Know Thy Selves

A woman can be many things at once. She can be grounded and driven, a go-getter who knows herself and knows what she wants. But she can also be carefree and imaginative, a dreamer who lives in the moment. She can’t be defined. She exists beyond easy categories.

Vitality’s new Duplexity collection pays tribute to the complexity inside each of us. With its solid, foundational colorways and daring serpent prints, Duplexity can be whatever you want it to be: practical and reliable, adventurous and wild, or something in between—just like you.

With the Duplexity collection we’re introducing a brand-new Vitality fabric line: Revive.

Revive is Vitality’s newest performance fabric. Made to match your highest intensity, Revive has a sleek handfeel, medium compression, and a range of advanced tech features like enhanced breathability, sweat-wicking and antimicrobial treatments, and UPF 50+ protection. 

But what really takes Revive to the next level is its subtle cooling properties. Microencapsulated xylitol and peppermint in the fabric interact with your body’s moisture to pull heat away from the skin, keeping your body temperature in the optimal range for peak performance. (And, bonus feature: Revive doesn’t collect pet hair! It’s game-changing.)

This debut Revive collection includes foundational styles like the Revive Pant, Revive Volley Short, and Revive Racer Bra and Tank

And we can’t imagine a better way to debut Revive line than with the Duplexity collection’s mix of classic solid colorways and exciting new prints! Designed to offer a subtly abstract, more wearable take on traditional snake prant, our new
Forest Serpent, Sapphire Serpent, Iron Serpent, Wine Serpent, and Midnight Serpent prints bring a spirit of adventure to The Vitality Color System®’s Classic Color Palette, plus each print piece has a dyed-to-match ground layer.

The Revive fabric also makes a cameo appearance in our new Breeze Train Short. A perfect hybrid piece, the Breeze Train Short features our lightweight and breathable Breeze fabric shell with a liner and no-dig waistband constructed of new Revive fabric (giving it just the right amount of compression and bonus tummy control). Its dolphin-cut sides and built-in pockets make it perfect for everything from morning runs to high-intensity workouts, and to add an extra layer of comfort during even your most intense training sessions, we’ve added sweat-wicking and fast-drying tech.

And for the first time in 2024, the Duplexity collection will also include new men’s pieces!

The sibling style to the women’s Breeze Train Short, the men’s Prime Train Short is a reinvention of our all-time top-rated men’s product. We gave it loads of new features like a softer, more breathable fabric, sweat-wicking tech, recycled materials, improved fit, and subtle design upgrades like color-matched reflective striping and strategic ventilation for cooling airflow. Oh, and as if that weren’t enough, it’s also coming in…serpent print

Last but certainly not least—especially if you’re a long-time fan of Vitality’s men’s line—we’re reintroducing our classic men’s Vital Tee in a fully reengineered fabric! If you loved just how soft and lightweight the original Vital Tee was, you’re going to be shocked when you experience the new Vital Tee.

This new Vital fabric is a next-generation natural fiber made of renewable cellulose from sustainably managed beech forests. It’s softer and more durable than cotton, more environmentally friendly than synthetics, more absorbent, quicker drying, stretchier, stronger, silkier, and lighter weight. Long story short, everything you want in a t-shirt, it’s just…more of that. 

And to celebrate the new Duplexity collection, our design team has curated a selection of mix-and-matchable items from our back catalog. From 4.25–4.27 save 15% on Duplexity Pair Perks.

Duplexity launches Thursday, April 25, at 10 am MT. But take our word for it, our Vitality Fam loves a serpent print, so we expect this collection to sell out fast. You’re gonna want to take advantage of our Early Access private shopping from 9:30–10 am MT, exclusively for text subscribers. If you live in the U.S. and haven’t already, sign up now.
