Vibram is the benchmark rubber sole for trail-running. Over short, medium and long distances. It has developed Megagrip, a rubber formula unrivalled in terms of its grip on slippery terrain and rocks, thus making technical passages – both uphill and downhill – much safer. Megagrip rubber soles are available on many brands and models of shoes: http://eu.vibram.com/en/technology/megagrip/
Vibram innovation on the move! Megagrip and Litebase join forces, making for a sole around 30% lighter but still with the same great performance! Vibram Litebase means “lightness without compromise” when it comes to grip, traction, and resistance to wear-and-tear. So for similar shoes and soles, Litebase cuts the weight by up to 30-40 grams per shoe (60-80 grams per pair). On short trails (such as the Vertical Kilometer) and long trails alike, Vibram soles equipped with the dual Litebase-Megagrip technologies offer an unbeatable advantage.

DISCOVERING VIBRAM TRACTION LUG – TRY IT YOURSELF!
The Vibram Sole Factor Mobile Lab returns to Chamonix from 23 to 27 August 2021 for the Ultra-Trail® trade show.
On board the laboratory you will have the opportunity to discover the new Vibram Traction Lug technology; those interested will be able to resole their trail running shoes and try the sole for the first time.
To benefit from this free service, all you need to do is book: the visitor will be asked to carefully test the technology and share detailed technical feedback with Vibram within the established terms. For technical reasons we can only resole a limited number of times; book online from 12 to 23 July 2021: http://vibram.testerplace.com/

Taking part in ultra-endurance races like the UTMB® means you will need to be well equipped to deal with its varied and demanding trails, sometimes in difficult weather conditions. “Trailrunning Team Vibram” runners recommend shoes with Vibram Megagrip soles and the right technical clothing!
