PUMA UNLEASHES THE NEW ULTRA 1.1

PUMA UNLEASHES THE NEW ULTRA 1.1

Following years of testing and player feedback from some of the world’s best attacking players, including Antoine Griezmann, Sergio Agüero and Nikita Parris, the PUMA ULTRA 1.1 is engineered to deliver the game’s fastest football boot.

 

 

Combining a dynamic silhouette that utilises a fully engineered and technologically advanced, lightweight MATRYXEVO® upper with an instinctive running spike outsole to create the ultimate weapon for speed.

Romain Girard, Senior Head of Innovation at Puma says:

“A key feature of the new MATRYXEVO® material is that it is one layer. We wanted to embed all the functionality into one upper material to make it as foot-friendly as possible. This helps to create a superior fit without perforating the material to keep it lightweight, strong and durable. The feedback from our professional players and our consumer testing has been exceptional”.

 

 

Now for some science:

After years of testing the materials properties, PUMA has worked with its partners to develop a method to coat each individual fibre – an industry first, and constructed the perfect blend of polyester yarns, carbon yarns and aramid fibres. The extremely strong aramid fibres run through the lateral side of the upper. Player feedback identified that players needed more support on the lateral side to keep them locked in, preventing the material stretching over the tooling.

 

 

The carbon yarns provide superior lightweight benefits and additional foot support to ignite explosive forward motion. A GripControl Pro skin has been applied to key areas of the upper to provide complete and decisive control of the ball when moving at uncatchable speeds.

 

 

Bonded to the upper is a lightweight PEBA SpeedUnit outsole, featuring a split sole design inspired by PUMA running spike DNA for dynamic acceleration. The sole plate combines subtle ‘spikes’ in the forefoot and V-shaped blades for added aerodynamics, configured for explosive speed.

 

 

The PUMA ULTRA 1.1 launches in the Chasing Adrenaline colour combination of shocking orange, black and white and is available on pre-sale from August 12th at PUMA.com and PUMA stores and leading football retailers worldwide from 24th August.
