Design Philosophy

“Know, first, who you are; and then adorn yourself accordingly.” Although philosopher Epictetus would have to wait 1700 years to see a bike, he hit the nail on the head.

When you’re passionate about riding you need clothing that’s as dedicated and focused as you are. That’s the philosophy we share at GORE BIKE WEAR®. You focus on riding and we’ll focus on you.

It makes no difference whether you’re skimming over frozen mud in March or carving down a sunny mountain pass in July, you simply can’t get enough of being on your bike. As riders ourselves we know that feeling all too well (just ask our families.) This is why we go to great lengths to engineer GORE BIKE WEAR® products with outstanding temperature management and weather defense together with incredible fit and feel.

We’ve spent 25 years researching, developing, designing, testing and then re-testing with a dedication that scares normal people. The result is simple – clothing you can trust. Constructed using intelligent uses of GORE-TEX®, WINDSTOPPER® and GORE® Selected fabrics, our goal is to completely eliminate every distraction possible. If your body is comfortable and shielded then your mind is free to focus on what’s important. Enjoying the ride, no matter whenever or wherever it may be.
