Rukka women’s gloves “Virve” with X-Trafit

Chic, comfortable and safe

Scandinavian design, Rukka quality and Gore technology sum up to a pair of textile gloves that look great, feel comfortable and keep your hands safe and dry. They also stand out because of their perfect grip feel and their unique fit for women’s hands.

The X-Trafit technology by Gore denotes a three-layer-laminate, consisting of the upper material, a wind- and waterproof as well as highly breathable Gore-Tex climate membrane and a liner. This construction creates some grave advantages: In precipitation the gloves do not get soaked, protecting the rider’s hands from cooling out and vastly quickening the gloves’ drying. Plus, this layout makes for an excellent grip feel, essential for a well-controlled actuation of brake, clutch and switches. Moreover, pulling out the liner when putting off the gloves, is a matter of the past.

One of the six pairs of Rukka gloves featuring the X-Trafit technology bears the Finnish women’s name Virve. The model, made from extremely abrasion-resistant high-quality Cordura upper material, excels by its comprehensive features: Integrated detailing for knuckles, scaphoid and fingers increases safety, while coated fabric improves grip on the palms. Stretch inserts and sturdy Velcro strips on the cuffs and wrists provide for perfect fit. When it is raining, the visor wiper on the left-hand index finger always guarantees clear vision. In addition, touchscreen fingertips for thumbs and index fingers on both gloves allow operating a GPS system or a smart phone with gloves on.

Available in black with grey or pink pipings, the women’s gloves are available in the sizes 6 through 10 at well assorted Rukka dealers.
