Versatility, timeless designs, and the most advanced fabrics available define the new POWER collection from Gore Bike Wear. This line of clothing is for the devoted year-round cyclist who prefers minimal styling and maximum functionality. The Power GT AS Jacket sits at the top of this line, as it was constructed with Gore's renowned Gore-Tex Active technology in order to keep you dry and comfortable in the harshest of riding conditions.
The Gore Bike Wear Power GT AS jacket employs Gore-Tex's Active Shell fabric for the paneling, which is one of the most breathable in the Gore-Tex lineup. This material keeps you moving freely and sheltered from the worst downpours. So, let's give it the quick rundown. The jacket is light and packable, fully-waterproof, and of course, breathable. To an extent, you may have thought that this was impossible for a waterproof hardshell. However, all of the variables are there to make the Power GT AS jacket an essential piece for high-energy output, wet-weather riding.
And because of the jacket's composition, it's guaranteed to keep you dry. But it also breathes exceptionally well, and it allows you to move freely on the bike. Gore Bike Wear describes the fit as "slim," which means that it stays close to the body without being constricting. The elbows are pre-shaped so that they don't tug at the underarms when you reach for the handlebars.
Again, Gore Bike Wear took a minimalist approach when designing the Power GT AS jacket, so there's only one zippered pocket placed on the lower back panel. Within this pocket, there's a detachable storage bag (LOKSAK) for sealing off your electronic devices from the elements. The cuffs are adjustable, and there's a partially elasticized hem. And because rainy conditions are often low-light conditions, the Power GT AS Jacket has reflective front and back logos.
The Gore Bike Wear Power GT AS Jacket is available in five sizes from Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black/neon yellow, Red/black, and Splash Blue/black.
