7mesh Industries to partner with W. L. Gore & Associates for debut collection
Innovative cycling apparel to incorporate four key Gore technologies
With over 80 years of experience in the technical apparel industry, no one understands better than the 7mesh Industries team that the best performing garments start with the best performing materials. That’s why 7mesh is pleased to announce that it has partnered with W. L. Gore & Associates to offer a wide range of GORE-TEX® and WINDSTOPPER® product technologies in its Spring 2015 line.
7mesh joins the select number of specialist manufacturers licensed to use Gore’s technologies in cycling. Every GORE-TEX® garment is tested to rigorous standards, so a close working relationship between the two companies was integral in developing the 7mesh launch collection.
The 7mesh Spring 2015 collection uses four different Gore technologies including the cycling outerwear debut of GORE-TEX® Pro product, Gore’s most rugged material intended for extended use. The Revolution jackets for men & women are engineered with cycling-specific fit and features that enable high-output road and mountain riding in the widest variety of conditions. 7mesh will also be using GORE-TEX® Active, WINDSTOPPER® Active and WINDSTOPPER® Soft Shell materials in their collection.
“Our goal is to become the most respected softgoods company in the cycling industry,” said Tyler Jordan, President of 7mesh. “Gore is the acknowledged leader in waterproof, water resistant, and breathable fabrics and we’re thrilled to partner with them for our launch.”
“It’s almost unheard of for us to license startup companies to use Gore materials,” said Matthias Zaggl of Gore. “The 7mesh team brings fresh insight into cycling apparel. Their deep understanding of our technologies and track record of excellence and innovation make our partnership a natural choice.”
The complete Spring 2015 7mesh line will be launched at Eurobike and Interbike. For more information on 7mesh, visit http://7meshinc.com/ and join their passionate cycling community on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
