We're preparing to welcome a new brand here to SoccerBible. Fresh from South American shores arrive a brand ready to stake their claim in the European market. Armed with a boot that breaks the sub 200g weight barrier, we can give you a hands-on exclusive with one of the newest names in the game!
In the interest of anticipation, we were handed a one-off black-out pair of the brand's lead boot. Before we pull back the curtains on European football's new arrival, take a look at what is in store. Think you know who is behind the disguise? Let us know!
As a synonym of lightness, flexibility and design, the boot weighs just 190g, positioning itself alongside the f50 adizero miCoach and Puma evoSPEED. Where this boot will set itself apart amongst the overcrowded speed market is in its unique construction. The brand have developed the world's first seamless cleat.
For lightweight football boots, brands use the familiar method of fabric stitching to hold the shoe together, whereas this boot is constructed using the brand's exclusive Termotec technology – a thermal bonding process similar to elite level match balls.
Across the forefoot the boot employs a highly-resistant PolyUrethane coating. This Aracnun texture zone increases friction and spin when deploying shots and strikes, while also adding an improved feel for the ball in the toe and forefoot area.
The overall weight of any speed boot will be highly determined by the outsole. The sole-plate blends TPU and Nylon to create a super lightweight and highly durable chassis. Cracked it?
