Rukka promises "T-shirt effect" with new summer suit

Published: 24 July 2017

For 2017 the folk at Rukka have released a new motorbike suit for summer, the Forsair. 

The suit is made from wide-meshed, air permeable Knitted Cordura AFT allowing the wind to get through with no resistance. 

According to the Finnish company, this also means the wide-mesh system will keep your body cool while allowing sweat to evaporate freely.

At the sleeves, sides of the textile jacket and at the trouser legs and seat area Knitted Cordura AFT Plus is used; this is more coarse with a higher abrasion resistance. 

The innovation doesn't stop there. The suit features Rukka D3O Air joint protectors which multiply their crash protection in the very moment of impact and with a back protector sleeve the suit can be upgraded with either a Rukka Fullback or Allback protector. 

Only stocked in black, the jacket comes with a six-year warranty priced £379.99.

Similar to Rukka Airman

The Forsair is made from similar materials to Rukka's Airman jacket, also part of the AirPower range. 

Also offering a "T-shirt feel", the AirMan concept is two jackets-in-one with dual functionality during hot and cold conditions.
