GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ TECHNOLOGY
Active sportswear technology engineered to minimize friction and maximize speed. Revolutionary construction that makes the water bead up and rolls right off the surface.
- 100% waterproof.
- Advanced windproof protection blocks all wind.
- Highly breathable. Enables the release of excess heat and moisture.
- Extremely durable and long-lasting.
The revolutionary design eliminates the face fabric, making the GORE-TEX membrane the outer surface. Famously hydrophobic – or ‘water-hating’ – the innovative membrane delivers consistent protection. Since the face fabric was eliminated the weight is also reduced, GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ fabric weighs only 64gr/m2. By comparison, a regular paper used in a laser printer weighs 80gr/m2 - This makes garments in GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ fabric the lightest and most packable in our waterproof range.
Whether you're playing in a rainstorm or in a light drizzle, GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ garments will help you push for your new personal best.
GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ PRODUCT TECHNOLOGY
The GORE-TEX membrane contains over 1,4 billion microscopic pores per square centimetre. These pores are 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, but 700 times larger than a water vapour molecule. This makes the GORE-TEX membrane completely waterproof from the outside, while allowing moisture to escape from the inside.
All the different GORE-TEX fabrics are durably waterproof. They must pass an extensive wash/wear test cycle without degradation of their superior properties before being approved for production with the GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY™ promise.
This makes garments in GORE-TEX fabric extremely long-lasting, and therefore an excellent sustainable choice.
GORE-TEX SEAM SEALING
All GORE-TEX garments are fully seam-sealed.
All GORE-TEX garments are fully seam-sealed. The seams are covered with a GORE-TEX tape on the inside of the membrane to make sure that the garments are 100% waterproof. The tape is attached with a special machine using hot air and a hi-tech adhesive. Depending on style, a jacket needs between 12-15 meters of GORE-TEX tape to seal all the seams.
