XENON Jacke / Race bike jacket


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The GORE BIKE WEARTM XENON Jacket is designed to offer weather specific protection and ideal comfort to the race-biker. This is achieved by the lightest WINDSTOPPER® shell laminate (Helium 80), which reduces the jacket's weight to 194 g (in size L). The material is absolute windproof, durable water-repellent, highly breathable as well as tear- and abrasion-resistant. The usage of lightweight garment accessories allows the jacket to fit into the separate stuff pocket which can easily be stowed in every jersey back-pocket. Additional comfort is provided by the ergonomic cut e.g. curved back and pre-shaped elbows for tight fit and race-bikers aerodynamic posture and the extremely long shirttail as splash guard. Reflectors are placed all around the jacket for 360° visibility and a maximum of security on the road.
