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.
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.

Great glove for mid-season, though as a previous reviewer has pointed out, the fingers aren't pre-curved so the material can bunch up on the fingers and hand. Goretex is a great upgrade for me as well!
Never bought anything from Rukka before, but I've always wanted as everybody says brilliant things about the brand. Well, I decided to start with a £140 pound glove and for my disappointment, after 6 months of use, the glove has become faulty with the inner textile becoming lose once you removed your hands out of the glove. Who would think that such a good brand would make such crappy gloves, I have now taken it back to Infinity and it will take at least 2 weeks to see if they will fix or send me a new glove... So the bottom line is I do not recommend this glove, and I am not the first one to complain about inner lining becoming loose.
Waterproof, windproof good feel
I bought these as spring/autumn gloves and for wet cooler summer days (this is Britain after all). They are a perfect fabric for this, lightweight enough not to be too hot, waterproof of course, good feel from the goretx xtrafit. Unfortunately I find that they get a bit uncomfortable after a while as the fingers aren't pre curved and the fabric bunches up under the hand/fingers. They'd get 5 stars if it wasn't for that...
light weight, nice fit
Bought these as an all rounder glove. Ridden these in hot and wet conditions and they are the best gloves I have ever had. Fits well over my jacket. Useful feature of wiper blade on left hand when it rains. No more wet gloves. 5 out of 5
NOT worth the money as they don't last!
I've had these glove for about a year now. Took a while to get used to them due to the plastic protector on the palm. Really nice glove once worn in. The index finger contacts that allow you to operate your phone don't last very long at all. They were pretty useless after about 5-6 months. The Gore-Tex lining on the left hand side thumb has now completely torn apart, despite the glove being the correct size for me and not being abused in any sense. The right hand glove Gore-Tex lining has also come loose so its a real pain to get the glove back on after taking it off. I'd expect a glove costing that much to last much longer than a year! Massive disappointment and £140 flushed down the loo!
Okay gloves but be warned
These gloves are very comfortable in hot or cold conditions, however the bits on the finger tips which allow you to use a smart phone came off within 2 weeks. Also, after 4 months the lining in both gloves came away from the outershell. May have just been my particular gloves, so if that is the case then I would of given 5 stars..
