Customer Reviews for Rukka R-Star Gore-Tex Glove - Black
Totally love these gloves. 2nd pair last pair just got to small. Nothing to do with gloves. Twin Chambers are a godsend. 2deg not a problem. Costly but well worth it. Really can't fault quality and service.Read more
Rukka Warmest Glove.
Rukka told me they where the warmest glove they made. I rode for 2 hours at 5 degrees and my hands where still warm. Great buy.Read more
These were on offer for £200 (originally £250!) but, for unheated gloves, are very good. The visor wipe is too small, and I'd prefer it on the thumb in any case. Totally waterproof, but my fingertips get cold at around 5 degrees C, despite heated grips. They are fairly bulky but easy to get used to. Quite difficult to get inside jacket sleeves, as they're pretty thick, but the design & function are very good. The padding on the outer palms does a good job of absorbing vibration from the handlebars. Bought these as a stop-gap because my Gerbings went wrong & burnt one hand. If I decline replacement heated gloves I'll definitely have to use over-mitts when the temps start dropping. Hence 4 stars. SBS are excellent though (as always), despite the pandemic.Read more
So Far So Good
Only wore once for long trip around West of Scotland, kept hands nice and warm and bone dry after several heavy downpours. Feel real quality which you would expect from a £200 pair of gloves, knocked one star off as they do feel bulky in the warm chamber but I'm sure i will get used to them, great service as always from SBS.Read more
Love Rukka stuff but hate these
I tried a pair however chose to return them as even with dry hands the liner pulled out when removing and meant when putting back on the fingers needed a lot of messing about to fit properly and get the liner back in place. I have other Rukka gloves which are excellent however despite these being otherwise excellent quality for me the design is all wrong.Read more
Good Unheated Winter Gloves
I don't know of an unheated glove that will give full protection down below zero Celsius, but this one is close. Certainly with heated grips I only feel slight discomfort at my fingertips. The styling is a little lacklustre, but these are highly functional gloves, and certainly completely waterproof. I found the cuffs very difficult to get inside the sleeves of my Rukka Navigator jacket, which was a little surprising, but I found out why once they were in place - they are a snug fit to keep out draughts, and it works. Tactile feel through the glove is muted, as you'd expect with any insulated glove of this nature, but if you can use the bottom chamber with heated grips, things do improve to a degree. The knuckle protections aren't intrusive and I don't recall them interfering in any way during the winter months when I was wearing them. I'm sure there are other gloves out there that will keep your hands warm in winter, but Rukka most certainly paid attention to detail with these, as they most always do. The 2 year warranty isn't overly generous for gloves costing as much as these, but based on my experience of the Rukka suit, I decided to go with these as I've had my fill of cheap gear which lets in water and looks like a dustbin liner after a year or two. I wouldn't recommend these as a 3 season glove as they will cook your hands in anything hotter than a dull day in the UK (I use the Argosaurus for anything other than hot days) but as an unheated winter glove, they are probably about as good as it gets.Read more
Rukka - perfection
Needed a replacement for my Held (twin chamber gloves) these were the same price with a very nice 10% off voucher from SBS! Couldn't resist and so far not disappointed! On very cold rides (1-2c) you can choose between having your hands in a thick winter gloves where insulation/thickness is the same all round or using the second chamber which gives better feel on the grips whilst keeping the back of your hands protected from the breeze! Heated grips keep my palms warm! The gloves just shoot quality which is be expected at the price. Can't recommend enough!! Service from SBS faultless as usual!!Read more
Awesome pair of winter gloves, to start they felt a bit bulky but after the first ride I got used to them after coming from lighter summer gloves. Well put together as you would expect. Would recommend! As always SB were bang on With delivery and service.Read more
Hey :) I wanted to really test these gloves out before leaving a review as I did find some of the reviews I read not that informative(gulp hope mine is!) SO, First purchase from SBS & I can say that Sophie is 10 out of 10 - great knowledge & understanding & what she didn't she got an answer for me rather quickly - thank you :) The gloves themselves are like a work of engineering art. Utterly lovely, quality is 100% present in every respect, well made, fantastic materials & look & feel like the price they command 5* without doubt. The concept of a warm pocket & a grip pocket on paper is amazing. I can also confirm that these gloves are 100% waterproof - tested at (legal) speed in rain/drizzle. 5* It took a while to get used to their physical size - I ride a 99 R1 and found that my fingers were hitting the levers so I had to adjust the way I grip/levers to feel right which took some getting used to. I have no issue accessing controls like some other reviewers have mentioned. The actual fit of the glove is good on hands but a little tight on the fingers & my left little finger I now hold away from the clutch as it feels like I'm stretching my finger & it feels tight. It is odd that although both my hands measure exactly the same, the left glove doesn't feel as natural as the right. It is a thick and heavy glove and due to this it does feel like you're wearing oven gloves even if you're using grip mode as the warm lining is a bit intrusive. They are also a challenge if you have a jacket with a tight cuff. I have a Richa jacket and whist you can get one glove under the cuff trying to get the other one in as a long and challenging process. In the cold ok but in the rain it is massively frustrating. There's a Rukka logo patch on the the glove and it's just a douch to try and wiggle under but this is only if it's raining otherwise seal your cuffs and pull it over - no wind draft. Riding in plus 4 degree conditions is ok, riding below my fingers feel cold. I only commute 8 miles and you can feel that if it was much more than these gloves would be a perhaps not what you would hope for but I've yet to go a massive distance in these conditions. It's like your hands stay the same temperature inside them as you put your hands in them. I thought that they would warm up as I went a long - cold hands in stay cold. I"ve never spent this much on a pair of gloves & I was expecting they would be like God's own chosen ones but as amazing as they are I'm not 100% blown away. These are 3 season gloves not winter gloves - I was really tempted by short cuffed heated gloves but was put off by the thought of wires going through my jacket. I imagine that I will have to add heated grips to my R1 which is an extra expense to get that toastie feeling which makes me then think that I could have got a cheaper pair of gloves & the grips & be happy & warm. If you're touring with heated grips and all the mod cons then these gloves are 100% amazing, if, like me you ride for fun/commuting all year round then maybe not the best option hence the 4 not 5 stars.Read more
These are the first pair of winter gloves I have ever spent over £120 on, so far they seem good but not the all singing all dancing super glove I had pictured in my head. Build quality is good, comfort good, feel is not as bad as some reviewers have suggested especially as I usually wear motocross gloves so I was not expecting to have the same dexterity. I still felt a bit of a chill in a couple of fingers which is my only gripe, but they're waterproof, and maybe I was expecting too much. The visor wipe is OK on visors but I found it useless with goggles. Armour is good compared to the other winter gloves I looked at and gave me confidence in them when I tried them on. Some reviewers commented on the finger length being too long but I thought they were fine, if anything a couple of more mm would be better. I would recommend them to a friend but I do think they are a little overpriced, hence 4 stars.Read more

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).
