Rukka R-Star 2-In-1 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 strap provide positive closure

great design would recommend it to everyone who rides in any kind of weather November 24, 2014
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. November 10, 2014
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 June 30, 2014
great quality, but !!! They are extremely well made but they are bulky and have very little feel. The gauntlets are very short and hard to pull over jacket cuffs. They are fairly warm but my finger tips tinkle after 20 min. in 30 degree ride. I would not buy again! January 7, 2014
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. December 16, 2013
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. October 30, 2013
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! March 2, 2013
Nice in theory 1. The fit is really small, XXL in other brands fit me large, XXL in Rukka fits very tight and the fingers are too short. 2. Even tho fingers are too small inside there is enough excess material to catch the break lever when trying to position fingers on the break or clutch. 3. The visor wiper is waaay to short. It is practically useless. 4. On the plus side they are warm and are water proof but I think I could have gotten this feature from a glove that's significantly cheaper. November 20, 2012

Cheers!

mitch p: 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.

MARK P: Hi Paul.

I'd love to help you, but unfortunately I have no idea what size my hand is :(

I can tell you that these gloves are fantastic. There wouldn't be room for me to wear a heated glove liner comfortably, and I think you may find that the combo of the lining of these rukka gloves + the liner may end up being too thick between your hand and the bike grips.

I ride all winter in NY, and while the Rukkas won't keep your fingers from quickly getting very cold when riding in freezing temperatures, they're better than any non-electric glove I've ever tried before, and the leather and lining and everything are super-top quality.

Hope that helps.

A S: I followed the sizing guide and they fit perfectly after some break-in. The gloves are so warm, I am not sure you will require heated liners. Feb 5, 2014

John N: Hello Paul S. I purchased a pair of Rukka 2 winter gloves and sized them based on the "Size Chart" found on Revzilla's webpage. The gloves fit the circumfrence of my hand but are much too short for my fingers and I can not wear them. If you plan to wear additional liners, you will most likely nedd to "size up". Unfortunatly, I pulled the tags off of the gloves and was not able to return them for a refund. If you do buy this glove or any product from Revzilla, make certain that you keep the tags on them and retain all shipping pakaging. John Newcastle, CA Feb 5, 2014

A shopper asked: 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. Nov 10, 2014

David M: 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!

Vance H: I have the Rukka. The gauntlet is not huge in diameter. Short fingers should have no problems at all. The two-chamber feature is good to have with my bikes that have heated grips.
The sizing between various Rukka gloves has caused me to start buying two sizes (10 & 11) and to return one.
Be aware that overly tight gloves will go against prudence in colder weather, as space for an insulated layer of air is required to continue being warm for a longer period of time.

Ian O: I recently bought the rukka's and used them on a ride from Boston to Torontio on an Indian Chieftain. The weather hit around 40F on the low side and My hands were warm. Keep in mind that I had a fairing on the bike so no direct wind. Also got some rain but they were perfectly dry. The glove construction is excellent. The Klim's had some bad reviews so I stayed away. rukka's gear is great quality in my experience. Nov 10, 2014

Ian O: I also have the rukka's lobster gloves which are awesome for cold weather and roomy enough for heated glove liners. I take both sets with me on cold rides. Nov 10, 2014

A shopper asked: 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.?

Matthew S: 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!

James B: I have the Rukka R 2 in 1's. No knowledge of the Held gloves.
The Rukkas are top shelf gloves, very we'll made IMO. I use only the compartment closest to the palm (no bunching in the palm this way, good tactile feel) since I also have heated grips. Very comfortable this way. Riding in the high 40's no problem. No experience with wet weather yet. I would recommend them for a cold weather gauntlet glove. Size runs a tad small so if your on the fence size-wise order one size larger.
Good luck.

Bruce B: I also purchased the Rukka glove to ride in cold weather. I ride a K1200rs with heated grips and enjoy them. The gloves work effectively, transfer heat well and integrate well with the heated grips. They are thick with the double lining and take a period of time to break in to get the feel you are asking about. Once you get comfortable with them they are very effective riding in 30 degree weather. Oct 12, 2014

Christopher G: I have heated grips and when I use the "warm" mode my hands are actually colder because it insulates them from the heat. And, MUCH less tactile control. Wouldn't buy them again. Oct 12, 2014
