We report charge and thermal transport measurements on ultra clean single crystals of the superconductor with the hidden-order state URu$$_2$$Si$$_2$$. The results provide strong evidence for a new type of unconventional superconductivity with two distinct gaps having different nodal topology. We propose a gap function with chiral $$d$$-wave form. We also demonstrate that a distinct flux line lattice melting transition with outstanding characters occurs well below the upper critical fields even at sub-Kelvin temperature.
