Since launching their pioneering “GIRO” Jacket in 1985, Gore Bike Wear has grown into an innovative manufacturer of cycling apparel.
The GIRO cycling jacket was the first of its kind to offer waterproof and windproof GORE-TEX features, whilst offering the rider functional breathability. The lengthened back was a new feature at the time, one which has since become an industry standard.
Having a wealth of experience in both the running and cycling fields, Gore apparel has been somewhat quiet on the women’s mountain bike front, having predominantly stuck with Lycra based fabrics, and skin tight fits.
However, we’re beginning to see a change with Gore’s new trail wear for women, so we decided to take it out for a ride.
