Updates to Dynafit Trailbreaker GTX

  • The Dynafit Trailbreaker GTX is a running shoe that’s designed for those who have neutral pronation. It is also optimized for the trails. It makes use of a vibrant façade, with color schemes that pop. Air mesh serves as the external section of the upper, but the interior features the waterproof Gore-Tex®.
  • An EVA foam serves as the cushioning unit of this off-road apparel. It is responsible for attenuating the impact forces generated by the foot-strike. A POMOCA® outsole construction ensures traction and smooth steps on the various terrains.

Dynafit Trailbreaker GTX size and fit

The Dynafit Trailbreaker GTX was designed to be true to size. Runners can get their usual choices when it comes to size. The width profiles are B – Medium for women and D – Medium for men. It accommodates those whose foot-dimensions aren’t too wide.

Outsole

POMOCA® is a company that specializes in technologies that help hikers, trail runners and mountaineers. The Trailbreaker GTX features the POMOCA® Grip and Gliding Path, systems that work together to provide surface traction and smooth steps.

Triple-sided gripping lugs surround the perimeter of the external platform. These protrusions heighten traction on level or uneven ground.

Midsole

Ethylene vinyl acetate of EVA is a compound that acts as the impact mitigating system of the Trailbreaker GTX. It carries the foot throughout the running session and disperses the force during the landing phase.

An Ortholite™ footbed offers additional cushioning for the underfoot. It has antimicrobial and anti-moisture properties to prevent odor and retention of sweat. It also contours to the curved of the foot-pad, thus giving support to the sections that don’t usually get attention.

Upper

The Alpine Air Mesh is a net-like exterior that accommodates airflow. It ushers air into the foot-chamber, thus giving a ventilated running experience.

The Adaptive Grid is made up of printed overlays that bolster the façade of the Dynafit Trailbreaker GTX. Part of this system of synthetic layers serves as the anchor for the lacing system, adapting in conjunction with the tightening or loosening of the fit.

A Gore-Tex® membrane makes sure to stave off water infiltration entirely. Moreover, this inner layer doesn’t sacrifice the breathability of the upper unit.

The tongue and collar are padded. The purpose of this design is to keep the foot comfortable, steady and away from any accidental shoe removals.

Tongue deviation is averted by an integrated strap through which the laces crisscross.
