Race Face is stoked to launch its 2015 soft goods collection. As a brand driven by riders, Race Face strives to design durable, functional gear with just the right amount of style to complement your riding and elevate it to a new level. This season orange is the new rad. Here's a collection of returning favourites and new nuggets to help keep things fresh this spring.

Orange is the new rad
  New for 2015, the Stage kit combines retro moto styling with modern lightweight fabric. Rock it in orange...

Stage Jersey
  or a classic red, white and blue.

Indy Kit
  The versatile Indy kit gets on-board with a splash of orange style.

Jacket showdown
  A battle of the RF orange jackets! Tippie and the Chute jacket versus Wade and the Nano jacket. Who you pickin' for the win?

Nano Jacket Stage Shorts
  The lightweight, packable Nano jacket adds a slice of orange for 2015. Juicy.

  The trusted Ambush kit adds an orange short and black & white jersey to the mix.

Ambush Kit
  Remy rages against the roots in the Ambush Blue & Lime.

Tailgate Pad
  Transport bikes safely with the new RF pick-up pad, complete with a secure strapping system and RF designed fork and down tube bumpers to keep the bike on bike crime to a minimum.

Base Layers: Sustainably sourced, 100% Merino Wool.

Wool Layer
  Exceptionally soft and breathable, merino wool regulates your body temperature (keeping you warm in cool weather and cool in the heat), naturally controls odour and stretches as you move.

Storage Wars

New this season, the RF Storage category was developed for the growing number of riders looking for a low profile alternative to a full hydration pack, but still wanting the convenience of carrying snack/tools/hydro in a secured, balanced location.

Rip Strip
  Just goin' for a rip, not an epic? Leave the big pack at home and reach for the new Rip Strip - a low profile lumbar belt designed to fit the essentials for a day in the bike park or just a quick lap on your local go-to trail.

STASH tank
  The Stash Tank has easy-access back storage pockets of varying widths to accommodate a mix of tools, snacks, water bottle and pump. For longer adventures, a full back pocket along the spine allows riders to install a reservoir (1.5L or less recommended) running the tube up through either the left or right channels of the garment and securing through a loop at the front of the tank.

STASH tank
  The Stash Tank for ladies has all of the same features as the men's Stash Tank with female-specific fit and coverage.

Pedally Bikes

DIY Podium Jersey 2
  Perfect for the modern trail rider, the men's Podium 3/4 zip jersey has subtle styling and features a traditional 3-pocket design.

DIY Podium Jersey
DIY jersey
  The women's DIY trail jersey features a custom back pocket system designed with two top openings and a third narrow pocket opening to accommodate a bike pump. Colour blocked and angled back pocket panels add stylish detail.

DIY short details
  Between sizes? No worries, most riders are. Introducing the fully re-designed DIY shorts. The new pattern features a wide, smooth figure-flattering waistband designed to accommodate individual body shapes, whether you have a slim frame or curvier physique. This pull-on style hugs waists without bulky snaps or zippers at the fly making it incredibly comfortable for long days in the saddle.

DIY short details
  Roll down the waistband to customize the rise.

Khyber Kit
Khyber kit
  Orange is the new...colour for the women's Khyber DH shorts & gloves.

Street Wear: Off the bike life.

Union Jacket
  RF sales guy Devyn gives us his best 'Blue Steel' while modelling the new Union jacket.

Loam Ranger jacket
  The Loam Ranger flannel - the always-classy Canadian Tuxedo.

Slim Jim Slim Jane
  Slim Jim and Slim Jane hoodies... great post ride beer gear.

 Wow, I really like that line, I find it quite unique and genre neutral. So rare these days when things are falling so rigid into XC sperm suit, DH race pyjama or Endurosexual Glow. That womens Khyber Jersey is awesome!

 Strapping tools and pumps on your waist in "Rip Strip" and "StashTank" fashion could be proven hazardous according to my opinion.
Imagine landing on your back with a pump or a multi tool so close to your skin and bones...

I would prefer the cushioning of a backpack any day over such solutions.
  • 18 3
 Not to mention its just a modern Fanny Pack.....
  • 4 1
 Agreed - that seems a bit scary.
  • 7 3
 I agree, strapping tools, pump and gels around your waist works for road biking, but probably not so much for mtb (bouncing and falling). The Rip Strip seems silly - always good to have water, and I'm not riding with a bulky water bottle bouncing around my waist. For a second I thought the Stash Tank might be good, but if you ride a few times a week, how many stash tanks would you need to buy? I'm not keen on wearing a top that I've been sweating in more than once. Also, you'd always have to be moving stuff between different Stash Tanks - prefer just leaving it all in my camelbak. Dunno if this fad of going superlight is gonna last. Better hope at least one of your buddies is carrying a proper camelbak with tools and extra water.
  • 6 1
 Yep I'd rather wear a lightweight camelback
  • 3 2
 I think it's a great idea for trail rides because of the accessibility of whatever is stowed while riding vs a pack pretty much has to come off. Agreed, not sure I like the idea of a pump on my lumbar on a ride when there's a decent chance I may hit the deck, but to be able to grab some gels, food, extra water, or something without having to remove a pack then its a win. Shirts that come with pockets suck for trails, too rough or you have to wear them like a skin suit to keep things in place. This pack allows you to wear comfy baggies and have a light load accessible. Maybe not for everyone, but I'll be picking one up.

 If you're running tubeless then you probably don't suffer flats often so could get away with a really small pump (onerous to use but easy to carry). This might be a good fit for this application: backbottle.com It's a bottle with a flat side that's designed to fit in jersey pockets.
  • 2 0
 Why not just wear a road jersey? Same thing with one less layer. The woman's version with the camel back pocket makes more sense. As to pump and tube, tape it to your frame. Phone, tools, keys go in a pants pocket.

 @kathwill - Because I prefer looser fitting clothing when riding trail, but a loose-fitting pocket jersey just flops around on your back. I put my pump and water on the bike, carry a tube (run tubeless, but just in case), micro tool, phone and food… access to food without stopping would be nice, and some extra lumbar support for my old back may be anise added benefit as well. To each their own; I'll be rocking the lumbar belt this summer for sure.

 Wanting more "off the bike" style riding apparel. Street clothes look w/sporty materials/function.
This niche is fairly limited so far, and pretty pricey when you do find it. (Kitsbow, giro, what else..?)
  • 3 2
 Word! I don't get why people want techy-enduro-pajama looking stuff for trail riding (and I wear full spandex for road riding!)

I have a Fjallraven super breatheable button-up that puts the kitsbow and giro i have to shame.

The only thing is it's tight in the shoulders so not ideal for my road/xc bikes.

But look outside of bike-specific stuff snd I'm sure you'll find something good!

 I think the idea of pockets ln the back for accesoires is pretty good. On the other hand, since enduro type riding is more dh than xc, I don't even want to think about crashing with a tool, bottle and minipump strapped to my back.

 Hey Race face does the flap on the truck pad stay up so I can use the back up camera? That looks like the best I have seen so far. I like the ridges to keep bikes from sliding.
  • 2 1
 Doesn't looks like it does. I have a Tacoma and just flip the flap handle up and tuck it under the pad.

 I have a 14 tacoma. I use mirrors. like a man. (even though the head unit displays the camera)

 One day you might take small children into the bush for trail building and riding. Then you'll know what it's like to feel like a man. Till then, keep it down.

 Hey now, my serial killer van (Ford E150) is great for bikes. Highly secure and with the tinted windows, no one even knows the bikes are there. Plus it has drawers and shelves for a mobile work station. What makes it great for bodies makes it great for moving bikes. It also beeps when I back up to warn the kids.
  • 3 1
 Got a Tacoma and a Dakine pad - same issue with it constantly getting in the way of the camera. Even ended up putting some stickyback velcro on it to keep it up (folding it under tends to only last so long). Tempted to just cut the damn flap off, it's not like you're absolutely relying on that particular spot when you're stacking bikes back there.

 I'm on my 2nd RMA'd Chute jacket and now it is falling apart again. RF customer service is awesome, but the quality of this jacket sucks.
  • 6 5
 I bought a raceface jacket 2 years ago for like 150 pounds to bike in, a fucking black garbage bag is more breathable then that utter shit of a jacket. Raceface Chute what a joke. So many other jackets available in the price range that just make the Chute look like it's made by infants. Sorry Raceface usually love your stuff and have a lot from you guys, but the money I spent on this jacket is bloody highway robbery for what you get.................
  • 2 0
 Agreed. I would never buy a jacket from a riding apparel company. There's so many phenomenal active/breathable jackets out there from outdoor companies like Marmot, Patagonia, Mountain Hardware etc.
  • 1 0
 Never say never...instead, so your research.

In that departement (waterproof/breathable) I have personally only seen miserable products from Fox and RaceFace, but have seen some amazing gear from Endura, Showers Pass, Bontrager (alongside garbage from the same brands, mind you) and super spendy stuff like Giro, Kitsbow etc...

Look for a minimum of 10,000 g/m2 waterproofness and breathability and yeah those start at around $120 retail price.

If you have a pretty upright fit on the bike and don't mind some flapping (and have relatively short arms) a regular high quality outdoor jacket should be fantastic.
If (like me) you have relatively long arms but like a non-flappy fit and also like a more aggressive fit even on a trailbike...cycling-specific jacket fit makes a big big difference.

 With Fox tail owning RF that means direct competition with Fox head. Now that fox head belongs to an investment group I guess that is cool. I just wonder if that is why RF is suddenly releasing such a super competitive line of soft goods. No need to worry about stepping on the old brother's toes.
  • 5 0
 Our SG's line has a very long development cycle, so the entire line had already been dialed in before we had any idea about the Fox takeover. Fox is very supportive of our SG's lineup, so we're stoked to see where we can take it next now that we have their backing!
  • 2 0
 This isn't very sudden, their range has been growing steadily over the last few years; and if you notice most of the captions on the photos say "this year" as a lot of them are incremental changes on existing products. I've been using their soft goods, both on and off the bike, for a couple years and have been brilliant.

 This line was developed before Fox tail acquired it... they're releasing such a competitive line because they've got great designers at work there who like to keep pushing the industry forward Smile

 The early history of Fox Racing and Fox Racing Shox were intertwined. Fox Racing Shox is a brand of offroad racing suspension components founded by Geoff Fox's brother, Bob Fox. Fox Racing Shox were distributed by Moto-X Fox and Bob's company was originally under the corporate umbrella of Moto-X Fox. In 1978 Bob's division split out as a separate company called Fox Factory Inc.[1]

Sorry. I was 1 when they were together...

 Fox started as one beast, run by two brothers. Savmeister is right about that. Cool to hear fox is hands off and lets RF do its thing. I love RF products and am somewhat ambivalent about Fox. It gives me hope for Easton too. I want to see all the parts companies continue to innovate without a single entity taking control and spinning them too much one way or the other.

 I've got to say still much more a fan of the Troy Lee stuff. IMO slightly better designed and better (more complimentary) colour combos, especially this years navy blue w/ orange detailing Ruckus. Although as much of a fan I am of your new Ace shorts (what I primarily wear), not a fan of the print (in cyan or red), however last years grey splatter seemed to work somehow.
