Since its inception, Vollebak has had an unwavering focus on and commitment to pushing the boundaries of performance in the garment realm, though for its latest release the innovative outfit has, for the first time, applied its technical expertise to the running and workout apparel space, resulting in the all-new “Race to Zero” system.
Aiming to get this system’s weight as close to zero as possible (hence the name), the Race to Zero system is comprised of an ultralight t-shirt and a matching pair of shorts — both of which are breathable, quick-drying, water-repellent, and equipped with four-way stretch properties throughout. Laser-cut and boasting a bonded hem and seams, the running shorts — which weigh only 0.279lbs — are crafted from an outer layer of elastane-infused nylon mated to a soft elastane-infused poly-blend liner, both of which are sourced from Italy. They also feature an elastic rope tied waistband with rubber-tipped rope and a back pocket with concealed lockable zipper. Outfitted with flatlock stitching throughout and an antimicrobial treatment, the 0.249lb ultralight t-shirt is made from the same Italian poly-blend used for the shorts’ liner. Both items are also packable and can break down into a highly compact form that fits in the palm of your hand. Offered in black or khaki color options, the Vollebak Race To Zero System is available now with pricing set at $110 for the shorts and $195 for the t-shirt.
