Gore Bike Wear developed its new POWER collection for the devoted year-round cyclist who prefers classic designs that are combined with both functionality and versatility. The Road Race GT AS Lady 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 Road Race GT AS Lady jacket employs the Gore-Tex Active Shell fabric for the paneling — 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 this was impossible for a waterproof hardshell. However, all of the variables are there to make the Road Race GT AS jacket an essential piece for high-energy output and 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 but it isn't 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 Road Race GT AS jacket, so there's only one zippered pocket on the lower back panel. The cuffs are adjustable, and there are attachment points for a hood. And because rainy conditions are often low-light conditions, the Road Race jacket has reflective front and back logos and additional reflective print on the sides and back.
The Gore Bike Wear Road Race GT AS Lady Jacket is available in six sizes from X-Small to XX-Large and in the colors Black, Rich Red, and Waterfall Blue.
