When it comes to moto-specific garments geared for maximum protection, functionality, and comfort, the Rukka line rides sidecar to none. With apex materials and technologies such as Gore-Tex Pro with Armacor, SuperFabric, Outlast, and more, there is not a paved (or un-paved) road on the planet that they have not thought to prepare for. From the rigorous evaluation of every kind of material employed in their manufacturing, to the legion of professional testers who put the prototypes through their paces in the field, no expense is spared in delivering the end consumer with some of the most robust moto garments in the world. As daydreams of warmer weather begin to abound in the minds of motorcyclists in the Northern hemisphere, Rukka is ready to introduce the coolest moto jacket in their line-up… ever.
The Rukka AiRider Jacket is the newest addition the Air Power + series. With the shell of the jacket constructed out of a knitted blend of Cordura AFT fabric, it will enhance rider comfort in hot weather by flowing 1.8 times more air than regular Cordura. However, great airflow does not have to necessitate a regression in protection as each offers comparable levels of resistance against contact with the tarmac. Because of the fabric’s unique properties and capabilities, it is utilized on all of Rukka’s AirPower Technology Collection.
The largest difference between the AiRider and similar products such as the Airwave, AirMan, and AirComet, is that the former will forgo the Gore-Tex liner that can be found on the three latter models. In choosing this option Rukka has decided to make the jacket lighter, simpler, and in the end, more focused on keeping riders cool in hot weather. As with all Rukka moto gear, the AiRider will come with D3O Air Protectors at the shoulders and elbows as well as a pocket for an additional back protector to be purchased separately.
