At the Diagonale des Fous in Réunion, the shoe’s connection keeps performance up

This is one of the last big events for Supercross fans: the legendary Diagonale des Fous. This somewhat crazy 165km trek from Reunion Island will start on October 20th, but what kind of shoes do you wear? Over the past few years, these important trailer companions have become a challenge for engineers, and now that technology supports performance, environmental protection. Listen to Jérôme Val’s report on the 2.0 sneaker on Radio France Sport.
Today it is impossible to run with a simple basketball. More bouncy, lighter and more durable: 2.0 running shoes have become a vital ally of performance. Air traffic control engineer Ludovic Pommeret has been working for 20 years. Winner of the 2016 Ultra-trail du Mont-Blanc and last year’s Diagonale des Fous, he has witnessed the evolution of shoes along with his longtime partner, the Hoka brand.
The first step is to present a prototype. British brand Inov8, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary next year, has teamed up with the University of Manchester and one of its teams to take their research far ahead, winning the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics for their work on graphene, which is highly resistant to corrosion. form of carbon. Work until the crystals present in the sole of the brand are obtained. Inov8 even released nitrogen shoes last week.
Large and durable shoes. Today it is not enough to have ultra-light and comfortable equipment: it must be durable in order to avoid buying pairs too often. Catalan Killian Jornet, winner of the last UTMB (Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc), a great supercross star, has just launched his own brand called Nnormal with the credo: sell the same product for more than two seasons instead of one.
Reliability and efficiency: the technology is expensive: 180 euros per pair for the same shoes as Jornet and 190 euros for nitrogen.
