Rukka’s Thund-R Suit Claims Affordable High-Tech

German outfitter Rukka presents the Thund-R suit with Gore-Tex Pro three-layer laminate, and a tough outer layer of Cordura.

The company claims the gear is “absolutely waterproof and extremely breathable.”

The suit features elastic inserts on the knees and forearms, and width adjustments at the knees and hips.

”Impact protection is provided by the comfortable Rukka D3O Air joint protectors, which multiply energy absorption at the moment of impact," according to Rukka.

The jacket also has a pocket for the Air Allback protector.

Both jacket and pants have removable thermal liners. The pants seat has a non-slip Keprotec-Antiglide panel, and the AirCushion interior acts as a climate buffer against the motorcycle’s seat, dissipating condensation. The jacket includes four waterproof pockets.


The suit “will be available at well sorted dealerships by the end of the year,” in black with optional hi-vis yellow trim on the jacket.

“The most pleasing moment at the dealership will be when the dealer quotes the price for the Rukka Thund-R suit,” says Rukka. However, no pricing was listed.
