Delivers reliable surface traction

Blown rubber is placed on the surface of the external sole unit. It protects the foam platform from the abrasive nature of the asphalt. It also gives reliable surface traction, which helps in keeping each step as tight and precise as possible.

This rubber material is also flexible, so it allows the natural movement of the foot to take place. This outsole material is also used in the SpeedForm Slingshot 2.

SpeedForm Slingride offers flexibility and cushioning

Flex grooves are placed anatomically, giving flexibility in the forefoot area. The foot is afforded the freedom to move naturally as it steps on the ground and as it lifts off of it.

Under Armour SpeedForm Slingride flexibility and cushioning

Charged Foam is a high quality material that cushions the foot well. Part of its purpose is to absorb impact shock during the landing phase of the gait cycle, thus shielding the underfoot from any discomfort.

Under Armour’s Micro G is a very responsive foam unit

Micro G is a very responsive foam unit. It cushions the foot well as it strikes the ground. It also enables the runner to achieve a more efficient toe-off because of its springy nature.

It doesn’t easily break down or lose structural integrity, making it as efficient as when it was first used.

SpeedForm Slingride provides seamless coverage

Seamless coverage is afforded to the runner via the UA SpeedForm technology. Runners can enjoy the Under Armour SpeedForm Slingride without worrying about skin irritation or blisters.

The Dyneema fabric is used in this shoe. It’s a world-class material that’s advertised as the strongest. It doesn’t easily tear apart, but it doesn’t make the cover system feel stiff or unwieldy.

A Seamless Zonal Compression unit in the mid-foot area locks the foot in place. It makes the heel-to-toe transitions faster and more efficient.

A Molded Seamless Heel Cup secures the heel and prevents it from wobbling in place. It also prevents accidental shoe-removals.
