Hiking and running in harsh and variable terrains requires a superior level of comfort and secure foot hold. The Magma upper and footbed are pre shaped around a specific anatomical last to deliver a great feel and perfect fit, right out of the box. This anatomical fit also provides greater midfoot support and heel hold.
A unique bottom unit; inspired by nature, designed for nature. The oversized lugs are reversed to increase the contact of the rubber with the surface. In combination with a triple density midsole, the lugs move and conform to the variations found in outdoor terrain.
Lower midsole layer: Soft density EVA allows the deformation of the lugs to adapt to different terrains.
Central layer: Hard ESS EVA protects the foot from hard, edgy rocks.
Upper layer: Mid density EVA is light, flexible and cushioned to deliver the maximum level of comfort.
Vibram® Megagrip Compound delivers the ultimate level of grip and durability on all surfaces and terrain
Both Forge and Forge S uppers are built with a newly developed, highly abrasion resistant elastic fabric. This design allows a high level of support, protection and durability within an extremely adaptive and flexible upper.
High-level of adaptability during customization
High-level of flexibility and comfort while walking
The unique multi-traction outsole tread pattern, inspired by MTB enduro tire designs, made with Vibram® Litebase™ technology and Megagrip™ compound rubber, offers optimal grip on all surfaces and in both dry and wet conditions.
The ultra-large heel shape provides great stability when hiking or running downhill and on technical traverses. Two rubber stability fins on each side of the back of the shoe provide an unparalleled level of braking on technical descents, including on scree, gravel or loose rocks.
Comfort and running precision are always at the top of trail runners’ requirements – even if they almost represent opposite poles. Our signature Knitted Engineered Guidance technology combines the comfort of a one-piece knitted upper with the secure foot hold offered by a lightweight engineered cage structure.
The laces are fully integrated into the knitted upper. Thanks to their clever design, the special gusset laces setup allows precise, secure micro wrap adjustments and prevents pressure points at the instep.
The first high-end, customizable footbed built specifically to match the unique last of our shoes.
All the benefits of a customized arch support without the disadvantages (trimming and changing the foot positioning) of expensive after-market solutions
When muscles get tired during a long traverse or downhill section on rocky terrain, it’s crucial to have a shoe capable of supporting the midfoot to prevent ankle injuries. Unlike our other C.A.S. shoes, the Tecnica Magma is offered with a pre molded, cushioned EVA footbed that delivers a great, instant fit without requiring customization.
When muscles get tired during a long-distance race or training on trails, it’s crucial to have a shoe capable of supporting the midfoot and accurately transferring information about rough terrain. Thanks to C.A.S. technology, our footbeds and uppers can be thermo-molded around the heel and the foot arch to deliver a new level of running precision and minimise fatigue.
No two feet are alike. For this reason, we believe that shoes should be able to adapt to the unique shape of each person’s feet. The option to customize our shoes makes it possible to dramatically reduce the time normally needed to break in a new pair of shoes. This also solves the majority of problems related to comfort, blistering and lack of precision.
Each foot is unique. This is why we believe that footwear should deliver a specific and personalised fit. The option to customize our shoes dramatically reduces the time normally needed to break in a new pair of shoes and resolves the majority of foot problems. Tecnica Origin LD are the only running shoes that can be thermo-moulded according to the individual’s foot shape.
Our new sole is developed with the innovative VIBRAM® LITEBASE ™ technology and MEGAGRIP™ compound rubber. It wraps the upper in critical abrasion zones, providing grip, traction and durability not just underfoot, but also on the toe and sides – all without additional weight or bulk – and with no need for a conventional glued rubber rand.
The use of premium nubuck leather on the Plasma and the uniquely developed stretch dwr treated fabric on the Plasma S, offers water repellency and durability. Gore-Tex® liners provide the ultimate combination of waterproofness and breathability to ensure our shoes are both durable and comfortable anytime, everywhere.
We designed a new lacing solution that matches with our anatomic fit. High tenacity Kevlar loops are used instead of the classic metal hooks which, in combination with a unique rugged lace surface, are self-locking.
No lace loosening while walking
No lateral exposure eliminating breaking laces
Unique, even foot wrapping alleviates pressure points
Rough, technical terrain presents the ultimate test for trail runners’ shoes and legs. Especially on downhill sections. The high rebound EVA compound midsole offers good elasticity and with a 21 mm / 27 mm stack hight and 6mm drop, provides outstanding cushioning and protection for long-distance running.
Grip and stability are always a top trail running safety priority. That’s why the ORIGIN LD sole features VIBRAM® MEGAGRIP™ compound and an exclusive lug design that guarantees multidirectional traction and safe downhill braking for greater safety, plus superior grip on both dry and wet terrain.
