With nothing more iconic to a rider than the motorcycle jacket, Roland Sands has decided less is more in his bold statement in women’s riding gear with the intentionally understated Quinn leather jacket. Throw in a proven track record for performance, protection and durability and you have a functional piece of art that is as unique as the riders themselves.
Coming from Roland Sands Design, a motorcycle, product and apparel company that has its roots in racing, custom bike building and design, the Quinn features a host of hidden features and subtle technical enhancements that take it from the realm of fashion wear to real riding gear.
“Women don’t necessarily want to look like a MotoGP racer but they want to be comfortable on the bike and look good” says Roland Sands, the former racer who has worn plenty of roadracing leathers in his day. “But make no mistake, this is a performance-fit riding jacket, not a fashion accessory.”
The Quinn jacket combines rotated, pre-curved sleeves and dropped back length with an aggressive riding fit.
“You will fall in love with the soft and supple top grain leather,” he adds. Unlike stiff race wear, the Quinn forms to your body and provides an ease in movement like you won’t find in an average riding jacket.
“Combine all this with our silky satin poly lining, perforated leather panel sleeve inserts and you have a jacket that is just as comfortable and sexy on or off your bike.”
RSD’s standard attention to detail means power stretch shoulder panels for ease of motion, a relaxed collar opening and zip close cuffs. Zippered panels at the waist enable the Quinn to conform to the curves for a custom-tailored look off the bike, while armor-ready pockets in the shoulders, elbow and back make it ready for action when you are on the bike.
