This technology guides the foot through a midsole system that incorporates two different molded elements.
The two materials offer different kind of properties that affect how the shoe reacts to each foot strike.
The adiPRENE® is the shock absorbing element found on the heel of the shoe and the adiPRENE®+ allows the forefoot to bounce and propel itself forward.
Combining these two materials on different parts of the shoes make each Adidas shoe quite effective in reducing impact and releasing energy to propel the runner forwards.
An extremely durable, non-marking rubber used primarily for tennis shoe outsoles and for other high-abrasion applications which offers the optimal balance of excellent abrasion resistance, traction and flexibility.
In linear sports adiWEAR® is used to reduce wear in the heel landing area and the toe-off area.
In court sports it offers durability while still allowing pivoting or sliding movements.
Exclusive technology and double air channels supported by poly flex bars for maximum protction and impact absorption.
Clima365™ is an umbrella concept which encompasses all the Clima Systems technologies: ClimaCool®, ClimaLite®, ClimaWarm®, ClimaProof®.
Using Body Mapping, designers are able to engineer the benefits of ClimaCool®, ClimaWarm® and ClimaProof® right where your body needs them most, providing a head-to-toe approach to temperature optimisation.
In turn this allows athletes to stay dry, comfortable and performing at their optimal body temperature of 37 degrees (C), in any given temperature or weather condition, allowing you to conduct your sport 365 days a year.
The Clima Sytem is a holistic apperal concept which combines material, customer requirements, design and further important characteristica by one of the following technologies:
ClimaCool® isn't just another moisture-wicking fabric.
It is an integrated system of technologies that work together to regulate the athlete's body temperature far better than any single fabric technology can.
ClimaCool® apparel actively conducts heat and sweat away from the body through a combination of heat and moisture-dissipating materials, ventilation channels and three-dimensional fabrics that allow air to circulate close to the skin.
By mapping the body's critical heat and sweat zones using infrared cameras, designers are able to place these technologies exactly where they are needed to optimise the athlete's body temperature.
An athlete can actually stay cooler in ClimaCool® apparel than they can in bare skin.
ClimaLite® fabric pulls sweat away from the skin to the outer fabric face for quick evaporation, enhancing the body's natural temperature regulation
Its wicking performance can be achieved through various options.
These can be either cross-sectional fibres and/or fabric finishing such as hydrophilic finish and/or the usage of microfibres.
ClimaProof® is breathable weather protection that optimises body temperature and keeps you at peak performance in even the harshest of wind, rain and storm conditions by acting as a barrier to the elements while allowing heat and sweat to escape through evaporation.
ClimaProof® is available in three different levels of protection depending on the weather conditions and the level of athletic intensity:
ClimaProof® Wind is the most breathable, lightweight level of protection for those moving fast and throwing off a lot of heat and sweat.
It is perfect for an afternoon run in cool, damp conditions.
It keeps you warm by blocking energy-sapping wind, while allowing the maximum amount of sweat to evaporate away from the skin.
ClimaProof® Rain is wind and waterproof protection for those who are out in inclement weather, and need an extra level of weather and temperature protection.
These garments are suited for day hikes or long, slow training runs in cold, rainy conditions.
ClimaProof® Storm is highly wind and waterproof and built for extreme conditions where maximum protection is needed over a long period.
These garments are suited for mulit-day excursions in heavy wind, rain and snow conditions.
ClimaWarm® is lightweight, breathable insulation that keeps you dry and comfortable in cold weather conditions by using densely woven synthetic fibres to trap warm air close to the skin.
While these fibres are dense enough to trap air, they are spaced far enough apart to easily allow heat-sapping sweat to escape through evaporation.
What if apparel and footwear could provide more than just simple coverage and protection? What if it could be designed around the way your body works - to accent and improve your body's natural movement? What if it could be so effortlessly comfortable to wear it practically becomes part of you? That's the breakthrough thinking behind the revolutionary ForMotion™ concept.
ForMotion™ becomes part of the athlete's body itself to enhance the natural, fluid movement of sport.
This complete body system sets a new standard for comfort, fit and control while in motion.
ForMotion™ Apparel: ForMotion™ apparel is three-dimensionally engineered to move naturally with the athlete's body during sport.
Realizing the shortcomings of traditional two-dimensional apparel, adidas created ForMotion™ to follow every curve of the athlete's body and mimic the natural movement of sport for a better fit and greater comfort while in motion.
Its sport-specific fabrics also feature extreme stretch zones that allow the garment to move naturally with the body even during the most strenuous of athletic activities.
Your body moves differently during different sports, so ForMotion™ apparel is tailored to address the needs of thee different sport types: Linear sports such as running, where the focus is on forward motion; Lateral sports, such as tennis, where the focus is on upper body rotation and quickness.
Exclusive to adidas this NEW Intelligent mould structure offers superior comfort and protection.
By absorbing and dispersing shock waves more evenly, the impact sustained during training is greatly reduced and therfore minimises the risk of strain injuries that can occur.
Exclusive to adidas this NEW technology features an Intelligent mould structure with additional integrated Gel.
Providing unsurpassed safety and comfort it offers maximum protection available to the metacarpals thereby reducing hand and repetitive strain injuries that can occur during any training.
New material that looks, feels and performs like leather.
Extremely strong, PU3G continually absorb perspiration whilst remaining supple and impervious to cracking.
New technology that thanks to its moulded foam structure reinforces the protection of the metacarpals, therefore reducing hand and repetitive strain injuries that can occur during training.
New system designed to provide a more rapid and precise fitting of boxing gloves.
Combined with the elasticity of tightening strap of the glove, the comfort and sensation are unique.
The purpose of adidas TechFit products is to improve joint alignment, muscle balance, and posture plus link key muscle groups together to maximize power generation.
This results in better explosive movements, where power or speed is key, such as Running, lateral cutting movements (Tennis), stopping and starting (Football) or lifting (Training) Key to adidas TechFit products is a compressive and tight garment.
Compression has clear functional and psychological benefits:
Overall, the clear outcome is an improved performance with less wasted energy and an invincible feeling Under the adidas TechFit concept are several different executions such as Powerweb, ClimaCool® , ClimaCool® Seamless and ClimaLite® Seamless.
Powerweb Technology With the additional usage of strategically placed Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) powerbands in combination with a compressive garment, key body areas are linked together.
As a result, posture is further improved and consequently athletic performance.
In addition, the TPU powerbands work with the body to store energy through movement, which would normally be lost, and return this to amplify explosive movements
A system that stabilizes your midfoot in all sport-specific movements and enhances control, support and fit.
It acts like an arch support under the midfoot and allows you to best adapt to the surface you are on.
