If it's raining, you're training.
If that's your attitude, you need the best kit to keep you dry and comfortable on the bike, even when putting in big training miles and hard sessions in the rain. Gore-Tex ShakeDry technology meets that need.
Gore-Tex membrane itself is both waterproof (very) and breathable (also extremely). Previous garments have always bonded the membrane to a face fabric and liner to add durability and comfort. However, face fabrics can wet-out (when your jacket stops beading water and it seeps into the fabric) causing breathability to suffer, and it then feels like you're getting wet, when actually it's your sweat that can't escape. So ShakeDry gets rid of the face fabric completely, meaning rain immediately hit the Gore-Tex membrane and rolls off, with nothing for water to seep into. Simple.
This also creates an extremely lightweight jacket, and removing the face fabric also means the jacket can breathe even better. Plus, it doesn't require constant re-proofing as, again, there's no material to soak up water. A final benefit is that you'll stay warmer as your sweat can escape all day long, no matter how much it rains. An extremely lightweight lining adds a bit of comfort, especially if you're wearing short sleeves.
The ShakeDry 1985 is real top-drawer performance for the commited athlete who trains in every weather. If you need the best, look no further.
