Rukka Clothing
on: November 26, 2015, 07:24:55 PM
Finally my Hein Gericke suit is being consigned to the great graveyard in the sky and I am thinking of replacing it with Rukka gear. Anyone have an opinion on what jacket and trousers combination are the best I ride all year round and is there anything else out there to compete with it.

I use a Spidi Ergo 05 jacket with Spidi trousers, nice and warm and importantly dry as well. My first Spidi jacket lasted just over 10 years when it started to get a bit damp inside, so bought another from a place in Germany.

I have the Armas jacket and trousers. RIDE magazine summed them up very nicely when they described as "good for Armageddon"  :169:
Yea, fantastically rugged, well made and I wouldn't be without it, although saying that, I only wear the trousers when very wet or very cold (prefer leather trousers  :007:
I bought both from Germany as you will save a few hundred pounds that way. Checkout fc-moto.de or biker-land.com.

Rukka kit is bomb proof, but not necessarily the best for you.

Depends on what riding you do. If it's mainly in good weather, then Rukka is not very good in hotter weather. Anything above 23 degree's Celsius, and you'll be better off with something else.

I've had the Rukka Armax kit. Very good in the right conditions.......................

I'm now using a Revit Poseidon suit. Proshell outer and great ventilation for the warmer times. It even has the facility to clip in a water cooling jacket, which allows the water to evaporate, which in turns cools you as you ride.
Worked great in the Pico's earlier this year in 30+ degrees.

Good luck.

I was at the Bike Show today and was impressed by the Halvarssons brand, I'd say it was at least as good as the top end HG stuff. And they do long leg versions for we lanky types.
Also in the garage: Yamaha TDM900 & XTZ750.
