Climacool - The wind can be your personal air conditioner.
Experience 360° ventilation around your foot for cooling comfort and improved efficiency. Literally with every stride ClimaCool is working to keep your foot cool and comfortable. Specially placed ventilation in key heat zones channel cool air around your foot, evaporating sweat and lowering your temperature so you can perform better. Mother Nature provides the breeze, you provide the motor, and the Adidas ClimaCool system does the rest.
Climaproof - Your shoes can be a base camp.
A breathable, highly water and wind-resistant construction used for a bootie or on the outer shell to keep your foot dry. Every seasoned, wily veteran of the outdoors knows that getting your feet wet can be disastrous. First comes wet feet, then comes frostbite, and then comes a free rescue helicopter ride back home. ClimaProof is a weather protection system that uses a breathable material coating for rain and wind resistance to keep your feet dry and comfortable and the emergency aircraft in the hangar.
Adidas Trail GCS - Rough Terrain can be conquered with a 4x4 suspension system.
The ground control system adapts to uneven, rocky, rutty, overgrown, bushwhacking type terrain so your foot doesn't have to.
Adidas has taken the same kind of technology seen in thousands of SUV commercials and strapped it to your feet. The freely moving internal plate and midsole provides a leveling effect that can turn the most uneven trails into secure ground so you can attack it confidently and aggressively - at any angle.
Adidas GCS - You can flow along a river of cement.
Introducing the Adidas GCS, a system that gradually adapts to the landing surface to slow the foot's rate of pronation for better control.
The ground control system is an active system that reduces your foot's pronation speed and rotation with two sliding plates that adapt to the landing surface, giving you maximum motion control and a minimum of potentially harmful knee stress. It starts to work from the moment your shoe touches the ground, regardless of the angle of your foot strike. With the ground Control System you will flow smoothly down any road with a minimum of shock and impact.
