The Answer is U: the perfect running shoe for all runners

Over 100,000 years of evolution have produced a perfect system: the human body and its musculoskeletal system. An ingenious design protects it from harmful external forces. Biological structures, like for example the menisci in the knee or our heel, are designed to be round and elastic.

The menisci are tube-like elements around the ends of the bones in the upper and lower leg. The bony heel is enveloped by soft tissue. This way, the external forces that act on our bodies when we move are centered like a ball thrown into a bowl that always comes to rest in the center. These forces pass through the center of the knee joint. As a result, the human body is protected, and biological structures are subjected to optimal and physiologically healthy loads. The natural centering mechanism ensures that no harmful tilting or twisting occurs in the joints. Therefore, the solution for pain-free and easy running lies in each of us!

Inspired by the shape and function of these human structures, we have developed a new, revolutionary running shoe technology that lets runners run as intended by nature: U-TECH™ is the answer!

Biomechanical research: pain-free running thanks
to U-TECH™ technology

U-TECH™  is a U-shaped, elastic midsole innovation that surrounds the foot – just like the human heel is surrounded by soft tissue. This way, forces generated by each footstrike run through the body straight and centered, and unphysiological, harmful movements (such as a tipping and twisting of the knee and the Achilles tendon, as unfortunately provoked by conventional running shoes) are prevented from the get-go.

Our U-TECH™ technology is the result of the latest scientific-biomechanical research. It enables a natural movement sequence without attempting to change or correct it.
U-TECH™ works, for all runner types alike:
  • For neutral runners,
  • overpronators,
  • and also for supinators.

The result is a fascinating new running experience: incredibly light, safe, and energetic. At the same time, U-TECH™ leads to a risk reduction of running-induced injuries. We have been able to prove this scientifically, and it has now been confirmed by thousands of enthusiastic runners.

Das Ergebnis ist ein faszinierend neues Lauferlebnis: unglaublich leicht, sicher und energiegeladen. Gleichzeitig führt U-TECH™ zu einer Risikoreduktion von laufinduzierten Verletzungen. Das konnten wir wissenschaftlich beweisen, und es wird uns von mittlerweile Tausenden enthusiastischen Läufer*innen bestätigt.
