Rukka manufactures some of the best waterproof and thermal garments in the world. The reason for this specialisation is related to the company’s origin. Founded by the Finn Roger Störling in 1950, the brand began to create marine equipment and since they adapted their name to Rukka in 1966, they expanded their know how to different sectors, including motorcycle gear.
Part of Rukka’s secret is the total dedication to obtaining an unbeatable quality in each product made. The brand does not spare costs when testing and evolving their material, counting on the collaboration of brands such as Gore or DuPont to find new materials. Which is why they have become one of the favourites among touring users.
The Rukka jackets available at Motocard are all waterproof, including the textile models and the lady versions. It’s clear that the Finnish climate marks the company’s philosophy; no Rukka garment will disappoint you in the rain. The same is true for their pants. Although the brand specialises in winter gear, they also have models for all year round and summer gear.
Rukka also has thermal garments, such as jerseys, , pants and under suits. They’re the ideal complement, especially in the coldest climates, and they can be the difference between abandoning the bike in the garage during the winter months or to carry on enjoying it, no matter how cold it gets.
Rukka also has technology to beat the cold in their gloves. All of them include Gore-Tex technology for their touring models and the new Gore-Tex X-Trafit membrane for the more sporting gloves, a membrane which improves feel but still includes the necessary impermeability.
And to complement our safety, Rukka also has lumbar bands, an extra protection that can be very useful when setting out on long bike journeys.
