    INTO THE ELEMENTS serves as GORE RUNNING WEAR®’s new heart of the brand. Living by this belief the new theme for all long-distance runners in Spring/Summer 2016 is: get out of your comfort zone! The new FUSION line offers the perfect apparel for goal-oriented long distance runners, who are prepared to hit the trails or the roads and push themselves, no matter the weather.

     

     

    Whether lashing rain, merciless sun, or cruel winds – the FUSION collection’s lightweight, high-tech functional fabrics will keep the elements at bay and ensure optimal performance over longer distances under all conditions. This is why the Norwegian ultra trail runner Sondre Amdahl chose GORE RUNNING WEAR® apparel at the start of this year. During his daily training runs, in preparation for some of the world’s toughest ultra races, he exposes the gear to extreme testing on a regular basis. The exceptional endurance athlete recently completed the Transgrancanaria, an Ultra-Trail® World Tour series race over 127 kilometers with more than 8,500 meters of ascent and descent. In spite of the extreme weather conditions that made this year’s race particulary tough, Sondre Amdahl came in fourth place, temporarily placing him first in the ultra trail world ranking.

    Sondre Amdahl’s gear of choice

     


    On cooler, or stormy days, Sondre Amdahl wears the FUSION WS SO ZO Shirt, which was designed exactly for these types of conditions. This breathable WINDSTOPPER® Soft Shell jacket provides the runner with effective protection against wind and prevents any windchill effect. As soon as temperatures start to rise, the detachable sleeves are quickly and easyly removed and can be stored in the back pockets.

     

    The FUSION WS AS Jacket is the go-to jacket in adverse conditions. Its new, fully taped seams don’t give the wind a chance. This extremely breathable Active Shell with WINDSTOPPER® membrane is so lightweight and ergonomic that it provides marathon and ultra runners with full freedom of movement and maximum comfort. The close-fitting hood protects the head from strong gusts and rain. Reflecting inserts and color blocking on the sleeves and chest, give the jacket that certain something, and ensure the runner’s safety.

     

    GORE RUNNING WEAR®’s FUSION 2in1 Shorts combine a casual look with the comfort of close-fitting running tights. The breathable, super-lightweight fabric with partial mesh inserts makes for optimal heat and mosisture management over long distances, while flat-lock seams and three separate pockets provide top comfort and sufficient storage. The soft FUSION Visor keeps sweat away from the face, protects against bright sunlight and contains elastic loops to secure sunglasses. Playful detail: hidden under the visor is the phrase “It’s only a hill, get over it” intending to motivate the athlete to push his boundaries, and to not give up.

     

    For long-distance runs on hot, dry summer days the ultra-light FUSION Zip Shirt ensures optimal performance. The shirt’s highly functional fabric guarantees maximum breathability and transport moisture the rapid transport of moisture to the surface, while its special ultrasonic seams prevent skin irritation – even when running with a backpack. The zipper on the collar allows additional ventilation, while the neon details and reflecting logo prints perfectly round off the shirt’s design.

    The FUSION Shirt long, FUSION Shirt, FUSION Tank Top and FUSION WS AS Pants, short FUSION Tights mid, FUSION Split Shorts and FUSION WS Gloves come in a range of contemporary colorways and complete the new GORE RUNNING WEAR® FUSION line. The collection is designed not just for training runs and competitions, but also to support runners in pushing their personal limits and defying the elements.

    Cooperations between GORE RUNNING WEAR® and top athletes, such as Sondre Amdahl,represent an important component for the development and progression of the new collection. GORE RUNNING WEAR® believes that every runner should be able to go out and live their passion every single day of the year. This is why the brand creates high-tech gear that makes it possible to run in all conditions - straight INTO THE ELEMENTS.
