Outer Jacket: Rukka Gore-Tex Pro Shell
The Rukka ARMAS jacket outer is a 3 Layer laminate.

Layer 1: Armacor
A tough mix of Cordura and Kevlar. Every fourth strand of thread in the outer material is Kevlar®, known for it's anti-tear properties. This is complimented by Cordura's abrasion resistance and a water repellent coating. The result is an extremely tough outer shell that remains comfortable.
The Rukka ARMAS uses a Gore-Tex® LockOut closure, a waterproof alternative to traditional zip and storm flap arrangements.
Stretch panels ensure a snug fit.

Layer 2:Gore-Tex®

  • 100% Waterproof - Even under high pressures the water drops cannot penetrate the membrane. Your body remains dry.
  • 100% Wind proof - The wind is caught in the structure of the membrane. You stay warm.
  • Breathable - Body moisture escapes through the membrane.

Layer 3: Lining
A breathable comfort lining is bonded to the Gore-Tex® membrane to provide comfort and protect the Gore-Tex® from wear and tear.
The outside of the jacket features TFL COOL BLACK handling, which reduces the surface temperature of black Cordura significantly when exposed to sun radiation, which makes the jacket cooler on sunny days and reduces ageing.
The end result is an outer jacket that is abrasion and tear resistant as well as waterproof, wind proof and breathable providing lasting protection against variable weather elements, from warm weather to torrential rain.

Inner Jacket
The ARMAS jacket has a breathable mesh lining and a detachable 60g thermal lining which features Outlast® technology.



The lining of the Rukka ARMAS jacket incorporates Outlast® technology, which continuously interacts with the unique micro-climate of the human body and the environment to moderate temperature from being too hot or too cold to being just right.
The human body naturally sweats to cool the skin, reducing the ability of clothing, footwear and bedding to keep the body dry and comfortable. Outlast® technology, conversely, will keep individuals comfortable by absorbing body heat when too much is created, thereby diminishing the amount of moisture. Outlast® materials balance your temperature through the use of patented micro encapsulated Thermocules™ that absorb and store excess heat, releasing it when you need it most.
In 2005, Outlast® technology was inducted into the Space Technology Hall of Fame for successfully transforming technology originally developed for space exploration into products that help improve the quality of life here on Earth - Outlast® technology was originally developed for NASA for use in gloves and other apparel applications such as pants and socks to buffer and moderate the temperature found in space and very high altitude.
Simply put, here are the advantages in using Outlast® technology in motorcycle clothing:

  • Feels cool and fresh to touch, reducing sweat.
  • Absorbs excess heat and stores it.
  • Releases stored heat when temperature decreases

Rukka Air Protector armour is designed with breath-ability in mind and passes CE approval. Shoulder , elbow and knee protectors are all larger than competitors armour, with the intention of covering the area even in the outer garment moves.
The Rukka ARMAS jacket features and shoulder armour and a pocket for a back protector.

Rukka logo

Rukka was founded in a Finnish farm kitchen in 1950, initially called 'AB Sportsbeklädnad Urheiluvaatetus Oy’.

Shortly afterwards they bought their first "welding" gear, enabling them to make waterproof seams and launch their first range of waterproof clothing. Thankfully for international audiences, they changed their name to the less-intimidating "Rukka" in 1966, which was the nickname of founder Roger Störling. Nowadays, Rukka is an independent division of one of Europe's largest sportswear manufacturers.

Things have moved on since the PVC waterproof of the 80's, Rukka are at the leading age of motorcycle clothing development, working with leaders such as W.L. Gore and DuPont on new materials and testing. Every material is extensively tested by Rukka and the material manufacturers in every condition you'll find motorcycle riders.

The flags in the Rukka logo spell Rukka in the international flag alphabet, a tribute to Rukka's roots in sailing, which, along with motorcycle riding, can create the most testing weather conditions any of us are likely to encounter.

The current range of Gore Tex jackets and trousers can be split into two ranges, Cordura and ArmaProtection. The Cordura range use an outer shell predominately made from Motorcycle Approved Cordura, the ArmaProtection range use the even more abrasion resistant material Armacor material.

How to Look After Rukka Clothing

It is important to make sure you look after your motorcycle clothing. Ensuring proper care will maintain the quality of the products as well as their comfort and safety. Here is our guide on how to look after your Rukka clothing.

We recommend following the manufacturers guidelines. Below is how to look after and wash Rukka Jackets:

  • Close all zippers and cords on the jacket.
  • Remove any armour and protectors if applicable.
  • Machine wash with a small amount of normal fine washing powder. Ensure you use non-biological powder to protect the water resistant capabilities of the clothing.
  • Do not use detergents, softeners or conditioners in the washing machine.
  • Put only one jacket in the washing machine at once.
  • Rinse thoroughly and set a low temperature if tumble drying. No more than 55 C.
  • Iron on the lowest setting, and take care not to iron the reflective areas.
  • Do not tumble dry Rukka AirPower jackets or trousers.

Rukka Gloves
It's important to keep GORE-TEX motorcycle gloves clean. Their quality and effectiveness is linked to their ability to breathe and release condensation build up. If the pores get blocked, gloves can become waterlogged – it’s important to make sure you keep them clean if used regularly.

Why Would You Choose Rukka?

There are a great many motorcycle clothing brands competing for your attention and cash, and at Infinity Motorcycles we carefully filter the brands we offer so that they all excel at something.

Rukka, hailing from Finland as they do, excel at creating clothing that is useful in harsh winter climates and is extremely tough. Many consider it to be the highest-tech motorcycle clothing available on the market today, and we certainly wouldn't put up a counter-argument.

Being hardy, tough and well-built, it naturally lasts a long time – so the adage "buy cheap, pay twice" is definitely relevant here. Rukka is more expensive than some other brands, but can last much longer and consequently comes with generous warranties, so factoring this in you can get a lot more clothing for your money with Rukka.

One of the reasons for Rukka jackets' toughness is the attention and care taken during construction. The stitching and attention to detail at wear points on Rukka products has a legitimate claim to being the best in the business, and it is an aspect of motorcycle clothing that is often ignored by the cheaper brands, resulting in excessive wear and a need to replace your motorcycle clothing more frequently.

What most people think of when they think of Rukka, even more than their extreme toughness and weather resistance, is features. Rukka have more features, clever additions and high tech fabrics than any other brand we can think of that caters to the same audience. From armour and armour pockets on every stretch of jacket, to the advanced Gore-Tex and Superfabric materials that make the jackets weather and abrasion resistant, respectively – their special features run the gamut from life-saving, to leg-saving, to simply day-saving.

That's the short version of why you would choose Rukka – for the long version, with a hefty dose of personal experience, come into one of our Infinity stores and talk to one of our knowledgeable staff.

Why Not Rukka?

It's also important to recognise that you might not choose Rukka for some roles. While Rukka make very versatile motorcycle clothing (great for off-road, sports and touring – a really rare combination), it's not Dainese race gear, and it doesn't want to be.

Similarly, if you're not sure if you'll still be riding motorcycles in five years time (for whatever reason), some of the advantages of Rukka motorcycle clothing will be a bit lost on you. Although you'll still have the advantage of top of the range protection, it might not be so important to you that the construction is high enough quality to last for years on end, or that Rukka clothing comes with a five year warranty.

All in all, however, we think Rukka are an incredibly good brand of motorcycle clothing, and deceptively good value for money.

Rukka at Infinity

Rukka make excellent clothing suitable for off-road, sports and touring motorcyclists. As the clothing is so good at such disparate roles, they make a good choice for the dedicated motorcycle rider looking for a single set of clothing to wear for all conditions.

At Infinity, many of our shop staff have worn Rukka as well as our other brands, and will have strong opinions on what's best for you and your riding style! We recommend coming in to our stores to take advantage of their expertise, as well as to take the most important step when buying motorcycle clothing – trying on the clothing for size.
