Gore Bike Wear

  • Gore Bike Wear
    Riding a wave of windproof, water-resistant, breathable race wear, Gore Bike Wear's Windstopper fabric recently revolutionized the cycling industry. With the new Thermium material at the heart of the One Gore Thermium Jacket, the venerable outdoor manufacturer may be poised to do it again. Thermium is basically a Windstopper membrane with the addition of built in insulation, a construction that effectively eliminates the need to pile on multiple base layers while still guaranteeing that your thermal layer stays dry in all but the harshest deluge. Several hundred general outdoor manufacturers have already added the membrane to their repertoire, but the appropriately named One Gore Thermium Jacket is the first instance we've seen of it in the cycling world. As with all quality kit, the details matter, and Thermium's details are impressive. It's a two-layer, windproof, water-repellent, breathable laminate with taped seams--in short, pretty similar to insulated versions of Windstopper. The key difference is that Thermium's insulated layer is upgraded to 80g of Primaloft Gold, making it warmer and higher quality than the stuff used in standard Windstopper. One detail to note is that, unlike Gore-Tex, Gore Thermium isn't waterproof; it's just extremely water-repellent. For cycling, this basically means that it's equal to any kind of weather you'd actually want to be on a bike in. It's also more than capable of handling weather that would make most of us pull over and seek shelter or call up the significant other for a ride home. If you happen to ride into a lake, though, you'll probably get wet. We should note that the One Gore Thermium's extreme wind, water, and cold-protection mean that it's only applicable to, well, the most extreme conditions we'd want to ride in. The Primaloft/Windstopper combination packs a wallop that won't see much use outside of winter's depths; however, if you're one of the brave souls who the local news profiles for commuting through blizza...

    Gore brings its expertise in windproof, waterproof fabrics to a fall rain jacket this year, and the results are as we've come to expect from the dominant brand. After making the name Gore-Tex synonymous with waterproof in colloquial language, the brand set its sights on crafting tailored road and mountain kit, and its One GTX Active Bike Jacket demonstrates an expert combination of effective construction and highly functional fabric. Cut with a slim silhouette and Gore-Tex Active with Shakedry Product Technology, the jacket is ideal for rainy, gusty fall days when you need a layer that will block water and wind without over-insulating. As its name suggests, the Shakedry membrane continuously forces water off the surface of the jacket, allowing Gore to skip the step of adding face fabric that could potentially soak through and instead create a jacket capable of remaining completely dry throughout your ride. While you try to keep cadence through a cold drizzle, a well-shaped collar blocks out water without adding too much bulk, and reflective accents help increase your visibility in the dim light of a rainy day. In the event that the clouds miraculously clear mid-ride, the entire jacket stuffs into its own front zippered pocket, so you can stuff it in your jersey pocket or saddle pack and get on with your ride.

    Gore Bike Wear is celebrating the start of the third decade since it introduced the Giro jacket with the jacket's versatile descendant, the men's 30th Anniversary Phantom 2. 0 SO Jacket. When the Giro debuted, it taught us that rain protection didn't have to be the equivalent of a giant plastic bag, and the Phantom celebrates this heritage by continuing it with even more elemental protection. Gore's venerable Windstopper Soft Shell material is windproof, water-resistant, and breathes to eliminate sweat and water vapor so one hard effort doesn't mean two more hours of cold, clammy moisture under your base layer. The Phantom may be the ideal jacket for training through that base mile dead zone from late fall to early spring. We love Windstopper fabric, but it's hardly a rarity in cycling clothing these days. What really sets the Phantom 2. 0 apart from the legion of jackets using similar materials are the sleeves. With a zip-zip the raglan sleeves come off, exposing short, soft sleeves and converting the Phantom to a jacket that's appropriate for fall or spring. When in full-sleeve mode, the inclusion of stretch panels ensures a restriction-free fit that maintains better coverage while you're stretched out in the drops. The jacket is finished with a zippered underflap at the rear hem to protect you from wheel spray on wet days. Elastic bindings on the cuffs and hem keep the jacket in place, and three rear pockets provide enough storage for all your essentials plus the sleeves if conditions require you to remove them mid-ride. Reflective elements on all sides of the jacket keep you visible in low-light conditions.

    The fleece-lined Gore Bike Wear Power Trail WS SO Jacket extends your singletrack season well into late fall or even early winter. The windproof Windstopper main body fabric is extremely breathable to allow your body to regulate its temperature naturally while it fights off Mother Nature's insidious attacks. The jacket's anatomic cut is designed to drape comfortably on the bike and off, so you can wear the Power Trail jacket during your ride and at the pub for your post-ride beer. Due to the effectiveness of the WindStopper membrane, Gore has included a strategically placed venting zipper and two front ventilation zippers with integrated zippered pockets in order to give you the ability to moderate your temperature. Perhaps the only detail that gives the Power Trail jacket away as a cycling piece is the zippered pocket on the back. There's also a zippered Napoleon pocket on the left breast and small cloth for cleaning your eyewear. The tail is cut a tad longer in order to accommodate your position on the bike, and the lower hem and sleeve cuffs are bound with a simple and comfortable Lycra band. Reflective elements on the shoulders, back, and forearms will also increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.

    Versatility, timeless designs, and the most advanced fabrics available define the new POWER collection from Gore Bike Wear. This line of clothing is for the devoted year-round cyclist who prefers minimal styling and maximum functionality. The Power GT AS Jacket sits at the top of this line, as it was constructed with Gore's renowned Gore-Tex Active technology in order to keep you dry and comfortable in the harshest of riding conditions. The Gore Bike Wear Power GT AS jacket employs Gore-Tex's Active Shell fabric for the paneling, which is one of the most breathable in the Gore-Tex lineup. This material keeps you moving freely and sheltered from the worst downpours. So, let's give it the quick rundown. The jacket is light and packable, fully-waterproof, and of course, breathable. To an extent, you may have thought that this was impossible for a waterproof hardshell. However, all of the variables are there to make the Power GT AS jacket an essential piece for high-energy output, wet-weather riding. And because of the jacket's composition, it's guaranteed to keep you dry. But it also breathes exceptionally well, and it allows you to move freely on the bike. Gore Bike Wear describes the fit as slim, which means that it stays close to the body without being constricting. The elbows are pre-shaped so that they don't tug at the underarms when you reach for the handlebars. Again, Gore Bike Wear took a minimalist approach when designing the Power GT AS jacket, so there's only one zippered pocket placed on the lower back panel. Within this pocket, there's a detachable storage bag (LOKSAK) for sealing off your electronic devices from the elements. The cuffs are adjustable, and there's a partially elasticized hem. And because rainy conditions are often low-light conditions, the Power GT AS Jacket has reflective front and back logos. The Gore Bike Wear Power GT AS Jacket is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black/neon yellow, Red/black, an...

    The Gore Bike Wear Power Trail GT AS Jacket proves that heavyweight weather protection doesn't have to weigh much. The Power Trail is super-lightweight and packable, but it shrugs off Mother Nature's nastiest moods with a guaranteed waterproof breathable membrane.Gore Bike Wear's Power Trail GT AS jacket is made from Gore's patented Gore-Tex Active fabric. This material adheres to Gore's rigorous standards of lightweight, windproof, waterproof, and breathable construction. We understand that this is a tall order, but Gore alone has proven itself capable of commanding such absolutes. The lightweight fabric design allows high breathability and well regulated moisture transfer away from the skin to the outer-layer of the jacket. Not only is the jacket designed to compete with the weather, but it provides a precise anatomic fit as well, so it sits close to the skin without limiting range of motion. The Power Trail jacket features an adjustable hood with a close-fit collar, and an adjustable hem and wrist cuffs to allow the jacket to follow you in and out of the saddle. And although the ALP-X 2. 0 is made for mountainous touring, you're going to have to ride home at some point. That's why Gore's included reflective piping on the sleeves and back, and a reflective logo on the front, back, and collar of the jacket. For storage, the jacket uses a front Napoleon pocket, a zippered sleeve pocket, and a zippered under-flap.

    Protection from the wind and water in a close-fitting, stretchy outer-shell is exactly what you receive with the new Power 2. 0 SO Jacket from Gore Bike Wear. The Power was constructed using the proven WindStopper fabric, and it also incorporates a host of features designed to keep you warm, dry, and comfortable out there on your two-wheeled machine. Similar to other protective outerwear layers in Gore's Power line, the Power 2. 0 SO jacket was constructed using Gore's patented WindStopper Soft Shell fabric. This is essentially a fleece-lined, membrane-backed stretchy material that moves with you while riding. The characteristics of this fabric are ideal for exercising in cool and cold weather, as Soft Shell provides a light, flexible layer of insulation, yet it also blocks the wind and rain with its inner-membrane. WindStopper provides the comfort of a mid-layer and the water-resistance of a shell all in one. Additionally, this material's composition breathes incredibly well, which allows moisture to escape from within, rather than collecting inside and chilling your body like other membrane layers. This means that your body remains warm, dry, and comfortable during all of your rides. Gore Bike Wear describes the fit of the Power 2. 0 SO as slim, which means that it stays close to the body without being constricting. The elbows are pre-shaped so that they don't tug at the underarms when you reach for the handlebars. Again, Gore Bike Wear took a minimalist approach when designing the Power 2. 0 SO jacket, so there are only three pockets on the lower back panel.

    The Gore Bike Wear Element Urban WS SO Men's Jacket provides all the protection you need for dreary two-wheeled excursions with a stylish twist that works just as well braving the elements on foot for a night out. Made of waterproof and windproof WindStopper Soft Shell fabric, this jacket is built tough to keep you dry in even the most inclement weather. A lightweight hood sits close to your head to protect your dome from dampness without any pesky windsail effect while a neon fold-away drop tail protects against wheel spray and provides increased visibility to motorists when you're out under overcast skies. Off the bike, you can tuck the tail away for a more streamlined look. The hem width is adjustable with an elastic drawstring and cordstopper to customize the fit and make sure no wind or rain sneaks in at the waist to chill your midsection. Gore also adds in elastic sleeve cuffs with thumholes, which are a rarity in the cycling jacket world. These let you keep your hands toasty and eliminate that soggy, chilly wrist gap exposure that can plague so many jackets without thumbholes. For those of us that love organization, the Element Urban WS SO Jacket is something of a dream come true. Internal and external pockets abound to hold essentials safely out of the rain while discreetly routing ear bud cables. To cap things off, reflective elements across the front, sleeves, and back of the jacket help keep you visible in low-light and dreary conditions so you can feel safer hitting the road any time of day in any type weather.
