Profile of the Adidas Adizero Prime Finesse

Use – Packed with the most featherlight yet sturdy components, the Adidas Adizero Prime Finesse is great for running meets such as sprints and hurdles. It yields optimal performance in races that range from 60 meters to 200 meters. 

Spike Type – The spike plate of the track running spike houses 6 ⅜-inch Christmas tree spikes. These are nanoceramic pins that are 66 percent lighter than the traditional steel spikes. Aside from adhering to the shoe's ultra-light design, these are also responsible for its aggressive traction. 

Spike Plate – Touted as the thinnest sprint plate available, the running spike is graced with the Nano Plate. The same outsole component is found in the Adidas Adizero Prime SP. It equips the shoe with stability and maximum efficiency.
