Norda™️ has made high performance and sustainability its founding pillars. norda™️ firmly believes that these two goals are not only compatible, but essential to redefining the world of trail-running. Its commitment to these values is the key to its success, and it all starts with its use of innovative materials.
Material Innovation: Biosourced Dyneema® Fiber
When it comes to cutting-edge materials, biosourced Dyneema® fiber stands out as the strongest and lightest at monde™️. This revolutionary fiber is the foundation on which the norda™️ 001 upper rests. Why is this so important? Because every runner's performance depends on the quality of his or her shoe.
But norda™️'s commitment doesn't stop there. Biosourced Dyneema® fiber is also a sustainable choice, certified by BlueSign®, which means it meets the most stringent environmental and health standards. By using a mass balance approach, norda™️ ensures that its carbon footprint remains minimal. 75% of the energy used to manufacture Dyneema Fiber® comes from renewable energy sources, helping to save CO2 emissions equivalent to 13,000 vehicles. By choosing norda™️ 001, you choose performance without compromising our planet.
Ultimate Performance: The Vibram® Collaboration
In February 2020, norda™️ began an epic collaboration with Vibram®, the world-renowned sole manufacturer. Its goal was clear: to create the ultimate high-performance trail-running platform.
The result of this collaboration is its norda™️ x Vibram® formation sole, inspired by the Canadian Shield, one of the world's most rugged rock formations. norda™️ has incorporated the topography of the island of Montreal and its environs into its design, offering exceptional fore-aft and lateral grip. Vibram® Litebase® technology guarantees a 30% reduction in total sole weight, enabling norda™️ to run faster and longer. Vibram® Mega Grip® rubber ensures unrivalled durability and traction, whatever the conditions.
The midsole of the norda™️ 001 is designed with Vibram® SLE, offering exceptional cushioning and uncompromising durability. This shoe is truly designed for runners who push their limits.
