Gore Bike Wear (United States) - Press Release: Cancellara collaboration - Best of both worlds.
Imagine one of the most successful riders in the history of cycling combined with our top technologies and products. Yes, you're right! It's a dream come true.
Two Kits. One Design Inspiration. World Class Performance:
Fabian Cancellara is an Olympic and World Champion and the perfect partner for this unique project. It's a celebration of what we can create when we collaborate with our athletes. Especially one with an unparalleled career like Fabian. The Cancellara kit is designed around our most advanced technologies and collections. Fabian played a key role in the development and design process of both the race-specific “C7” collection as well as the “C5” collection. The result: unquestioned performance for road cycling fans around the world.
Design - The magic number:
“7” is Cancellara’s favourite number. Throughout his career he picked up 7 Spring Classics victories and won the prologue of the Tour de France on 7.7. 2007. That’s why a „heptagon“ functions as central design element of the collection. Predominantly used as a discreet print element, it also features in small details like the jersey zippers. The “orbit blue” colour is truly stunning and Cancellara’s personal choice. It is repeated across the entire collection – also in the GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ stretch jacket.
Technology - Take it from the top:
"I was always the first person wanting to test and develop products further to get the most out of them.” Fabian Cancellara.
The Cancellara kit features GORE® Wear’s most advanced technologies: The GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ technology provides ultra packable, highly breathable and durably waterproof protection. Our seat inserts are developed for ultimate comfort and protection, so you might simply want to stay in the saddle forever. And the new Central Torso Architecture allows the body to move freely, while shorts and seat pad remain firmly in place to avoid chafing.
