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
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.

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!
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.
