PRESS RELEASE: Race Face

For this year's Race Face Soft Goods launch, we put RF riders Wade Simmons, Dylan Forbes and Hailey Elise, along with photographer Margus Riga and videographer Connor Macleod, on a ferry to Vancouver Island. The intent was to soak up some Island Vibes while showcasing our new 2019 collection with some amazing riding in Sooke, Tzouhalem, and Mt. Prevost.


Keeping the wind at bay with RF outerwear.

The Race Face 2019 Soft Goods collection offers both male and female riders options to cover all styles. The collection is based around our key design principles: build with modern, cutting-edge fabrics with rider-focused features and patterning for advanced technical performance, combined with tasteful graphics, and colourway choices that range from subtle to full blast!


Men's Collection

2019 RF Softgoods Launch



The gravity-focused Ruxton kit has been fully redesigned for 2019, offering clean design lines, tech fabric choices and fresh graphics.
The jersey features fully sublimated graphics, a relaxed fit, and a low profile collar. The silky feeling warp knit fabric is silky smooth, quick-drying, and hard wearing.The shorts and pants feature the same patterning as previous years but with a new fabric that ups comfort and mobility.

The focus remains on rugged performance, with laser perforated panels for breathability and durability where it counts, race-ready inseam lengths and plenty of space to accommodate Race Face knee guards underneath.

The all new Ruxton glove features durable contoured palms, knuckle protection and a durable velcro wrist closure, not to mention conductive fingers for those lift-line selfies!

It features a lightweight short sleeve jersey with sublimated graphics, subtle perforations in the body and sleeve fabric, plus mesh side panels for a comfortable feel on those long days in the saddle.

The Indy kit is our long-running, all-round trail kit.

The Indy shorts continue with our 2018 design but with improved fit and better performance thanks to a longer inseam. Indy gloves feature fade-free sublimated graphics and a contoured Amara single-piece palm and finger to give you a lightweight, durable grip.

A chill, all-around trail kit, the Trigger features fresh graphics on the breathable, quick-dry tech tee-style jersey plus new colourways offerings like Rust and Loam in the 4-way stretch, lightweight shorts.

The Nano jacket is the ultimate pack-light jacket for both men and women.

Lightweight, water- and wind-resistant, and packs into its own pocket for portability. This 3/4 zip, pullover-style jacket is available in a men's and women's version with a left chest storage pocket, perforated underarm panels for air flow, articulated sleeve patterning with extended cuffs, and a helmet friendly hood!





Women's Collection

On the women's side, the Khyber kit features our burliest women’s short for aggressive, gravity-fed riding, where extra abrasion resistance and durability is preferred. Asymmetrical exposed zips and snap closure pocket flaps add style. Inseam is 36 cm (below knee) with hem openings large enough to accommodate Race Face knee pads.

 I really like RF stuff. I don't own one of their jerseys (not a huge bright jersey wearing dude), but all my shorts are all Raceface. I know a 34 waist or a size large will fit me. Every time. Vs every other brand where I'm somewhere between a medium or a XXXXXXXL. I have 4 pairs I rotate through. Indy's, Triggers, two pairs of Stages. I had some seams rip on shorts after 4+ years of riding and the odd zipper fail, but nothing lasts forever. I like my Indy shorts so much I had the ripped seam sewed back up by a tailor for like $10. Good as new. Trigger shorts are super comfy, long, and the stretch is unreal. My fav piece of gear is the Nano hoodie. Don't expect to stay dry in a downpour, you'll need a proper jacket for that, but it's an awesome superlight layer that packs down to nothing to throw on if you need to. I like the singular middle chest pocket, perfect for storing riding glasses if they're fogging up on the climbs.

 Yeah. Agree. RF just fits me great and lasts a long time. I'd buy whatever and try on other stuff but they build their gear around my slightly out of shape body type for sure!

 Agreed. Their shorts are pretty good. I have both a trigger and an Indy, and I will buy them again when they are completely ruined (I have them for 3-4 years and they are still okayish). The trigger is a bit fragile but it's the most comfortable short for pedaling in warm conditions I have had.
  • 1 0
 @zede: totally, Ive had the trigger for two seasons and I use it when it's super hot outside for pedally more xc-ish rides. I don't expect it to last a few hard crashes so I'd leave it at home if I were going to the bike park or shuttling. It also looks fine off the bike as a casual short too. I've gone rock climbing in them once and the stretch works well. The only thing I don't like about them is on strenuous technical climbs the material bunches a bit under my saddle as I move my weight around. It "sticks" and grips to my saddle instead of sliding over it like most other material. Not a deal breaker, but I'd rather have my stage or Indy if I'm ratcheting up some brutal stuff all day.

 Unless you are getting paid to advertise, these products should not look like billboards!

 It all looks pretty subtle to me. Did you mean this as in "good, no big logo bullshit" or "bah, too many logos?"
  • 3 1
 Next years line will have neon lights spelling out Raceface. We are already carrying 7 other batteries on bikes now so why not one more to represent a brand you paid full price for.

 I wish they could do correct sizing. There xl is more like a medium. Not all mtb bikers are 5’6
  • 12 13
 That's the least of their problems. Still charging outrageous prices for hideous clothing. when's that trend going to go away? Make some good looking reasonably priced clothing.
  • 9 1
 @TimRidesBikes: Prices over here seem on par with most other brands of the same quality. Can you give an example?
  • 15 11
 Such low quality clothing. Just take a look at the way they do seams and stitching.
  • 1 0
 I don't think it's so bad; it's around mid-quality in my experience. My RF stuff holds up well and I'm liking the look of this year's collection better than any other brand so far.

For low quality, I always find Royal to be at the bottom, IMO. I can't believe it's even on the racks next to the others and at the same price points.
  • 1 0
 @tripleultrasuperboostplusplus: yes royal stuff is the worst. Had a pair of waterproof shorts that lasted maybe 3 rides before the tape and seams were falling apart.
  • 1 0
 My race face ambush shorts are very over built, I can't imagine them falling apart any time soon, especially since the material on the inside pulls my leg hair so I rarely wear them. . .

 "and a fun way to show off your most colourful sports bras!"
Wow... That's exactly what I look for in a cycling jersey. Thanks RF!
  • 3 2
 Funny... I just thought about it and in all the years I've ridden a mountain bike I've never owned anything from Raceface other than components and knee pads. This stuff looks ok, except for that first shiny jersey.

 yeah . . . first thing i do after getting my sweatty gloves off is enjoying a good old 40 percenter . . . the marketing guys nailed it once again

 If it's good enough for Wade tup

 Then it's good enough for Wade... not for those who suppose to pay they money for that stuff.

 Ooooh, Dylan Forbes. He's sooooo sexy.

 Basically a Fox 40. The Grip2 damper will fit inside, if desired.

 All the soft goods you need that are biking specific is shorts and gloves.
  • 14 17
 That shiny turquoise jersey is particularly nasty. Race Face just need to give up on soft goods. Life is better without their boil-in-the-bag jackets, knee pads that slide down when you crash & ugly jerseys.
  • 7 0
 And gloves that obliterate mid ride...
