Perfect for demanding bikers: with the new Shield-R textile suit, the Finnish clothing specialists complement their particularly safe Armaprotection product line in 2021. The jacket and pants score with a three-layer laminate made of Gore-Tex® Pro and an abrasion- and tear-resistant Cordura. Sensitive areas are also reinforced with Armacor and Keprotec® fabric layers. The complete equipment with Rukka D3O® Air XTR protectors offers maximum protection, while eight ventilation on jacket and four on trousers in combination with the Outlast® lining ensure the best climate.
The new Shield-R textile suit, further expanding the Rukka Armaprotection range, also impresses with these brand-typical features. Thanks to three-layer Gore-Tex® Pro laminate, the jacket and trousers are waterproof, windproof, and yet highly breathable. Maximum abrasion resistance thanks to high-tech Armacor and Keprotec® material reinforcements at the elbows, shoulders, knees, and hips. The pants also feature heat- and abrasion-resistant leather inserts on the inside of the knees and in the seat area.
In addition, Armacor product technology combined with the high-quality protectors developed together with D3O® and manufactured according to Rukka specifications, provides excellent impact protection. Rukka D3O® Air XTR Level 2 protectors on shoulders, elbows, back, hips, knees, and shins, plus D3O® CP1 Level 1 chest protector offer the best possible safety.
The temperature-regulating Outlast® lining has a warming effect in cold temperatures and a cooling effect in warm temperatures, thus forming a temperature-balancing buffer layer for the body. Another comfort plus is the Rukka AirCushion system on the seat of the trousers. It forms a thin air cushion on the contact surface with the seat and therefore reduces unpleasant condensation. Together with Rukka Antiglide system of Keprotec®, which prevents annoying slipping on the seat surface, the Shield-R trousers thus ensure the best possible seating comfort on long rides. The integrated Rukka ATS Gore-Tex® stretch collar provides additional wind protection when needed and can be stowed in the collar pocket.
Various adjustment options allow jacket and pants to be individually adapted, additional stretch inserts increase comfort. Adjustment of the upper arm width with press studs for flutter-free highway riding. The jacket and trousers can be connected together with a long zipper or a crotch strap, additionally suspenders are included with the trousers. Four waterproof pockets (1x inside, 2x front, 1x back) offer plenty of storage space.
The Rukka Shield-R jacket is available in two colors total black and black with silver details, and trousers in black. Both available in the sizes 46-66 and trousers with three different leg lengths short, normal and long.
