Wear-resistant rubber Groundtrax outsole, designed to offer superior stability
ZPLATE: Sturdy laterally, flexible frontally. The ZPLATE® shank in the midsole ensures proper flexibility of the shoe, for optimal riding and walking comfort. At the same time, transverse rigidity protects the foot in case of an accident.
Groundtrax® outsoles are engineered to ensure stability, grip, and traction both on the footpegs and off the saddle. This is due to the design of lugs and grooves, as well as the choice of the rubber compound, which also maximize the wear-resistance and self-cleaning of the tread. The sole features a dedicated gear shift area, to provide higher precision during the ride.
D3O: In its raw form the D3O® molecules flow freely, thanks to their non-Newtonian nature, allowing the material to be soft and flexible. On impact, the D3O® molecules lock together, absorb and dissipate the energy from impacts, significantly reducing the amount of force that gets transmitted to the body compared to standard materials.
