Adidas have completely revitalised the Avanti in this new iteration, combining the cushioning and comfort of the Adizero Cadence with the dynamic responsiveness that the Avanti has always been famed for. You can, however, be assured that there have been no compromises made in this illustrious amalgamation of these two middle and long distance performance spikes.
A full length Pebax plate on the outsole provides a rigid and sturdy platform throughout the mid and forefoot of the shoe, supporting middle distance athletes up on their toes and facilitating efficient power transfer at pace. 5,000m+ athletes can calm those alarm bells as the tactically placed flex grooves in the forefoot and tapering of the plate through the midfoot into the heel ensures a comfortable and uniform flex, reducing foot fatigue and strain in those longer races while reducing overall weight. The strategic 4 pin spike placement in the forefoot delivers incredible traction whilst further reducing the weight of this already featherweight outsole.
The obvious and, arguably, most significant update in this model is the inclusion of Adidas’ revolutionary boostTM technology throughout the midsole. Constructed from compressed TPU capsules it provides ~10% greater energy return than standard EVA. The soft, plush but ultra-responsive feel of boostTM, which has graced the adizero road racing line-up for a while now, is long overdue and a welcome inclusion in their performance track & field footwear.
The upper is made from featherweight soft-touch synthetic microfiber sprint web mesh, with open weave areas to promote ventilation and tighter weave in areas where support and structure is required, predominantly over the midfoot and heel. The coolever lining inside the spikes utilises a clover-shaped yarn to give optimum comfort and, combined with the perforated insole, allows maximum breathability and water drainage for those athletes competing in the steeplechase.
Not one to be missed, the 2016 Adidas Adizero Avanti Boost Spikes are the ideal choice for distance aficionados out there looking for an elite level spike that’ll have you running fast and feeling great! Available in our 2016 Spring Summer track and field line-up.
