of the trouser is the YKK zipper on the lower leg.
Removable braces are included and the trousers can easily be connected to a Richa compatible jacket with the short or 360° connection zipper.
The Armada Pro GORE-TEX® trousers are available in black/grey and black with a RRP from £699.99.
Perfect for all-weather riding, the Brutus jacket features a removable ‘in and over’ GORE-TEX® paclite plus 2layer jacket that helps protect riders in wet conditions – the membrane can be worn both over and under the jacket.
Made from Cordura 600D oxford fabric combined with ripstop panels, the jacket features a storm flap in front of the central front zipper for increased weather protection. With protection in mind, Richa has added safety stitching in key high risk areas and D3O® protection at the elbows and shoulders. An optional back protector and/or chest protection can also be added.
The Airtech Control ventilation system and 3D mesh panels on the chest help keep riders cool when needed and a YKK Cam lock zipper and magnet closure help to provide a secure fit.
The Brutus jacket can be customised to the riders preference with adjustable sleeve cuff widths and velcro waist and arm adjustments; there is also an adjustable elastic cord at the lower end for body tightening and a smart collar closure system. The Brutus jacket has three outside pockets and four inside pockets.
It has both a short and 360° connection zipper to connect the jacket to any Richa compatible trousers.
The Brutus jacket is available in black and grey/blue/red with an RRP from £539.99.
What better way to pair the Brutus jacket than with the Brutus trousers!
Made from the same Cordura 600D Oxford fabric, the Brutus trousers also provide hybrid waterproofing technology with a removable GORE-TEX® paclite plus 2layer liner and YKK zippers.
They feature 3D mesh panels at the front leg and the Airtech Control System, all added to create and control ventilation at key areas.
Available in a choice of short or regular lengths, the trousers provide an optimal fit with accordion stretch panels at the upper knee and back side as well as a smart stretch area at the back. A soft mesh lining provides a comfortable fit and two outside pockets offer storage for the essentials.
The Brutus trousers can be adapted to the rider’s comfort with adjustment straps at the waist and lower leg. There is also safety stitching in high risk areas and D3O® protection at the knee. The trousers have a short and 360° connection zipper so riders can connect compatible Richa jackets.
The Brutus trousers are available in black and grey/black with an RRP of £399.99.
