Say "hello" to the Men's Adidas Terrex Agravic Speed Ultra
The story told by Adidas was 2023 Western States winner Tom Evans wanted the trail running equivalent of the Adidas Boston. So, Adidas took the famous Lightstrike Pro midsole and combined it with TPU Energy Rods. This created a highly responsive race day trail shoe that remains nimble on variable terrain. Unlike carbon plates the 4 TPU Energy Rods act as an extension of our metatarsal bones allowing for a large range of toe-off directions without sacrificing energy return and stablity.

Continental™ Rubber Outsole

Adidas added the famous Continental™ Rubber made famous on Tour De France road bikes and F1 racing cars to their Men's Adidas Terrex Agravic Speed Ultra. The lugs have an ingenious design with deeper 3mm lugs on the outer rim of the shoe and shallower lugs on the inside of the outsole. This allows runners to maintain grip on cambered and variable terrain while not encumbering speed and responsiveness on flat/smoother surfaces.

Energy Rods

Unlike other major trail running brands Adidas opted to utilize a rod system as opposed to a plate system in their high end racing/training shoes. The rods act as an extension of the metatarsal bones allowing for increased foot dexterity over variable terrain trail conditions. Adidas choose TPU rods for their high levels of durability, flexibility and tensile strength. Compared to carbon plated trail runners the TPU allows for greater control during the foot-strike and toe off without sacrificing speed.

Lightstrike Pro Midsole

The highest quality foam in the Adidas Running lineup. The Lightstrike Pro Midsole is composed of TPEE (Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomer). What does that mean? In simple terms TPEE foam is composed of an alignment of hard and soft compounds. This makes the foam highly responsive and durable. When combined with Energy Rods the Men's Adidas Terrex Agravic Speed Ultra becomes an extremely fast, nimble and durable race day 100 mile trail runner.
