Race Armour LITE Shorts

Race Armour LITE Shorts

Building on the success of the Rooster DS Layering System, ROOSTER introduce the RaceArmour Concept.

RaceArmour LITE: Featuring dual-layer contoured neoprene padding with durable armoured exterior and 410gsm Spandex front panels ; whether you sail in Rochdale or Rhode Island, we have you covered. Wear them on their own in warmer climes for extended hours on the water, with Rooster ProHike Pads to hike harder for longer, or as a perfect partner when worn over an existing neoprene garment.

"For winter hiking support and protection against an abrasive hull, we love our RaceArmour Lite Shorts with ProHike Pads worn over the top of a SuperTherm® Long John. I can see me wearing them over a ThermaFlex LJ in the UK summer - and at Garda in light airs, perhaps on their own."

Steve Cockerill


We recommend hand washing in warm soapy water and allowing to air dry.
