Spike Type – For optimal surface grip, pyramid spike pins are affixed to the spike wells of the shoe. These are ¼ inch in length and are removable. These are intended for lightweight, versatile traction. 

Spike Plate – Situated in the forefoot of the track spike is the Pebax plate. The plate has a good balance both rigidity and lightness, allowing a propulsive track performance.

Updates to the Under Armour Kick Distance 3 

  • The one and only noticeable enhancement made to the running shoe is the integration of the open mesh upper. It has flexible and breathable properties, allowing foot conformity and a healthy foot environment, respectively. 
  • For the rest of its features, the same components have been outfitted to the long-range running shoe. For instance, it still sports the same 4-pin Pebax plate for superior grip on the tracks. 
  • Intended for minimal yet high-strength cushioning, the same full-length EVA midsole is implemented within the foot chamber.

A 4-pin Pebax plate is furnished to the outsole. The same outsole configuration is present in the Nike Zoom Matumbo 3. 

Attenuates ground impact 

It adheres to the featherlight composition of the track running shoe. It is a necessary quality from a long-distance running spike to be ultra-light. This is to enable endurance in the competition.

The spike plate perfectly embodies such a characteristic; it is made out of thermoplastic elastomer, exhibiting low density. This technical element prevents joint pains from setting in by softening impact. 

Grippy performance 

Moreover, it allows for a grippy performance on the tracks with its makeup. It also accommodates the removable pins of the track spike.

Delivers cushioning

I race distances between 800 meters and 10K whether it be on the track, the roads, or on cross country courses. My typical training consists of easy days, long days, workouts (fartleks, tempos, interval training, etc.). My typical training paces range from 7’30 a mile on easy days to sub-5 minutes a mile on fast interval days, and with many paces in between. I run anywhere from 40-60 miles a week. My personal bests are 2:00 for 800m, 4:30 for 1600m, 9:50 for 3200m, 15:57 for 5K, and 34:10 for 10K.
