TECHNOLOGY:

 

ZERO DROP: Places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to encourage low-impact running technique, respects the natural alignment of the body and strengthens calf muscles that are weakened by raised heels.

 

Balanced Cushioning™ Platform: System that places the heel and forefoot at the same distance from the ground to stimulate low impact when running.

 

FOOT SHAPED TOE BOX: Allows your toes to spread out comfortably and naturally and for the big toe to reduce pronation. The result is improved stability and increased propulsion for optimal running performance.

 

InnerFlex™: Internal grooves in the midsole. By increasing multi-dimensional flexibility they allow the feet to be more responsive and improve speed and performance. This technology also reduces the weight of the shoe for a better running experience.

 

Altra Ego™: Thanks to a clever mix of materials combining comfort, flexibility, rebound and resistance, the Altra Ego is the holy grail of cushioning. Its close to the ground cushioning and increased responsiveness gives you unequalled sensations. Altra Ego™ is designed for those who do not want to focus on comfort over dynamism.

Altra Ego dynamism enables maximum energy return to help you keep rhythm. This innovative material has the distinction of providing a better rebound, better energy return and better durability.

Unlike EVA midsoles, Altra EGO™ gains in performance when it heats up. In comparative tests with traditional running shoe foams this new cushioning has proven incredible durability, allowing it to maintain its cushioning properties and responsiveness throughout the life of the shoe.

 

FootPod™: This exclusive outsole respects the morphology of the human foot and helps it to move naturally for optimised flex, enhanced support and improved balance.

 

StabiliPod™: Acts as a stabilizing tripod by enhancing the three natural stability zones of the foot, preventing the onset of a collapse or major pronation of the foot.

 

GuideRail™: A feature found on our dynamic processing shoes that provide you with orientation whenever you need it.

 

COMPOSITION:

 

EVA: The moulded EVA foam insert is particularly flexible. It helps improve shock absorption and lightness.
