ZOTEK® PEBA used in PUMA’s super lightweight evoSPEED SL boot
PUMA is one of the world’s leading Sports Brands, designing, developing, selling and marketing footwear, apparel and accessories. For over 65 years, PUMA has established a history of making fast product designs for the fastest athletes on the planet.
Light and fast have become lighter and faster with the introduction in June 2015 of PUMA’s innovative football boot, the evoSPEED SL. PUMA’s lightest yet match boot was designed to give footballers a new game advantage enhancing speed and agility.
ZOTEK® PEBA contributed to the radical weight reduction PUMA achieved with the evoSPEED SL boot, delivering significant performance benefits when combined with other innovative materials. The ZOTEK PEBA insole provided the ultimate in lightweight and high energy return.
ZOTEK PEBA foam delivers performance over a wide temperature range, right down to -40oC. The combination of high energy return and low flex fatigue delivers performance way beyond traditional closed cell foams, and with none of the volatile chemicals.
Some of the world’s best players including Sergio Agüero, Marco Reus, Radamel Falcao, Marco Verratti, Antoine Griezmann and many more have worn the boot.
Marco Reus commented, “This new boot is a real change to what we have been wearing before, it actually looks and feels like a totally new product. They are so light, you can almost not feel them, and still I feel they give me exactly that support I need to have from a boot. This is a whole new direction of boot design.”
