The TriBase™ Reign, Under Armours’ global CrossFit shoe, has just dropped!
Designed specifically for functional fitness, high-intensity training and weightlifting, this minimal shoe is lower to the groundto give athletes the ability to seamlessly transfer power from the ground into their intended movement.
With a 2mm heel-to-toe drop – one of the most progressive options on the market – your feet will move as they’re made to move.
“The ultimate goal is being screwed into the ground so that your power is being driven through the floor. You feel extremely confident,” explains Marquan Jones, Global Under Armour Athlete and professional functional fitness athlete.
In addition to providing a flat and stable base, the UA TriBase™ technology boasts three zones of flexibilityto allow the foot to move naturally. The forefoot flex groove helps with upwards and downwards natural motion, while the sides of the TriBase™ aid in torsional flexing.
Durability baked in
Tough ripstop material and durable mesh provide 360-degree abrasion and heat resistance. The medial and lateral rubber wrapping on the outsole not only adds durability but also enhances movements such as rope climbs.
With its performance-first design, the UA TriBase™ Reign allows CrossFitters to transition quickly during any workout, whether it’s in a training environment or out on the competition floor.
Additional features include:
- External heel counter for increased stability and locked-in heel
- Full-length Micro G® foam midsole for the ultimate in responsive cushioning
- Full-rubber outsole wraps the lateral and medial sides for greater durability
- Strategic rubber build under the toe box for a more powerful floor grip
- Non-removable insole
- Weighs 292g
The Under Armour TriBase™ Reign is available locally through Apollo Brands, the official distributor of Under Armour in South Africa.
