An Inconvenient Suit

GoreWear teams with former VP Al Gore

to lock box Climate Change

New Inconvenient Suit aims to raise awareness and performance.

Nashville, TN– In a groundbreaking collaboration that's leaving both environmentalists and cyclists breathless, former Vice President Al Gore has teamed up with GoreWear to launch a new line of waterproof cycling kits. The eco-friendly apparel line, dubbed "An Inconvenient Suit," promises to keep riders dry while simultaneously raising awareness about climate change.

"I've always said that the solution to global warming is just a bike ride away," Gore quipped at the launch event. "I firmly believe you can pedal your way to a greener future without worrying about pit stains."

The kits feature innovative moisture-wicking technology that converts sweat into clean drinking water, a built-in carbon offset calculator, and, of course, Gore-Tex’s industry-leading water and denial repellent membrane.

"We're excited to bring Mr. Gore's vision of a sweat-free, guilt-free cycling experience to the masses," said GoreWear CEO, W.L. Gore. "It's like wearing a tiny ozone layer. Without, of course, the actual ozone. The regulatory implications of that would be crazy.”

Some retailers expressed cautious optimism about the project. However, not all retailers are convinced of the collaboration's potential. Dave Sprocket, owner of the "Wheel Deal" bike shop in Portland, OR, voiced his concerns: "Look, I appreciate the effort, but Al Gore hasn't been relevant since flip phones were cool. Most of our customers probably think he had something to do with inventing the Internet, not Gore-Tex. If we’re being honest, the only thing Al Gore has in common with Gore-Tex is that they're both associated with hot air."

Despite the mixed reactions, industry insiders remain cautiously optimistic about the "An Inconvenient Suit" line. As climate change concerns continue to rise alongside cycling's popularity, the collaboration may yet prove to be a perfect storm of nostalgia and eco-consciousness. "Sure, Gore might not be the hippest name out there," noted cycling trend analyst Dana McWheely, "but in an era where everything old is new again, and sustainability is key, this could be the dark horse of cycling fashion. Plus, if it gets more people talking about climate change while they're huffing and puffing up hills, that's a win-win. Who knows?"
