Ronhill collaborate with GORE-TEX™ to offer two windproof apparel products
WINDSTOPPER® by Gore-Tex Labs: The ultimate and only windproof protection you will be needing from now on.
Innovation has always been synonymous with our brand. Continuously looking for ways to enhance the running apparel world means collaborating and exploring new fabrics as well as asking the question of “how can we provide better for runners?”
After prolong research, we have collaborated with GORE-TEX™ to offer two windproof apparel products; our brand new Windstopper Jacket and Windstopper gloves, made with WINDSTOPPER® technology by Gore-Tex Labs.
For decades, millions of people have trusted the waterproof protection fromGORE-TEX™.
GORE® has invested and developed WINDSTOPPER™ as a high-performance technology which boosts performance when waterproof protection isn’t a priority. Their technology guarantees being totally windproof and reliably breathable, so you can continue with your training and stay protected from the wind chills.
How it works:
Most textiles are naturally open structures which allows the wind to penetrate, making our body shiver with cold. The construction of the WINDSTOPPER® technology developed by Gore-Tex Labs is they come from a laminate of selected textiles and an ultra-thin membrane.
By Gore’s standards, a fabric can only be considered truly windproof if its air permeability is 1.0 cfm (< 5 l/m2/s) or less. It’s a standard our products easily meet. The membrane technology in GORE-TEX WINDSTOPPER™ products has billions of pores that are 900 times larger than water vapor molecules, so even though wind can’t get in, moisture from sweat vapor can easily get out.
In addition to the membrane technology, a PFC-free DWR treatment is used. This way, any water touching the outer face textile will bead and roll off, making them water and snow resistant for an extra layer of harsh weather protection.
Lastly, our brand new Windstopper Jacket and Gloves boost an exclusive partnership with outdoor leading brand, Mountain Equipment, giving them the final nod in being the go to jacket for windy, cold, drier weather conditions.
