Rukka Bartlett GTX gloves in black Product Information

If you ride a retro bike, a café-racer, a scrambler, a cruiser or a genuine classic of some description, you don’t want to ride around wearing some technical-looking glove with a carbon knuckles, palm sliders and the like. Gloves like that just look wrong on certain types of bike.

Until recently, nobody produced what we would call a stylish and subtle, technical-quality, waterproof glove. There were, and are, lots of cool-looking gloves on the market, but there are very few that came out of the top draw, and even fewer that come with a laminated membrane. In 2020, Richa released their Atlantic Urban; and that ticked all the boxes. But, for 2021 Rukka has introduced this glove: the Bartlett.

It is all leather, and comes equipped with a Gore-tex laminated membrane. You get a hard, knuckle protector, extra layers of leather on the palm, a touchscreen-sensitive index finger and a Velcro strap to secure the wrist. In terms of their specs., the Richa and the Rukka are very similar. The Rukka is a supremely comfortable glove, and it is here where it scores perhaps over the Richa. The Rukka is simply the nicer glove to wear; and that can only really come down to the superior quality of the leather used by Rukka. It makes for a more wearable glove. Unfortunately, though, it does not come in brown, so if you want a brown glove, you’re going to have to go for the Richa.



  • All-leather construction
  • Gore-Tex laminated, waterproof membrane
  • Hard knuckle protector
  • Extra layers of leather on palm
  • Single strap at wrist
  • Touchscreen-sensitive index finger


Rukka gloves have a 2 year warranty

Andrew D-based: Lovely Gloves but........

I wanted a pair of Autumn Spring gloves to replace an excellent but ageing pair of Daineses. These are absolutely lovely to wear, so what is the but? The wrist-strap does not not work properly and this is the only fastening - the strap is too long, so that when you pull it tight the velcro parts cannot contact each other. If you then adjust it looser to fix it in place, it is too loose. You can just pull the gloves straight off. They are lovely, as I said and I will wear them, but am surprised that I did not spot this obvious defect in the shop and that Rukka do not seem to realise either. This would be very easy to correct for next year - you need to push them on this ML!

Andy H: Excellent all-round glove

Purchased these a couple of months ago as I wanted a simple, stylish full leather glove that could be used in all weathers. I ride a retro naked bike and these fit perfectly with the look. Well, the summer has provided ample opportunity to test in all sorts of weather and I have to say these are the best all round glove I have ever used. I've had Rukka equipment before and these are a quality item. Extremely comfortable, waterproof and breathe well. They are also wearing in nicely with the leather conforming and becoming even more comfortable. Time will tell how well they last but so far so good.

Adrian: Great gloves

Riding a cruiser, these gloves work perfectly. The leather is soft and supple, and the gore-grip inside the gloves increases the feel and feedback through the bikes levers. The gloves are a bit shorter than I thought so my jacket goes over the top - not a problem. Have not yet tested in rain, but in cool weather these work perfect. Sizing is pretty much spot on - I wear a size 10 XL in Held and BMW gloves, and a size 10 in these Rukka gloves fits just right thanks to Motolegends for recommending the size as I was not able to try on in person. Highly recommended, if you want a black leather glove that's protective but doesn't shout at you, this might be the one!
