Rukka R-Star 2 In 1 Gore-Tex Gloves Videos

Rukka R-Star 2-In-1 GTX Gloves

The R-Star Gloves feature Rukka's 2-In-1, dual chamber system. The rider can choose between two separate entries, offering direct grip or extra warmth. In the warm chamber, the extra insulation provides optimum warmth over all sides of the fingers. In the grip chamber, the insulation is only on the back of the fingers. This means a higher level of tactility and increased breathability.

Features:

  • Full cowhide leather construction
  • Fully waterproof, windproof and breathable Gore-Tex gloves
  • 2 In 1 technology
  • Fleece lining
  • Extra warmth for colder riding conditions with light insulation
  • Knuckle protection of carbon fiber with leather overlay
  • Scaphoid protection of Super Fabric
  • Visor wiper in left hand
  • Waterproof zipper and VELCRO® brand strap provide positive closure
  • The Rukka warranty is valid for 2 (two) years from the date of purchase against faults in material or workmanship

50 degrees to 25 degrees. everyday commuter...spirited.
this review will be simple and to the point. I purchased this glove close to a month ago. I use it everyday mid afternoon and early morning. I commute only on motorcycle everyday the work week and so far the weather conditions have been variable which is excellent.the coldest weather I've ridden in with these gloves has been 27 to 25 degrees Fahrenheit and as warm as high fifties mid sixties. Not only has his glove kept me extremely dry but it can easily keep you warm in 40 and 30 degree weather.
I read reviews all the time of people complaining that their fingertips get so frozen in the thirties while the writing I find I can ride easily between 60 and 90 miles an hour with his glove in temperature is as low as I have mentioned in this review. Of course at a certain point you'll start to feel the cold through your fingertips but honestly being a resilient human being makes it easy 2 look past what your fingertips may feel and just enjoy the ride in an amazing all weather glove.
I have previously owned A 2 piece very thin Harley Davidson leather glove with a thin insulating layer. This glove I wore for 2 winters in Maryland and if I ever felt my hands or fingers freeze and feel painful because of the cold I.e the cold wind, it was then. this glove blew my expectations and all my previous gloves out of the water...just an excellent buy for the cold winter and fall. Cheers to Rukka and the RevZilla team thank you...ride on.

Great concept but I'll stick with 2 separate gloves
I loved the idea about the two chambers, but returned them as they are quite uncomfortable.
They are definitely very warm, but that extra layer of fabric on your palm when using the top chamber makes the grip quite uncomfortable.
The gauntlet was too small to wear over a jacket and too big to fit underneath the jacket and that zipper doesn't do much either. Velcro or a bigger adjustment would have made it better, and there's no need for a waterproof zipper as underneath is still a Gore-Tex layer.
The quality of the leather and the protection are excellent. Sizing runs a bit small

Rukka R-Star 2 In 1 Gloves
I am using heated grips so this is perfect for above freezing. I ride 30 mins in the morning and its ok. I use heated gloves below freezing. As you have a liner inside, the tips of the liner are stitched to the end of the glove's ends so the tips have an extra length which means its a tad longer than your fingers. The thumb gets cold first as you don't have good contact with the heated grips. Very tactile grip and extra protection opposite palm of hands. A little expensive than most gloves. Material, protection and build are very good.

Great for serious cold weather
These are high quality gloves and worth the price, I think. The insulation and protection features are excellent and I love the 2-in-1 option of more grip or more warmth. I've done 10,000 km in these gloves through temps at and below freezing. The 'grippier' 2-in-1 option worked really well with the heated grips but when things got really cold, I went with the warmer 2-in-1 option and felt comfortable traveling at moderate speeds in temperatures around freezing.

Great gloves with one real flaw...
I love a lot about this glove (protection & warmth) but I do wish they included a double wrist closure to tighten up the cuff. I ordered a size 13 and the cuff fits loosely around my jacket. Wish they allowed for a way to tighten the cuff like pretty much any other winter glove in this price range. If you really want to seal in that warm air you have to fit the cuff under your Jacket which may be a problem for some.

In fact if you're riding a sport bike with clip-ons I can't really recommend these gloves in the event that you do get caught in heavy rain during the colder months because you would really want to tighten these gloves over your jacket and you don't have that option here.

Otherwise these gloves are great and offer more protection than most winter gloves. I just wish the super fabric extended more into the base of the palm like a typical slider but I can live with it.

Overall I'm happy with these gloves and recommend them for anyone in the standard riding position.

The gear geeks at RevZilla are correct: Order one size up.

Terrific winter gloves, fit is spot on. VERY comfortable, adjustments galore.

Outstanding protection & Quality
These gloves are awesome. Protection and leather quality are outstanding. While I did not get a lot of time with them before a kind person decided to run a red light which lead me t-boning him. Well the knuckle protection worked perfectly, I did not actually notice any damage until I got home. One issue that I have is they are a little on the thick side but for a winter glove they should work well

very happy
Ordered one size larger than what I needed and fit was perfect. They are decent cold weather gloves, but I guess we all have different circulation and cold thresholds. Have worn them at 35 degrees for maybe an hr or two at different speeds and they do a good job. But fingers did get a chill, but by no means uncomfortable. Probably no substitute for heated gloves for long day rides below 40 degrees. That being said I think these gloves are great for early, early spring into early summer and late summer into late, late fall. Fit great and feel very protected. Grip on handlebar is decent too with the extra padding, still feel like I have a good grip on bars.

Excellent Winter Glove
I have had a great experience with these gloves. For one, the fit and look good. They are well built and seem durable. The double glove feature is unique and works well for me. I did some 20F rides this winter, and wore them most of the spring also. Although price is up there, it is another good product from Rukka

Excellent Winter Glove
I used these gloves the past two weekends - first weekend the temp range was 48 - 60F. This past weekend the temp ranges was 42 - 50F with the wind chill dropping the morning temp to 36F. I put my left hand in the center chamber and right hand in the lower chamber. The right hand definitely had a better feel but the finger tips started to get cold after about 45 minutes(no heated grips). The left hand stayed warm the entire time. I switched the right hand to the center chamber and both hands stayed warm and comfortable for the ride - about 2 hrs of back-road highway speed riding. I would definitely recommend these gloves....they are much better than the cortech scarab that I also own. My buddy who also has a pair of scarab gloves had cold hands. No complaints from me with my Rukka R Star.

Two minor issues - 1) sizing is a bit weird. I normally wear a large but ordered a size 11. The thumb, index and middle fingers fit fine but the ring and pinky finger are a tad too long. I think a size 10 would have been too small. 2) the pull tab on the gauntlet is basically useless. It needs to be larger to allow for more adjustment and would be easier to use.

I would still recommend these gloves. I just hope they work equally as well in the rain....time will tell!

I'm considering this glove, and I would wear a size 10. I intend to wear the Firstgear heated glove liners under this glove, so would they be too tight for a size 10?

Cheers!

Paul S on Feb 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I tied these and the Held Twin Gore-Tex 2-in-1 Gloves. I really wanted to like these more, but I found these to have too much material in the palm of the hand. This would always bunch up when holding the grips, creating very annoying and uncomfortable folds in the glove between my hand the grip. The Held glove didn't do that.

As for liners, maybe others have a different view, but personally I've found little to recommend them. Gloves are designed with their own lining, and adding another layer of fabric - even a very thin one - the glove wasn't designed for just makes them very tight fitting and stiff - and not really much warmer. You also have a loose sheet of liner fabric inside the glove, creating the potential for it to bunch up or crease. And getting a bigger glove to accommodate the liner means the fingers will be too long. Not to mention the hassle of dealing with not just the gloves but the loose liner when taking them on or off. Just get a good glove that's as warm as you need it and don't think about liners. That's my two cents anyway.
Does anyone know how the bulkiness in the warmer chamber compares with a dedicated winter glove, such as the Rev'It Sirius? The pair I have has bulky finger tips which seem to drag under the brake and clutch lever as I move from the grip to either lever (whilte testing them in the garage).
Adam B on Nov 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I also noted a bulkiness in the fingertips, whether in the "warm" chamber or the "grip" chamber, as compared to my warm weather gloves. I can't really compare the Rukkas to Sirius or other winter gloves. I got used to them pretty quickly.
I commute year round on a standard bike, currently the new Super Duke, and I want a warm glove. I'm considering the three premium twin-chambered ones, Klim Elite, Held Twin and Rukka R-Star. I'm satisfied with the protection afforded by all three. Warmth is the most important feature. Which one for that purpose? Secondary is fit. I wear an XL, but my fingers are rather short; however, better snug than loose. My jacket has a large sleeve diameter, so the larger the gauntlet, the better, but it appears all three would be large enough. (I wear the gauntlet over the sleeve, of course.) The special fit of the Gore-Tex in the Klim is an attractive feature. I want to buy asap, so I anxiously await your guidance.
A shopper on Nov 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I can only speak from the perspective of the Rukka. I did however consider the gloves you mentioned. I made my decision based on price,protection, warmth, wind and rain protection. I don't care so much for the gauntlet size, although I want something medium in length, definitely not long. I wear multiple layers so I need space for the gauntlet to go over...which it does just fine. The glove fits amazing, and within a couple of weeks it has fit more and more snug and has developed more dexterity. As per warmth, so far from 25 degrees to 67 degrees these gloves have been warm and awesome. I usually spend about 30-50 minuets computing...if I'm lucky, on a weekend I can get there in 8-12 minutes... Regardless in rain, with debris, in t he cold, this glove has outperformed my expectations...and I usually refrain from expectations although the price of this puppy made me think twice...now I know Rukka does its gear right!
Happy hunting!
How much of a difference is this glove compared to the Held Twin Gore-Tex 2-in-1 Gloves. I have heated grips and ride until it snows.
I like to feel the controls as best a possible with out any bunching, binding or pinching. I do not have a distributor for ether glove so your reviews are all I have to go on. Hopefully some one has tried both and has formed some type of review that they can offer. Tough choice since both look great and have the same functions in mind.?
A shopper on Oct 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I actually purchased both as I wasn't sure what size to get and which would work best… I wear a size XXXL glove usually so my choices are sometimes limited. I ordered both these Rukkas and the HELDs in their largest size and I decided to go with the Rukkas in the end. It was a tough decision and they were both very, very good at keeping my hands warm (well, not frozen anyway) whilst maintaining good feel (as good as you're gonna get with a winter glove).
I made a couple of crappy videos about them (but I'm not allowed to post links, so look on youtube for 'evo moto (user DTCevo)' and there're three videos about these gloves.

Just to make your purchase more difficult for you ;) you'd be happy with either pair I'm sure. I ended up sticking with these Rukkas, but I'd have been happy with the HELD also. I ride all year round, with temps getting down to about 28° (with a wind chill in the teens usually) and doing highway speeds for 25 miles and they hold up…my fingertips do feel the cold, even with heated grips, but that's more to do with the fact that my hands are big and fingers are long so I don't get any heat from the grips.

Hope that helps some!
I am looking for a winter gloves with a high degree of protection and grip for spot-touring ride in cold weather. I am between the Rukka Imatra and the Rukka R-Star. What would you recommend me?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I haven't tried the Imatra, but I like my R-Stars. I don't really ever use the thicker pocket on it. Dexterity is already limited as it is on these gloves. I imagine from looking at it, the Imatra would provide a little more dexterity, possibly at the cost of warmth.
Is this glove warmer than the Jet Road Gore-tex from Alpinestar?
And in regards to sizing, I'm 2XL on the Jet Road and size 11 in the Rukka Hero; should I get the size 11 or 12 in the R-star?
A shopper on Mar 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I wear a size 10 in the R-Star, and usually wear a size Large in most gloves.
Does anyone know if Rukka will make repairs to the R-Star 2-in1? I recently had a indent where the knuckle projection made contact with the ground and rubbed through the leather. No other damage. Hopefully I can send these back and they can repair them.
Kevin P on Feb 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Don't know - why won't you ask them. They're serious people. They sure are interreseted how their product got damaged in order to design it better next time.
I suggest you contact them!
