Acceleritas 5 RB9X
Acceleritas5 is minimalism the Icebug way, a must-have for the thrill-seeking runner venturing into swimrun, mud race or beyond the beaten track! The upper materials has been updated to a super soft and airy textile, so light and smooth it feels like being barefoot. The water pickup is minimal, the drainage is excellent and hence the wet weight is almost as low as when it’s dry. The midsole is very flexible and keeps the weight down. The height of the heel cup is slightly reduced in order to reduce pressure at the Achilles tendon. Terrain feel is remarkable thanks to the low profile of the sole. The shoe promotes the natural movement of the foot, it’s like running in a pair of socks, but socks that provide thermal and impact protection, and traction. The outsole is designed with a pattern that is optimized to grip on hard as well as on soft surface, with an aggressive pattern where dirt is steered away to the sides in diagonal channels (it’s the same principal as in tractor tires). Acceleritas5 outsole is crowned with the jewel among sticky rubbers: RB9X®. This innovative rubber compound provides incredible traction on both wet and dry surfaces, without compromising the durability!

Non absorbing materials gain very little weight when they get wet. Important for footwear used in wet condition activities where weight is a critical factor. Note that being non-absorbing does not mean that they keep the inside of the shoe dry.
RB9X – Rubber 9 Extreme is our latest rubber compound development, and it sets a new standard in providing friction. Lab tests (SATRA) show that RB9X outgrips the competition, but still matches the durability of an asphalt running shoe. In real action that means up-graded traction reliability in wet and slippery conditions: On rocks, concrete, wet grass etc. With our patented studded technologies we’ve made it possible to run on ice, now we’re the traction leaders for rubber soles as well!
