Most things are made in China these days, fact of life. Its not the country of origin on the label that would put me off a Rukka suit it's the price tag. I'm not short of a bob or 2 but £1700 on a suit seems insane to me. Think I've sang the praises of the RST adventure 2 in a previous thread, not really sure what else anyone could stand to gain with a suit more than 3x the price? The RST has never let water in, its never had any pulled threads, it fits very well and it looks good.

My belief is once you've gone past the £4-500 bracket the safety of the suit is stagnating until you introduce airbags. With a rukka you're paying for a brand name and a top class warranty.

Just to set the record straight.
Metzeler    Racetec                Made in Germany
Metzeler    Roadtec 01s         Made in Germany     

Cannot comment on other Metzeler Tyres, but Im ok with them even if they were made in China.

Strange side line to this. It appears that some of the front 01s are made in china,   :435:

Only gear I know of that's not made in China (or Vietnam) is Aerostich.
