Roland Sands Design releases their 2017 Fall collection with a focus on “armor expansion, innovative materials and unique styles that perform as well as they look.” Finally, it seems most of the new RSD jackets will include elbow and shoulder armor. 

Begin Press Release:


As the years roll by we find ourselves expanding our riders apparel collection to fit the needs of our motorcycle addiction. Two wheels is an easy inspiration. Freedom, exploration, friendship, fun and the continuous call of the open road are what we need to keep the midnight fires burning bright. We find there’s no end to the work, there’s no stopping point where we say this is the best it could ever be. It’s a continual process of improvement, learning from where we have been and putting that education to work in the development of our newest collection.

For Fall 2017 we’ve focused on armor expansion, innovative materials and unique styles that perform as well as they look. We’ve remained focused on delivering a lifestyle friendly collection that doesn’t compromise function. This is an idea we will continue to develop and one we feel you will appreciate.

Enjoy the journey.
