THE RIDGE GTX JACKET
HIGH PERFORMANCE, SERIOUSLY UNDERSTATED

The stealth Ridge GTX takes you on a journey from the outback to the city streets and back again. No change of outfit required.

seriouslyunderstated

Since fusion cooking is trending, we’ve taken this concept and applied a unique spin to it. We used this inspiration for our own little project to define a whole new product in terms of design and performance. The design of the Ridge GTX can be best described as ‘seriously understated.’ And that’s exactly what we were aiming for.

About this page

MINIMALISM IN ITS PUREST FORM

Minimalism in its purest form is exactly what we had in mind when we started the development process of the jacket that would become the Ridge GTX. What we wanted to achieve was a clean and streamlined esthetic but without having to sacrifice performance. You could probably best describe the Ridge GTX jacket as outdoor-meets-motorcycling-meets-high-end technology.

The end goal was to compose a garment with a look and feel that would enable the rider to seamlessly transition from a long-distance trip to walking the city streets without even having to blink.

NOT TO PLEASE THE CROWDS

Our ambitions weren’t to design a jacket that would appeal to the vast majority of traditional adventure touring riders out there. Though some might feel alienated with the end result, we say, to each his own. The Ridge GTX is something special.

We were motivated by the challenge of coming up with clever design solutions for the most apparent functional features you would normally find in high-spec adventure jackets, yet without being visible to the eye. We’ll leave it up to you to make that judgement call.

LET’S RUN YOU THROUGH THE NITTY GRITTY

The Ridge GTX jacket looks like – on the surface – a jacket with a reduced number functional features. But check out all the specifications and you’ll understand that this is a jacket engineered with the highest quality materials and is jam-packed with innovative solutions that will live up to the expectations of the most demanding adventure-tour riders on the planet.

Ridge GTX Jacket - Ventilation Chest

About this page

A BRAND NEW VENTILATION SYSTEM

To start off, we’d like to introduce you to the brand-new ventilation system that we incorporated into the Ridge GTX jacket. The large front zipper is not just a zipper. It’s the YKK AQUASEAL® zipper that was initially developed to provide 100% waterproofing in diving suits.

When closed, it obviously is 100% waterproof, but when opened, it reveals a 3D mesh panel that will allow tons of air to flow into the jacket. More airflow comes in through the venting zippers at the upper arms and hot air can escape through the venting zippers at the back.

EXTREME WATERPROOFING AND BREATHABILITY

About this page

At this level, you expect nothing but the best, and the best is still provided by GORE-TEX®. In this case, we’ve used a 400D 3L GORE-TEX® laminated outer shell fabric because it provides the highest level of waterproofing and breathability on the planet. Period. When making use of a laminated outer shell, we’re reducing the number of layers you’d normally find in high-performance jackets and trousers.

This has a big effect on breathability as there are less layers that hot air has to pass before it can escape. At the same time, a laminated outer shell does not soak water as much as a traditional outer shell construction, which also implies that the jacket always stays lightweight and dries quickly.

THE REMOVABLE STORM COLLAR

Another new smart feature - which is also incorporated in the new Poseidon 2 GTX jacket - is the storm collar. It too is constructed of a 400D 3L GORE-TEX® fabric and features the super-comfortable neoprene chin panel that prevents chafing the skin when getting wet.

The removable storm collar is connected to the collar by using a thin but robust 360-degree zipper. When not in use, you can store it in the stealth back pocket.

High Performance
Protection Inside

At this level of engineering, you wouldn’t expect and won’t get anything less than our top level SEEFLEX™ CE-level 2 impact protectors, which are located at the elbows and shoulders. On top of that, we also added a new (optional) protection feature which is the possibility to include the new SEESOFT™ CE-level 1 divided chest protectors, made of the same material as the (also optional) SEESOFT™ CE-level 2 insert back protector. In the trousers, we have standard included the ultra-thin and comfortable SEESMART™ CE-level 1 hip protectors.

SELECT YOUR OWNMID LAYER

The Ridge GTX jacket is part of our ‘modular’ range. That means that we provide the outer shell, and we leave it up to you to select the insulating mid layer that suits your riding conditions best. Some of you won’t be using a mid layer at all, others will want to wear the Ridge GTX jacket in combination with the warmest insulation layer available. 

Take your pick from our range of high-performance mid layers or check out some of our favorites below.

mix &Match

The Ridge GTX jacket can be connected to your favorite pair of riding jeans in two ways. The safest way is to use the 360-degree long connection zipper. The quicker option is to make use of the short YKK connection zipper at the back. The latter option is feasible when you’re wearing the Ridge GTX jacket in combination with a pair of our jeans.

The ALTERNATIVES

Within our extensive range of GORE-TEX® products, we’ve got more models that could be an option for you. Why don’t you take a closer look at the Trench GTX jacket or the Poseidon 2 GTX? And if you’re looking for something that provides the benefits of a laminated outer shell, but that doesn’t come with the renowned price tag of most GORE-TEX® jackets and trousers, you should take a closer look at the Horizon 2 outfit, which is also available in a ladies-specific variant.
