Cordura® is a nylon yarn made out of 100% polyamide fibres. The raw fibres are cut, respun and finally woven to a fabric. Cordura® is available in many different fibre strengths and has much higher abrasion resistance than regular nylon. Rukka employs only Cordura® with a minimum fibre strength of at least 500 denier, raising safety standards to a very high level.
Cordura® AFT, developed by Rukka in collaboration with DuPont, has absolutely convinced experiencedd touring riders on their travels all over the globe in recent years. Just as with tried-and-tested regular Cordura®, high-performance polyamide fibres form the basis of a lightweight design that has an extremely high resistance against wear and tear as well as abrasion. However, the AFT short for 'air flow technology' points out the enhanced riding comfort that is experienced especially in hot climates. In contrast to woven Cordura®, the Cordura® AFT is knitted to form a mesh structure, resulting in a fabric whose air permeability is 1.8 times higher than that of regular Cordura®.
Rukka Air Cushion System acts as a climate buffer and helps reduce condensation.
Gore-Tex® Infinium™ N2S - An outer layer of Infinium™ Windstopper membrane keeps the wind out while retaining breathability. The inner, knitted layer conducts moisture away from the skin, preventing chill-out through evaporation. Infinium™ Windstopper N2S (Next-to-Skin) products can be worn either directly on the skin to serve as functional undergarments or above the functional underwear to form and additional, warming layer.
Gore-Tex® 2in1 Gloves - User can change between direct grip and warmth. Extra warmth and weather protection for colder riding conditions. Fully water- and windproof and breathable Gore-Tex® gloves. Two different chambers offers an easy and convenient change between direct grip and warmth. In the warm chamber the insulation provides optimum warmth all sides of the fingers. In the grip chamber the insulation is only on the back of the fingers. This means high tactility and increased breathability.
Rukka® Seamless underwear ensures the best possible functionality for the chosen use. Efficient moisture-transferring capacity, good fitting provided by seamless knitting technology and anatomic cut support the activity and make it feel like a second skin.
Merono Wool is excellent at regulating body temperature, especially when worn against the skin. The wool provides warmth, without overheating the wearer. It draws moisture away from the skin. Wool absorbs water (up to 1/3 its weight) and it retains wamth when wet. Like most wools, merino contains lanolin, which has antibacterial properties. Merino is one of the softest types of wool available, due to finer fibers and smaller scales. Merino has an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio compared to other wools.
