The Maven is essentially the women’s edition of RSD’s popular men’s Ronin Jacket, but cut for a female fit. It’s a close-fitting café-style jacket with. Like the Ronin it gets perforated panels for breathability, and articulated sleeves for comfort while riding. And it gets that already-broken-in-feeling Airborne leather—pre-oiled, washed, then hand-finished so it feels like it’s been not just broken in, but slept in, beat up, and well-loved.
Pre-curved arms prevent awkward bunching while riding. Comfort flex panels under the arms at the chest further aid comfort. And then there are the oh-so-many zippered pockets—two hand-warmers, one chest, one on the right-hand forearm for toll money. There are a few more inside, including two non-zippered stuff pockets with elastic hem to keep gloves and other sundries safe inside.
The Maven jacket also comes with five pockets to house the RSD Women’s Armor Kit, which is not included but highly recommended for the extra protection while riding.
