RST was founded in 1988 by Jonny Towers, initially under the name Rhino Sports Technology before evolving into RST in 2001.

We believe Trust is Everything - every rider should have access to the very best protective apparel and technology - allowing them to ride confidently and comfortably.

In 2003, RST’s investment in top-level riders resulted in its first British Championship, with Karl Harris winning the British Supersport Championship. This was swiftly followed by the brand’s first World Championship, as Andrew Pitt secured the 2008 World Supersport Championship.

Since then, our technology has grown to support the very best riders in the world, including MotoGP test rider Sylvain Guintoli, Isle of Man TT legend Ian Hutchinson, WorldSBK & former BSB Champion Alex Lowes as well as many other riders all over the world.
