SILK MATTE & SQUARE MICROFIBER
With an extensive research of exclusive finishes and the proper choice of materials we have created Silk Matte and Square Microfiber material.The surface treatment ensures our products have a unique look that enhances the design and allows for easy maintenance. Our Microfiber is characterized by being wear resistant, stable, lightweight, waterproof and eco-compatible. It is subjected to hydro treatment, reducing the water absorption and features a strong anti-mold characteristic. The HS Microfiber is certified, does not contain hazardous substances and complies with strict European standards. It is micro-perforated and cut by Laser nano technology for optimal cooling effect. Reduced stitching and nylon mesh upper support.
In the development of the Revolve Vittoria collaborated with an orthopaedics team to develop a brand new revolutionary anatomic last. By studying the natural shape of the foot, the Revolve is able to deliver a consistent 360 degree fitting experience.
SURROUND FIT SYSTEM (SFS)
The Surround Fit System (SFS) is a new concept of bi-directional self-centering closure configuration that, combined with the Li2 dials, give you a wraparound feeling without any pressure points for a perfect fit.
FCT CARBON SOLE
The leading-edge Forged Carbon Technology (FCT). The term “forged” used to describe the particular process where high temperatures and pressures up to 1500 psi- created a carbon composite which is up to 2/3 less dense than metal titanium, but much stronger. This process allows us to make very thin and light sole without compromising the rigidity.
ANATOMIC MOLDABLE INSOLE
To increase performance in race and improve the endurance in training, this insole has a thermoformable insert. Thanks to this solution it is possible to customize the fit to the individuals arch and achieve a more natural and comfortable support. Increasing the stability reduces internal movement and the risk of skin irritation.
