The Chinese giant in sportswear ANTA Sport has developed together with Teknor Apex Company, leader in the production of personalised plastic material compounds, a material for the midsole with a high rebound resilience, which will be applied to a new line of running shoes. The midsole incorporates Monprene® TPE and has successfully passed 40,000 running impact tests, identifying the optimum solution that delivered the best rebound performance over extended periods of time. Thanks to this, the energy returned to the runner with the impact of each of the runner’s strides arrives at 70% rebound instead of the 50% rebound of the running shoes currently available on the market. This reserved energy is transformed into running power, enabling the runner to go for longer distances.
The focus on the resilience of the midsole, and not just on its cushioning property, makes all the difference, guaranteeing greater elasticity with each stride of the running shoe, as well as greater comfort in ANTA leisure shoes.
