Rukka has a long history of producing tough, quality motorcycle gear. Rukka was one of the first companies to make use of the Gore-Tex waterproof and breathable membrane for motorcycle gear, launching its first Gore-Tex line in 1986.
During the summer season you need to be prepared because one day may be super hot and dry, but the next you get a downpour. How do you choose the best gear for these conditions?
Many jacket manufacturers advertise the number of vents and flaps here and there, but you need to remember that in the case of an accident, every zip is a weak point.
Vented jackets and full mesh jackets are very different. Mesh allows 4 times the air flow to that of a vented jacket, no matter how many vents the jacket has.
Rukka AirPower category of products comes highly recommended. Tear- and abrasion-resistant Cordura AFT fabric with a knitted mesh structure gives more comfort when riding in a hot climate. Cordura AFT and AFT+, are types of fabric with a mesh structure and Rukka has jackets that are made entirely of these materials. This means that riding in a jacket like this gives a similar feeling to riding in a t-shirt with no comprise on safety or protection. IDEAL!
