GORE BIKE WEAR®

The new POWER TRAIL line – yet another reason to keep cycling in the autumn and winter

August 17, 2015

Outfits featuring uncompromising functionality and an optimum fit that still look good – that was the GORE BIKE WEAR® designer’s objective in developing the new POWER TRAIL line. The key to the process of genesis was always to ask yourself whether the product in question would simplify a mountain biker’s life. If there was no clear answer to this question the clothing experts always went right back to square one. There then followed laborious tests, both outside and in the prototype laboratories. The result is more than satisfying. POWER TRAIL combines the unique workmanship of GORE BIKE WEAR® with an innovative look & style, thereby setting new standards in the field of functional mountain-bike gear.

With POWER TRAIL, GORE BIKE WEAR® is presenting a completely newly designed line of innovative products and unique styles, and the autumn/winter collection 2015/16 with its wide range of features is precisely tailored to the challenges of bike tours in poor and cold weather.

Particularly in cold temperatures an outfit’s breathability is crucial to a mountain biker’s performance and wellbeing. For POWER TRAIL the product developers thus focused on optimum climate control that cyclists can regulate themselves. The key to this line’s success is the precise use of GORE-TEX® and WINDSTOPPER® materials. In this line GORE BIKE WEAR® uses these materials to set new standards and guarantee protection against rain and wind. Strategically integrated ventilation zips furthermore allow individual temperature Particularly in cold temperatures an outfit’s breathability is crucial to a mountain biker’s performance and wellbeing.

Strategically integrated ventilation zips furthermore allow individual temperature. The products in the POWER TRAIL line are vital for anyone seeking unrivalled mountain-biking pleasure throughout the year. This enjoyment ensured by the tried and tested skin-to-shell and head-to-toe philosophy, which is also reflected in the way the POWER TRAIL outfit systems are made up. The POWER TRAIL GT AS Jacket, for example, allows comfortable cycling in all weathers, as the extremely breathable GORE-TEX® Active Technology ensures you stay dry. The jacket hood is designed in such a way that it does not catch headwinds. Together with the multifunctional POWER GT AS Shorts, the outfit ensures absolute weatherproofing and the perfect feel. For greater comfort you can wear the INNER Tights Pro+ and the warming POWER TRAIL Thermo Jersey underneath. The outfit is completed by UNIVERSAL GT Gloves, UNIVERSAL SO Knee Warmers and UNIVERSAL GORE-TEX® Socks.

If you still seek fun on the trail despite low temperatures, POWER TRAIL is just the thing. The POWER TRAIL WS SO Jacket’s WINDSTOPPER® Soft Shell Technology doesn’t give wind and moisture a chance, yet is fully breathable. With the POWER TRAIL WS SO 2in1 Pants, GORE BIKE WEAR® also offers an innovative masterpiece of legwear: stylish shorts on top, allowing air to circulate, and warming tights underneath. Together, the warming POWER TRAIL Thermo Jersey long and the INNER 2.0 Tights+ offer unique comfort. The perfect complement to these garments is high-quality accessories such as ALP-X Socks, the ALP-X Beany and POWER TRAIL WS Light Gloves, which offer maximum control, response and safety, and feature smartphone-friendly pads on the fingertips.

For mountain-bike tours on really cold days the outfit can be extended by adding the POWER TRAIL WS SO Thermo Jacket, whose extremely breathable WINDSTOPPER® Soft Shell provides protection against all weathers and keeps you warm. The soft fleece lining and an intelligent ventilation system ensure a pleasant temperature at all times.

Come drizzle, frosty ground or icy winds, for keen mountain bikers there is no such thing as bad weather, even in the cold season – just inappropriate equipment. With the new POWER TRAIL line GORE BIKE WEAR® offers cyclists the requisite gear for the scaling of new peaks and the mastering of exceptional trails.
