Richa’s 2017 riding kit has hit our inboxes and your local bike shops. For 2017 the clothing manufacturer has adde a licensing Gore-Tex to their range, . Both of the new adventure suits are also fitted with D3O armour and come in two completely different styles.

The lower price point Cyclone utilises a 3-layer system with a detachable thermal liner and gore-tex liner. The more expensive Atlantic series is made of laminated Gore-Tex, ditching the need for a liner. It’s also packed with D3O armour and uses Armacor Gecko abrasion resistance. On paper the kit looks really nice. There looks to be plenty of well thought out details, good material selection and generally inoffensive aesthetic. We’ll have a test on both sets in the coming months, so watch this space.
