The Kaptiva will allow you to unleash your speed while training, racing or on long days in the mountains. The unique design allows them to provide the perfect balance of protection, cushion, stability and traction. Designed for those needing a precise, comfortable fit for running on technical terrain, they deliver superior grip on any surface.
  • TRUST-FIT® shape cradles your foot for a precise and comfortable fit while reducing foot slippage.

  • SLIP-ON construction with knit fabric reduces the overall volume for an optimized and performance oriented fit and super-clean look.

  • Flex-Grooves in the outsole facilitate the perfect flex while the 1.5mm EVA rock-guard in the forefoot & heel protect from rocks and roots.

  • STB control inserts provide torsional stability regardless of the technical terrain you may encounter.
