Roland Sands Design

A word from Roland...

"The RSD apparel line has been in the works for quite a while. It's hard to put what we have done into any category, just like it's hard to categorise the unique crew of individuals that have played a part in the design. The collective riding experience of this group has come together for a true rider built apparel line that focuses on quality and style. We believe that riding gear doesn't have to be loud, obnoxious and over-branded. The RSD line is riding gear built with a parallel of fashion and function, neither a burden unto the other. So whether you're avoiding Sunday drivers on the freeway, exploring an unknown back road with more corners than cars, or taking a quick trip to the local watering hole, we've been there and we've got you covered". Roland Sands.


Apparel designed for riding, but with emphasis on a clean visual aesthetic and relaxed comfortable fit that can be worn on or off your bike. All day riding or all night out.


RSD apparel incorporates functional details that make each jacket your favourite. Simples closures, adjustability options, and effective pocket solutions for every ride or every day.
