"We are pleased that Black Diamond has selected Gore to be the central component of their new fall 2014 technical outerwear collection," said Tom Boyle, strategic marketing at Gore. "Gore's scientific and rigorous product development aligns perfectly with Black Diamond's. It's exciting to work with a company that continually aims to bring the most advanced technologies and fabrics to market, which provide the ultimate in performance and style."
The Black Diamond apparel collection utilizing Gore's technology is expected to be the cornerstone of the fall 2014 line, with distinct technical outerwear features, including the debut of a new embedded, concealed technology called Cohaesive. Cohaesive is a patent-pending cord management system from Cohaesive Garment Technology that embeds and bonds 3D hardware components directly into the garment's fabric. With the Cohaesive hardware right on the fabric surface, the athlete gains intuitive ease-of-use, even while wearing gloves in adverse conditions. This technology will be available in all Black Diamond jackets featuring GORE-TEX fabric.
Tim Bantle, director of apparel at Black Diamond Equipment, commented: "Black Diamond's athlete-employees live by the Company ethos: Use. Design. Engineer. Build. Repeat. We are dedicated to relentless innovation and integrity, designing and engineering equipment that pushes limits and challenges conventions for our global community of users. Our partnership with Gore manifests this philosophy and will empower our customers."
The fall 2014 Black Diamond apparel line for men and women includes collection-defining pieces featuring Gore technology. The front point shell, bibs and pants feature three-layer GORE-TEX Pro fabric engineered with added durability to withstand abrasion, while protecting against long-lasting extreme and variable weather. GORE-TEX Active products in the minimalist Sharp End series is the ideal solution for highly aerobic, done-in-a-day alpine activities, even in bad weather.
Black Diamond is also introducing a combination of taped-seam construction in garments featuring both Gore WINDSTOPPER Active and WINDSTOPPER Soft Shell materials. With their taped seams, the Convergent Down Hoody and Shell, which features WINDSTOPPER Active fabric, and the Induction Shell and Pants, which features WINDSTOPPER Soft Shell fabric, creates a new standard in breathability and weather resistance.
