DISCOVER WHAT INNOVATIONS ARE COMING YOUR WAY
As you know, the product is the heart of what we do at RACER. For the past 10 years we have continuously invested in Research and Development to expand our range and bring top-of-the-class products to the market.


Rachel Clerc & Elisabeth Le Dez are our innovation gurus.

They are both working on some new and exciting projects for the upcoming seasons.

  • New injected hard knuckles for our motorbike gloves. This will allow us to have a very protective hard knuckles, while extremely breathable thanks to a perforation system. This ultra breathable product should be added to our summer gloves by 2020.

  • Knee guards with BOA Fit System. This exclusive product should be equiped with ergonomic D3O pads for enhanced support. A product we're looking forward to present to our MTB clients for 2020

  • Multi sports down jacket inlcuding knee and elbow pads and a back protector in D3O. A great addition to our 2020 collection!

  • ISO 9001 Quality Management Compliance by September 2018. The standards provide guidance and tools to ensure that our products and services consistently meet customer’s requirements, and that quality is consistently improved.

As you can see, the brand is moving towards more protection and outstanding quality. We're aiming at providing a product offer with more versatility, where one product can be relevant for all our universes.

NEW DISTRIBUTORS & PARTNERSHIPS

It's a great pleasure to have new distributors joining our sales force and helping our development overseas.

  • TRIBE : we wanted to work with them for quite a few seasons, it's now official! Tribe is our official cycle distributor in Italy.

  • BIHR on the motorcycle side. Their network will be a tremendous help in the expansion of our brand, and especially in Eastern Europe. Bihr was an obvious fit for our brand and we have no doubt this collaboration is going to be very successful.

Both of them actively developping mountaineering in France and training tomorrow's guides and explorers.

No better choice than them to help us develop our first mountaineering collection. Ice climbing gloves, ropes gloves, mountaineering heated gloves... Some incredibly technical products are soon to be available. Products launch is planned for November 2019.
