Under Armour HOVR Machina 2 Running Shoes
UA HOVR Machina 2 is more than a running shoe. Yes, it gives you energy return and the speed of a Pebax propulsion plate, but it also coaches you in real-time to help you run better when you connect them to UA MapMyRun.
3D Spacer Mesh Upper
Designed to keep you comfortable and cool, the Under Armour HOVR Machina 2 Running Shoes have been constructed using a 3D Spacer Mesh Upper. Lightweight and breathable for all temperature comfort, the 3D Spacer Mesh Upper allows cool air to circulate throughout the upper whilst, at the same time allowing hot, humid air to escape; this creates a perfect microclimate for your skin to thrive in. The increase in ventilation ensures you remain comfortable and cool as your training session heats up, ensuring you never feel an uncomfortable heat build-up. As well as this, the upper features a mineral-infused rush lining that absorbs your body energy and reflects it back to improve your endurance over long distances. For rearfoot protection and durability, there is an external heel counter. This will provide additional support, keeping your foot in a firm and upright position, and it will keep the rearfoot locked in place. To improve your visibility during night-time running, the shoe has reflective detailing that makes you easier to spot on late night adventures. Completing the upper is a lacing system that locks down the midfoot to reduce in-shoe slippage so you can enjoy distraction-free strides.
HOVR Technology Midsole
UA HOVR technology resides in the midsole to supply a zero-gravity feel. The wax-based foam, which is incredibly strong and resilient, holds a super-soft durometer that offers incredible shock attenuation for every single foot strike. This cushy construction needs to be contained to serve its purpose, so Under Armour wrap it in a compression mesh Energy Web. The Energy Web contains and moulds to the cushioning core to deliver strong responsiveness and energy-return. UA's winning combination of advantages yields a ride that allows runners to perform better with less fatigue. The soft centre helps to spare your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving surfaces, and its mesh web encasement increases responsiveness, reducing your use of superfluous muscle power to keep your legs feeling fresh for the road ahead. Additionally, an Under Armour record sensor tracks, analyses, and stores virtually every running metric so you know exactly what you need to do to get better. Completing the midsole is a sprint inspired Pebax speed plate which offers increased energy return and powerful push-offs for more dynamic movements.
Durable Rubber Outsole
Developed to provide traction and grip over long distances, the outsole of the Under Armour HOVR Machina 2 Running Shoes has been constructed using a durable rubber. The rubber used on the outsole is extremely durable and abrasion-resistant to ensure long-lasting grip on road surfaces. This will protect the shoe, and the outsole's durability over a long course of time, increasing the shoe's longevity. The rubber is able to form a solid bond with the ground below. This will ensure that you will stay in complete control with a smooth and stable ride. Under the heel, there are strategically placed carbon-rubber traction pods under the heel of the outsole. This will further improve traction and improve durability in the vulnerable heel area that receives most of the shocks. Other high-impact zones have more solid protection which will provide greater durability at less of the weight.
