The Collaboration Continues – GORE® Wear reveals ‘Cancellara Collection’

March 18, 2020 - by Client News

Providing the best of both worlds, the new Cancellara Collection unites GORE® Wear’s top technologies and products with the preferences and insight of its most valued brand ambassador. In time for Spring/Summer 2020 the two uniquely designed kits, inspired and influenced by Fabian Cancellara, are available to buy from March 18th 2020.

The limited collection comprises eight items; bib shorts, jerseys, a jacket, gloves and socks – with each available in either of GORE® Wear’s established C7 or C5 lines. The C7 collection is race specific, while the C5 collection features design modifications based on GORE® Wear’s best-selling road cycling products.


Fabian Cancellara, the former Olympic and World Champion, played a key role in the development and design of the premium cycling clothing collection. Just as he aimed to be the best during his professional racing career, Cancellara took the same approach in the creation of this kit combining GORE® Wear’s top technologies in the C7 collection in particular.

The central design element of the Cancellara kit is a “heptagon”, the idea originating from the number 7; the number of Spring Classics victories Fabian Cancellara won, his prologue victory on the Tour de France (7/7/2007) and the shape of a cobblestone a terrain in which he excelled on.

The new GORE® Wear Cancellara Collection provides both protection and comfort for cycling enthusiasts across the world. The Cancellara kit is designed around GORE® Wear’s most advanced technologies and collections.

Central Torso Architecture and WINDSTOPPER® Cup Technology. Fabian Cancellara’s unrivalled insight led to the revolutionary “Central Torso Architecture” of the bib shorts that ensure maximum comfort. Coupled with WINDSTOPPER® Cup Technology, the Cancellara bib shorts are highly breathable and pre-formed to prevent overheating at the height of summer and wind-chill in winter.

A woven 4-way stretch material in the bib shorts and race jersey ensure a compact seat and complete freedom of movement.

GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ TECHNOLOGY. Super light, ultra packable, highly breathable and durably waterproof. The absence of a face textile means that raindrops run right off the garment, eliminating the chill and discomfort of a wetted-out face fabric. The Cancellara kit uses this in combination with the stretch technology for complete freedom of movement in the racing position.
