Our partner The North Face has launched a new series for the winter: Steep. The line is made up of winter sports clothing for descents and many other uses. The collection comes with the latest technologies to equip wearers for the challenge of steep slopes. An example of these technologies is the especially constructed 3-layer Gore-Tex Pro material, making Steep products extremely wind- and waterproof, as well as breathable and robust. The winter sports clothing is insulated with several technologies which vary from product to product. Integrated into the different material layers and products is Primaloft Silver, Thermoball and down - these keep the body warm at all times.
Apart from the technologies, The North Face has also focused on many further features when designing the Steep series. These features have been adapted to suit the needs of skiers and snowboarders, which means that Steep clothing offers ventilation openings on the inside of the thighs and under the arms, waterproof mobile phone pockets, warm hand pockets, drawstrings that are fully adjustable for the perfect fit and a hood that can be worn comfortably under a helmet. You can tell straight away that The North Face has thought long and hard about what athletes want, and has also listened to their wants and needs.
To present the Steep series, The North Face has launched the Tsirku expedition. This is a three-part series starring freeride professionals Ralph Backstrom, Hadley Hammer and Sam Anthamatten on the Tsirku glacier. The Tsirku is the point where Alaska, British Columbia and the Yukon meet. The environment is made up of snow and steep slopes - a paradise for freeriders that not many have seen and even fewer have tried to ski in. This is the trailer for the series. Soon we will be able to show you the three episodes from The North Face Tsirku expedition.
