Ride Concepts introduces Hellion Elite shoe

Ride Concepts has introduced Hellion Elite, the first performance low-top in its line to feature the proprietary Rubber Kinetics | DST 4.0 Max Grip rubber compound.

Recognising that the anatomical foot shapes of men and women are ‘vastly different’, Hellion Elite uses gender-specific lasting (the three-dimensional mould of a foot) to deliver a ‘precise fit and flex for both men and women’. The shape of the last determines the shape of the shoe including factors such as the toe shape, heel width and height and forefoot width.

The Rubber Kinetics | DST 4.0 Max Grip rubber compound with hexagon outsole delivers increased pedal feel and grip. The Hellion Elite also features a new two-panel microfiber synthetic upper that is lightweight, abrasion-resistant and doesn’t soak up water. On the inside, a new antibacterial mesh lining helps to decrease that everyday odour.

The EVA midsole provides additional comfort and shock absorption on the pedal. Finer details such as a gusset to keep the tongue in place while an elastic lace tuck secures your laces. The High Impact Zone Technology insole uses D3O’s impact-absorbing material under the ball of the foot and heel to soak up the trail chatter, transferring less energy to your feet.
