Red Torpedo's new RT Spring / Summer collection is now in stock and we're delighted with the initial customer feedback that it has received! So what’s new for 2022?
All the gear's still made by our European suppliers to the same quality standards that the brand has become known for - so no change there. But this year, we’ve introduced a few changes to appeal to a wider age group and broader market beyond our core, loyal customer base of bikers and bike racing fans.
New Garment Colours
For starters we’ve added more colour - not only to the range of fabrics but also to some of the individual graphic designs to provide more variety and appeal to a broader customer group. Gone is the chalk and vintage white of the past!
The bike market traditionally tends to gravitate towards a grey, black and charcoal palate and these are still a core part of the range. But we’ve dialled up the colour offer with the introduction of burgundy, navy, khaki, racing green and pink across several product categories.
In men's tee shirts we've still got anthracite and black but with this new range, we've added tee shirts in burgundy, khaki, navy and racing green. The range of women's tees has also been re-vamped with the addition of pink, khaki, light blue and grey marl.

Women's "Spanner Bolt" t-shirt in pink & grey hoodie
The new men's hoodies use some of the same fabric colours and similar designs to the new tees. Burgandy and navy (Ashcourt Racing design) are now available as well as black. Women's hoodies, now available in grey marl, burgandy and black, have a new sizing structure and are no longer"fitted" which allows greater freedom of movement and increased comfort.

The on garment graphic designs have also received an overhaul. We still have a range of designs ostensibly for bikers - those packing a slightly heavier "punch" in terms of visual impact, but we've introduced some more "accessible" designs for non bikers. These more subtle, understated designs are for those wanting to wear the gear in a more casual setting - from single colour to multiple colour prints.

Men's "Full Throttle Living" in navy
Men's and women's "Tie-Dye Piston" t-shirt (multi colour print) in anthracite
Other Garments in the Range
The new shirts are still made in the same super soft and comfortable fabrics but we've now made the men's larger sizes with an extended body length. Our 100% cotton, men's long sleeve waffles now come in navy, racing green and black with slightly more refined designs in comparison to the tees allowing more versatility in smart and casual wear settings.
Our range of Red Torpedo accessories is continuing to expand and in response to customer demand, we've introduced a top quality 100% leather belt for this year.
