All good runs start with a good grip. Take a closer look at Icebug's Acceleritas8 RB9X and you will discover that the sole has the same pattern as a tractor tire. A machine that can plow through everything. Top it off with the feeling of total freedom and fun running. Unbeatable, we say.
🧴 Top in bluesign®-certified polyester, made of 100% recycled PET polyester from plastic bottles.
👟 Outsole with 15% recycled rubber.
🍃 20% BLOOM® Foam in the midsole.
🕸 Heel and toe reinforcements made from recycled fishing nets and recycled polyethylene.
With its light weight and airy, flexible upper of bluesign®-certified polyester mesh, Acceleritas gives the feeling of running barefoot. Or as close to barefoot as you can get in a trail shoe that protects you from slippery, sharp rocks. Acceleritas absorbs minimal water, making the shoe’s wet weight almost as light as its dry weight - a crucial factor when all of nature is your playground.
The Acceleritas8 RB9X now has a slightly wider toe box to provide more comfort. A little perk without compromising performance.
It was 2010. Our former product developer and orienteer Erik Öhlund was at home on his farm outside Ulricehamn and caught sight of his tractor. A machine that could plow through mud, both up and down. Suddenly an idea appeared. ''Why not develop a sole that can do exactly the same thing?'' He returned to his workshop and started working. The rest is Acceleritas history. A unique and fun trail shoe that has been loved by many.
''Only the best sole can perform as well as a tractor''
