Different soft shells
GORE® WINDSTOPPER® Soft Shell
The GORE® WINDSTOPPER® membrane makes this fabric completely windproof and highly breathable, combining the comfort of an insulating, stretchable mid layer with the weather protection of a fabric shell. GORE® WINDSTOPPER® soft shells keep athletes comfortably warm and dry, while allowing the required freedom of movement for top performance in most weather conditions.
SOFtech™ combines the second and third layers of clothing to provide effective protection in a whole range of weather conditions. The wear-resistant materials have excellent stretch and good breathing properties, ensuring an optimal body temperature. Two different types of SOFtech™ fabrics are available: for the protection models, the focus is on protection from wind and weather, while for the comfort models the emphasis is on breathability.
schoeller®-WB-400 - the All-in-One-soft-shell
schoeller®-WB-400 combines three materials in one: made from elastic fibres, the outer surface guarantees freedom of movement and repels dirt. The functional middle layer transports perspiration outwards, while repelling water from outside. The fleecy underside ensures comfortable heat regulation.
schoeller®-dryskin – the performance-enhancing Soft-Shell
Specially designed for action sports, the double-fabric designs consist of synthetic material on the outside and functional fibres on the inside for rapid wicking. Helping to support physical performance in sport.

NanoSphere® - naturally self-cleaning
NanoSphere®, the nanotech-based finishing technology allows dirt and water to simply run off the surface of the textiles. This mimics the natural self-cleaning effect of certain plants whose leaves always remain clean, because dirt simply cannot adhere to the finely structured surface, and is easily washed off when it rains.
The natural non-stick and cleaning process, also known as the self-cleaning effect, is transferred to the surface of textiles by means of nano technology. Compared to traditional textile impregnation processes, NanoSphere® achieves significantly better results with regards to:
- Water and dirt repelling properties
- Oil repelling properties
- Washing permanence
The protective function of NanoSphere® is still retained after frequent use and numerous washing cycles and has no effect on clothing comfort, look, feel, breath ability or elasticity.
Water or such substances as ketchup, honey, coffee or red wine run off. And if they don't happen to run off of their own accord, they can easily be rinsed off with a little water. Cleaning or washing the textiles is significantly easier. The textiles require less frequent washing and are washed at lower temperatures.
