Customer Reviews for Rukka Armaxion Trousers - Black

February 12, 2018

Amazing

As everyone else has said, they're expensive, but it's money well spent. Can't fault them. And have been riding all winter in them, with the thermal lining in, and shorts underneath. Top bit of kit!

Top Notch

Worth every penny. Outstanding quality and very comfortable when on. As ever, Sportsbikeshop couldn't do enough to help. Not sure on sizing but took suggestion which proved spot on.

Great kit

I've been looking to invest in Rukka equipment for my bike riding for some time. I always enjoy my riding whether for Norfolk Bloodbikes or just for my own headspace! Knowing the quality - Goretex, armour, stitching, the warranty and customer backup - and the recommendations / testimonials I have had from numerous bike mates when I saw the price and know the customer service of Sportsbikeshop I knew this was the time to take the leap! I have ordered kit online from Sportsbikeshop numerous times over the years and the ordering and delivery process is excellent. Cannot fault the kit. It's early days but with the guarantee and the attention to detail on the clothing I am very happy with my decision! Not cheap but you won't we disappointed.

Great

Let me preface this, I ride all year round and cover roughly 1200 miles a month. Prior to buying the Rukka Textiles I had a set of Alpinestars Waterproof Textiles (Gunner Jacket and Andes Trousers), total cost was under £400 for the entire set and the ensemble performed admirably. Having been converted to proper winter textiles I decided to upgrade and through various colleagues and friends, Rukka seemed to be a highly reputable brand. I had decided to go with the Rukka Kalix Jacket and was going to go with the matching Kalix trousers - but at the time of ordering, SBS had the Armaxion jeans at a discounted sale price (I presume the Armaxion is being discontinued or SBS will stop stocking them). Regardless of the reason for the sale price, it made no difference to me as they were significantly cheaper than the Kalix jeans and appeared to be of a higher spec. The Armaxion jeans also came with braces whereas the Kalix didn't and I'm a big fan of the braces so I can pretend to be Gordon Gecko. I didn't have many requirements to be honest but I wanted the following components, Goretex Pro Laminate, braces, thermal liner which the Armaxion has all of. First thing to be aware of, sizing - measure around your belly button and don't assume your Jean size. I went with the jean size at first and it did fit I guess but it felt like I was wearing a pair of leggings. My jean size is 32" waist and 30" inside leg so originally I went with M/S, everything fit but it was just too tight and restrictive around the crotch so I went up to a L/S which was much better but still felt quite tight/restrictive. On the off chance you're belly button and waist have the same size, I would still suggest going up one size for comfort. I think this is a character of the Armaxion trousers to be honest, and certainly for the 500 or so miles I've worn them they seem to be breaking in or I'm getting used to them? One of the biggest differences for me is the Hip armour (I had never used any up until now) which definitely adds to the feeling of restriction, I could remove them of course but I think the benefits of having them in outweigh the benefits of removing (comfort). Another good thing about the Armaxion and Rukka in general are that they are quite slim fitting/looking, most winter textiles make you look like the Michelin man but the Rukka stuff is a lot better fitting and looking. The armour for a start sits exactly where it should and does not shift, its almost like wearing race leathers. I did love my Alpinestars textiles but the Andes trousers the knee armour could move around due to how baggy they were, but on the other hand, they were very comfortable and cost less than a third of the Rukka, and did the job very well. I've had no issues with regards to warmth in the Armaxion and there is enough overlap of the Kalix jacket over the trousers that water cannot deep in between the gap where there is no zip. I've not tested the venting side of things as it is winter. I do envision the textiles to be more of a Autumn, Winter, Spring apparel though. All in all I'm very happy with the Armaxion trousers, I wear them zipped to my Kalix jacket. Price wise my Rukka textiles cost over 3x my Alpinestars, is it worth it? Only time will tell, if they perform like they do now in 5 years time then I would say yes. It's a huge investment but I'm planning to go touring and I'm hoping these will last for the long term, Rukka's 6 year guarantee with garment loan scheme is confidence inspiring. Top marks as always to SBS For flawless customer service when I needed to exchange.

It doesn't get any better

What can I say that hasn't already been said. These trousers are top quality in every way, true they are expensive but when you look closely at them,you will see that the stitching is perfectly aligned with no frayed bits sticking out and the materials used in manufacture are about the best on the market today. One piece of advice, go one size up, then you get a perfect fit. Once again, thank's SBS for the best service I have come across from any seller. I'm a very happy Bunny.

Perfect match for jacket

Again a top quality product to match the jacket. Water just runs off and with the perfect stitching will last and always stay dry and comfortable, together with the armour perfect. You get what you pay for.

Top of the line

I ride all year round and these were cool enough in the summer and kept me bone dry in an impossibly heavy downpour. The laminated construction is impossible to overrate. The water bobbles on the surface and a shake of the leg removes a load of water. They are expensive but you get what you pay for. If you have had enough of a wet backside then I recommend these trousers. The D30 armour feels up to the job.

Excellent product

I'm 5ft 11inch 36 waist 32 inside leg, I ordered the size Large, according to the guide, ended up sending them back for the X2 and short leg, a much better fit and length, a quality product I can recommend. Not worn in wet weather yet, but I'm confident they will perform well. Not the cheapest but quality costs. Don't waste your money on cheaper products, you'll end up spending more in the end.

About
Rukka

Rukka motorcycle clothing is renowned throughout the world for being the most technically advanced range on the market, designed to meet the strictest standards for both safety, and rider comfort. Founded in 1950, Rukka have been producing bike clothing since the late 80's with the entire Rukka motorbike range designed in house, as it has been since day one, at their base in Finland. The entire range is today manufactured according to their own Defence and Comfort performance standards, meeting even the strictest criteria set for weatherproofing and riding comfort.
Most Rukka motorcycle jackets and trousers carry the patented Rukka Air protectors, the only patented breathable shoulder, elbow, knee, shin and hip protectors on the market, functioning equally well in all weather conditions. This elastic mesh divides the possible impact into a wide area and acts as a shock absorber. When it comes to reflective materials, Rukka clothing is once again at the forefront of technology. Under normal daylight conditions, Rukka's reflective material appears normal but if directly lit by vehicle headlights in the dark, it reflects the light glaring white. The list of technical elements is almost endless with the use of top brand materials such as Gore-Tex, Armacor, Cordura, SuperFabric and D30 to name only a few.
Regardless of climate, hot or cold, rainy or sunny - Rukka clothing is designed to perform, ensuring both rider comfort and safety. Furthermore, all Rukka outerwear is covered by a 5 year warranty (2 years on gloves).
