The lacing system is integrated with the upper, through eyelets sewn on the inner elastic fabrics and reinforcements in hard plastic on the outer mesh: this system allows the distribution of the tension of the lacing on the whole upper for maximum comfort.Ultra Raptor Mid II GTX is also available in a comfort version wide-fit, for runners with wider feet. The result is an ultrarunning shoe that can be worn for several hours and is suitable for off-road running on any terrain. Raptorize yourself, again.

EVA – INJECTED
Higher degree of cushoning and high elasticity of the fabric. These features assist “push off” during the propulsion phase while running, making these models who use injected midsoles, ideal for use on off-road trails. Furthermore, EVA Injected midsole drastically reduce the “squash” effect of the EVA over time, allowing the product to mantain the same features for its entire duration.
The unique, flexible construction reduces weight and creates fewer pressure points, and an extremely comfortable fit and feel, so you can keep going - and going. Reliable waterproof protection means your feet stay dry, from summer showers to icy winter puddles. Perfect for short jogs or long-distance races. Moisture vapor from sweat can escape easily, so you stay comfortable-even when you are going hard. The membrane is invisibly integrated into the shoe, the lightweight construction is designed to disappear.
Impact Brake System
Created and developed by the R&D department at La Sportiva, it offers real advantages during racing by reducing negative ground impact. The unique position of the lugs allows as many of them as possible to come into contact with the ground, for maximum impact absorption.
