High end finish

Fits and feels like like top quality gear, I've ridden in the heat and didn't overheat in it. I've also got the same jacket in red and white and that's bedded in nicely

Best quality brand for the money

Sportsbikeshop is a perfect example of stress free internet shopping, First jacket was too large, contacted them, and Sally replied within the day and was extremely helpful with my queries exchanging the jacket.. New jacket came 2 days after the previous was received back.... and I'm very happy with my purchase...

Good jacket, seems to deal with heat okay

I'm 6 feet 2 and long in body. I have a 38 inch waist and a 44 inch chest measured tightly. The size 48 fitted in shoulders but was too tight on chest and gut. The size 50 was a wee bit loose on shoulders but fine everywhere else so went with that. Arm length good, waist length comes down to just past my belt line which is good due to my longer torso, jacket slightly longer on back. It needs a short zip too and jeans loops but these are little moans. Not sure about the perforations on front being effective as there's no escape on the back but I've been in 27c heat so far and on the move I've been cool without issue so they must work. The jacket appears well made and is heavy. Had to purchase back armor separately. The armor pouch is a bit small, I had to trim my D30 armor to fit. It's a bit stiff new but is slowly softening up through continued use. No regrets buying. I even think it would be great in winter with a waterproof over jacket on although it is a summer jacket. Two inner and two outer pockets is good. If you don't want it skin tight go at least one size up than your usual.

Comfy supple leather

I've only worn the jacket a couple of times and already it's forming itself nicely to my curvaceous frame

Nice product at a decent price

Wanted a jacket that was more focused for more spirited rides along with the r sport jeans. Great product without breaking the bank.

Well made

I bought this R-18 leather jacket to replace my old Arlen Ness jacket. Its roomier than the Arlen, well made, looks great and about half the cost. I just wish it came with a FF back protector which I have just ordered from Sportsbikeshop £18.00. Great service, very fast deliveries. All in all I'm pleased.

Product Specification


It's no wonder that the RST motorcycle clothing range is now one of the most popular ranges of bike kit in the UK. Their continued investment in racing, with a particular focus on BSB, has meant a constant development of product, which has translated directly to their road range. With the help of some of the biggest names in the BSB paddock, such as Tommy Hill, John Kirkham and Stuart Easton, RST have pushed the boundaries of what can be delivered through a brand that remains amazingly good value for money.
It also helps that the Derbyshire based design team are passionate about what they do; rigorously testing all RST clothing themselves. The team insist on riding all year round, despite the British weather, in order to put the RST textile range through its paces, and the fact that the team are keen track day enthusiasts, provides helpful real world testing of the RST leather range too. Their continued passion for design and innovation is highly apparent in this year's range and when you add to the mix the constant stream of positive feedback from our customers, it's easy to see why we have always covered the entire range of RST motorcycle clothing, and will continue to do so.

Questions and Answers

Questions and Answers

  • Hi. Am I gonna be cold with this one on? Is this a winter leather jacket? Same for the related trousers?

    January 10, 2019

    We would not recommend this leather jacket for summer use, as it is perforated for enhanced airflow. A textile jacket and jeans would be far warmer.

  • I'm just curious if the RST r18 jacket has a pocket for a back protector?

    June 19, 2018

    There is a pocket in this jacket which will accept a back protector.
