adidas India launches a3® Gigaride

New Delhi, March 2006: adidas India Marketing Pvt. Ltd., the leading sports performance brand in the world, has launched the a3® Gigaride, a shoe that screams performance and has the technology to back it up. Developed after five years of research and testing, a3® Gigaride has impeccable style and cushioning and is priced at Rs 8399/-. It is available at select adidas stores across India.

The a3® Energy Management System, a comprehensive midsole cushioning and control system, has been designed to absorb even the fiercest impact. Every time your foot hits the ground, the a3® Gigaride's a3® cushioning elements store energy like a power cell ultimately creating a chain reaction that cuts response time and powers the foot forward enhancing speed, bounce and durability. This superior cushioning thus ensures that the shoe meets the specific needs of athletes in different sports.

"The heel to toe cushioning gives an unstoppably smooth ride and the softest landing in its class. Says Mr. Andreas Gellner, MD, adidas India "Concrete, grass, tarmac and potholes, whatever the surface, the Gigaride gives an unstoppable stability. The seamfree technology eliminates the synthetic overlays making the shoe more comfortable and flexible without sacrificing the upper support.

The a3® Gigaride, unlike other one-dimensional shoe technologies, allows each piece to be tuned to a particular need. It offers three important benefits: cushioning, guidance and drives for optimal performance.

Cushioning element - For shock absorption and reduction of pronation velocity.

This element makes initial contact during heel strike. This softer element optimises shock absorption and reduces the speed of pronation offering the runner a smoother landing.

Guidance elements - For motion control during the footstrike.

Medially and laterally positioned guidance elements offer motion control while the foot is still in the pronation phase. These two elements guide the foot to a neutral position.

Stability element- For medial support and reduction of over-pronation.

As the foot rolls inward, the medially positioned stability element helps to eliminate excessive pronation.

Highlights of the shoe

· a3® provides smooth, resilient cushioning

· Synthetic upper

· Molded EVA sockliner for comfort

· Structured midsole for optimal stability

· adiWEAR® outsole offers the ultimate in high-wear durability

· Imported
