Nylon TextileLightweight nylon upper with half quick-dry mesh lining for breathability and comfortLace-up vamp for secure fitDual-density midsole for cushioningRubber 9 Extreme outsole provides friction for off-trail, rough terrain and wet or muddy conditions

The holy grail of trail running is to provide both stability and flexibility, but to make a midsole stable yet soft has so far proven too difficult for PD teams world-wide. Upper material is a light yet durable nylon textile, and together with the lacing system it embraces the foot firmly. But it is the midsole construction, and the HGMS2 technology, that is the true innovation. Zeal provides a stable but soft heel grip, this is the impossible combo, made reality through the moulded midsole cradle on the interior side of the shoe. The midsole not only adds superb fit, it also turns into the reinforcement protecting the foot in serious terrain. The height of the heel cup is slightly reduced at centre back in order to reduce the pressure at the Achilles tendon. The medium last is half lined with Quick dry mesh. The torsion and cushioning is in fine balance and together with the low sole profile the ground control is just outstanding. The outsole cleats are positioned so mud doesn’t get stuck, and as if the deep lug pattern wouldn’t provide traction enough the RB9X outsole the benchmark among "sticky rubbers"!

Being from Sweden, IceBugs knows more than they might want to admit about winter. Not only the postcard pretty, snowy landscape type, but anything from -25C, over slush to the modern city version of +5C with the rain blowing hard into your face and the streets flooding.The real icebugs survive by creating an anti-freeze protein in their bodily fluids. We humans can't resort to that. But warn, dry feet and outstanding traction is a good way of staying mobile and increasing the chances of making it through, even keeping the spirits up.
