An outsole that promotes natural movements

CRTek is made from a durable rubber compound that’s highly resistant to abrasion. It shields sections of the sole unit from the potentially damaging nature of the asphalt. It also provides reliable surface traction.

Flex notches in the outsole allow the foot to move naturally through the gait cycle. They make the platform more flexible and agreeable to the foot’s movements.

Smooth transitions with the ZPump Fusion 2.5's midsole

Carbonated foam is the midsole unit of the Reebok ZPump Fusion 2.5. It carries the foot well, cushioning it as it goes through the gait cycle. It’s flexible, lightweight and responsive, too. Several nodes in the bottom section act as pistons that deliver structured cushioning whenever it’s needed.

A reinforced midfoot tuck board supports the arch of the foot and adds torsional rigidity, which essentially makes each heel-to-toe transition much easier and smoother.

A molded PU sock liner actually adds a bit more responsive cushioning to the underfoot. It’s lightweight and flexible.

Seamless upper construction for maximum comfort

The upper unit of the Reebok ZPump Fusion 2.5 makes use of a seamless design. It doesn’t use any thick layers or unnecessary stitching, which is actually very helpful in terms of preventing skin irritation or the onset of blisters. It’s breathable, as well.

The Pump technology is made from an inflatable material. It covers the medial, lateral and rear sections of the upper. A button in the lateral side causes air to enter the inflatable material and make the coverage more agreeable to the preferences of the wearer.

The Powerframe is a sturdy, yet elastic cage that supports the upper fabrics and the Pump tech. It reinforces the cover system and keeps the foot in place.
