adidas 5.10 Introduces the Trailcross XT, The Latest Addition to The Trailcross Family – ‘Ready For Adventure’, No Matter What You Throw Its Way.
The Trailcross range from adidas 5.10 has been designed from the ground up with adventure at its core. Blending the flat pedal performance of Five Ten with the technology of TERREX trail running shoes, the Five Ten Trailcross XT is ‘Ready For Adventure’ no matter what you throw
Five Ten products have been at the forefront of performance mountain bike shoes for over 20 years, continuously developing their product range to meet the growing needs of riders around the world. The capabilities of modern mountain bikes have opened up limitless opportunities for exploration and adventure, both on and off the bike. From hiking and scouting new lines to exploring mountains by foot and bike, adventure knows no boundaries and developing a shoe to meet all the needs of the modern-day was required.
“First and foremost the Trailcross XT, like it’s siblings, is a Five Ten flat pedal shoe, which means it has to deliver the same riding performance that our customers expect. Where the LT is a primarily warm climate shoe, The XT model is designed with all countries and climates in mind. The philosophy of the Trailcross range remains at it’s core, developed to perform as a Five Ten on the bike whilst introducing the performance of TERREX off the bike. Be it hiking with your bike or being able to use the same shoe hiking all day, you should not have to compromise. The new XT model is the ‘All-Rounder’ in the range” – Luke Hontz, Senior Product Manger Five Ten Bike
The adidas TERREX range has been leading the way in trail running and hiking performance footwear, accessing this technology and design became an unrivalled opportunity in the development of the Five Ten Trailcross range. Re-building the original Trailcross with the flat pedal experience of Five Ten allowed for a first, a shoe that performed equally as well off the bike as it does on the bike. The Trailcross XT is the latest addition to this new family of products aimed at the adventure market and ready for whatever you throw it’s way.
With this approach in mind, the Trailcross XT, as with the LT and Mid Pro, was built from the ground up, starting with the Five Ten dotted outsole for flat pedal performance on the bike. This was then refined with hiking in mind, bringing the additional ridged grip to the toe and heel. In addition to the Trailcross LT, the XT has a closed off mesh cuff design allowing for use in more extreme conditions. With the need for the shoe to provide all day comfort but also deliver across the contact points on and off the bike, the mid-sole EVA technology from the TERREX range was slimmed down, providing the necessary comfort without losing the all-important pedal stability. Similar to the Trailcross Mid Pro, the XT utilises a foam backer in the upper construction for added stability. Additionally, the drain ports found in the Trailcross LT model have been closed on the XT to keep debris out.
The Trailcross XT is the latest in a new range of products from adidas 5.10 that meet the growing need for riding performance on the bike and hiking off the bike. The blending of adidas 5.10 and TERREX technologies meets the needs of the modern rider that is ‘ready For Adventure’ no matter the situation. The Trailcross XT is 1 shoe designed for all climates, varying trail use on and off the bike, without compromise.
