The GORE® Wear R7 running collection
The best choice for long distances, trails and roads: the GORE® Wear R7 running collection
Although they are physically challenging, long distance runs hold a special appeal for a significant number of people. With things like motivation and weather being susceptible to change, it’s all about perseverance and staying the course. Not only do you need to be physically fit, you need to have immensely strong willpower.
The garments that are best to see you through all the ups and downs is the R7 running collection by GORE® Wear, which offers supremely functional products for the tough challenges confronting long-distance runners.
Whatever the weather the GORE® R7 range stands up to all the rigours.
An athletic-inspired new colour combination of yellow and teal, as well as the ambitious material and ingenious functionality – the R7 collection is eminently suitable for intense workouts and peak performances. GORE® athletes like Britain’s Jamie Ramsey, Yoann Stuck, Amanda Basham and Zac Marion ruthlessly tested these garments to make sure they’re fit for purpose. GORE® Wear’s new R7 running collection is extremely breathable and quick to dry, with its ultralight materials ensuring runners do not have to carry unnecessary weight, leaving them free to clock up the miles.
THE GORE® R7 PARTIAL GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ GILET
Exceptionally lightweight, ultra packable and highly functional: this is the gilet athletes have been looking for. State-of-the-art materials and a performance-inspired design allows the GORE® R7 PARTIAL GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ GILET to stand up to the rigours of changeable weather. GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ apparel equipped with GORE® WINDSTOPPER® technology is windproof, highly breathable and water repellent. An ingenious four-way stretch panel on the back of the gilet allows for complete freedom of movement while also delivering a high level of breathability. Ideally, for trail runners, the gilet can be worn over a small running backpack – making it perfect for quick changes on the trails. Other practical features are the full length zipper and the seamless shoulder construction to ensure a backpack sits comfortably. The GORE® R7 PARTIAL GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ GILET is available for men and women.
GORE® R7 2in1 SHORTS
The GORE® R7 2in1 SHORTS are lightweight, breathable and barely noticeable with their airy, lightweight feel.
The material mix is incredibly functional, breathable and quick to dry. Side slits give runners the freedom to move any way they want and a four-way stretch in the built-in briefs guarantee good support. The R7 2in1 Shorts are a top choice for all those longer runs and crucially have side pockets to store your belongings.
