Updates to Adidas Terrex Agravic XT

  • The Adidas Terrex Agravic XT is designed to be the most cushioned option in the Terrex line of trail running shoes. It makes use of a two-layer cushioning system that involves an ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) topsole and a Boost™ base that covers ¾ of the platform.
  • Breathable coverage is the responsibility of the open mesh upper. This material is also meant to stave off trail debris via its multilayered construction. Welded overlays with stitched reinforcements help in providing a snug and secure fit.
  • A car-tire rubber from the Continental™ brand is used for the outsole unit of the Terrex Agravic XT. This component shields the entire midsole from wear-and-tear.

Adidas Terrex Agravic XT size and fit

The Adidas Terrex Agravic XT was designed to be true-to-size. Runners can get a pair with their usual sizing preferences in mind. When it comes to width, the available options are D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women. The semi-curved shape of this running shoe mimics the natural curve of the human foot.

Outsole

The outsole unit of the Adidas Terrex Agravic XT features a full-length Continental™ rubber layer. This material is tasked with shielding the rest of the platform from the abrasive nature of the trails. It is also graced with an adhesive quality to allow surface control.

Aggressive, multi-directional traction nodes pockmark the surface of the external pad. These protrusions are meant to heighten the grip over the irregular topography.

Midsole

Immediate underfoot cushioning is the responsibility of the EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) topsole. This compound runs the entire length of the Adidas Terrex Agravic XT, giving support to all areas of the underfoot.

Same as that in the popular Adidas Ultra Boost 19, the Boost™ cushioning layer is found at the base of the Terrex Agravic XT 's platform, comprising ¾ of the entire piece. It is made out of amalgamated TPU pellets. Its job is to attenuate impact shock during the landing phase then energize the toe-off.

Upper

Open mesh serves as the upper unit of the Adidas Terrex Agravic XT. This textile offers breathable support, but it doesn’t allow trail debris to enter the interior chamber because it has a multilayered design that minimizes the size of the breathing holes.

Printed and welded overlays are fashioned all over the façade. These add-ons are constructed to preserve the structural integrity of the upper and to hold the foot in place. The midfoot and heel sections have stitched reinforcements to enhance the lifespan of the synthetic prints.

A bootie construction makes the in-shoe experience as smooth as possible for the runner. The traditionally separate tongue unit is not present in this model; instead, a one-piece opening accommodates the shape of the foot, hugging it and keeping it from hot spots.

A pull tab at the heel is meant to help the runner when it comes to putting on and removing the Adidas Terrex Agravic XT.
