Gore launches C5 Gore-Tex Shakedry 1985 jacket

Gore has launched the Gore C5 1985 Gore-Tex Shakedry insulated jacket.

The jacket combines the Gore-Tex Shakedry product technology with Polartec Alpha, a polyester knit featuring low-density fibres that "allows sweat to move freely to the outside".

Product manager Jürgen Erd said: “We chose this versatile insulation material because it is unbelievably light and dries incredibly quickly.

“Also, when it’s paired with Gore-Tex Shakedry, its high level of breathability really comes into its own.”

Olympic gold medallist and Gore ambassador Fabian Cancellara said: “This jacket is the perfect enhancement to the Gore-Tex Shakedry technology.

“Even on winter rides, it keeps me dry and well protected.”

Other details include an adjustable collar with Velcro, a back zipped pocket, sleeves featuring elastic cuffs and partially elastic hems, plus reflective logos and prints.
