The latest GORE-TEX products offer motorsports enthusiasts more options than ever before.

Staying stylish, safe and protected from the elements has never been so easy.
W.L. Gore & Associates prides itself on staying one step ahead of the competition and strives to help its brand partners deliver the highest quality fit for purposes garments and accessories on the market place.

With the widest choice of membranes, fabrics and additional patented innovations Gore has the most complete weather resistant offering on the market place.  Its brand partners new additions for 2011 clearly demonstrate the versatility that Gore’s technologies offer.

Alpinestars’ Durban GORE-TEX jacket is designed for all weather adventure.  It has a removable Paclite® GORE-TEX membrane, which is the lightest, most packable shell that Gore makes – ideal when space and weight are critical.  The jacket also has CE certified armor and Superfabric® reinforced seams for increased rider protection.  This suit is optimised for use with the Durban GORE-TEX Trousers which offer the same 100% durably waterproof protection you get from this great looking jacket.

Rukka’s Romeo & Chrystal jackets are a great addition to their already successful GORE-TEX brand offering. The Romeo is one of 11 styles to feature the revolutionary waterproof LOCKOUT™ Closure and features a GORE-TEX Performance Shell membrane for ultimate weatherproof protection.  This jacket also has a detachable elastic collar made from a 3-layer GORE-TEX fabric.  The Chrystal is a beautifully fabricated GORE-TEX jacket for women.  The outer fabric is an mc-approved, abrasion resistant Cordura 500 and also uses the LOCKOUT™ Closure.  The jacket comes in white, black or cerise and is a great option for women looking for a combination of performance and style.

Developed for long-range touring and demanding motorcycle riders, the Gator Evo jacket from Dainese is all about comfort.  It has enhanced fit thanks to its completely elasticated construction which includes Cordura® Comfort stretch fabric, FK on the sleeves, leather on the shoulders.  Comfort is also ensured thanks to its GORE-TEX membrane.  Removable jointed composite protectors and pocket for the G-type back protector complete the technical features.

Brand new partners for 2011 are REV’IT! and Held.  These two great motorcycling brands have worked closely with Gore to create their weather proof garments.  The end results are fantastic.  The Held Tour Jacket (pictured) is one of the most striking designs in their collection and as well as benefiting from the GORE-TEX membrane also features COOLMAX to keep you feeling as cool as you look.  From REV’IT!, the Defender with its multitude of pockets is functional, stylish and offers an incredible level of rider and weather protection.

Another perfect example of the way in which Gore and its brand partners constantly strive to react to new trends in the industry and develop products that meet their requirements is the new Klim Adventure Spec GORE-TEX suit.  This suit was designed in a 3-way collaboration and the fabrics, technologies and design features used in the garments are radically advanced, placing them at the head of the adventure motorcycling apparel market.
