At Race Face, we pride ourselves on making some of the best carbon and alloy parts for your bike. But we know our way around the softer stuff, too. Whether it’s protecting your knees, elbows or torso from mountain biking’s impacts, or keeping you dry, cool and comfortable on that bonus lap, Race Face soft goods are designed with riders like you in mind.
Indy Knee Pad
One of our best-selling pads, Indy Knee is Race Face’s Enduro-rated protection. Tested with our World Cup Enduro athletes, Indy was designed for big days of pedaling up and then pinning it down extended double-black descents. With proven D3O® LP1 foam impact protection, you’re in the best gear to take a hit at race pace.
Indy features upper thigh silicone grippers, a silicone shin patch and a useful calf strap to keep the knee pads in place without any annoying fidgeting. Like all our gear, these pads are designed and built with durable construction.
Your hands are arguably the most important interface with your bike, so it makes sense to keep them protected if (and when) you happen to rapidly dismount (aka crash). Gloves are very much a personal preference for riders, and our Trigger Glove is one of the most preferred by Race Face customers.
The biggest consideration with gloves is comfort. If you want to ride all day, you need a glove that feels good. Trigger features ribbed lycra fabric on the back of the hand for mobility and a stretch wrist panel which will feel like a custom fit after a few rides. The highly absorbent terry cloth thumb will make sure to keep your brow sweat-free, as well as wiping mud from the goggle lens on muddy days.
If you’re heading to the bike park or simply looking to tackle a feature with full-send confidence, the Ruxton Core has your back — literally. A comfortable and flexible D3O® BP4 backpiece (the most breathable back protector on the market) will keep you protected in the event of a tumble. The chest is reinforced EPE foam for full coverage.
For shoulders and elbows, the Ruxton Core D3O® LP1 Limb Protectors help keep your upper limbs abrasion-free while maintaining maximum breathability. The arm pieces are completely removable for days when you’re only looking for back and torso protection. All D3O® pieces are completely removable when it’s time for Ruxton to hit the washing machine.
Our Indy Pants are perfect for gravity riders or those who like to brave the elements in the colder months. A unisex fit, the Indy Pants are designed with articulated patterning for ergonomic on-bike movement and are available in both tall and regular inseam lengths.
With laser perforated venting at the inner thigh and back of the knee, you can keep up the airflow when spinning up for another lap. The light and breathable nylon/spandex fabric is durable enough to take the occasional scrape and is treated with water repellency.
A pair of pants wouldn’t be pants without some utility, so we made sure to include two zippered pockets to keep your essentials safe and sound. When nature calls, an adjustable front ratchet closure rounds out the bells and whistles.
Stash 3L Hip Bag
When your pockets aren’t enough to carry what you need, the Stash 3L Hip Bag has the capacity for tools, provisions and whatever other goodies you decide to bring along for the ride. A 1.5L hydration bladder means you can leave the water bottle at home and a water-resistant cell phone pocket makes sure your screen stays dry, whatever the weather.
The main pocket folds out to make a trail-side repair station, letting you keep track of all those little parts that seem to want to run and hide in the dirt. No need for a backpack, the Stash has everything you need for medium to large rides.
