Updates to Under Armour SpeedForm Slingride TRI

  • The Under Armour Speedform Slingride TRI boasts several interesting features in its design. For instance, the footwear has a full-length rubber outsole that’s capable of providing excellent grip and enhanced durability.
  • In its midsole, the Dual-layer Charged Cushioning® system, as well as the fixed foam insole, delivers utmost comfort and flexibility for a better, more efficient ride.
  • The precise feel, fit and comfort of the Under Armour Speedform® technology in the upper accommodates smooth transitions through the gait cycle.

Under Armour SpeedForm Slingride TRI size and fit

The footwear has the medium sized forefoot, mid, and heel section. It is more suitable for runners with medium-sized feet. It has a standard running length. The semi-curved shape enables the shoe to adapt itself effectively to the shape of the runner’s foot.

Outsole      

The full-length rubber outsole delivers the needed amount of traction. It also has a durable nature. These factors enable the runner to gain control over the surfaces with ease and sureness.

Midsole

The Dual-layer Charged Cushioning® in the midsole provides an enhanced level of comfort. The two layers of different densities work together to maintain an unparalleled level of cushioning and flexibility.

The fixed foam insole is added for a customized feel of comfort and better durability of the midsole for the user.

Upper

The Under Armour Speedform® technology in the upper feels exceptionally soft and seamless against the skin. It provides an unparalleled level of comfortability and also durability.

The strong Dyneema® fibers further reinforce the structure of the footwear and also enhance its flexibility. The material adapts itself to the changing movements of the foot while running, thereby maintaining a snug fit for the user throughout the motion.

The shoe boasts the asymmetrical compression zone, which functions like a slingshot. It boosts the forward motion of the runner and ensures a faster, more efficient heel-to-toe transition.

The Lace-up closure locks down the foot in position and also gives a feel of customized fit to the user.

A Molded External Heel counter further helps in securing the heel in its respective position while running and also ensures additional protection for the foot.

The shoe features a thin tongue and the only very slightly padded collar. This construction maintains minimal yet optimal levels of cushioning, keeping the foot in position and preventing uncomfortable sliding inside the shoe.

The breathable textile lining across the upper heightens comfortability by allowing the runner to feel a soft and smooth in-shoe environment that’s also well-ventilated.
