From the middle of a storm cycle to springtime slush, the Burton AK GORE-TEX® Cyclic Jacket brings rugged performance that excels in any type of weather, making it a superb shell for riders who use and abuse their gear on a daily basis. Dialing in the backcountry utility of AK, the Cyclic’s dialed detailing includes rider-driven features such as ample venting, a systematic mapped lining and an articulated-fit.
GORE-TEX® - GORE-TEX® fabric is incredibly durable, waterproof, breathable, and totally windproof. A single square inch of this fabric contains 9 billion microscopic pores—each 20,000 times smaller than a raindrop, but 700 times larger than a molecule of water vapor. Water can’t pass through the fabric, yet perspiration escapes with ease. You’ll find this next level molecular construction on all GORE-TEX fabrics.
Fully Taped - Having outerwear with fully taped seams means that on the inside of the jacket all the seams are covered in tape to provide the most effective waterproofing. It can be considered a key feature if you live in a wet climate or are planning on wearing the jacket during heavy rains. The downside is that due to the full taping there is less breathability than you'd experience with critically taped seams.
GORE-SEAM® Tape - This unique tape, backed by reliable Gore equipment and know-how, ensures that every seam and tiny stitch hole is sealed.
YKK® Water Resistant Zippers - YKK® matte water-resistant zippers for smoother performance and better drape, a cleaner finish, and overall higher strength.
StormForm Hood - The contoured shape fits perfectly over helmets and integrates seamlessly with goggles, while still allowing space for neck gaiters and balaclavas. Enhanced bio-mechanics move rotationally without creating frontside or backside blind spots.
