Some call it a runner’s high, we call it a dream state. A liberating flow that cuts through the noise and carries us to remote landscapes. Propelled by innovation and a trail running legacy, this season sees the latest release of the Summit Series trail run collection, introducing VECTIV™ 2.0 technology.

With over 165 podiums, 94 wins and counting, The North Face continue to push boundaries in trail running through the VECTIV Pro series. Summit VECTIV™ Pro 2 is a state-of-the-art revolution with era-defining innovations. This includes the debut of DREAM Midsole Technology. An innovative midsole that softens the demands of the trail with lightweight cushioning and higher rebound.

Summit VECTIV Pro 2 also utilises a carbon fibre plate for stability and propulsion, a new and improved upper mesh for breathability and comfort, and a SURFACE CTRL™ rubber outsole and rockered midsole geometry. It’s a true balancing act to feel more secure than ever with every foot strike.

Rapid rebound, dynamic stability, and unparalleled propulsion, the Summit VECTIV Pro 2 doesn’t just help you to embrace the trail, it powers you through. With countless hours of research and testing by the talented The North Face athletes, woven into every fibre. A true reflection of ATHLETE TESTED. EXPEDITION PROVEN™.

Head to toe looks are packed with technology for the those that want to be on the trail from dawn until dusk, push boundaries and reach new limits. The collection also includes the Summit Superior FUTURELIGHT Jacket, Summit Run Race Day Vest, and the introduction of the Trail Run Quarter Sock.
