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.

2 In 1 technology

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.

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!

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.

Worth the bucks
The gear geeks at RevZilla are correct: Order one size up.
Terrific winter gloves, fit is spot on. VERY comfortable, adjustments galore.
