Head-To-Toe and Skin-To-Shell layering protection with GORE BIKE WEAR® Outfit SystemsThe Gore Outfit System engineering derives from integrating two vital concepts; Head-To-Toe protection and Skin-To-Shell layering. Head-To-Toe is all about protecting the parts of your body mostly submitted to heat loss, sweat production and dramatic temperature variations. In other words, your head, hands and feet.
The second crucial part of our integrated system is Skin-To-Shell. Layering was first developed in mountaineering and military clothing where weather conditions can be unpredictable and safety and operational effectiveness are critical. Its purpose is to maintain a comfortable micro-climate that complements your body’s natural thermal regulation in varying activity levels and weather conditions.
Head-to-Toe | AccessoriesHead
As a critical body region, heat loss and sweat production from the head will vary significantly depending on the environment and activity level.
Skin temperatures vary the greatest in your hands and feet, where body functions will manipulate warm blood flow to the extremities to increase or decrease heat loss. Clothing systems that best complement natural body thermal regulation help reduce hands discomfort.

Skin-to-Shell | LayeringFirst Layer | Moisture Management
Provides initial heat loss regulation for the body and promotes the transport of moisture from your skin. Keeps you dry and therefore also comfortable.
Mid Layer | Thermo Regulation
The thermo regulation layer is used to trap air, keeping you warm. First and mid layers manage heat loss together with your natural thermal regulation and help your body control it’s temperature. Looser or thicker layers trap more air, providing greater insulation.
Outer Layer | Weather Protection
Breathable fabric protecting your under layers and micro climate from rain, snow and wind. Our Systems technology ensures optimal breathability, weather protection and ergonomic comfort to enhance your performance.
