This is the Clash Leather Motorcycle Jacket from the team at Roland Sands Design. It’s been developed to work just as well as regular street wear or as a protective motorcycle jacket, with removable SAS-TEC flexible shoulder and elbow armor that can be adjusted when you go to ride.
Roland Sands and his team at RSD have made a name for themselves in recent years designing unique jackets and other gear, while building custom motorcycles for some of the world’s biggest manufacturers.
The Clash Jacket is made from 1.0-1.1mm thick full grain cowhide leather, it is hand finished, washed and oiled/waxed, and has a satin polyester lining for extra of comfort.
The jacket has an unusual offset front zipper and quilted accents on the shoulders and lower back. It also has riveted elbows, a cropped snap collar and an aggressive riding fit, with pre-curved turned sleeves, a dropped back length and a relaxed collar opening.
Long before starting his business, Roland Sands started out as a motorcycle racer. He enjoyed a successful career as a professional rider which culminated in his victory in the AMA 250GP National Championship in 1998.
After hanging up his riding leathers, he started RSD, and he’s become a regular on networks like the Discovery Channel thanks to his custom motorcycle build. The range of motorcycle gear and apparel developed by RSD has become a staple in the classic and vintage custom motorcycle world.
The RSD Clash Jacket is available in sizes from SM to 3XL and you can choose from three colourways: Oxblood, Tobacco and Black – we’ve included the Tobacco colourway here
