Rukka Nivala Gore-Tex Textile Jacket - Black
September 19, 2020

Brilliant jacket from Rukka

The fit is excellent and the quality is as expected for a premium jacket. Like most have said the stretch in the material makes it much more wearable than other jackets. I have only worn it once in the rain but I was bone dry after the ride. Yes it's pricey but it does the job very well.

Fabulous Rukka

I purchased this for the extra protection both armour and waterproofing. I was not disappointed. Nor should I be at the price! But for riding all weathers, it's top notch kit and worth every penny. Well thought out pockets. Fantastic quality and feel. And supremely warm, such that my heated jacket was turned right down . Best jacket I have had. Heartily recommended

As good as they say it is!

I had been looking for a replacement for my trusty Heine Gerich and it came down to the Stadler Super Vent or the Rucka Nivala. With the Nivala already on special offer and with a personal additional 10% weekend discount, it was time to take the plunge. I visited Sportsbikeshop where the service was helpful and patient as always as I tried on different sizes and colours. The size 50 is perfect for my 39inch chest. Have just ridden a 300 mile day in temperatures as cold as 2c and the Nivala is a revelation. The cuffs fit over winter gloves and are draft free. The high neck and neoprene collar were comfortable all day. The internal pockets are large and easy to access. I like the crutch strap as I don't have a matching zip trouser (yet!) it is very comfortable and with the down liner I only needed a base layer and a thin mid layer to stay warm. And I do usually feel the cold so that is a very high standard of warmth. Have not ridden in rain but it's goretex pro and guaranteed so I know it will work. Only negative is the level 1 back protector. But this is a fabulous jacket and thanks to a great deal from Sportsbikeshop I'm now another convert to Rucka.

Rukka Nivala jacket and pants

I happily give five stars to both the nivala suit and Sportsbikeshop. If you've read any negative reviews on this suit, they're wrong. This is the very best on all counts, bar non. Any bad press must have been wrote by the opposition. I bought the suit from Sportsbikeshop's Boston branch, the staff could not have been more helpful and attentive. You really need to go and try these suits on if you're spending so much money. This branch seemed to have every size option I asked for. So to sum up, very pleased in all respects.

Rockin Rukka

After trying for max discount on this jacket they came good in the new year, cheapest by far. Told it would be late when I enquired about it and turned up a day early. Win Win Jacket is a bit different to get into as it only has a single zip but latest technology hopefully keeps it watertight. Love the Rukka kit, this replaces my 4 year old jacket that still looks like the day I bought it and still waterproof.

Product Specification Variants Related Items


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).
