RealFlex™ Sole Design:
This contains 76 individual sensors that allow for multi-directional flexibility through the entire footstrike, from landing to taking off.
EasyTone has built-in balance pods, featuring Moving Air Technology that transfer air in response to your stride and create micro-instability with every step, much like walking on a sandy beach, which encourages toning through increased muscle activation in 3 key areas of the leg. This gives you 28% more of a workout for your bottom and 11% more for your hamstrings and calves.
ZigTech, one-of-a-kind zig-zag-shaped sole, absorbs the impact of heel strike and propels you forward, while reducing wear and tear up to 20% in key leg muscles making you less prone to injury. The Premier ZigTech range has become a very popular choice for competitive runners and top triathletes. The shoe can be used over shorter distances as well as marathons and ultras. Former Comrades gold medalists have made this their shoe of choice for tackling Comrades in 2011.
3D Ultralite Outsole:
3D Ultralite is a proprietary foam material engineered to be lightweight, with extra durability and responsiveness. As a result, shoes made with 3D Ultralite are 10-20% lighter than shoes made with conventional construction. The proprietary blend of materials in 3D Ultralite includes EVA, rubber and other compounds. The mix of these materials can be varied to meet the specific needs of different activities. The process of creating 3D Ultralite is based on injection-molding, which creates more uniform, more consistent sole units.
HexRide, a cushioning technology, was created to provide the athlete with a cushioned, lightweight ride. The midsole of a HexRide shoe is cored out into a pattern of hexagonal recesses. The air inside the hexagonal shapes is sealed in with an impact resistant polymer film to create a lightweight yet very cushioned ride.
KineticFit provides a fit system that accommodates the changes in size and shape of an athlete’s foot as it moves. From impact through toe-off, the foot can change up to half of a shoe size. KineticFit construction makes use of a series of engineered stretch panels positioned in key areas of the shoe. These panels allow the shoe to respond and move naturally with the foot.
Rigid External Shank:
A rigid material in the shank area of the midsole which can be found on the midfoot area to helps keep the foot neutral in the midfoot phase of the gait cycle.
Stability Span Medial Support:
A firmer density of EVA located on the medial side of the midsole that slows the rate and controls the maximum angle of over-pronation. This is designed for those runners who over-pronates when running.
Acts like a heel cradle, when heated this U-Form Technology contours to your foot for a customised fit.
Heating instructions: heat shoes in a conventional oven at 200 degrees Fahrenheit for 3 minutes; put on shoe, lace it up tight and sit 8 minutes while shoe forms to foot; after one hour, once shoe has cooled, your custom fitting shoe will be ready for game time.
SmoothFit is an upper technology that provides the ultimate in comfortable fit. The construction of SmoothFit is designed from the inside out. All seams are either eliminated or sealed both inside and outside the upper. The goal is to create a fit with minimal potential irritation inside a light, flexible, streamlined aesthetic upper.
DMX Ride Foam is a proprietary foam formulation that delivers a cushioned ride in a longer lasting, more lively feeling system. DMX Foam is typically more consistent and longer lasting than standard midsole formulations.
DMX Ride+ Foam is a cushioned foam midsole which is stronger than original DMX. Longer lasting and more cushioned, helps your stride feel fluid from heel to forefoot.
DMX Shear Technology:
DMX Shear is a cushioning component that works to slow down and distribute the stress at heel strike. On impact, DMX Shear allows the foot to continue forward while slowing the heel of the shoe. The slowing of the heel enables force to be distributed both vertically and horizontally creating less stress on the foot.
Forefoot protective toe cap that are designed to help prevent stones and debris from hitting your toes and reducing the chance of injuries when running on rough terrain.
DMPRTek Rubber Outsole:
This trail specific lugged outsole is designed to provide decent cushioning, good traction and handling making sure you stays on your feet in slippery conditions.

Blown Rubber Outsole:
This Lighweight flexibile material provides added cushioning while maintaining durability and a smooth ride when you run.
DMX Max Midsole:
DMX Max is a hollow two-pod cushioning system made for the walker seeking the maximum amount of DMX cushioning. Air trapped inside DMX Max travels back and forth under the foot in concert with each walker’s individual stride. This moving cushion of air delivers sensational cushioning and comfort.
Hexalite is a lightweight, honeycomb-shaped cushioning material that provides enhanced shock absorption in areas of peak pressure. The Hexalite technology is 4 times more durable than EVA foam and absorbs up to 23% more energy than the equivalent amount of EVA Foam. Tough urethane film combined with the structural integrity of the honeycomb linkage make it one of the most durable cushioning systems used in footwear.
Located in heel area, usually found on VibeTrain's shoe range. This wave looking responsive ENERGYFOAM provides a plush cushioning and help maximize return of energy for your workout.

PlayDry is a moisture management system that helps keep you cooler, dryer and more comfortable. This “base layer” moves moisture, accelerates evaporation, increases ventilation and reduces abrasion without trapping the body’s thermal energy.
Playshield is an “outer layer” that acts as the final shield against the elements. Breathable linings, friction reducing fabrics, strategic venting and ergonomic construction integrate to maximize the athletic performance in the most inclement weather.
PlayWarm is a “cover layer” that creates “dead air” space to slow the body’s thermal energy loss, while assisting in the dispersion of moisture initiated by the PlayDry base layer.
XStatic is a heat-regulating thermodynamic silver meets an EPA-registered antimicrobial. Together they create an anti-odor, anti-sweat and anti-cold fabric so powerful, it's performance stays true over time. XStatic silver embedded fibers react to the body's temperature, keeping you cool when it's hot and warm when it's cold.
