The Extreme Jacket : a new change

The Extreme Jacket is a versatile piece in the Raidlight jacket collection. It returns every year in new colours whilst always maintaining the classic characteristics:

- Waterproof membrane with MP +

- Lightweight

- Breathability

In 2014, trail enthusiasts including Spaniard Luis Revuelta, have expressed their ideas to change this jacket. Today, thanks to you, the Extreme top is still effective, and becomes even more practical with the addition of loops inside the pocket. When folded into its own pocket, it can be then attached to a bag, or belt .....

“I really like the look of the 2014 jacket and I am very pleased to see it constantly evolve.”

Trail Shoe Team R-Light 001

When the idea came for designing a Trail Shoe, we decided to use the ideas of our community, which includes more than 3,000 trail runners and enthusiasts. We were convinced that through a better understanding of the market requirements we would succeed, and who can better express their needs than consumers themselves?

So we asked the community for ideas on the Future Trail Shoe through our "Design Workshop". This collaboration was a great success, with over 250 customers’ ideas and comments leading to the establishment of the specifications and the basic needs of the project.

From the design forum the Trail Shoe exhibits the following principals:

- A Sustainable shoe (interchangeable parts)

- A Perfect fit (able to customize as necessary)

- A comfortable shoe

- A very good grip

In addition to being undoubtedly the most durable and original shoe concept ever created, the Team R-light 001 is the result of a collaboration between a brand and a community. This is what ultimately makes a product really successful.

Mini-Gaiter - Patented

In 2010, we proposed a new model Mini-Gaiter with a patented system.

These ideas did not come specifically from the design workshop, but are the result of an in-depth

analysis of all the posts and comments.

Key points included:

- An adjustable front protected flap (clips onto front lace)

- An interchangeable tongue in case of breakage or wear

- Cushioned foam ankle protection

- Effective protection for all seasons

These gaiters are adjustable to any running shoe and will protect against sand, mud, snow and

stones. Made from Polyester rip-stop material, they are waterproof, breathable, and will stretch.


The ventral bag (front compartment): a long story…

The story of the ventral compartment design is emblematic of how to act Raidlight. It began in 2001 at the Marathon des Sables, ran for the first time by Benoît Laval.
 
On this occasion, he met two Moroccan brothers, who won nine times this extreme race of 240km. They developed a bag, from their experience and also from other riders before them. Benoît Laval worked with one of them, inspire them to make a first version of a front / rear bag tested in competition in 2003.
 

Then this new bag is subjected to critical opinions of customers and Raidlight does a consultation to their users to make this product better.
55 of them suggest improvements, such as a card holder or a strap included for wear as a purse, outside of the races (the names of 55 customers who helped us are screenprinted on the back of bags Evolution 2).
The result is both a technical product and a wider public, especially to light-hiking.
