Gore has had the Element as part of its range for some time. For 2017, it’s updated the design to include new features. Chief among these is the replacement of the ¾ front zip with a full zipper with a full length backing strip to stop chilly winds getting in through it or it irritating your skin. There’s also a zip garage at the bottom to prevent the zipper scuffing your shorts.

It’s a fairly lightweight technical summer jersey with raglan sleeves and good airflow through the fabric. The cut is quite relaxed and designed for the recreational cyclist, giving a bit of extra room or the opportunity to size down, while the fabric is soft to the touch, comfortable to wear and slightly warmer than the lightest technical jerseys.
