SL 72 & 76 reborn for the ultimate in cushioned traction
More Traction Special profile ejects grit and mud. Profile layout allows more flexing and therefore better traction. New heel profile for more cushioned heel strike.
Thicker, softer, grooved wedge for substantially increased overall cushioning.
More propulsion. Extended sole area gradually stores up touch-down energy. At lift-off this energy is released producing 20% more propulsion per step.
More stability & cushioning. Wider,flared heel for greater stability.
