GORE BIKE WEAR® - a global phenomenon
Gore is one of the world’s best-known brands. Established in 1958 by Wilbert L. (“Bill”) and Genevieve (“Vieve”) Gore, W.L Gore innovated PTFE (more commonly known as Teflon), an extremely versatile material that was integral to the manufacturing of elements such as insulated wire and cable. It became a worldwide success, with its technologies used across the globe and beyond – even going as far as the moon. In 1969, Bill’s son, Bob, made the breakthrough discovery of ePTFE, or “expanded polytetrafluoroethylene” when he rapidly stretched PTFE. The result was an incredibly durable, porous, breathable, yet water resistant material, which later would be known as Gore-TEX® fabric.
While Gore-TEX has been used in a number of ways including insulation for wires and cables, gaskets and medical implants, it is probably best known for its use in protective yet breathable fabric. In 1976, Gore sold its first Gore-TEX® fabric, which was turned into windproof, waterproof and durable rain wear jackets. These GORE BIKE WEAR® jackets became top-selling items and synonymous with the Gore brand, enjoyed by hobby cyclists and professional athletes across the world. Gore also pioneered Windstopper laminate fabric products. The Windstopper fabric is similar to Gore-TEX but the difference is that while it is windproof and breathable, it is not waterproof.
