Performance by design

Our goal is and always will be to eliminate every distraction possible so that you can focus on your ride, no matter whenever or wherever it may be.

It's all about protection.

When it comes to protection our Outfit Systems are engineered with one concept in mind; your level of engagement. It all comes down to which type of rider you are: man, woman, trail, urban or high performance activities.

First Layer

Moisture Management

Provides initial heat loss regulation for the body and promotes the transport of moisture from your skin.

Mid Layer

Thermo Regulation

Thermo regulation layer used to trap air, keeping you warm in the cold weather conditions and cool when it’s hot.

Outer Layer

Weather Protection

Breathable fabric protecting your first and mid layers and the microclimate from rain, snow and wind.

Accessories

Head-to-Toe Protection

Head-To-Toe is all about protecting the parts of your body mostly submitted to heat loss, sweat protection and dramatic temperature variations. In other words, your head, hands and feet.

Head

As a critical body region, heat loss and sweat production from the head will vary significantly depending on the environment and activity level.

Hands

Skin temperatures vary the greatest in your hands and feet, where body functions will manipulate warm blood flow to he extremities to increase or decrease heat loss. Clothing systems that best complement natural body thermal regulation help reduce hands discomfort.

Designing Innovation - Our Philosophy

We at GORE BIKE WEAR® believe that innovation begins with asking questions. What unique problems do cyclists have today and how do we solve them?

When developing new concepts we ask ourselves one question: does this product make life easier for a cyclist? If there is no clear answer we go back to the drawing board. It may sound harsh but that’s just the first of many tests we perform on the long road from idea to finished product.

We believe that extensive testing, both on the field and in our own prototype lab is the only way to create apparel that live up to the GORE BIKE WEAR® brand. Of course this leads to a lot of failures during development but we find that we actually learn more from failure than success. It’s hard work but innovation never comes easy.

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.

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 are in constant dialogue with athletes. They give us the practical reality of cycling and help us identify the real world problems they face. Our material experts, engineers and designers then come up with unique technical and functional solutions to those problems. The result is apparel with outstanding quality and functionality. It’s easy to tell the difference.

We’ve spent 30 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.

Testing, re-testing and doing it
again until perfection.

To always deliver the best possible product and ensure top performance our quality management process is unique within our industry. From the very first research-baby-steps to the design and manufacturing process we test, re-test and test it some more again to always ensure you best-in-class products.

At every step in our manufacturing process we test and ensure that our products offer world-class performance. Superior performance is assured through constant innovation and the toughest standards. Every fabric and every factory is evaluated and is required to meet a set of stringent criteria.

For example, every style made with GORE-TEX® fabrics is manufactured in a certified factory and undergoes relentless lab tests created and even patented by Gore. You can be confident that every GORE BIKE WEAR® product will meet your needs for comfort and protection.

And while the lab is good, we also believe that there is nothing like testing our gear on real people in real-life situations. Our testers make sure your GORE BIKE WEAR® product is ready for rugged use and outdoor performance.

Our journey: innovation and performance.

A tribute to the wind, sun and rain. And to small details that make a big difference.

In 1985 W. L. Gore & Associates first brought dedicated cycling clothes to the still young market. The company's own employees recognised at an early stage cyclists' desire for functional cycle accessories and firmly believed that the development of waterproof, windproof and at the same time breathable cyclewear would be a promising venture.

Over the past years we have met many people, exchanged ideas with them and nurtured partnerships that have significantly shaped the development of the GORE BIKE WEAR® brand. Our work on visions and new solutions has always involved great passion and motivation, often resulting in products which were ahead of their time.

The innovative and functional GORE BIKE WEAR® products stand for the highest quality, maximum comfort and appealing design. New standards are always being set and top rankings in numerous tests, the many international awards for excellent designs and admission to the German Design Council confirm this. The success is also reflected by consumers. In 2014 the brand was for the twelfth time in succession voted best cyclewear brand by the readers of a renowned German MountainBIKE magazine.

GORE BIKE WEAR® is successfully sold in 24 European countries and since 2002 it has been available in the USA. In 2009 it entered the Canadian market and since 2010 our products have also been distributed in Asia. Strategically, GORE BIKE WEAR® is oriented towards product leadership and the development of innovative products with special customer benefits. The focus here is on meeting the requirements and needs of dedicated cyclists. Thus, above all, we invest in constructive partnerships and research & development. When we realize our ideas to their fullest potential we help cyclists push themselves to the next level. To reach new heights and enjoy the feeling of progress. To us, there is nothing better.
