First released in 1991, Steep Tech was one of the first athlete-designed collections from The North Face. Scot Schmidt’s fluid style on skis made him an industry icon and brought Steep Tech roaring to the stage.
Steep Tech was originally designed with extreme innovation in mind. The goal was to create a collection that enabled athletes to perform at their highest possible capabilities, with specialty storage for avalanche beacons, sunglasses and ski tools. Using the same design intention, the collection is now meant to take to the streets. Steep Tech reissues nostalgia for the evolution of skiwear.
