Snow Biking with Gore Wear

Snow Biking with Gore Wear

I went snow biking with Gore Wear yesterday. And, while the conditions were not great for the first ride in the snow with my new fatbike, my gear certainly was. An unusual amount of powder followed by freezing rain has given the groomers lots to do. I ventured out to give it a go and cut the ride short. In 20-degree temperatures, I was as comfortable as wearing sweats around the cabin. Gore sent me the latest from their Infinium line. The line combines stretch, insulation, seam taping, and reflectivity.

Gore Wear Infinium includes jerseys, tights, and jackets.

The C5 Thermo Bib Tights feature DWR and Windstopper in the crotch area. The softshell jacket combines wind protection and light insulation. It’s also water-resistant, highly breathable, and reflective. 

To the point of, once I was finished riding through what felt like wet concrete and worked up a sweat, I did not have to change immediately afterward.

Finished the ride and rode up the driveway to the cabin.

I also had on the C5 Thermo gloves and booties. I wore a short sleeve base layer under a Windstopper long sleeve shirt. In worse conditions, I’ll add another thermal layer under the jacket.

Remember to mix and match Gore gear. They have liners, socks, and booties. What I’m wearing while fat biking this winter:

  • C5 GORE-TEX INFINIUM Thermo Jacket—fleece-lined WINDSTOPPER softshell fabric
  • C5 Thermo jersey GTX—An aero fit and thermal fabric in the main torso to protect and insulate your core, while a lighter fabric makes up the lower part of the sleeves and side panels. A functional cold-weather jersey with a clean, sophisticated look.
  • C5 Thermo Bib Tights+—For endurance rides in harsh conditions, these tights feature DWR and WINDSTOPPER fabric in the crotch area to shield from cold and road spray while insulating.
  • PHANTOM GORE-TEX INFINIUM—Highly versatile windproof softshell with zip-off sleeves, allowing you to transform your jacket into a jersey. A relaunch of a GORE best-selling jacket with the latest evolution of fabrics and new design lines for a more modern appearance. Perfect for rides with changeable temperatures.
