Performance has always been at the heart of Rukka. Since the company’s inception in a small farmhouse in Kokkola Finland back in 1950, Rukka has been dedicated to producing cutting edge activewear for outdoor enthusiasts that can stand up to the rigors of life and mother nature. Beginning with athletic gear and transitioning to waterproof apparel in the 1960’s, Rukka has a long and storied history of developing industry leading technologies and materials to best support a life lived outdoors.
With a robust history of producing tough motorcycle rain gear, Rukka was one of the first companies to make use of the Gore-Tex waterproof and breathable membrane for motorcycle gear, launching its first Gore-Tex line in 1986. Since then, Rukka has expanded its line to include some of the toughest gear on the planet and continues to combine their innovative designs with leading technical materials like Gore-Tex, Armacor, Cordura, SuperFabric, Windstopper and D3O.
