Designed for performance trail running, both styles were tested and developed with avid, competitive trail runners that cover many kilometers of trail each week. Inspired to create a lightweight, protective and versatile trail running offering, the brand leveraged their firsthand insight to deliver technical trail running footwear that is fit for use on forest trails, dirt roads, and more diverse or challenging terrain with small obstacles.
— Founded in Norway in 1877, Helly Hansen has long been the brand known for professional-grade gear built for some of the world’s harshest and most breathtaking environments. Delivering gear that helps people stay and feel alive for more than 140 years, the brand is driven to innovate their designs and technologies each season. Continuing in this spirit, for Fall/Winter 2022 Helly Hansen is pleased to launch its new trail running footwear collection, introducing the Hawk Stapro and the Falcon TR.

The Hawk Stapro was designed with a focus on stability, cushioning and protection, and features a protective toe-and-heel cap with a stability cradle at the back of the shoe. Further reinforcing the stability of the shoe, the midsole cradles the foot with a lightweight, stable and well-cushioned HH® Power-Stride compound, for enhanced comfort on longer journeys. While the shoe’s outsole features HH® Surround-Grip for traction on the trail no matter which part of the foot lands first, along with the brand’s proven HH® Max-Grip rubber compound, bolstering traction and performance even on more challenging terrain. Ensuring protection from the elements and trail obstacles, the Hawk Stapro is hydrophobic-treated, enabling water run-off and resistance without compromising on breathability as temperatures increase. While a rock plate helps to safeguard trail runners from sharp stones and rocks.

The Falcon TR is a more neutral, lighter-weight offering for the performance trail runner who wants extra ground control and flexibility. With a breathable and flexible upper and a well-protected and stable midfoot, the shoe is especially ideal for those who move nimbly and dynamically on the trail. In addition, an EVA midsole adds cushion and comfort while maintaining a lightweight and stable build, and ensures runners have more connection with the ground for confidence and agility on varied terrain. While the outsole features a HH® Max-Grip rubber compound offering maximum traction on wet, dry and uneven terrain alike.
“We are incredibly proud to launch our new trail running footwear collection this season,” said Kristofer Eidsgaard, Category Managing Director for Footwear at Helly Hansen. “As a brand, we’re very familiar with a wide array of outdoor environments and the gear needed to support and protect you in different conditions. Drawing on our knowledge of mountains and trails, we also consulted competitive trail runners to develop this collection to ensure that each style would be performance-driven and fit for the technical needs of various trails.”
The men’s Hawk Stapro and men’s and women’s Falcon TR styles will be available in-store and online from Fall 2022.
