“This season we delivered GORE-TEX® gloves to our North American and Southern Hemisphere customers for the first time, and we’ve seen explosive growth,” explained POW Sales Director Maxx von Marbod. “We’re now ready to take the technology global; our distributors are hungry for the same quality and performance.” Graeme Fuller of Surf Sales – POW’s UK distributor – commented, “It is very good news that POW will feature the GORE-TEX® brand worldwide as GORE is recognized by UK riders as the premium membrane technology. Combined with the excellent fit and function of POW, these new gloves will provide riders with the quality required for the conditions that we tend to face in Europe.”
POW Founder and CEO Dustin Goss commented, “The license extension is valued very highly within the walls of POW. Our team worked hard to plan, execute and deliver the implementation of GORE-TEX® brand technology into our latest offering, a technology that has become the leader in high performance durable waterproof technologies. Side-by-side with POW’s “Built to Last” mantra, these new GORE-TEX® gloves are the utmost in high-performance hand-wear.”
