HOKA ONE ONE ‘re-defines ultra-size and ultra-performance’ with the new TenNine

first_img Related Ten years after the creation of over-size and ultra-size running shoes, HOKA ONE ONE, has once again delivered the ‘unexpected’ when it comes to product innovation, ‘re-defining the downhill running experience’ with the launch of the TenNine trail shoe.With never-seen-before midsole geometries and a new wider and innovative platform designed to maximise ground contact for a smoother, more stable and efficient cruise over challenging terrain and distances, the TenNine is designed to create a whole new downhill running experience. Combining HOKA’s continuous learnings and improvements from technologies over the last 10 years, the TenNine represents a ‘concept shoe’ that is also designed to offer improved stability and grip, particularly on softer surfaces.Boasting a heel extension with a geometry specifically designed to manage impact on the heel – which is often exaggerated on the downhill – the TenNine is designed to allow for a smoother transition to the midfoot, forefoot and toe-off. The stability in the midsole – the combination of the unique geometry and the Meta-Rocker technology – is also designed to remain, no matter the incline.Originating from the term ‘Giga physics’, expressed by 10 to the power of nine, the TenNine is geared for runners who are attempting events up to and including the most grueling of ultra-races. It incorporates a host of other features designed to accommodate extreme mileage, including a special lycra vamp that adjusts the fit to accommodate foot swelling over longer distances.The TenNine will be available in the coming days on hokaoneone.eu and at select retail stores for an RRP of £220.www.hokaoneone.comlast_img read more

Carlos Kameni analyses Ter Stegen and Keylor Navas for SPORT

first_imgMarc-Andre ter Stegen and Keylor Navas represent two models of different types of goalkeeper. The style of the German has nothing to do with that of the Costa-Rican. However one thing unites them—they keep net for huge teams and are accustomed to play games in which they may only have to intervene four or five times.  29/11/2016 Upd. on 30/11/2016 at 04:01 CET Real Sociedad striker Carlos Vela’s dig at Barcelona’s MSN Of course Barcelona and Madrid always have two great goalkeepers defending their goals. Each one in their own way, but both of international quality. Both arrive at the Clasico after a season where they have ‘moved’ a bit. Ter Stegen has become the regular starter after Claudio Bravo left, while Keylor suffered an injury which kept him out for various weeks. But now they are incontestable in their sides.  Kameni analiza a los porteros del clásico: ter Stegen – Navas, dos estilos opuestos In contrast to Ter Stegen, Keylor is a goalkeeper with amazing reflexes. He has shown enormous agility between the sticks, capable of reacting in extreme situations. He is one of those goalkeepers who can save a shot in any moment with any part of his body.  TER STEGEN: MASTER WITH HIS FEET This is a detail that can pass unnoticed but in the end is very important. Players like Ter Stegen have to accustom themselves to going minutes without participating in the play at all and when they are involved it could be because of a clear threat on their goal. And this demands mental strength and sober mindedness, which is what he has shown. Keylor seems to have a slight advantage. Madrid are playing better and their defence is secure. Meanwhile Barcelona are not as firm as in other seasons and the team has let in more goals, and the defence has suffered various injury absences. But this counts for little in games like the Clasico. They are clashes that are decided by small details and the goalkeepers are key.  From my point of view what he needs to improve at is his aerial work. Ter Stegen does not dominate. However you have to take into account that currently, given the size of centre-backs, few goalkeepers do deal with the crosses and balls in. IN SPORT.ES Between the sticks he is what you would say is a sober goalkeeper, in that he does what he needs to to save the ball, without over-the-top moves. In terms of reflexes he is not especially gifted, he is not a cat with amazing reactions, using his hands and feet to make saves nobody thought he could make. But he is very solid in these aspects. KEYLOR NAVAS: AMAZING REFLEXES RELATED STORIES Navas is used to being well protected, knowing that few teams will have the opportunity to step foot in Madrid’s area, and in many cases will try their shots from some distance. It’s not easy to play against or get many shots against a Madrid goalkeeper. Keylor does not do as well when it comes from moving the ball out from the back. He’s not a goalkeeper who commits huge errors, imprecisions with passing, but he doesn’t do as well as Ter Stegen and prefers to hit the ball long instead of taking unnecessary risks. Carlos Kameni What you notice most at first is how easy it is for him to move the ball with his feet. He shows a security that you see very little in a goalkeeper. He has great precision that any other player on the pitch would like and with both feet too. The second grand virtue is his ability one on one. He knows how to bear the rival until the last moment, going to ground many times when the attacker has chosen his path and Ter Stegen can work out where the ball will go. This second more or less makes the difference, making the opponent nervous and the goal smaller, and himself bigger. last_img read more
