Up on a tightrope: Breaking the world record with WINDSTOPPER® products

GORE BIKE WEAR® Countdown Jacket

Last Saturday, undaunted by fear of heights or death, Nik Wallenda crossed the greatest waterfalls of all, the Niagara Falls – walking more than half a kilometer on a five-centimeter tightrope. For twenty-five minutes millions of fans on site and in front of their television sets dared not take their eyes off him – clad as he was in a bright-red WINDSTOPPER® jacket set off vividly by the masses of water pouring down.  Equipped with this GORE BIKE WEAR® Countdown Jacket Wallenda easily defied cold sweat, spray foam and rain in his endeavor to break the record. WINDSTOPPER® products offer total windproofness and maximum breathability, setting new standards and taking an athlete’s performance to a whole new level. Nik Wallenda is only one of those champion athletes.
