Let's start with the most important; the sole. The midsole is made up of three parts. Two layers of highly competitive foam and one carbon plate. The foam is PEBA based (Polyether block amide) and comes in two different softnesses. The composition closest to the foot and above the carbon plate is soft and gentle, while the foam under the plate against the substrate is somewhat firmer. Together with a curved carbon plate, this provides a unique combination of gentleness, response and damping. It curved plate helps stabilize, create energy and the opportunity to utilize the rocker in the shoes in the best possible way. The shoe is well rounded in the forefoot, which gives fantastic flow through the step.
The outsole has good with wear rubber and with proper use on good surfaces will withstand many kilometers at high speed! The outer sole rubber is strategically placed to keep the shoes low in weight.
The upper part is a thin and technical synthetic mesh that has good breathing abilities. It has a racing fit that fits well around the foot and provides a secure foothold that keeps things in place when the speed is increased.
The Rocket X 2 is specifically made for longer street races such as half marathons and marathons, but it is also very well suited for shorter distances on the road. This speed phantom of a shoe is simply firing on all cylinders and is race ready down to the smallest detail. So then the question is; are you ready to take off?
