Triumph and Gore-Tex: A Perfect Fit

The obsessive pursuit of perfection through passion and innovation has brought Triumph together with one of the world’s leading adventure clothing brands. An exclusive new partnership with GORE-TEX will offer riders a choice of jackets, jeans and gloves, all designed to perfectly complement the new Tiger 800 and 1200 bikes. It’s an “intuitive” and natural collaboration for two brands that hold quality, performance and innovation as their core values, says Miriam Moran, GORE-TEX Head of Fabrics Sales and Marketing.

“Innovation is in our DNA and we continuously create innovative products for consumers to experience more by partnering with brands like Triumph that have an innovative approach to design and performance,” she says.

Triumph is the only motorcycle brand licensed by GORE-TEX for a reason, adds Miriam: “It’s a premium UK brand with great heritage and industry credibility and has a unique and distinctive appeal as a lifestyle brand. This is another aspect why we are happy to partner Triumph to embrace that trend in the motorsports clothing arena.

“The crossover between sport clothing and fashion is becoming increasingly important and together we are working to embrace this new trend across different products.”

Just like the 200 new upgrades to the Tiger 800’s chassis and engine, GORE-TEX engineers never falter in their dedication to exploring new technologies to improve their products and, as a result, the ride.

The Triumph Adventure range includes:

Malvern jacket and jeans – a men’s three-layer strengthened GORE-TEX PRO fabric with full D3o Armour protection and removable shoulder, elbow and back protectors.

Brecon jacket and jeans – Men’s lightweight outer jacket with protectors and water repellent zipper pockets

Snowdon jacket and jeans – Ladies jacket with air vents for maximum flow through main body, sleeve adjustment for tailored fit and full D3o capability.

Peak gloves – Constructed with a GORE-TEX® z-liner membrane and featuring a super-soft long pile (faux) fur lining as well as integrated D3o knuckle protectors. To aid usability whilst riding, the index finger features conductive technology for use with smart phones and navigation systems.
