When not using GORE-TEX® or WINDSTOPPER® laminates we only select and place fabrics that perfectly match our high quality philosophy. Each of these fabrics is selected for its excellence in compression, moisture management, cooling and venting or fit. All put together for the best end user feel, fit and performance, and always related to the runner in motion. We have named these carefully hand selected textiles GORE® Selected fabrics.
Body temperature plays an important role in athletic performance. If the body cools down, the muscles do not receive a sufficient blood supply. As a result, accidents and deterioration in performance can occur. The materials used for temperature control are highly wicking on the inside, offer ideal insulation and are extremely soft to the touch. Rapid escape of perspiration prevents the body from cooling down due to evaporation and the fabric from sticking to the skin. In this way, you can keep your body warmer and drier.
The body gives its best performance at a temperature of around 37° C / 80° F. Microfiber is essential for balanced temperature management, as it keeps the temperature constant. Products made of microfiber are more breathable than the best natural fibres and have excellent thermoregulation qualities, which suit their final use perfectly. Microfiber’s high level of stretchability and rapid drying qualities guaranty garments with a perfect cut and excellent wearability. Microfiber is also very resilient, durable and easy to care for.
