The weekend again 26 outdoor bloggers from all over Europe at Gore in Feldkirchen gathered, where the new Gore-Tex Pro membrane was presented and tested. Unfortunately I could not take part this year in the Gore-Tex blogger Summit (#gtbs13), so there is here, just the press release for the new Gore-Tex Pro product technology with all new features.
Innovative technologies for maximum protection and best comfort: Gore expands his successful Gore-Tex® product range with a new Gore-Tex Pro generation. The products designed for freeride enthusiasts, mountain sports professionals and ambitious outdoor show is now more robust and more breathable and open as a new dimension in the professional Hardshell clothing. The reason: A completely new, patent pending membranetechnology.
To develop the new generation of clothing with GORE TEX Pro product technology, the previous system of clothing was revolutionized consisting of membrane and fabric selection by the GORE-TEX product developers. Heart is the new Gore-Tex Pro membrane. They consists of a newly developed multilayer membrane system with different, completely ePTFE-based micro-structures and is firmly connected to the upper as well as a specially developed lining.
The high performance and durability of the new Gore-Tex Pro clothing make demanding criteria for the upper (Denier value > 40) and ensure strict specifications for clothing design. In combination with the patented Gore-Tex Micro Grid Backer technology, the wear and tear of indoor and Fadenziehern prevents, is the new generation of Gore-Tex Pro 3-layer laminates as the so far most robust and most rugged Gore-Tex product on the market.
Compared to its predecessors, the new Gore-Tex is, as extensive laboratory and field tests have shown, Pro generation up to 28% breathable and ensures greater comfort through improved removal of welding. And that, without this compromising the usual durable water – and wind resistance of the previous generation of Gore-Tex Pro products.
