Fully GORE-SEAM® taped GORE-TEX® 2L fabric breathes when setting steep bootpacks, yet provides total waterproofing when it's puking two inches per hour. Harnessing the function-first fit and backcountry utility of [ak], the Cyclic’s dialed details include ample venting, a systematic mapped lining, water-resistant zips, and a rider-driven articulated fit.
Enhanced with GORE-TEX®
The GORE-TEX® diamond represents a commitment to riding in any weather. To satisfy these riders, select men’s and women’s Burton styles have been enhanced with GORE-TEX® for the ultimate in Guaranteed To Keep You Dry® performance. Add Burton’s rider science and you get the ultimate in waterproof, breathable, windproof protection.
Fully Taped Seams
Every seam in the jacket and pant is taped to create the ultimate foul weather seal.
GORE-SEAM® Tape minimizes seam tape in critical zones, reducing the shell’s overall weight and bulk while increasing the breathable surface area.
Taffeta offers a crisp, high-end feel that is often woven using a mix of synthetic fibers. Its unique hand feel and sheen make it ideal for printing and embossing, and like all Burton linings it wicks and breathes easy to keep you dry from the inside out. Options made using recycled materials available within the GMP collection of eco-minded outerwear.
100% polyester mesh linings are key in a 2-layer jacket’s ability to breathe and wick away heat-robbing moisture. It also protects the coating or lamination to ensure top-level waterproofing and breathability season after season.
Focused on providing an even more performance oriented, articulated fit for high-energy riding. With cutlines and patterning engineered to mimic the body’s natural flex while riding and hiking, the result is a higher degree of mobility that enhances the function-first design and style of [ak].
