Rukka Apollo Gore-Tex X-Trafit Gloves
great looking and comfortable
I've had the opportunity to ride with the gloves several times since purchasing them. They are very comfortable. They are also very hot in the summer heat. No airflow whatsoever, however I wasn't expecting any. The only suggestion for Rukka I could make would be to lengthen the thinner of the two velcro straps. They look great and the leather is very soft. I would buy them again.

I typically wear an XL but needed an 11 in this Rukka. Not as flexible as summer gloves, but that's to be expected. Wrist closure could be a 1/4" longer but not a problem coming out of strap holder. Wrist closure really helps to keep glove on. Can't wait to see how cold they will go here in Florida.

Excellent Gloves. Perfect fit, excellent protection. They don't flow any air, but they don't flow any water either. 100% water proof. They are very durable, I've had mine over a year and a half now, but they do fade pretty bad. I imagine that depends on your riding, but I ride all the time rain or shine 9-10mo. out of the year. The fading is only from the reflective stripe on the back of the hand to the cuff. Probably sun fading when you think about it. I imagine you can prevent this by treating the leather with any off the shelf protectant though.

Great looking, great feel, well made gloves
Let's start out with the sizing. I ordered a pair of size 8 and guess what... I had to return them.. Sorry Revz... Was having a really hard time putting them on ..I did get the left hand on ..super super tight... I think I am a size 9 but unfortunately, they are out of stock until April .. REvz staff was very helpful....
I measured my hand. 8.25 around ..... I tried my friends rev it roadstar GTX in medium... Perfect !.. I'm a large in AStar apex drystar, dainese 4 stroke and carbon cover I'm a medium.... So I guess I will be a 9 in rukka
These gloves look great. Very good quality. Very good protection. Wish the palm were a but beefier with maybe another layer of goat. The palm slider was HUGH ! ... Not sure I liked it...sure not everyone s cup of tea. Great stretch everywhere ...had I got the right I would love them
GTX Xtrafit is one of the greatest thing since cupcakes...... You don't feel it at all... Great grip feel... No thermal in these gloves.... late spring, summer, early fall..... Heated grips will stretch them out. By the way I'm in NYC ..... Coldddd winters....I hate it .....
Price is steep but your hands are way more expensive than your gloves ..... Ride with the best protection you can afford and ride safe !!!....... My friend went to REvzilla headquarter and picked up the Merlin jacket..he is crazy and I am envy

Very happy with this purchase. Am a size 9 in Revit, hand circumference 8.4 inch hence bordering on size 10 but ordered a 9 and they fit great - a bit snug, but after breaking in they will be just perfect. Rode them in 10C and my hands got cold after an hour - they are definitely meant for 15C and above I'd think. Not had a chance to test waterproofness yet. As for protection I'd comfortably wear these at highway speeds, feel like they will protect well should the worst happen. Thanks Revzilla for the great reviews.

Fantastic for wet weather...
I have been an avid user of the BMW Pro Summer gloves for awhile now and wear a size 8-8.5. However, I ordered a pair of Rukka Apollo gloves when I could not find the BMW ones anymore. I wear a size 10 Rukka and find the fit to be very nice indeed. This pair of gloves feel a lot more solid than the BMW ones. The armour makes me feel a lot more protected and the leather is also more substantial. I do not feel any discomfort when riding as long as I am careful about how I tighten that wrist strap. There is a pressure point if I do over-tighten it but it feels perfectly fine if I do not over-tighten. I will recommend this glove for anyone needing wet weather protection. I have worn this for about 10 months now and am loving it. The torrential rain here comes down in sheets and my hands have remained dry (albeit a little cold sometimes). Highly recommended.
