RST is simply the initials of the original company name - Rhino Sport Technology.
Back in 1988 road racer Jonny Towers was attending bike meets and would see riders in badly fitting leathers.
Jonny decided that he would create a range of motorcycle gear which worked well, looked good and was good value for money.
He started with a range of gloves under the Rhino Brand and over the years expanded the range to include leather jackets and jeans.
The Rhino brand evolved into Rhino Sport and finally the 'Technology' was added to create RST.
RST has gone from strength to strength and the range now includes: motorcycle leather suits, textile and leather jackets and jeans; boots and gloves.
All RST motorbike clothing is designed and developed in the UK at their head office in South Normanton, Derbyshire, 10 miles from the Peak District National Park and surrounded by great biking roads – ideal for testing!
