Hiking & Trekking, Running, Ski & Snowboard, The North Face. What is FuseForm Technology?

FuseForm is a technology that was developed in the recent years by The North Face. Their objective? Design outdoor products as light as possible without compromising strength or durability. To do this, The North Face was not afraid to innovate and return to the very basis of textiles.

Unlike traditional technical outerwear, these specific products designed with FuseForm technology are devoid of as many seams and seam seals as possible. Instead, different fibres are interwoven in a particularly tight way, where more-durable and robust threads are interwoven with lighter, lower-density fibres in high-wear zones. This technique not only provides lightweight products with fewer seams but also promotes freedom of movement and a collection of robust products that feature a clean, contemporary look.

This season, there are more FuseForm products to choose from as the efficiency of the technology is becoming more recognized and appealing. This season, Altitude Sports invites you to discover 5 products with FuseForm technology.
