WORKING WITH THE

BEST-OF-THE-BEST

When it comes to living up to the highest demands in terms of waterproofing and breathability, there’s only one company that actually guarantees to keep you dry no matter the weather:

W.L. GORE & Associates, aka GORE-TEX®.

We use GORE-TEX® in our premium products for a couple of good reasons. Let us walk you through how we do it and why we do it.

Breathable

The breathability of the GORE-TEX® technology will let your sweat evaporate properly through the fabric which prevents overheating and sweat build-up on your skin.

Windproof

Because GORE-TEX® materials are windproof, wind chill is severely reduced if not totally eliminated, that way you'll remain cozy inside your motorcycle gear.

Waterproof

Because of the GORE-TEX®

GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ promise, GTX products are 100% waterproof, keeping you dry and comfortable even when you’re riding in the worst weather conditions.

05 Lining

The GORE-TEX® membrane is the core of all our GTX products. It contains over 1.4 billion microscopic pores per square cm (9 billion per square inch). These pores are 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet yet 700 times larger than a water vapor molecule.

That’s essentially the reason why water can’t get in from the outside, but water vapor can get out from the inside.

LAMINATES

AND LINERS

The GORE-TEX® membrane can be applied using different construction techniques, all depending on the intended use of the garment and desired functional aspects

Lamination Explained

When you see the term “laminate” or “lamination", it refers to the way the membrane is applied to the outer shell; it is literally laminated or bonded to the outer fabric and protected by a carrier fabric against damage. All the stitching seams are made waterproof by seam-taping them.

There are three major benefits to this system. The first is that it offers the highest level of breath-ability. Next, it’s a lightweight and quick-drying outer shell because of less water pick-up and, the last, a layer that doesn’t saturate with rapidly cooling down water prevents the transfer of cold to the body.

 

 

We use two different GORE-TEX® laminates in our garments:

Liner Explained

We also have outfits with a removable GORE-TEX® liner, which serves as a separately wearable waterproof jacket. It’s found under the outer shell and is lightweight, extremely breathable, and easy to stow away when the sun is shining bright in the sky.

The advantage of the liner system is that the outer shell of the jacket or pants weigh less and offer a more flexible feel because of the lack of lamination. The disadvantage is that the outer shell will more easily pick water up in heavy rain, and it can take a while to dry in cold and wet weather.

2-Layer Laminate

The GORE-TEX® membrane here is only bonded to the outer fabric. Without a protective “backing fabric,” it’s more likely to damage the membrane so we always apply a protective liner on our garments.

3-Layer Laminate

This construction bonds the GORE-TEX® membrane between the outer fabric and the inner lining and it is protected by a “backing fabric". The backing fabric in itself is so strong that there’s no need to add an additional protective lining.

We not only use GORE-TEX® in our jackets and trousers, but also within an assortment of our gloves
