Rukka Releases High-Tech 'Premium' Textile Motorcycle SuitRukka Premium Gore-Tex Motorcycle Suit

At all times, Rukka’s respective current flagship textile suit has combined all the ground breaking features that make the Finnish maker’s products so forward-looking and exclusive. The new suit – named Premium – continues this tradition.

The outer material of the Premium suit is elastic Gore-Tex three-layer laminate, making it exceptionally comfortable. Extremely abrasion resistant Armacor fabric is used to reinforce it in exposed areas.

Obviating a wind flap, the jacket features a fully waterproof AquaSeal front zipper by YKK – a technology now brought to motorcycling apparel for the first time by Rukka.

Other crucial comfort features of the jacket include a soft neoprene collar, a detachable neck warmer made from elastic Gore-Tex three-layer laminate and water- and windproof sleeve ends with elastic cuffs and zippers.

Ventilation zippers at the shoulders, in the back and on the thighs allow the entry of fresh air whenever desired. No less than nine pockets offer plenty of storage space.

Most of the pockets are waterproofed, the upper chest pockets feature tear-proof magnetic closures. The air-permeable Rukka D3O Air protectors at the joints and in the back combine optimum comfort with maximum protection thanks to their soft, flexible material that instantly multiplies crash damping in case of an impact.

In addition, the Premium suit of course has all the details that can be expected from a high end Rukka product – from the detachable thermal linings with temperature-regulating Outlast to the long connecting zipper, numerous adjusters on the sleeves, waist and hips to the trousers‘ climate regulating Rukka AirCushion System and Antiglide-Keprotec.

The black Premium suit is available at fine Rukka shops in the sizes 46 through 62 (Euro) with reflective piping optionally in yellow or orange.
