RSD “Assaults” the Status Quo

Wool/Leather Hybrid Jacket Now Available

LOS ALAMITOS, CA – May 16, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Tired of the same old thing? The new “Assault” jacket from Roland Sands Design upsets the apple cart while still combining motorcycling tradition with functionality and style. Not just another “me-too” bit of kit, the Assault utilizes a heavy wool body with strategically placed leather accents. By mixing these complimentary materials, the Assault offers the perfect blend of style and performance, according to RSD.

“With a water repellent finish, natural breathability and comfort, the choice of wool makes sense, says racer-turned designer, Roland Sands. Classic lines blended with subtle features make it uniquely RSD. “With forward rotated, pre-curved sleeves, a bomber-style waistband and shoulder gussets for mobility, the Assault is a great everyday jacket,” suggests Sands. “It is perfect for those summer casual rides.”

The relaxed café collar and RSD “numbers” embossed in the satin liner are among the styling cues that remain true to Roland’s racing roots. “The wool-leather combo is a classic, and provides excellent breathability for warmer weather, while the leather provides structure and a measure of protection for those casual rides.” Don’t go with the status quo! Get the Assault instead:

Roland Sands was just 5 years old when his parents first put him on a motorcycle, and there has been no stopping him ever since! His love of speed on two wheels took him to the professional racing ranks for 10 years. He set multiple track records around the world and was the 1998 American Motorcyclist Association 250GP champion. However, 32 broken bones later, Roland decided to trade in his racing leathers for paper, pencil and a computer designing products for noted motorcycle wheel manufacturer, Performance Machine. He founded RSD in 2005 and continues to shake up the motorcycle industry to this very day. Roland and his bikes have been featured in more than 400 magazine articles worldwide, including 100+ cover stories. RSD projects have also appeared on television segments broadcast on MTV, SPEED Channel, ESPN2, Discovery Channel and the TLC networks. RSD has worked on custom bike projects with celebrities and athletes (Mickey Rourke’s latest motorcycle is in the RSD Design Center right now as well as customized Tony Hawk and Shaun White machines) and major projects with industry leaders, including Aprilia, Bell Helmets, Ducati, Dunlop, Honda, Toyota, Vance & Hines, Victory and Yamaha just to name a few.
