For speed-oriented trail and ultra trail runners looking for an extremely light, elastic shoe with precise fit and reactivity.
Tecnica Rolling System
The Tecnica Rolling System consists of 3 different functional areas, each corresponding to the different movement zones of the foot. As usual with shoes, a division of 1/3 is used for the the rear area (heel to arch of the foot) and 2/3 for the front area (arch of the foot to tip of the foot). Tecnica Rolling System reverses this ratio: the rear area of the shoes occupies 2/3; this area ensures premature ground contact, better shock absorption and complete ground contact for a fluid rolling action without dispersion of energy and with continuous grip.
The transmission of energy to the front is guaranteed by the absence of interruptions up to the front area where the greatest rolling movement takes place (corresponds to 1/3 of the shoes); this results in a maximum forward thrust without wasting force, reducing fatigue and improving performance.
The Wrap & Free system was developed at the Tecnica Innovation Center to meet the specific needs of athletes in every area of the foot; in conjunction with the lacing, the system allows the shoe to be adapted to different foot shapes to give an optimal fit and freedom of movement.
Vibram is the world market leader in high-quality rubber soles. Vibram stands for quality, performance, safety, innovation and design. Vibram's products are designed using innovative profiles and the best compounds for their specific application. The new soles have three goals: to guarantee the best performance, comfort at the highest level and quality for a long time to come. These goals are achieved through rigorous lab tests and in field trials by the Vibram team.
Unlike conventional insoles, the long-term compression of OrthoLite products is less than 5%. As a result, the shock absorption and fit of the shoes remains unchanged and guarantee maximum comfort at all times.
OrthoLite open-pored polyurethane is 95% to 100% breathable and allows air to circulate in and around the insole, keeping the foot cool inside the shoe.
OrthoLite's exclusive, open-pored structure regulates moisture balance and supports perspiration removal to ensure a cooler, drier and healthier climate in the shoe. All OrthoLite foams contain a patented, salt-based antibacterial agent as an additive to combat fungi, bacteria and bad odours. The antibacterial effect prevents the formation of microbes that are responsible for the formation of unpleasant odours. OrthoLite insoles can be washed in the washing machine without their properties changing, even after frequent washing. Extremely light and improve shoe performance with airy comfort.
