Vibram Faster is a multilayer sole that contains a very elastic, dynamic profile that has been moved forward to guarantee high-level performance. Faster is suitable for a variety of sport that require thrust, stability and support.
Layer 1: the dual density rubber tread.
Thanks to the exclusive Vibram 2CM (Two Color Molding) technology we were able to combine different colors and types of rubber . The black compound has great grip and presents high resistance for maximum thrust, while the lighter, gray compound guarantees a high level of sensitivity. The sole’s grip is optimized by microinserts that secure themselves to the ground.
Layer 2: the semi rigid TPU insert.
The risk of torsion is reduced thanks to the support supplied by a semi rigid insert which controls lateral stability. Even in the most extreme situations, the foot does not bend and stays in position for its next step.
Layer 3: the EVA dual density wedge.
The upper part includes EVA thermo form to assure a perfect bond with the shoe upper. The dual density EVA is extremely light and presents a high degree of shock absorption during jumping and fast downhill motion. Moreover, it bends the shoe shaping forward, facilitating dynamic movement while running.
