We show that the charge and thermal transport measurements on ultraclean crystals of URu$$_2$$Si$$_2$$ reveal a number of unprecedented superconducting properties. The uniqueness is best highlighted by the peculiar field dependence of thermal conductivity including the first order transition at $$H_{rm c2}$$ with a reduction of entropy flow. This is a consequence of multi-band superconductivity with compensated electronic structure in the hidden order state of this system. We provide strong evidence for a new type of unconventional superconductivity with two distinct gaps having different nodal topology.
