Gore blocks the wind with new Windstopper jersey and bib shorts

first_imgAdding to the new waterproof and windproof jackets based on the newest iterations of Gore’s industry leading Gore-Tex and Windstopper fabrics, they’ve also decided to step up their game in how the rest of their cycling range handles foul weather riding. As the latest to go up against the sector created single-handedly by the Gabba jersey, Gore brings their Windstopper fabric to a new short sleeve jersey that is designed to keep you warm in those transition seasons, before the arrival of fair weather riding and after the weather has started to go downhill again. At the same time, when the thought comes up of keeping you upper body warm there aren’t as many options in the shorts department. Gore has taken their penchant for blocking wind and solved the shorts issue as well with three new pairs of bibs that incorporate a new windproof chamois insert… The new Power Windstopper shortsleeve jersey takes the same lightweight, breathable, and highly water resistant softshell fabric that makes up the recently introduced Rescue jacket and cuts it into a standard jersey to suit a wide range of temperatures. Designed to protect whenever the weather is unpredictable, the jersey is intended to be worn next to the skin for all day comfort no matter how the conditions turn. The race-cut jersey includes slightly longer tight fitting arms and high collar to keep the elements out. It gets three standard rear pockets, a bit of a drop tail, and reflective accents throughout. The Power WS jersey is available in red, black, and black with high-vis yellow sleeves for $140.For spring and summer 2016, Gore is taking better care of men with the new Windstopper-like chamois pad insert. Available now in Xeon, Oxygen, and Power level bibs, the new seat insert adds a pre-curved shell up front to keep men’s dangly bits nice and protected from the elements. In essence it is just the typical chamois pad from each of the standard shorts, with the simple addition of a completely windproof insert at the front to protect the rider from the unpleasant cold winds that tend to hit on longer downhills in colder or unexpectedly changing weather conditions. Built on Gore’s premier wind cheating membrane tech, the insert provides exceptional breathability, taking moisture quickly away from the body for comfort even in warm, summer temperatures. Gore is so confident in the breathability of this new insert, and its superiority over conventional foam pads, that they are deploying it in all new padded bibs shorts and tights starting with this new spring & summer collection. The first to get the new wind-blocking pads are the Power and Oxygen shorts.The Power bib shorts with the windproof Power chamois will retail for $120, and feature a 25cm inseam, mesh bib back, and reflective detailing on the legs and but. The next step up Oxygen 2.0 bib shorts also get a windproof  chamois, this time at the appropriate Oxygen spec level. These $150 O2 bibs step up the detailing a bit with longer 28cm legs and flatter cuffs, flat straps designed not to dig into your shoulders, and again reflective logos details. Premier level Xeon bib shorts are also said to get the new tech, although we haven’t seen them just yet. All of the new spring/summer 2016 gear from shorts to jerseys and jackets is available now from your local Gore retailers, as well as direct from Gore through their own websites.GoreApparel.comlast_img read more
