The basic ingredients for a sole that will not slip are the profile and the rubber compound. Thanks to the new CONTINENTAL® rubber compound the TRAXION® sole of the terrex™ fast r guarantees excellent traction and anti-slip properties here, too.
In order to find the perfect composition of the rubber compound, the developers at CONTINENTAL® and adidas carried out months of tests and comparisons in the laboratory. For the sole of the terrex™ Fast R the CONTINENTAL® engineers selected a rubbercompound inspired by the Black Chili rubber compound which has proved its worth among MTB riders.
Only the combination of CONTINENTAL® rubber compounds and the innovative sole design makes outdoor athletes faster and safer in the mountains. A comparison with similar models available on the market shows that the CONTINENTAL® rubber compound offers up to 30% more grip on dry and wet surfaces.
Robust and yet soft and light. That's what the Terrex Fast Jacket offers with a new WINDSTOPPER® Soft Shell that is available exclusively in the adidas terrex™ collection. It keeps out the wind and drizzle, is breathable and can be used all year round as an intermediate layer or shell.
Thanks to excellent freedom of movement mountaineers and climbers do not feel restricted in any way to deliver top performance on mountain and on rock face. An ultralight hood made of windproof and water-resistant climaproof® wind material that can be folded away into the collar provides an extra level of protection.
