The consolidated partnership between TCX and WL GORE is further strengthened by the introduction – as a world-wide first in the motorcycling industry – of the GORE-TEX SURROUND® technology. Thanks to the recognised specialisation in the sector and its propensity to develop products that are increasingly at the cutting edge, TCX becomes the ideal partner for WL GORE in the definition of this revolutionary project.
We’re talking about CLIMA GORE-TEX SURROUND®, an unrivalled boot in the Touring sector. Indeed, the model is the first one in the world to incorporate GORE-TEX SURROUND® technology – so far only used in the production of outdoor or urban use footwear.
The main innovation concerns the structure of the sole. The latter is made with a rubber tread featuring a non-slip design, which is bonded to a special thermoplastic rubber midsole that stands out for the presence of a special ventilation grille capable of channelling all moisture and heat towards the holes on the sides. The exclusive sole construction works in combination with the breathable and wear-resistant CORDURA® upper, and with the GORE-TEX Extended Comfort membrane for guaranteed all-round climate comfort. Feet stay dry and comfortable from spring to autumn, as confirmed by specific tests conducted on the product in a climate range of between 5 and 35 degrees.
GORE-TEX SURROUND® TECHNOLOGY
ALL-ROUND DRY AND COMFORTABLE
GORE-TEX® footwear engineered with SURROUND® product technology offer 360 degree climate comfort. They are highly breathable all-around without compromising on durable waterproof protection. Your feet stay dry and comfortable even at warmer conditions. This unique sole construction features openings positioned at the side of the sole. Moisture and warmth are not only conducted via the upper of the boot, but also downwards through the GORE-TEX® laminate into a ventilation grid. From there they can escape through large side sole openings.
