KNOW YOUR TECH breaks down the scientific technology used in your favorite sneakers and activewear. Let’s demystify your next purchase: today’s technology is adidas SprintFrame. The lightweight chassis provides a low-to-the-ground platform, delivering ample stability in an area that is easily overlooked by consumers. Many of today's sneakers are constructed with flexible, minimal materials, so a supportive layer is a necessity to keep everything "in place".
What is it? A midfoot chassis created through geometrical research. Lightweight yet supportive and strong, SprintFrame was inspired by the fluid design of bridges and their ability to support large amounts of weight.
How does it work? SprintFrame helps to keep the wearer's foot closer to the ground, delivering support and proportion throughout the entire foot. Often cushioned by a PU insole, the sleek construction of the SprintFrame chassis helps to keep sneakers lightweight while maintaining the stability needed for a variety of sports.
