Good to know

  • Adidas Terrex Agravic Speed uses ripstop fabric in its upper – a material which is breathable and not-easy-to-rip by its nature. The fabric is usually thin and made from nylon which allows air to enter the trail shoe keeping the runner's feet healthy, cool and dry.
  • The EVA foam has been deployed in the midsole which is responsible for the enhancement of cushioning elements. Also, it is water resistant and a non-irritant material like carbon rubber. This technique together with the collar and the tongue of the shoe provides support and comfort during a run.
  • The outsole of Terrex Agravic Speed is made of Continental™ rubber. It is an extremely lightweight carbon material, which provides a firm grip on the ground to avoid the slip and lowers the chances of injury while running.

Adidas Terrex Agravic Speed gives you a snug fit and remains true to size. It is available in both B and D for men and women respectively.

Continental rubber has been used in the Terrex Agravic Speed’s outsole which offers grip in both wet and dry conditions. The outsole has small trapezoidal shaped nodes attached to it, to prevent the slip and the unnecessary pressure.

Also, there are cutouts on the outsole to reduce the impact of weight during a run. Adidas follows the technique used in tires. The rubber used to design the outsole of the running shoe is resilient and is reliable in any situation. This rubber is very light and responsive, which provides a lively feeling when the foot hits the ground. As a result, the runners enjoy the ride without any worries.

Same as with the popular Adidas Duramo 9, the midsole of Agravic Terrex Speed utilizes EVA technology, which is responsible for the enhancement of cushioning of the shoe. This technology is made from extremely flexible and environment-friendly material that delivers a plush and supportive feeling during a ride. It is beneficial in reducing pressure on the foot on any ground level. This saves a runner from unnecessary exhaustion, no matter what the distance and pace.

Another technology used in the midsole is called 'molded foam insole'. It is a foam which prevents unnecessary flexing of the foot while running.

Adidas Terrex Agravic Speed utilizes Ripstop technology in its upper. This technique works together with the perforated collar and tongue to deliver breathability. It provides an optimal fit with a non-irritant feel to the runners.

The Ripstop technology uses a thin fabric made from nylon which is not only light but also durable. As a result, the runners stay secure during the run.

The cleaty-esque construction of the shoe keeps the foot in its place. It wraps the foot gently to provide a comfortable and responsive ride. The traditional lace-up closure adjusts the fit responsibly.
