The North Face Flight Vectiv

The North Face Flight Vectiv in Sharp Green/Tea Green brings carbon fibre plates to the trail market for the first time, and its not just a gimmick, with proven reduced tibial impact on downhills and high levels of propulsion this is a shoe breaking records in ultra-distance trail races.
Built for speed over huge distances off road The North Face Flight Vectiv provides propulsion with every stride, while reducing impact by 10% The Vectiv range uses a system of different technologies to give stability and shock absorption, without compromising on energy return.

A rocker shaped midsole optimises both foot-strike, and forward motion, while the 3D Carbon Fibre plate creates a ‘fixed rocker’ which also provides high levels of propulsion and stability.

The midsole uses dual density foams to provide the perfect combination of shock absorption, and energy return, while the outsole provides superior traction over any surface with a 3.5mm SurfaceCtrl outsole.

The seamless knit upper provides a high degree of breathability and uses PU yarns for improved support.

A Matryk midfoot area improves the lockdown feel for a secure ride and is a lightweight, and quick draining fabric. Improved durability comes from using reinforced toe caps, but also from the materials chosen, with Kevlar, polyamide and Matryx all offering superior longevity.

Carbon Plate

Carbon plates have well-researched benefits and a seemingly endless list of race wins and world records.

They create the firmer feel that fast racers are looking for and help to guide the foot through your stride, providing a touch of extra support. They can also help create a rocker feel, with the stiffness allowing the shoe to pivot – as the toe goes down, the heel must come up, easing you into your next stride.

Although stiff, they do flex, providing an energised pop of forward momentum as the plate fights to retain its shape.

Each brand, and almost every shoe, uses a plate differently. Different shapes, thicknesses, and designs are used to prioritise a different aspect of performance. Some aim exclusively to guide the stride, while others focus solely on propulsion.
