Performance-enhancing runner: the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly
The Nike ZoomX Vaporfly is 4.2 per cent faster. This is possible with the new long-distance series, studies calculated when Nike presented the first Vaporfly in 2017. Some even spoke of technological doping. Which in turn led to World Athletics, the governing body of professional track and field athletes, issuing a special shoe regulation for the Tokyo Olympics. The Nike ZoomX Vaporfly, available online at Keller Sports in the Vaporfly Shop, never suffered from a lack of attention - which is due to its special construction. On the one hand, it is based on a foam that is also used for aircraft insulation. It used to be called Pebax. Nike named it ZoomX.
The mixture is lighter, more flexible and more energy-dissipating than other damping materials known until then. Over the entire length of the Vaporfly, Nike combines ZoomX with a carbon plate, which is supposed to donate additional energy to every step. Nike spoke of up to 85 percent energy recovery when it released its Vaporfly in 2017. In any case, the interplay of carbon plate and ZoomX lays the foundation for speed. For increased performance.
For the path to a personal best. Even if you don't run your half marathon 4.2 percent faster. With the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly, the brand is fully committed to innovation and speed and therefore also produced its special VaporWeave for the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT%. For the NEXT% 2, this has already been replaced by an incredibly soft, yet supportive mesh. Always better.
Nike's ZoomX Vaporfly: Comfortable pursuit of personal bests
Faster than ever before. That's what Nike wants to give you with the Vaporfly, and that's why it relies on a technology setup that also helped Eliud Kipchoge become the first person to run a marathon in under two hours. ZoomX and carbon plate are just the beginning. In addition, there is an upper that is designed to give you the necessary comfort even on long distances. This is enhanced by additional foam in the heel area and a spacious toebox. In addition, the tongue of the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly has a light padding, which in turn reduces the pressure of the lacing on the instep. With a mix of energy recovery and comfort, Nike wants the Vaporfly to push you to keep improving your personal best. Opportunity is at hand.
Energy. Speed. Comfort - the advantages of the Nike Vaporfly
ZoomX and carbon plate lay the foundation. But how exactly? And what advantages does the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% 2 bring compared to its predecessors?
- Revised upper for even more comfort: Instead of VaporWeave, the Nike Vaporfly NEXT% 2 is covered with an upper that strongly resembles mesh. The decisive factor here is a mixture of breathability, flexibility and stability. On the one hand, you stand firmly in the runner, while on the other hand, there is not too much pressure anywhere.
- Wider toebox for more comfort: The latest generation of the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly has a more spacious toebox. This is especially helpful if your feet are a little wider. Nike also reinforces the toe box with rubber inserts that provide additional support. The tongue pad reduces the pressure of the lacing on the back of the foot.
- Unique energy recovery thanks to ZoomX foam: Hardly any foam compound in a running shoe comes as close to the feeling of a trampoline as Nike's ZoomX. In the Vaporfly, it runs the entire length of the shoe and generates unparalleled energy recovery thanks to its unique composition. This makes the Nike Vaporfly incredibly reactive, cushioning effectively to catapult you into your next step just a short time later. At the same time, ZoomX remains pleasantly light and thus also ensures the necessary agility.
- A carbon plate for extra speed: ZoomX alone would only be half the battle. That's why Nike supplements its high-tech foam in the Vaporfly with a carbon fibre plate that also extends over the entire length of the runner. On the one hand, this is light, but on the other hand, it has a propulsive effect and pushes you forward.
Nike Vaporfly - racing shoe for the record chase
Whenever you want to reach your goal as quickly as possible, leaving as much competition behind you as possible, buying from the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly Store is the right choice. The premium running shoe is designed for long distances, often worn in marathons, but is also suitable for races over shorter distances. Because the propulsive combination of ZoomX and carbon fibre plate also works excellently there.
