From our lab to your lab
Striving to continue the evolution of performance athletic apparel, GORE® wear is proud to combine two of the biggest innovations in fabric technology into one cutting edge garment:
The GORE® C7 GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ Stretch Jacket brings together the lightweight, breathable, and durably waterproof GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ Fabric and combines it with the new GORE-TEX Fabric with stretch technology.
This low force stretchable material is a new kind of GORE-TEX fabric that means we can create a jacket with a closer, more aerodynamic fit whilst still being durably waterproof.
Together, these two technologies synergize to produce a cycling jacket with unbeatable performance.
We push the limits of product innovation, so that you can stretch your goals beyond what you’re used to.
We revolutionised the market for weather protection with the introduction of GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ jackets for cyclists and runners: the new era is ultra-lightweight and ideal for compact packing, GORE® GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ jackets are extremely breathable and durably waterproof with a persistent beading surface.
The great thing about GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ product technology is its outer material: instead of a conventional textile surface SHAKEDRY™ jackets have the GORE-TEX membrane on the outside. This makes the jacket even lighter and more breathable, but keeps it waterproof and allows raindrops to permanently just drip off. Until recently it had only been possible to offer the jackets in black. We have managed, however, to push boundaries further and can now offer a variety of colours and jackets with neon inserts for increased visibility.
The brand new GORE® C7 GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ STRETCH Jacket is not only extremely breathable, lightweight and durably waterproof with a persistent beading surface, but is now engineered with GORE-TEX STRETCH Technology for greater freedom of movement, and unbeatable performance.
TOGETHER WE #ALWAYSEVOLVE
New GORE-TEX Fabric with Stretch Technology has been engineered to create a closer fitting and more sculpted jacket. By carefully and strategically placing these panels alongside GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ Fabric, the overall weight of the jacket is kept very low, but the bulk and noise of the jacket is reduced.
The result is a closely fitting jacket that will flap less in the wind, hug the body closer, and provide unrestricted movement while undertaking training or racing.
The GORE-TEX Fabric with Stretch Technology panels are placed in key positions. Under the arms and on the upper back means a rider can move from riding on the tops of their bars or in the hoods, to a fully tucked aerodynamic position in the drops and the jacket will respond by matching that position.
On the front of the jacket, stretch panels above the hips reduce the amount the jacket will move during normal pedalling. This has a twofold effect. Firstly, the noise of the jacket is reduced greatly, and secondly, chaffing and rubbing is minimized because there is less bunching of material.
