98 Graphene rubber cleats per shoe deliver the world’s toughest hybrid grip.
Graphene foam propels 25% more energy return for longer-lasting wild speed.
A perfectly cushioned midsole and breathable upper enhance all-round comfort.
Graphene-enhanced rubber delivers the world’s toughest grip – insane sticky traction AND increased durability, no compromise. 50% stronger, 50% more elastic, 50% harder wearing, scientifically proven.
98 multi-directional 4mm deep lugs on each shoe give aggressive trail grip and smooth ride on roads. They’ve been meticulously shaped and positioned to improve both propulsion at the front and braking at the rear.
Increased flex points through the outsole, both vertically and horizontally, give greater adaptability and a feel of nimbleness underfoot.
MIDSOLE & FOOTBED:
Graphene-enhanced G-FLY cushioned foam is more resistant to wear. It retains its thickness and optimum levels of snappy energy return for longer, helping runners feel faster and fresher over greater distances.
The foam gives 25% more energy return. Lab tests show that even when the foam is aged to mimic extensive use, it still delivers more energy return than some unaged foams. Athletes testing the foam said it was still performing well after 1,200km – double industry standard.
BOOMERANG footbed features hundreds of expanded TPU beads that compress and spring back for 40% more energy return – and greater cushioning – than standard footbeds. Retains its 6mm thickness and optimum performance for longer, and wicks away moisture.
8mm drop (heel to toe differential) perfect for anyone transitioning from traditional road running shoes.
A more open, yet durable, mesh around the forefoot and midfoot allows greater breathability. Heel counter helps delivers a locked-in, supportive feel.
Strong, flexible toe bumper protects front of feet from rocks and trail debris.
With a slightly wider toe box and a plush, gusseted tongue, it gives a comfortable feel and ride. External heel loops make it easier and quicker to put shoes on.
