POC presents the new Kortal Race MIPS and Devour helmets

The Kortal Race MIPS is a brand new all-mountain bike helmet packed with advanced safety, innovation and technology. It is also the first helmet ever to feature the recently presented Integra MIPS. The Devour takes a new approach to vision and features POC's Clarity lens technology. Integrated with exceptional coverage and eye protection, it has been designed for the needs of modern off-road and on-road riders.

The Kortal Race MIPS and Devour Clarity, which recently received the Design and Innovation Awards, are available for purchase online and in-store from today.

Commenting on the new releases, Oscar Huss, Head of Product, POC , said: “ Today mountain bikes are more capable than ever, offering everything from XC efficiency to declining DH performance. Riders now have a host of new opportunities that we wanted to enhance with a new benchmark in helmet and goggle protection. With a host of integrated technologies, safety solutions and brand new innovations, Kortal and Devour represent a significant advance in terms of protection and vision. "



Inspired by the Tectal, which introduced POC's vision for trail helmets, integrating innovative safety technology into a lightweight, well-ventilated helmet, the Kortal Race MIPS takes POC's ideas further. It sets a new benchmark for mountain bikers at home with the most aggressive and capable all-mountain bikes. The helmet features a brand new design, a patented detachable visor system to protect the rider's neck, aramid bridges for strength, a Medical ID NFC chip that uses digital technology to allow the helmet to speak for you when you can't ™. A RECCO® reflector that allows you to be searchable over large areas, especially in mountain environments. The Kortal Race MIPS is also the first helmet in the world to use the brand new Integra MIPS system, an almost invisible rotational impact protection system.

To further extend its protection, the Kortal Race MIPS is a certified speed pedelec helmet, which exceeds the Dutch standard NTA8776, which tests helmets at higher impact speeds than using the standard bicycle. The visor of the helmet has several positions to allow you to store the goggles underneath when not in use. And of course it goes perfectly with the new Devour Clarity sunglasses and even has a rear "eye garage" for storage. The Kortal, which will feature a reduced list of technology, will also be released alongside the Kortal Race MIPS.


Oscar Huss, Head of Product, POC, continued: “Developing world-leading protection is the real reason why POC exists. This, coupled with our clear mission, opens up a whole new world of innovation and opportunity. Kortal Race MIPS and Devour Clarity have benefited from this approach and present a number of integrated technologies and new ideas that have been recognized with innovation awards. Being recognized with these awards is humbling and inspires us to keep looking for new solutions and innovations, to always consider things that have never been done before ”.

Devour sunglasses , developed with exceptional coverage, give a new sense of freedom and flexibility and are comfortable both on the road and on the trail. The sunglasses feature fully adjustable nose pads and temples that make it easy to find a secure fit for each head shape and allow the rider to create a more personalized fit. Surface details will be crystal clear thanks to Clarity lens technology that optimizes the color spectrum and the frame design maximizes peripheral vision and allows for significant airflow. Devour Clarity offers full UV protection (UV400) and features a Ri-Pel lens coating that protects against dirt, oil and water and a scratch-resistant coating.

Garmin pedals for power measurement and advanced cycling dynamics analysis

Garmin officially introduces its new family of pedals for power measurement, for both cycling and mountain biking. The innovative Rally RK, Rally RS and Rally XC have been extensively tested, even in extreme conditions, and offer compatibility with Look Keo, Shimano SPD-SL and Shimano SPD bindings, for both on-road and off-road riding. Precise, reliable and easy to install, they have a new design that makes them performing and at the same time robust and resistant.

In the modern language of cyclists, professionals or amateurs, the meaning of "power" has been widely assimilated, so much so that today talking about watts is no longer a taboo. And among the main players who have contributed to the spread of this technical culture, there is certainly Garmin which today announces Rally , its new series of power sensors. In addition to the power values, the new pedals have been designed to measure cadence and to analyze all the advanced cycling dynamics, such as right / left leg balance, power phase and other data of interest to all cycling enthusiasts on road and mountain bike, up to the gravel world.

Highly technological and performing tools, therefore, which will accompany the athletes in their preparation, to obtain better and better results.

« We know that cyclists and bikers train to improve their performance every day, and for this reason we have designed and created not just one, but a real complete family of power sensors that they can rely on to achieve their goals. - comments Stefano Viganò , CEO of Garmin Italia - These pedals have undergone numerous tests and tests, taking their use to the limit, to ensure high levels of reliability in measuring power which, as we all know, is a reference value important in the preparation of every enthusiast, even in the amateur world ».

The project managers who developed the Rally family drew on a group of over 100 testers from various disciplines, who pedaled an overall mileage equal to five times around the Earth.

Three models for one passion

The Rally power sensors are available in three different versions, two for road cycling and one for off-road cycling. Each of them is available in two further types: one with double pedal detection (200) and one with single detection (100).

  • Rally RK100 and Rally RK200 : designed for road cycling and compatible with Look Keo cleats.
  • Rally RS100 and Rally RS200 : designed for road cycling and compatible with Shimano SPD-SL cleats.
  • Rally XC100 and Rally XC200 : designed for off-road cycling and compatible with Shimano SPD bindings.

Designed with the sensor incorporated in the spindle, the models of the Rally series ensure precise and reliable measurement of the power data during any training or competition.

DOUBLED POWER . With the dual sensor pedals Rally RK200, Rally RS200 and Rally XC200 athletes can independently analyze the values expressed by the right and left leg, so as to intervene in case of discrepancies or substantial differences in the expression of power between the two limbs. With the ability to measure cadence, power, left / right leg balance and advanced cycling dynamics, they show how and where most power is produced, helping cyclists and bikers understand their strengths and strengths. of weakness, so as to be able to intervene in a targeted manner. Another analysis that the new Garmin pedals allow concerns the time spent pedaling seated and standing, thus showing the effectiveness of the two positions. Last, but certainly not least, the Rally sensors allow you to accurately measure in which point of the foot the most force is applied, and therefore power, so as to be able to suggest a better positioning of the shoe cleats.

INDOOR TRAINING . The recent success of training in indoor cycling has brought many cyclists closer to knowing their power value in a more or less precise way. Depending on the model used, smart trainers are able to provide this parameter to those who ride at home. Those who want to have a super precise evaluation data on their performance, can associate the power data of the Rally via Bluetooth ® or ANT + protocol to interactive eTraining programs such as Tacx Training app or others from third parties.

SINGLE DETECTION POWER . Garmin offers a power sensing approach solution with the single sensor models Rally RK100, Rally RS100 and Rally XC100 , which read only instantaneous, average, maximum power and cadence. If the user subsequently decides to switch to a dual sensor system, because he wants to expand the critical knowledge of his way of pedaling in a surgical manner, he can do so by purchasing a second pedal with integrated wattage detector; as a result, a world of new metrics dedicated to him will open up.

A COMPLETE NETWORK . With the new Rally series, Garmin provides users with a real network of tools to monitor their performance on the pedals. The new power sensors can in fact be associated with the Edge line cycle computers (where compatible) and with the Garmin Connect ™ app, through which it is possible to download all the recorded data, analyze them and compare them with each other, to plan your workouts even more accurate and efficient. They can interface with the most popular indoor training platforms, such as the Tacx Training app, or those of Zwift and TrainerRoad.

EASE OF INSTALLATION AND EXTENDED DURATION . The Rally power sensors mount like any other pedal, and can therefore be moved quickly from one bike to another. A particular novelty concerns their portability: to allow those who are divided between on-road and off-road training, Garmin has designed a spindle for Rally that makes them easily transferable to different pedal bodies. In this case the user will have to purchase the appropriate kit separately.

The new Rally power sensors feature a replaceable battery with up to 120 hours of life, ensuring extended use before it needs to be replaced.

Available right now in the best stores, the new Garmin Rally power sensors have a recommended retail price that varies depending on the type of model.

Second generation Cloudstratus on-running running shoes

Second generation Cloudstratus on-running running shoe

When it comes to long-haul mileage, comfort is king. That’s the guiding philosophy behind the new Cloudstratus – engineered to deliver supreme cushioning on the road, whether your long run is a couple of miles or a marathon. The second-generation Cloudstratus is where maximum cushioning meets maximum performance and the latest evolution of our shoe with a double-stack of CloudTec®, now gives you even more confidence to conquer your runs. If you’re looking for more comfort to go the distance, the Cloudstratus is for you. Here’s how we created the perfect performance shoe that offers maximum cushioning over medium to long distances.

Second generation Cloudstratus on-running running shoeDouble impact

The original Cloudstratus was the first shoe to feature two layers of CloudTec® and we’ve improved on that winning formula, extending the double layer of Cloud elements into the forefoot and adding our Helion™ superfoam. It’s a powerful combination that delivers even more cushioning and a more dynamic take off. Maximum protection, without sacrificing that all-important responsive feel.

Wider ride

We wanted even more runners to enjoy the benefits of that unique max cushioning on their road runs, so we also totally re-engineered the bottom unit to include a wider forefoot. That wider forefoot improves the overall support without stifling speed, and while the Cloudstratus isn’t a support shoe like our Cloudace and Cloudflyer, the result is an even more cushioned sensation with additional support. It takes even more impact out of asphalt. All without slowing you down.

Second generation Cloudstratus on-running running shoeRelease the pressure

The more energy you have, the further you can go. But providing energy-saving responsiveness and the kind of cushioned protection that keeps legs and feet feeling fresh, is a tough nut to crack. That’s where a trio of unique On innovations come in, creating a midsole that’s big on energy return, durability and road protection. Those double stacked layers of Helion™ superfoam work with connected forefoot Cloud elements to enhance vertical and horizontal cushioning, distributing pressure as your foot lands, then supporting a powerful push-off as our carefully tuned polypropylene Speedboard® drives you forward. “Along with a slightly stronger rocker design in the forefoot, the Speedboard® supports a very smooth transition from heel to toe,” says Edouard Coyon, Head of Footwear Product Management at On. “But it also provides the snappiness or dynamism that’s part of the DNA of all On shoes. Together this helps the shoe to feel a bit more dynamic than its competitors.” The result: less impact, more running.

Second generation Cloudstratus on-running running shoeFlex appeal

“People who run longer, beginner runners and anyone who just wants more cushioning and comfort, tend to like a bit more room in the forefoot,” says Edouard. “So we wanted to make sure the upgraded shoe offered a more generous forefoot fit.” In addition to the wider forefoot, we’ve refined the inner sock construction and improved the heel hold, to create instant step-in comfort and reliable custom fit that'll make you want to run twice as far.

“We wanted to give runners confidence and create a shoe that’ll be your best friend, with superb comfort you can really rely on. We worked hard on the details to ensure maximum comfort and a really cosy foot feel

For example, the full engineered mesh has a limited number of overlays to avoid unnecessary pressure points. The heel has additional foam for better hold and plush comfort. And the anatomically engineered mesh upper is designed to be soft and strong, optimized for comfort and breathable for airflow. But made with movement in mind. We also kept the popular star-lacing configuration from the first-gen Cloudstratus. This recruits more mesh from the shoe’s flank, wrapping the foot for a secure fit and supporting your natural motion. Where your foot flexes, the shoe flexes too. And that makes for a natural ride no matter how long you’re in the saddle.

Second generation Cloudstratus on-running running shoeOutsole

The CloudTec® outsole has evolved too. The Cloudstratus features a high-performance rubber grip compound that delivers unshakeable road hold and the kind of durability that gives you the confidence to go further.

Treading lighter

As part of On’s bigger commitment to reduce environmental impact, we’re working hard to create shoes that perform for the planet too. In the all-new Cloudstratus, we’ve used twice the amount of recycled material than in previous generations. That means 70% of the polyester is recycled and 20% of the entire shoe is made from recycled materials. And we’re working on the rest.

ALTRA running shoes: anALTRA way to run and imagine your ride When you run there are things you can measure. Times that can be enclosed by a stopwatch. Distances that can be marked with scientific precision from your GPS. And then there are performances that you can't measure but that you can feel and live on your skin. Like the performance of your running shoes, the only real companions of hundreds of miles ground on roads and dirt roads. In this case you have no tools to tell you how it will go first, or that they can tell you how it went, but you will have only yourself: the most severe judge for your body. This is what Brian Beckstead, one of the founders of Altra, must have thought when, in 2010, at the 94th mile of the Wasatch 100 ”he found himself crying with joy for having realized that he didn't even have a blister on his feet, and to have improved, to same time, his own record of the previous year. It is in situations like this that a shoe can say a lot about itself to those who are wearing it. And if there are running shoes that can be described based on materials, design, or a logo, there are ALTRAs that can be told based on a passion that becomes the first technique and then reality.
This is Altra running running shoes . It's a passion for running cultivated by two young people. It is the curiosity to understand how to change and improve, grown in the back room of the running store of your family. The courage to experiment, kilometer after kilometer, challenge after challenge like a trial shoe can change and make your running experience more and more comfortable. AnALTRA is all this that becomes a trial running shoe where passion translates into an unparalleled realization technique. Suffice it to say that one of its creators, warmed the shoes that his friends wore, in a toaster oven, to modify the structure and make them more suitable for the way of running.

ALTRA men's running shoes and ALTRA women's running shoes . The top models for these running shoes are lone peak, torin, escalante racer, Olympus, Vali, Paradigm.
Altra's attention to runners has reached levels never touched so far. The shoe is differentiated on the basis of female and male physical characteristics, thus reaching models dedicated to female runners. The starting point of such a revolutionary concept is the physical conformation of the female foot, characterized by a higher back of the foot and a longer arch. This is how Fit4Her was born, the shoe imagined and designed for her.

ALTRA zero drop running
But Altra is a universe of ideas that turn into a pair of running shoes. All the models are characterized by the ZeroDrop system, which allows the foot to remain perfectly aligned so as to have a more natural position, a zero impact support and a more correct running posture.
FootShape Toe Box is the ALTRA system designed by Altra and present in all shoes. Thanks to this patent, all the toes can be extended inside the shoe in a natural way, allowing the toe to remain straight. This position will result in a stability never achieved before and in a considerable capacity to push.

The ALTRA flagship running and trail running shoes are lone peak, torin, escalante racer, Olympus, Vali, Paradigm and ALTRA women's trail running shoes


How to choose the perfect wetsuit

5 TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE PERFECT WETSUIT


Every athlete is an individual, and open water swimming is no different. One swimmer's needs can be hindrances or hindrances for another. This is why it's important to know what gear you need, especially when it comes to your wetsuit. The wrong choice can negatively affect your technique and your performance in the water.

To choose your perfect wetsuit, you need to look at various factors; above all, you need to know yourself well as a swimmer and athlete. Knowing what your needs are, as well as your preferences, strengths or weaknesses, is essential when choosing among the models.

We will offer you five factors to consider when choosing your wetsuit: your swimming level and technique, the performance of the wetsuit, your goals as an athlete, the size and finally the price.

YOUR SWIMMING LEVEL, A DECIDING FACTOR IN CHOOSING A WETSUIT


Knowing your swimming level is the first point you need to consider when considering purchasing a new wetsuit. Obviously, those new to open water will not have the same needs as an experienced swimmer with several kilometers behind him.

If you are just starting out, your technique is probably not fully perfected yet. You will need more buoyancy, especially in the leg area, to lift your hips and help position your whole body correctly, achieving the least hydrodynamic restriction possible. In this case, wetsuits such as Predator or 3.8 are recommended and will be the most suitable for your needs.

If, on the other hand, you are an experienced swimmer and technique is your strong point, you will seek maximum flexibility. You might want to consider a wetsuit like the Alpha that fits your body like a second skin, allowing you to enjoy every swim.

FEATURES SUITABLE FOR YOUR NEEDS


Once you have a good understanding of your swimming level, you can then evaluate the performance of each wetsuit model and make a decision based on your needs. You should look into the following aspects:

● Flexibility: More flexibility means more freedom of movement.
● Buoyancy: As discussed above, a wetsuit with more or less buoyancy can help or damage you depending on your swimming technique.
● Hydrodynamics: For swimmers with a less refined technique, greater buoyancy will help you correct your posture, achieving a more hydrodynamic position.
● Thermal Insulation: If you love swimming in cold water or if you enjoy swimming in the ocean even during the winter months, the amount of thermal insulation a wetsuit can provide will be a key factor to consider. The new RS1 Thermal, for example, is the wetsuit that offers the greatest thermal protection of the entire Orca range. It has a specially developed inner lining to maximize heat retention in open water swimming, which will allow you to swim longer in lower temperatures.
● Visibility: an important point to consider if you are used to long training sessions in open water. In addition to the buoy as basic equipment, a wetsuit that makes you visible to boats, surfers and other swimmers will provide you with greater safety, allowing you to always be located. This is the case with wetsuits such as the Open Water Core Hi-Vis or the Open Water SW.

WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS AS A SWIMMER?


Another factor to consider when choosing your wetsuit is your goals as an athlete. Do you want a wetsuit for recreational swimming? For competitions? For participation in a triathlon or an Ironman?

So, depending on your motivations and your goals, you will choose a wetsuit that suits your swimmer needs from the triathlon range, the open water range or even the swimrun range.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE


Once you have chosen a wetsuit model based on your needs and goals, you need to determine your size. You can consult the following guide or get advice from an expert.

In general, the suit should fit very well, without being baggy. This is to prevent water from entering and creating the unpleasant "swelling effect" while swimming. A wetsuit that doesn't fit and doesn't fit your body well, whether it's too big or small, can produce unnecessary chafing and discomfort during your sessions at sea.

THE PRICE MUST NOT BE THE DETERMINING FACTOR


When it comes to wetsuits, a high or low price doesn't mean a wetsuit is better or worse. That's why it's important to note that a wetsuit shouldn't be chosen for its price, but rather for everything mentioned above: its performance and your needs and goals as an open water swimmer. Just because it's the most expensive model doesn't mean it's the best choice for you.

We hope these five tips have been helpful in clearing up any doubts about choosing the right wetsuit for you.

No one, more than the creators of the On running shoes, must have wondered what a runner is looking for in a pair of running shoes. It is a question that only those who really run can answer. And whoever imagined and then created the shoes On running knows this well. Because behind it there is not only experience but three experiences: those of three fans for running, able to look at the race with different eyes. A former duathlon champion, an engineer from the Zurich Polytechnic and a simple, so to speak, lover of running. Together, they decided to create the perfect running shoe. The shoe that in just eight years has become the running shoe chosen by millions of runners worldwide. At the base of the global success of On Running shoes, there is only technique and passion. The technique behind the design of every single model is the passion of the race, which makes On a shoe suitable for the amateur race as well as to face the toughest routes and allow, for example, Frederik Von Lierde to win in the 2013 the title of Ironman cutting the finish line first with his On Cloudracer at his feet. Or suitable for those who, like Triathlon champion Nicola Sprig, get on the podium at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro after running with an On running pair

What makes On running shoes so special?

Technique and knowledge of the race. Of the ability to give to those who run on a pair of shoes, the feeling of "running on clouds". Extreme lightness is accompanied by a cushioning capacity limited to just the foot support phase, letting the shoe be free to follow the natural thrust of the foot a second after touching the ground and giving, literally, the feeling of taking flight from the ground. Cushioning and take-off thus become a natural sequence that never hinders the race but accompanies it making it incredibly light. And it's not just a feeling. Studies carried out on On shoes, performed by leading scientific institutes such as the Swiss Federal Institute in Zurich, show that those who have raced wearing On shoes on their feet, run with a lower than average heart rate and lower blood lactate levels.
Wearing On Running shoes means choosing a company that makes research, innovation and development a goal to be achieved every day. And the succession of prototypes and models over time testifies to attention to the race that never fails. As in 2014 when On launches the On Cloud shoes, the first fully cushioned shoe.
Today On running offers models based on patented technologies such as Helion super foam, which ensures maximum resistance to stress and, at the same time, the highest levels of lightness that combine cushioning and elasticity, maintaining maximum performance in all weather conditions.

The leading shoes are ON RUNNING, running and trail running shoes: ON CLOUD, ON CLOUD X, ON CLOUDSWIFT, ON CLOUDFLOW

How to choose equipment for open water swimming

When you start out in the world of open water swimming, it is completely normal to face doubts and questions, such as: What equipment should I have? What kind of wetsuit should I wear? How many millimeters thick should it be? Do I need accessories?

Obviously there is no answer to all these questions, since every athlete is different and will have different needs depending on their experience and future goals for open water swimming.

An experienced swimmer who has trained in the ocean for years and knows the area won't need the same equipment as someone just starting out in the discipline. There will also be differences depending on whether you swim in winter or summer, if you are considering competing in any event or triathlon, or if your goal is to simply swim for the fun of it (our favorite).


THE IMPORTANCE OF THE LEVEL OF EXPERIENCE IN OPEN WATER IN THE CHOICE OF EQUIPMENT


Aside from the essential swimming cap and goggles (best mirrored to avoid sun discomfort) that everyone should wear, if you have little or no experience in the ocean, you should first worry about safety and comfort. As a novice swimmer, you will want to be comfortable and calm. You want to dive into the water with the confidence that you can take your first strokes in the ocean without worrying about the cold or the new equipment you are using that affects your swimming. A wetsuit that has high flexibility, neutral buoyancy and provides the right amount of thermal insulation will be ideal for starting this new adventure in open water swimming.

And of course, when it comes to safety, visibility must also be mentioned. It is important, especially if you have limited skills in open water swimming or if you are unfamiliar with the area you will be swimming in, to be clearly visible to others while in the ocean. Wear items such as a high visibility cap (neoprene or silicone depending on the water temperature), a buoy or a

wetsuit with orange sleeves will provide more safety in training sessions and avoid unnecessary fright with other swimmers, surfers or boats. The buoy, in addition to providing high visibility, is an essential element for any open water swimmer and should always be present. Not only is it a basic safety accessory, but it gives you greater buoyancy should you stop for a rest. It also allows you to transport your personal items in a safe, practical and watertight way.


DIFFERENT EQUIPMENT FOR DIFFERENT PURPOSES


Regardless of your level of open water swimming experience, the equipment and accessories you need will also vary based on your goals.

For example, if your idea is to start swimming in cold water, you will definitely need to consider a suit with superior thermal insulation that prevents as much cold water as possible from entering the suit while swimming. In this case, you should also consider neoprene accessories such as a cap or hood, booties or gloves that will help you retain as much body heat as possible to withstand longer workouts in cold temperatures.


On the other hand, if your goal is to swim in warmer waters while always maintaining buoyancy and a high level of freedom of movement, you should look for a sleeveless wetsuit or you may like the option of a two-piece that you can alternate depending on. the situation.

If you want to compete, you won't have the same needs if your goal is a triathlon as if you were preparing for a long-distance race. For a triathlon, for example, you will not only focus on flexibility and buoyancy (depending on your level) but you will also look for a suit that is particularly easy to put on and take off, which allows you to make the transitions as quickly as possible. If, on the other hand, you are preparing for an event that will take you many hours in the water, you should again look for good thermal insulation so that the cold does not move you.


There are certainly many variables to consider and many options available to you, but only you know what the best solution is when choosing open water swimming equipment. To summarize what we just discussed, you should consider your experience and goals. From there, you can make the selection that best suits your needs and how you will use your equipment.

1. Clean the suit with fresh water to remove excess salt water or chlorine.

2. Apply a small amount of neutral pH soap to the suit and gently scrub the suit panels.

3. Rinse the neoprene to remove any soap residue.

4. Turn the wetsuit over and hang it from the waist to dry naturally without exposing it to direct sunlight or any heat source.

2. KEEP OUR SUIT


Proper storage of the wetsuit will prevent the appearance of wrinkles in the neoprene and will keep the seams free from tension over time.

The best way to store a wetsuit is to hang it at the waist, to avoid tension in the most sensitive areas (shoulders and arms).



1. In high elasticity suits (eg Orca Alpha, Orca Predator), it is very important not to use a hook to hang the suit from behind.

2. In other models it is possible to use a coat hanger, as long as it is wide and the neoprene is not subjected to tension in the neck and shoulders.

3. To protect the SCS liner on the outside of the suit, it is recommended to add a small layer of talcum powder when storing it for long periods of time to better preserve the liner.

HOKA ONE ONE is official shoe of IRONMAN Europe and North America

hoka ironman partnership Ironman has announced a multi-year deal and extends its collaboration with the Hoka One One running shoes brand. Based on this renewed partnership, Hoka is the official running shoe for Ironman Europe and North America . In 2017 Hoka was the most used shoe by the Ironman World Championship finisher in Kona, Hawaii.

The partnership between Ironman and Hoka will add further content to the "Humans of Hoka" campaign that follows the journey in real life and the stories of triathletes and athletes of all levels, from the finisher of the first time, to those who are overcoming the challenges of life up to professionals committed to compete at the highest levels. The campaign consists of engaging content and videos distributed online and on social media. With the new agreement, 40 new stories will be released around the world that will talk about Ironman and Hoka throughout the year.

"We are thrilled to continue to expand our support to Ironman competitions and thus reach more and more triathletes, both established and beginners, in the world". Says Lee Cox, Hoka One One's global sales and marketing vice president . "Hoka is committed to telling authentic stories and the partnership with Ironman allows us to spread it more widely in Europe and North America. Those who participate in an Ironman face one of the most exhausting processes imaginable and has high demands on footwear. It is no coincidence, therefore, that our products are at the foot of an increasing number of triathletes every year ".

"All members of the Ironman family are delighted with the new partnership with Hoka One One," says Ironman CEO Matthieu Van Veen . "Being a partner of such a prestigious running brand demonstrates how we constantly strive to offer excellence to our athletes. This innovative collaboration is focused on producing creative content from the Ironman digital team. The Humans of Hoka series will highlight the incredible journey of the Ironman ".

The renewed partnership between Ironman and Hoka sees two great endurance and sports ambassador brands lined up, such as the new acquisition, the three-time world champion Ironman Mirinda "Rinny" Carfrae, the world champion Ironman Heather Jackson , the former triathlete included in the Ironman Julie Moss Hall Of Fame, and six-time Ironman world champion Dave Scott .

Hoka will be present at a selection of events Ironman and Ironman 70.3 which includes 40 races in North America and 32 in Europe , in addition to the cAMPIONS of the world of Ironman and Ironman 70.3 . Each Ironman race consists of 2.4 miles swimming, 112 miles on bikes and 26.2 miles of running. The Ironman 70.3 is articulated in 1.2 miles swimming, 56 miles by bike and 13.1 miles of racing.

ORCA openwater CORE HI-VIS wetsuit


The Openwater Core Hi Vis is the perfect wetsuit for swimmers who want to get started with open water safely. This wetsuit features high visibility, shoulder flexibility and a neutral buoyancy. High visibility panels on the arms and legs make you easily recognizable while swimming, even from a great distance. The high flexibility of the shoulders make your first open water workouts very comfortable, while thanks to the buoyancy it will make you feel safe.


YAMAMOTO 38
2.5mm Yamamoto 38 material is used in the torso and legs. In this area, there is less distortion than in the upper body. In these areas, elasticity is not given the same importance, so materials with more compression characteristics like this Yamamoto 38 can be used. This technology provides a good fit to the swimmer's body, preventing water from flowing between the suit and the skin.
YAMAMOTO 38
For greater flexibility in all phases of the stroke, Yamamoto 39 neoprene is used in conjunction with the high-end 2mm Infinityskin liner. This material has a high elasticity which allows it to be used in different areas of mid-range wetsuits. For fast, short-distance movements, such as those in the arms and especially in the elbow, this material requires 35% less strength than conventional neoprene. For long-distance movements, such as in the shoulders, it requires 45% less force than conventional neoprene

HIGH VISIBILITY'
To keep you as safe as possible in the water, this wetsuit has been designed with a high visibility orange that will make you visible to boats and other swimmers, so you can be located at any time.

MADE TO LAST
The unique design of this product is based on the best materials available in the market. Orca works closely with Yamamoto Corporation to develop new materials for their wetsuits. The exclusive materials Orca 0.88 Free and Yamamoto 44 are proof of this. Orca is also the only certified brand to make all of our suits using exclusive Yamamoto material, ensuring the highest quality in all products. Currently, the most sustainable raw material for obtaining neoprene is limestone, compared to other much more polluting processes in which lower quality neoprene is obtained from oil. The process for obtaining neoprene from limestone was developed in the 1960s by the Yamamoto company and has been perfected over time to arrive at the current process, where the best quality is obtained from neoprene. Not only the characteristics of this neoprene contribute to its best performance, but also ensure its maximum durability. Other very important materials in our products that can go unnoticed are the materials used for packaging. To minimize the impact of these, starting in 2020, our entire range of wetsuits and accessories uses recycled cardboard packaging instead of single-use plastics.


CARE OF THE WETSUIT TO LAST
Cleaning the wetsuit
Neoprene can be damaged by excess salt or other disinfectants such as chlorine when used in swimming pools. It is important to wash the suit with full water. You can use a small amount of neutral pH soap and then rinsed off. Once cleaned, make sure it dries so it doesn't retain moisture, outdoors or in a ventilated indoor space without direct exposure to sunlight as this can damage materials.
storage
Properly storing the wetsuit prevents materials and seams from being folded and stressed for long periods of time. It also prevents the appearance of wrinkles on the material that can affect both the wetsuit's durability and its aesthetics.
The best way to store the neoprene is to hang it in the center, so that the most sensitive areas like the shoulders and arms don't have any kind of tension on them. For this model you can use a hook if you cannot hang it halfway, as long as it is wide enough not to stretch the suit in the shoulder and neck area. Voyage
Although travel time requires such a small amount of the payoff of a life suit, it is important to keep in mind that every time it is worn, it must be carried. Poor carrying, even for short periods, can shorten the life of your suit. It is not recommended to compress or curl the suit during transport, especially in the seam areas. It is also recommended to rinse with fresh water before transporting it after it has been used. Be careful that the wetsuit is not stored in high temperatures (such as in a hot car), as this can accelerate its degradation. The elasticity of the upper part of this suit allows you to adapt the size in this area well to different bodies. However, the bottom sizing needs to be adjusted due to the thickness of the panels. So if the size guide suggests going up one size, plan on weight affecting sizing more on chest and height measurements

WHY CHOOSE THE DISC BRAKES FOR A ROAD BIKE?

scott-brake-to-disk-news-pic1 About 20 years ago there were discussions about disc brakes for mountain bikes. Nowadays, on the trail you can hardly see anything different than disc brakes.
Let's take a look at both systems to see their positive points and their shortcomings before giving us an opinion.

Braking power

Disc brakes offer substantially more braking power than traditional brakes. This allows the rider to apply less force to the lever to stop the bike. As a result, muscle fatigue in the hands is reduced, favoring better control and greater safety.

Modulation

Disc brakes offer significantly better modulation than conventional brakes, meaning that it is easier to measure how much to pull the lever and travel at the desired speed. With the disc brakes it is also less likely to lock the wheels because better modulation helps that limit of maximum braking power avoiding blockages.

Safety

Traditional brakes are a system that has big problems when wet, while disc brakes offer consistent performance in all conditions. Moreover, with the disc brakes the fear of a broken circle or of a puncture due to overheating of the rim in the long descents is something that belongs to the past. Without having the problem of having to accommodate the caliper, road bikes with disc brakes can now more easily use larger section tires and wider rims for better traction on more terrains. Recent studies have shown that the risk of injury to a cyclist using disc brakes is minimal.

Weight

Traditional brakes are even lighter than disc brakes. A frame kit for disc brakes is commonly 120g heavier than the equivalent frame kit with traditional brakes. Not necessarily the difference is as important as in the case of the new Foil Disc (45 g heavier than Foil with caliper brakes). In addition, a group with disc brakes weighs about 200-250 g more than one with traditional brakes in the same category.

scott-brake-to-disk-news-pic2 aerodynamics

Historically, bikes with disc brakes have been considered less aerodynamic than equivalent versions with traditional brakes. The bikes with newly launched disc brakes, including the Foil Disc, have shown that with a caliper integrated into the chassis design the disc brakes can have a slightly lower aerodynamic drag than the equivalent solution with conventional brakes. ± With a very negative angle the configuration with traditional brakes creates less aerodynamic drag

Maintenance

Both systems require periodic maintenance to ensure that their braking performance is optimal. Replacing brake pads is usually simpler and faster for disc brakes, as compared to conventional brakes they do not need to be realigned. However, the risk of rubbing the brake pads is more likely with disc brakes. The free space between the disc and the pads is minimal, so for bikes with disc brakes it is recommended to have a through-pin system to get around this problem.

Duration

The life of the wheels with disc brakes is generally longer than those with traditional brakes as the rims do not wear out due to friction and heat. A worn circle can be very dangerous if it breaks in speed. This can not happen with disc brakes because the rims are not used to brake.

Possible future improvements

The wheels will most likely change to accommodate disc brakes because the rims will no longer be an element of the braking system. As a result, tire rims can be designed to have better aerodynamic and lightweight performance, which will positively influence the acceleration of your bike. Road bikes will have larger wheels: 28-30 mm tires can be used easily on bikes with disc brakes, and offer exceptionally low rolling resistance, better grip and more comfort than 23 or 25 mm tires. Since the disc brakes are still quite new one can expect that there will still be some chance to design them much lighter.

Safety is the main advantage of disc brakes on road bikes. However, disc brakes do not only improve safety. Surely speed and performance can come from the aerodynamics, but it must be emphasized that an efficient braking also leads to an increase in speed. So it was no surprise to see Romain Kreuziger win the Ötztaler 5500, the professional race with most of the altitude meters on a bike with disc brakes (Addict RC disc).

We believe it is important to improve the safety of cyclists and this is possible with disc brakes without compromising the overall performance of the bike. Better brakes, better acceleration, aerodynamically improved wheels prevail over the minimum additional weight of disc brakes. scott disc brakes news

TOPO ATHLETIC: + 70% IN 2017

Stephen Matera 10-18-17 DSC1937-740x400 The running of Topo Athletic is all downhill. The American company founded in 2013 by Tony Post has in fact closed 2017 with a growth of 70% on 2016 and an increase of 20% in stores . But if the past year has been more than positive, the trend for the coming seasons is about an already announced success. The orders for the SS18 have reached + 100% compared to the previous season and the order collection for the FW18 / 19 starts in the same direction of growth. Online sales also contributed to this success , increasing by 50% compared to an increase in contacts of 10% (increase in consumer purchase references).

The company is preparing for a great 2019 with new projects , including the inclusion of three new models dedicated to trail running that will have the Vibram Megagrip sole and two new road models with numerous color variations. Topo Athletic aims to win back many awards in 2019 , as done earlier in 2016 (Best Runner's World debut with the Ultrafly model, best Trail Running shoe with MT2, best product with Hydroventure for the National Geographic Adventure, best training shoe with Halsa for Health) and prepare the real take-off in the American and international market , where to represent the brand there are already 100 ambassadors with leading exponents in different disciplines.

The stores that sell Topo shoes in the USA are currently 400 and are specialized running and outdoor stores . The giant REI in the outdoor has just started a partnership that involves the development of different products in collaboration with the brand. The Terraventure model in 2017 was one of the best sellers in the American chain . The target audience is very interesting because it is mainly a matter of millenials or a target called early adopters, a very eclectic consumer and ready to embrace the news without prejudice.

The natural running is also growing and is driven by wellness in general , which now includes many segments in clothing, training, food & drink, etc. In 2018 there are already collaborations with exceptional technical partners such as Event and Ortholite.

Running shoe ENDA LAPATET 1.5, made in Kenya

ENDA LAPATET 1.5
lapa1
The LAPATET 1.5 has in its name the DNA of its origins, in fact Lapatet in the dialects of
some Kenyan tribes means "RUN"
It is a versatile shoe that is well suited to both daily training, thanks to the level of
cushioning, which to the most performing race by virtue of its technical characteristics
who wink at a race with a predominantly midfoot attack; without
underestimate the comfort that is perceived immediately, at the first fit, thanks to the space
wide in the forefoot area and to the particular attention given to the area of the
heel.
So let's see, in detail, the characteristics of the E NDA LAPATET 1.5

The UPPER is made of light and soft knit, without seams (seamless) that allows
to the foot to lodge in the shoe without any constriction. The plot is managed with
waves with 2 different densities to offer adequate (denser wave) and perfect containment
flexibility (lower density wave) and crease lines that follow the movement of the foot
during all phases of the roll.
lapa2
Furthermore, the alternation of the density of the fabric waves allows a perfect coupling
with the socks and the upper itself reducing the risk of chafing affecting the skin of the
feet and the resulting performance while running.

The weave of the knit allows a high breathability and a dispersion of the heat produced
from the movement of the feet reducing the humidity that is deposited in the shoe.
To the upper are connected 2 collars for the passage of the laces, laces that pass through
holes made with the same yarn as the collars, thus eliminating rings of rigid materials
which are poorly adapted to the structure of the tongue ( TONGUE ) which turns out to be thin
and soft, reconciling the comfort of fit with the containment of the overall weight of the
shoe.
lapa3
The particular construction of the upper, in the rear area of the shoe, allows you to
obtain a soft and minimally invasive heel counter on the Achilles tendon e
on the heel which, however, allows to obtain a good control of the phases of first support
thanks to the work of the midsole and its particular structure in that portion of the
shoe.
lapa4
In the internal medial portion of the upper there is the ENDA logo, which represents the
tip of the spears typical of Kenyan peoples, as well as the reference to the flag of
Kenya with 2 straps placed to the right and left of the collar where the system ends
lacing.
lapa5
The midsole is developed with some tricks that allow a fluidity of the gesture
ideal in all situations. It is made with a central body in EVA that allows a
excellent dissipation of load forces in the medial area of the foot and is supplemented by two
inserts (one front and one rear) with slightly increased density to obtain
precisely a correct movement dynamics. The rear insert stabilizes the whole
rear foot and is in the lower portion of the midsole and works directly with the lightweight
heel collar to get the best balance between these 2 important components of the
footwear. The insert, higher in the back of the shoe, tapers towards the side
medial, obtaining in the second step a control of the longitudinal torsion of the shoe.
To optimize cushioning, a layer of midsole remains between this insert
the assembly midsole, the one that joins the upper to the inner part of the shoe.

In the midfoot area (height 24 mm) there is only one layer of EVA which instead doubles on the
tip, where the toes, in the take-off phase, give the final push. This
thin insert reducing the compression phase of the EVA softer, allows to contain
the dispersion of energy to the benefit of running performance.
lapa6

The sole is made of solid rubber with high abrasion resistance that fits both perfectly
to hard surfaces such as asphalt and to the easy dirt tracks of the dirt tracks. His
arrangement on the midsole and the design follows (front) those that are the lines of
natural crease of the feet. In the heel part, in the outer rear portion it is
slightly raised to protect the midsole and ensure greater durability.
lapa6
The removable insole, in light and shaped Eva, has the purpose of obtaining comfort and contributes
to the overall cushioning of the shoe. As mentioned at the beginning, the shape of the
shoe is traditional in the medial and back, while the front area, where
they house the fingers and the metatarsals is slightly wider than the standard at which it is
normally accustomed, this trick is essential to allow the fingers of the
feet to always find adequate space in the phases preceding the take-off, when the area
of the metatarsals tends, lowering, to widen to optimize the thrust phase. The waves
of the upper also serve to respond to the need to delicately bind that
portion of the foot.
iten2g
Finally, there is no lack of details related to Kenyan culture, and in addition to those already highlighted
in the upper (ENDA logo and National flag) there is a webbing in the back that
it serves to facilitate the fit that presents designs that recall typical designs of fabrics
Swahili. Even the waves of the upper have a Kenyan appeal, they represent
in fact the waves that are formed when a strong wind blows towards the land on the Indian ocean.
Another element closely linked to the Kenyan culture is the embossed HARAMBEE inscription
in the midsole. Harambee (Ha-rum-bay) is the official motto of Kenya, which in Swahili language,
means "let's all get together" and is used to refer to times when communities do
they combine to accomplish something that individuals could not do on their own.
Always in the lower part of the midsole, in the hollow that starts from the heel and reaches the
medial part there are micro grooves that represent the topographical map of the
Rift Walley.

Finally a note on the color charts where the variety of colors of the ENDA models and theirs
pairing takes up the characteristic colors of the plumage of some of the most common birds
of the highlands of Kenya.

HOKA ONE ONE and the shoes of the FLY collection: CAVU, ELEVON, MACH

HOKA 2018 FLY COLLECTION The new collection of HOKA ONE ONE spring-summer 2018 running shoes has finally arrived on the market (and also by MOTUS).
Also part of this collection are the three models of the new range of neutral shoes called FLY.
 
This HOKA FLY collection focuses on making highly cushioned yet lightweight running shoes.
But how? Thanks to the new PROFLY technology from Hoka One One! Dual density midsole: softer in the heel for a more cushioned landing, with a high density foam in the forefoot for greater propulsion. Using Hoka's terminology: "these shoes are ready to take off".
 
 
HOKA ONE ONE CAVU
The first neutral running shoe in this collection is called CAVU: the lightest and the lowest.
Hoka has made this shoe with only 188g for women and 231g for men. The difference between the heel and the toe is 4 mm (while the sister / brother shoes, the Elevon and the Mach, have a drop of 5 mm).
The price of Cavu is also the lowest in the series.
If you're looking for a low price, a lightweight shoe and responsive cushioning, Cavu could be your new year's shoe!
 
 
CAVU PICS
 
 
HOKA ONE ONE MACH
Even the Hoka One One Mach model is incredibly light, but with an additional technology. At just 190g for women and 231g again for men, in addition to a 5mm differential, these running shoes have a trend-setting aesthetic. The upper in breathable mesh differentiates the Mach dal Cavu notably for aesthetics.
And if you know the brand, Hoka One One Mach will remember the Clayton shoe, winner of the Editor's Choice Award at Runner's World Magazine in 2016.
And Mach, evolution of the previous Clayton, is no different: to but be driven quickly and is the new Clayton of Hoka.
Made with PROFLY technology in the midsole and with complete RMAT sole, it provides a light and soft contact with the ground and a reactive response, as well as some elements of greater stability compared to Cavu.
But then what are the differences of Mach compared to Cavu. The Mach shoe was designed with the Meta-Rocker of the first phase of Hoka for fluid control and transition. The Meta-Rocker supports a rider's natural gait and gives the rider a smooth transition from impact to thrust. This technology is designed to increase operating efficiency.
But not only that, Mach has an oversized active foot mold for maximum tuned stability. It allows your feet to lie deep in the midsole for a cradle-like foot fit, rather than just resting on the top of the midsole material.
 
MACH PICS
 
 
HOKA ONE ONE ELEVON
The third and last running shoe by Hoka One One in the FLY collection is Elevon.
You can already tell from the photos that the aesthetics of this shoe is perhaps the best of the series. It has a combination of an elegant mesh and a seamless upper with a variable tinge.
Hoka One One Elevon has the highest price in the series because it houses most of the Hoka technology.
It is heavier than Mach and Cavu, with weights of 297g for men and 245g. for women, but the drop is the same as the 5 mm Mach.
The technology comes from its predecessor Hoka: the model Vanquish 2. If you remember the Vanquish 2, it was a super cushioned and versatile shoe for the runner looking for an elastic and reactive race. With a double-layer midsole construction built with two EVA compounds, Vanquish 2 is designed to provide traditional HOKA ONE ONE Ultrasize cushioning.
Vanquish 2 also won the Editor's Choice Award from Competitor magazine in 2016.
Elevon also retains the cushioning of the double-layer midsole, with a combination of a super-lightweight midsole and a cushion that cradles the foot.
Hoka One One adds its suspension structure with a top layer of PROFLY and a lower injection frame designed with PROpulsion, PROtection and support. In addition, a TPU clip is present in the heel for greater support and stability.
 
ELEVON PICS
 
In conclusion: which model is better than the other?
 
Technically, yes, yes, and we're talking about running efficiency, but every shoe is designed for a specific consumer. Depending on the price, Hoka has developed shoes based on technology that could be added or removed.
The Elevon includes all of the above for a smooth transition, durable cushioning and responsive ride. Mach is a versatile intermediate solution ideal for everyday running, with a partial technology compared to Elevon, but with an award-winning design.
And Cavu, if you do not engage in long mileage, is the perfect shoe (marathon runners and high-mileage runners opt instead for the Elevon) .

Running shoe ENDA KOOBI FORA, made in Kenya

ENDA KOOBI FORA

KOOBI1
The name KOOBI FORA comes from an important archaeological site near Lake Turkana
north-west of the Kenyan country, where the most ancient fossils that belonged were found
to Homo Rudolfensis.

KOOBI FORA is a TRAIL RUNNING shoe ideal for medium distances (up to 40-50
km) and if used by performing runners it is also suitable for more demanding distances.
Like the rest of the ENDA collection, it is a neutral, light and comfortable shoe that he prefers
quick supports and an efficient run.

Here are the characteristics of the KOOBI FORA

The upper is in thin multilayer mesh, resistant and breathable but with a closed weave for
eliminate the entry of macro-dust and is coupled, both in the internal medial portion and
external, by 4 thin heat-sealed bands that, once the lacing is completed, allow the
upper to wrap the foot and make it one with the shoe. These heat-sealed inserts
in their external portion of the upper they also become laces-loops precisely for
generate a custom fitting.

KOOBI2

There is no traditional lace-up tongue (TONGUE ) which is replaced by a thin e
non-constricting sock in highly breathable perforated mesh that prevents little ones
pebbles and solid residues from entering the collar inside the shoe that integrates
perfectly with the heel collar.
KOOBI3
Contrary to what normally happens with similar solutions normally adopted,
the tension of the collar is delicate, especially in its front part, and does not affect the
speed of fitting of the shoe and on the sliding of the foot inside it.

The construction of the lacing system, as already mentioned, provides for large buttonholes
where the laces pass and integrates a trapezoidal flap that increases the protection of the back
of the foot by covering the special construction of the entrance sock in the body of the shoe.
This particular construction allows you to tension the lacing in an optimal way
creating a stable fit also thanks to the binding buttonhole for the laces and not constricting for the
peripheral circulation of the dorsum of the foot.
KOOBI4
To highlight the light TPU insert to protect the first metatarsal and all the fingers
that wraps the entire tip at 180 °, without being invasive for the fingers themselves during
dynamics of movement of the foot inside the shoe. This like in the other models
ENDA is possible thanks to an increased volume of that specific area of the
shoe.
KOOBI5
The heel counter is semi-rigid to stabilize the rear foot, which is useful for reducing
the torsional effect of the shoe during the support phases of the midfoot in order to
allow the Achilles tendon to work in line with the pushing forces. The collar is instead
soft thanks to the delicate sponges used inside. There is also a webbing
with ring to facilitate the fit, tape that in addition to having designs attributable to the
Kenyan culture printed the name ENDA.
KOOBI6
The midsole used is the same as on the ITEN but is integrated by a thin sheet
full-length nylon to change the stability and protection characteristics of the foot
in typical Trail running situations.

The midsole is in blown EVA, very balanced and with a low profile, in fact it has a
front - rear differential of 4 mm (Drop) that invites you to search for the best support
possible of midfoot. The fact remains that in the back, in the heel area, there is
an insert that increases the cushioning, protection and overall stability of the
footwear whose details we will see in a few lines.

KOOBI7

The front design of the midsole is therefore lowered compared to the standard of footwear
traditional and well suited to the increased volumes of the upper, where the toes of the
feet, to allow that natural enlargement of the metatarsal structure in the phase of
support and thrust even more important in off-road.

To reduce the torsional effect of the shoe, in addition to the aforementioned thin nylon insert, the part
rear of the midsole, in the heel area where there is the second layer of EVA (colored in
contrast) wraps the foot welcoming it with a slightly cupped shape to limit the
lateral movements of the foot, useful device in quick changes of direction as well as
for the aforementioned overall stability of the shoe.
KOOBI8

The sole is in solid rubber with high resistance and traction, and is in full contact with the
ground with the particularity of having flexion grooves just in front of the metatarsals
they generate 2 areas of different sizes, a smaller one positioned under the big toe and the other
greater for the remaining 4 fingers. This solution is closely related to the choice to have
a wider area for the support of the fingers so that in the pre-detachment and detachment phases
metatarsal joints are in a position to express maximum efficiency.
The sole which has a slightly increased thickness, when compared with the models
road, has a design that allows a good MUD RELISE (mud release) even if the
footwear is not born for particularly muddy soils but the particular design leaves
uncovered the lugs in the shape of a spear point to ensure optimal traction. The anchors do not
they are very deep to limit that unpleasant feeling of tessellation when running
on harder surfaces. From this point of view, also the horizontal recess placed at the medial level
it allows to dissect the more robust portion of the meso foot (the internal one) from the more
light (external) offering the latter a greater support surface.
On the toe of the shoe the sole rises towards the toe protection insert while maintaining it
same design and tessellation to guarantee traction even in situations where it is necessary
making the most extreme tip of the shoe work.
KOOBI9
Also not to be overlooked are the small rear recesses that work to not block
completely the torsional effect in that portion of the shoe. In the medial portion
inside, just above the word HARAMBEE the sole without the 3 small holes present on the
ITEN to increase the protection of the underlying midsole.
KOOBI10
The removable insole , in light and shaped EVA, aims to balance comfort and
contributes to the overall cushioning of the shoe in relation to the presence of the thin
kevlar sheet already mentioned. And as also mentioned in the beginning, the shape of the shoe is
traditional in the medial and posterior part, while the anterior area, where the fingers are lodged
and the metatarsals is slightly wider than the standard one is normally accustomed to,
this trick is essential to allow the toes to always find
adequate space in the phases preceding the detachment, when the metatarsal area tends,
lowering, widening to optimize the thrust phase and increase the feeling between the foot
and land.
KOOBI11
Also for the KOOBI FORA there is no lack of details related to the Kenyan culture, and in addition to the
mentioned tape to facilitate the fit, we find on the midsole is the word HARAMBEE.

grooves in the outer portion of the midsole are the reference to the date of 12 December,
Jamhuru Day, the day when Kenya gained independence in 1963 for a year thereafter
after exactly becoming a republic.
KOOBI12
Printed on the heel buttress we then find the symbol present in the center of the flag
Kenyana or the Masai shield with 2 crossed spears whose stylized tip is the logo of
ENDA.

The logo is present both on the upper and on the sole, as if to leave a trace of the
passage of Kenyan culture; on the laces passes the figure 1470 which recalls the
KNM-ER code 1470 which was the acronym that identified the remains of Homo Rudolfensis found
in the archaeological site of Koobi Fora.

Finally a note on the color charts where the variety of colors of the ENDA models and theirs

SCOTT Trail Running Shoe RC SUPERTRAC: review

IMG 9863 We begin immediately by seeing some numerical data of the Scott Supertrac RC shoe.
It is a trail running shoe weighing 9.6 oz (272 grams) in the US model in size US9, or weighing 8 ounces (230 grams) in the model woman in size US8. The heights of the SCOTT RC SUPERTRAC scraper midsole are 25mm heel / 20mm forefoot.
 
Now consider the top of the RC SUPERTRAC. The open mesh upper with seamless outer layers offers a minimal, yet safe and adequately protective feel, keeping the foot comfortably in place. You can pull the laces only moderately to achieve a great balance between safety and comfort.
The inner sole has a rubbery coating, presumably to minimize slipping of the foot inside the shoe.
 
Let's now analyze the midsole. midsole:
Aerofoam + is an injected midsole material that offers excellent flexibility, durability and rebound. The Supertrac RC is fast and responsive and offers a surprising balance between cushioning, protection and sensitivity to the trail. The cushioning is sufficient to allow even several hours of travel. Even though it is a fast shoe, SCOTT RC SUPERTRAC can also handle 2-3 hour runs. Although the shoe has a narrower support surface than other off-road shoe models, stability is excellent.

 
Excellent the sole of this SCOTT RC SUPERTRAC. When it comes to secure grip, the Supertrac RC Wet Traction Rubber sole is valid on almost any surface. The loops are deep, aggressive and "clinging". It takes a while to get used to it, learning to believe that the dowels will stick to any slope (no matter how steep) on soft, sandy, rocky, wet, muddy soils.
This crazy adherence, it must be admitted, does not allow the shoe to reach long distances without wearing out. This is inevitable when dealing with a shoe that attaches to the ground like a glue!
 
An excellent shoe on difficult terrain, where great adherence and safety are needed. SCOTT RC is very suitable in the race on difficult routes when you want to make the most of the time.

ENDA ITEN 2 Running Shoe, made in Kenya

ENDA ITEN 2

iten2a
ITEN has its vocation in its name. Iten, is a small Kenyan town located in the Great Rift
Valley which produced the highest number of gold medals in the cross-country and medium-sized specialties
bottom in competitions that really matter in running such as Olympics and World Championships, and it is also
known as the home of champions.

It is a shoe with a vocation for performance that accompanies runners on medium distances a
good pace without forgetting protection and cushioning if you want to push yourself further,
inviting to the midfoot support for a run that is as natural and efficient as possible.
Here are the characteristics of the ITEN 2

The upper is in engineered mesh (triple yarn) with a tight weave to better contain the foot in
all stages of support and is structured with a second layer to wrap the entire area of the fingers
of the feet to eliminate the problem of mesh failure in that area subjected to stress
high when the ride is particularly fast. In the internal portion at the level of the first
metatarsal coupling is interrupted in order not to limit in any way the flexion of the midsole
during the push and pre-release phase of the foot from the ground.

The texture, as mentioned, tightly knit in the forefoot portion does not lose its naturals
characteristics of breathability, in the portion that wraps the body of the foot and integrates
with the lace-through structure, the shirt opens with decidedly wider inserts that concur to
increase internal ventilation.

iten2b

The lacing system is integrated into the upper and follows a light one in the medial part
undulation to allow a correct adaptation to the shape of the foot. The lace loops
they are obtained with buttonholes that allow you to do without plastic eyelets at all
advantage of wearability and reduction of plastic waste at the end of the shoe's life.
The tongue for laces ( TONGUE ) is sized with limited thickness in order to wrap the back
of the foot respecting the general comfort of the shoe. However, it has the particularity of being, in the part
terminal towards the instep, asymmetrical so as to better protect that portion of the neck of the
foot (external) where the soft tissues are most exposed to movement and compression stress
of the lacing itself.
iten2c
The heel counter is semi-rigid to stabilize the rear foot, which is useful for reducing the effect
torsional of the shoe during the support phases of the midfoot in order to allow the work of the
Achilles tendon in line with the pushing forces. The collar is instead soft thanks to the delicate

sponges used inside. There is also a webbing with a ring to facilitate the fit,
ribbon that in addition to having designs attributable to the Kenyan culture has embroidered the name ENDA nearby
to the figure 2%. This 2% identifies what ENDA reinvests from its profits in support of
development in Kenyan communities.
iten2d
The midsole is in blown EVA, very balanced and with a low profile, in fact it has a differential
antero - posterior of 4 mm (Drop) which invites the search for the best possible support of
midfoot. This does not mean that in the back, in the heel area, there is an insert that
increase the protection and overall stability of the shoe, the details of which we will see in a few
line.

The front design of the midsole is therefore lowered compared to the standard of traditional footwear
and is well suited to the increased volumes of the upper, where the toes are housed, to allow
that natural enlargement of the metatarsal structure in the support and thrust phase. The part
front is particularly flexible while maintaining an excellent balance between elastic return and
cushioning. This situation allows the entire skeletal muscle complex to work
tendon of the foot and ankle to achieve maximum efficiency. To guarantee efficiency, the
rear part of the midsole, in the heel area where there is the second layer of EVA (colored in
contrast) wraps the foot welcoming it with a slightly cupped shape to limit the
lateral movements of the foot, useful device in quick changes of direction as well as for the
overall stability of the shoe.

This solution is not necessarily the optimal solution for all runners, especially those more
slow and heavy that tend to have rear foot support, but this is a performance shoe
which can, for the runners just mentioned, be the second shoe for fast races or training
specific. In addition, the particular geometry and density of the midsole is well suited to fast walkers,
category constantly increasing among consumers.
iten2e
The sole is in solid rubber with high resistance and traction, and is in full contact with the ground with the
particularity of having flexion grooves just in front of the metatarsals that generate 2 areas of
different sizes, one smaller positioned under the big toe and the other larger for the remaining 4 toes.
This solution is closely related to the choice of having a wider area for the support of the fingers
so that in the pre-detachment and detachment phases the metatarsal joints are in the condition of
express maximum efficiency. From this point of view, also the horizontal recess placed level
medial allows to dissect the more robust portion of the meso foot (the internal one) from the more
light (external) offering the latter a greater support surface.

iten2f

The removable insole , in light and shaped Eva, has the purpose of obtaining comfort and contributes
to the overall cushioning of the shoe. As mentioned at the beginning, the shape of the shoe is
traditional in the medial and posterior part, while the anterior area, where the fingers and i
metatarsi, as mentioned, is slightly wider than the standard one is normally used to,
this precaution is essential to allow the toes to always find adequate
space in the phases preceding the detachment, when the metatarsal area tends, lowering, ad
widen to optimize the thrust phase.

iten2g

Also for the ITEN there is no lack of details related to Kenyan culture , and in addition to the aforementioned ribbon
to facilitate the fit, we find on the midsole is the word HARAMBEE. Harambee (Ha-rum-bay) is the
Kenya's official motto, which in the Swahili language, means "let's all get together" and is used for
refer to times when communities come together to accomplish something that individuals do not
they could do it on their own. The detail of the 12 grooves in the outer portion of the midsole are the
reference to the date of December 12, Jamhuru Day, the day in which Kenya obtained in 1963
independence and then exactly one year later to become a republic.

The logo, which represents the tip of a spear, is then present both on the upper and on the sole almost a
wanting to leave a trace of the passage of Kenyan culture.

pairing takes up the characteristic colors of the plumage of some of the most common birds of the
highlands of Kenya.

ENDA Running Shoes made in Kenya

Sale of running and running shoes made in Kenya, Africa: ITEN, LAPATET, KOOBI FORA models
Sale of running and running shoes made in Kenya, Africa: ITEN, LAPATET, KOOBI FORA models

In the world of sports shoes intended for running and walking, a new brand appears with a very different story from that typical of large multinational sports companies. It is ENDA (in Swahili dialect it means Go) the first African brand that proudly claims its made in Kenya.
ENDA, was born less than 5 years ago through a crowdfundind (self-financing) and from the idea of 2 boys, the young lawyer Kenyana Navalayo Osembo and the American Weldon Kennedy with experiences in associations involved in the social sector including Change.Org

At the base of the project there was immediately the desire to create a sports shoe where the strongest long-distance runners are born but with the immediate aim of doing so through a path linked to social and environmental sustainability with unique choices.

CREATING JOBS IN KENIA - In a country with an average age of only 18, and a youth unemployment rate of 17%, both the Kenyan government and leading development experts felt that creating jobs in sectors such as manufacturing was one of the Kenya's top priorities. Part of the challenge, however, is that it is almost always cheaper (as well as easier) to produce in Southeast Asia. The strategy, then, was to overcome this obstacle by creating a brand that could leverage the added value of being made in Kenya, also being able to count on preferential tariffs for the importation of footwear and clothing into the United States, established by the treaty. "African Growth and Opportunity Act".

SUPPORTING THE LOCAL COMMUNITY - Many Kenyans still do not even have access to essential things, such as clean water, sanitation, medical care, as well as education. Fortunately, many determined and courageous people are working hard to overcome these limits, and ENDA also wants to contribute, donating a portion of its profits for this purpose. With the help of a pool of experts, projects to be financed are selected every 6 months, a choice to which every ENDA buyer can also contribute, thus creating an important link between the company, runners and walkers from all over the world, and the local Kenyan community; this also to foster empathy, creativity and innovation. To support this, a percentage of the purchase price is immediately used to support various social activities directly in Kenya and for these reasons ENDA is the only brand in the world, of technical footwear, to have obtained the international certification "B Corp ", for the social imprint of the project.

Then there is the ecological spirit with the reduction of the environmental impact, where ENDA, with its choices and its production, immediately creates the first technical running shoes with the aim of achieving zero impact as recognized by the international certification. "Climate Neutral". There are many production processes put in place to achieve this goal, including the choice of reducing the production of packaging through the choice not to use cardboard packaging to contain the shoes but to deliver them to the recipients in shoe bags made of recycled fabric too. made in Kenya.

Finally there are the shoes, 3 models, which will begin to be distributed in Italy from June 2021 through specialized running and walking stores throughout the country, models intended for running and walking and which will offer in addition to a standard and high durability also the their story. The most interesting model for advanced walkers or fast runners is the ITEN , the first model ever produced that takes its name from the famous Kenyan city nicknamed the city of champions.

Then there is the LAPATET , a very comfortable more protective model ideal for medium and long distances to which the KOOBI FORA ideal for off-road activities has been added.

3T CYCLING: AERODYNAMIC IS THE KEY IN TESTS AGAINST TIME

aero test 3t Aerodynamics is the key to getting better times in races against time: crusher and triathlon.
The air resistance slows down. The faster you are, the more you slow down the air resistance: the aerodynamic advantage allows you to win the races.
This awareness struck cycling as a lightning strike in 1989, when Greg LeMond, riding on a first aerodynamic configuration, won the Champs-Elysées final stopwatch to snatch the final win at Laurent Fignon at the Tour de France.
Since then, all the components of racing bikes have adapted to this reality. The same applies to the UCI rules, repeatedly revised to ensure that no runner takes an unfair advantage from aerodynamic components.
3T has worked for a long time on this frontier between technical progress and fair play, testing the boundary between what is possible and what is permissible. Four years before LeMond's definitive tour victory, 3T built the bullhorn bar that Francesco Moser used during the world record of bike time. It was the fundamental project for every TT handlebar that followed since.
Fast forward to 2008: 3T builds Ventus, the most radical and aerodynamic aerobic ever. The winner of the Tour de France Carlos Sastre uses it, including Fabian Cancellara and Gustav Larsson, gold and silver at the Beijing Olympics.
Like other component builders, 3T tests the aerodynamic performance of its new product designs theoretically, using computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and empirically, in the wind tunnel.
The mix of creative creativity and attentive and methodical wind tunnel development has helped a lot of 3T cycling when he started embarking on his biggest challenge of the product of the modern era: build wheels. Using a heavy-duty CFD system, 3T has developed a new hoop profile whose resistance numbers fit best, while delivering other significant benefits.
The tests carried out at the Mercedes Petronas wind tunnel showed, as expected, that 3T Mercury and 3T Orbis have a constant and low aerodynamic resistance at all corners of the yaw, making them unconditionally stable in turbulent air travel in the world real. The same design advantages now extend to the 3T Accelero wheelbase range.
The 3T aerodynamic study program continues for all the new relevant products, usually in the Pinfina Gronache (TO) wind tunnel.
