Gore, creator of some of the most technical waterproof and windproof textiles on the market, has released a new range of women’s-specific mountain bike clothing.
The Power Trail Lady range consists of jackets, jerseys and shorts, and combines performance fabrics with a street-inspired style. And, as Gore is of course keen to emphasise, the range isn’t just a scaled down version of the Men’s Power Trail range – it’s been designed for women from the ground up.
BikeRadar spoke to Clemens Deilmann, Head of Design for Gore Bike Wear, to get the lowdown on why Gore has taken this different approach, and what’s different with this range of women’s mountain bike clothing.
“Understanding needs and problems of an athlete and solving them with the selection of the best available fabrics and the use of technical workmanships is a priority,” said Deilmann of Gore’s approach to kit design. “The additional challenge is to interprete contemporary design and favourable proportions to performance products.
“My principle is that we only do a great job at Gore when people feel comfortable and beautiful in our products – that combination counts especially for the women’s ranges,” Deilmann added.
