VECTIV Built For The Trail series offers a diverse running experience thanks to advanced technology and innovative features
Hong Kong, 3 August 2022 - Made to travel across mountains and trails to unleash your limitless potential, The North Face’s new fall/winter outdoor exploration products harness advanced technology to help hikers and trail runners embark on their adventures with ease and comfort. This season, The North Face draws inspiration from the adventurous rally car in creating the new VECTIV Built For The Trail series of innovative trail shoes featuring multi-directional stability, long-lasting forward propulsion, rugged grip and enhanced breathability. The new shoe series opens up a new and energetic chapter, allowing explorers to respond flexibly to ever-changing environmental conditions.
Run and watch my dust
As a high-intensity outdoor sport, trail running requires superior equipment and peak physical fitness due to the often complex terrain and changing climatic conditions. Just as a rally car gives drivers the motivation and confidence to move forward, a pair of good trail running shoes can be the most critical piece of equipment for a runner. The new VECTIV Built For The Trail series provides athletes with strong and stable protection to enable them to achieve their optimal performance.
The new FLIGHT VECTIV X ELVIRA trail shoes are equipped with 3D carbon fiber support plates, creating stability with a flexible rebound effect that can protect the feet and maximize their wearer’s stable pace.
All trail running shoes from the new series feature a dual-density midsole, which provides propulsion just as a turbo engine can effectively convert impact into power and reduce energy consumption. The SurfaceCTRL outsole provides a strong grip, similar to a rally-grade tire, while the Matryx splices and lightweight knitted mesh material create a "front cooling system" that ensures feet stay dry and comfortable while on the run. Apart from the FLIGHT VECTIV X ELVIRA trail shoes, a variety of new VECTIV trail shoes have also launched to meet the different needs of trail-running enthusiasts while creating a diverse outdoor experience.
Run free and explore
Taking inspiration from the beauty of nature, The North Face’s new fall/winter outdoor exploration products bring even more creativity to this season’s apparel. The new Flight Lightriser Futurelight Jacket (HKD 2,690) features a FUTURELIGHT 3L shell with a laminated design and DWR water-repellent treatment that is breathable and waterproof for explorers to cope with sudden weather changes. Comfortable bottoms are equally important, with the new creative Printed Flight Stridelight Short (HKD 690) that feature a unique reflective brand logo design.
The breathable Flight Race Day Vest 8 (HKD 1,590) comes with 360-degree reflectivity and a minimalist strap design that allows runners to access their water bottle with ease during long or short runs.
