We give our verdict on the Gore neon gear range.

Gore Bike Wear Neon Gear Gore Bike Wear neon gear

Gore make some of our favourite riding gear and the big news for 2013 is that most of their popular performance pieces now come in super-safe high-visibility neon yellow.

With a few exceptions high-visibility clothing has always meant low performance, cheap fabric, baggy cut commuter clobber or industrial-type outfits. Now, no less than eight Gore Bike Wear tops, including the £79.99 Power Thermo jersey up to the superb £189.99 Xenon 2.0 Windstopper (as well as five different gloves, arm warmers, knee warmers plus Windstopper and Gore-Tex overshoes) are as retina grabbing as a road mender. We’ve already been saved from at least a couple of “sorry mate I didn’t see you” accidents in the week we’ve been wearing them. This winter looks like the first where we will be comfortable and visible.

State-of-the-art weatherproof performance, with stay safe visibility.

Performance 5/5
Value 4/5
Overall 4/5
