Following a prototype last summer, adidas has announced that the Agravic Speed Ultra is now available.

The company, working alongside students at the University of Salzburg in Austria, identified the importance of downhill sections for performance in trail running ultramarathons. These findings were instrumental in the development of the shoe, which combines three elements: the LIGHTSTRIKE PRO foam which absorbs energy, Energy Rods, which push the runner with every step and the newly-introduced dynamic rocker geometry which enables smooth and efficient forefoot running on the trails.

Also joining the Agravic family is the Agravic Speed. Featuring a light construction, the shoe is built for speed on medium trail races up to 50km.

To mark the launch of the Agravic family, adidas TERREX is giving people the chance to take part in a mentorship program with Team TERREX. This will see them get access to personalized coaching sessions, led by trail runners and coaches Corrine Malcom and Eric LiPuma alongside one-on-one tailored support, access to Team TERREX sports psychologists, and more.

Six trail runners who crack the 500-metre mark on the adidas TERREX Strava challenge – launching on April 8 – and are the winners of a raffle, will start their mentorship experience in June. It will culminate with a race at adidas TERREX Infinite Trails in Bad Hofgastein, Austria, in September 2024. They will also receive a complete running outfit, including a pair of the Agravic Speed Ultra.

The Agravic Speed Ultra and Agravic Speed are available on, on the adidas app and in selected retail.
