The design and development team at RST had a really tough job with the Blade 2 Jacket. As RST’s best selling leather jacket, the Blade leather jacket had a reputation for being an all round impeccable sports jacket, so they went out to try to improve and upgrade the RST Blade rather than starting from scratch. RST added loads of extra detail including a full length side stretch panel to the jacket, this gives more flexibility and helps with the fit.
Features such as perforated leather gives better ventilation and gives added seam strength. The race inspired TPU shoulder sliders are built in to aid with collarbone protection. The fact that the Blade 2 jacket comes with a level 2 CE certified back protector makes this a really decent and affordable sports leather jacket. You could upgrade to an external full length back protector with the Knox Aegis.
