- The Under Armour Clutchfit Force 3.0 Firm Ground cleat uses the Trivela microfiber technology for the upper. This material yields a more stretchable sensation than standard synthetic. At the same time, it creates a second skin feel by wrapping around the foot. To further enhance the fit as well as the touch of the upper, an external rubberized material has been added.
- The heel area features grip strips to ensure foot lockdown and prevent heel slippage.
- To provide cushioning for the footbed, the soccer cleat includes a foam insole called Charged Cushioning®. It can also be found in its previous generation and other sports shoes of the brand. It is known for its soft yet stable underfoot support that does not cause any unwanted pressure from the studs.
- Much like the Mizuno Rebula 2 V2 FG, this model’s soleplate comes in the standard Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) plastic. It has a natural sensation on foot. The stud configuration used works well with firm ground courts.

Just like traditional soccer cleat models like the Adidas Mundial Goal, this Under Armour cleat uses a central lacing system is present to customize the fit further. As tension is applied when lacing the cleat, the rubberized material stretches with the Trivela upper to create an ‘as one’ feel besides ensuring foot lockdown.

In the heel area, the heel liner uses synthetic leather. It also contains four black strips that prevent slippage.
