We are very excited to be our range of motorcycle protective wear. For those who don’t know, Rukka is pretty widely perceived to make the very best motorcycle clothing money can buy. Rukka is a brand with near obsessive levels of attention to detail. Look at a Rukka jacket, for example, and it may appear similar to many other garments on the market but delve under the surface and you’ll fi nd a whole host of benefi ts and features that aren’t always apparent to the naked eye. Let’s look at a few.
Rukka’s armour, like that of many companies, is CE approved but only Rukka’s is breathable too.This makes it not only very light but it also allows the moisture to escape, meaning that it helps regulate the body’s temperature, thus making the rider more comfortable in hot conditions. Rukka also works closely with the leading makers of high-tech fabrics and materials. Other brands often use materials like CORDURA, or like OUTLAST, or like GORE-TEX, but Rukka only ever employs the real thing. This certainly impacts on price but the result is that the wearer gets the very best and most up to date technology. In many garments, Rukka has OUTLAST, which helps regulate the rider’s temperature by reducing the rate at which a person will overheat or get cold. It was developed for NASA astronauts and clearly plays a role in enhancing a rider’s comfort level. Rukka nearly always uses CORDURA 500 for its outers. Inside its garments, Rukka employs a GORE-TEX PRO SHELL for 100% water and windproofing. It’s a layer that adds both durability and breathability. The list goes on. The point is that Rukka selects the best of everything; the best materials, the best thread, the best zips and so on. But, importantly, the best designers too. It’s only when you live with a Rukka suit that you start to appreciate the great detailing and little design touches that make riding more pleasurable; systems to stop water running up your sleeves and down your neck, pockets with waterproof linings, adjusters for a perfect fit, ventilation panels and so on.
The bottom line here is that Rukka is so confident of its product that all their garments come with a five year guarantee (two years for underwear and accessories). All this, of course, does not make Rukka cheap, but if you want the best this is it. And here’s a thought. As bikers, we often spend thousands of pounds making our already expensive bikes look better, go faster, sound louder and so on. Yet the truth is that if this money were invested more in the rider than in the bike, we’d probably get a lot more out of our machines than we get from a new ECU unit!
