Adidas have today unveiled the latest colourway for their premium speed football boot, the f50 adiZero Prime – and Sport.locker.net can bring you exclusive imagery!
Weighing in at a mere 150g, the new Blue/White/Slime (yes, slime!) are the lightest boots on the market and will surely be a hit with those speedy players out there.
Most football matches these days are won and lost by millimetres and split second decisions, so adidas have designed the f50 adiZero Prime to redefine the rules of fast.
Which means the boot is packed full of technology from the industry’s lightest fabrics!
The upper is made to feel like a second skin with single layer adiLITE twin material (no foam or lining) with carbon-fiber optic which makes the boot soft and lightweight yet still highly durable.
As for the sprint frame outsole, it’s also lightweight and provides stability through geometry to create the lightest football outsole on the planet.
The new Traxion stud shape also allows for maximum acceleration, stopping and turning.
The internal TPU support bands provide lateral stability and support whilst also reinforcing the single layer material.
And the new TPU bottom frame help transfer force from the outsole to the upper and also protects against upper abrasion.
Adidas have also provided us with these awesome facts:
- Modern day footballers perform a 15m sprint every 90 seconds.
- The average time for a player to receive a pass and have played the next pass is 1.15 seconds in the FA Premier League.
- Of the 10KM that an average player runs in a game, over 1 KM will be done at top-speed.
- Professional players can reach top speeds of 33 km/h over longer sprint distances – meaning losing the ball at the edge of your own area can result in you picking the ball out of your own net in less than 5 seconds.
- The Fastest players can cover distances of over 11m/s when at full speed.
Stay tuned to SportLocker in the coming weeks, as we look to get our hands on a pair and put them through the usual rigorous playtest.
