4:SYS

4:SYS

  • Dynamic motion control for your feet
  • The 4:SYS midsole increases the time from heel contact to shot by .008 seconds or 33%
  • This controlled decelleration leads to an average reduction of force of 195.6 N or 35%
  • Therefore 4:SYS reduces the transfer of energy from heel strike to when the shot is played
  • Loading rates are a key predictor to injury potential

  • Impact Zone

    Impact Zone

  • Cushioning where you really need it
  • Up to 38% more effective shock absorption
  • Equivalent to 20-25 time your body weight, or one third better than any other shoe available

  • Ion Mask

    Ion Mask

    A revolutionary process creates a microscopic water resistent surface of the shoe. The technology allows for the material to repel water, while at the same time staying breathable.

    Peak Force

    Peak Force

  • Maximum grip at the moment you play the shot
  • Increased surface contact mean Hi-Tec shoes
  • 6 times better grip
  • Better stability
  • Improved pressure and force distribution

  • Cushioning Foam

    Cushioning Foam

    Heel cushioning foam - C35, positioned at the heel centre, gives you 70% better shock absorption than a regular EVA midsole compound.

    ErgoHeelCup

    ErgoHeelCup

    To stabilize and fixate the heel,which is key to providing a great fit and comfort, we have developed a new anatomical Ergo Heel Cup that is slightly longer than the average heel cup.

    Available Shoes

    Exo Skeleton

    Exo Skeleton

    The exo skeleton design stabilizes the foot for lateral movements and reduces pressure at the MTP joints (Metatarsophalangeal joints). It is important to keep the foot stable medio-lateral, avoiding friction and side forces in the soft parts of the foot sole, especially underneath the forefoot.

    Available Shoes

    LMS

    LMS

    Lateral Movement Stabilizer - a specially designed, lightweight, integrated dual torsion unit that supports the foot during fast and irregular lateral movements.

    Available Shoes

    LMS+

    LMS+

    Fast lateral stops expose the foot to the risk to roll over outwards, causing injuries. LMS+ (Lateral Movement Stabilizer Plus) is a unique design with a positive angle of 5¡ that prevents the foot from rolling over outwards.

    Available Shoes

    Rebound Foam

    Rebound Foam

    Forefoot rebound energy foam - RE35. 80% better rebound energy than a regular EVA midsole compound.

    Available Shoes

    RollBar

    RollBar

    An increased radius on the inner side of the outer sole, facilitates rolling the foot inwards and toe pushoff.

    Available Shoes

    SpeedLite

    SpeedLite

    The SpeedLiteª midsole is a lightweight performance EVA compound with long lasting cushioning qualities.

    Available Shoes

    T.G.S. 62|75

    T.G.S. 62|75

    Torsion Guide System - The distance from heel to the ball of the foot (62% of the shoe) has been designed with extra stability, which ends in the so-called "ballet" line, a 75¡ angle. In front of the 75¡ line, we have equipped the shoe with greater flexibility to stimulate the foot's natural movements. TGS 62/75 takes all of the gait cycle criteria into consideration. At the same time, it softens the strains caused by friction during lateral movements. The shoe bends in exactly the right places, stimulating the foot's natural lateral and forward movements.
