Unleash your propulsive potential

ToePilot®


The unique geometry and technical construction of this splint allows the big toe strand in the foot to be more heavily loaded with each step, allowing it to rebuild its natural strength potential for the all-important propulsive phase.

Toefreedom®


The big toe plays a particularly crucial role for runners, as it provides about 85% of stability during running. Conventional running shoe design permanently deforms the toe structure. Our toefreedom® philosophy solves this problem from the first step.

nmblFoam®

The innovative nmblFoam® guarantees a permanently constant energy return and a significantly increased compression set compared to conventional running shoe EVA foams: where others already drop significantly in performance after 200km and are replaced after 500km, the values remain continuously constant until over 1,400km.

Crash Pad


The crash pad is modeled after the natural, rounded shape of the heel bone, introducing a smooth, balanced transition from landing to the propulsive phase.

Gecko Sole-Design


A technology modeled after nature, the Gecko foot. The rubber outsole design allows safe, non-slip running on asphalt.

Over 99% of running shoe manufacturers ignore the potential of the big toe when running, we don't!

The focus of the Pilot 1 is on the relief of the metatarsophalangeal joint. Here, the ToePilot® (patent pending) with its unique geometry deflects the pressure during the rolling process and prevents overloading of the first strand. This technical innovation does not require any stiffening of the sole. The naturally cut, wider toe box provides exceptional comfort during rolling and especially in the propulsive and push-off phase: the big toe can perform its most important function as an anchor and stabilizer without restriction. With this unique feature you counteract the annoying 'runner's hallux'. Thanks to the lacing tunnel, the Pilot 1 sits securely over the instep without constricting. Our midsole made of innovative nmblFoam® lasts up to three times longer than conventional foams with significantly higher resilience values. The crash-pad is modeled after the naturally rounded shape of the heel bone, initiating a smooth, balanced transition from landing to propulsion phase. The innovative PU foam adds a few grams more to the shoe weight, but does exactly what it's supposed to: maximum comfort and relieved push-off during longer runs on asphalt. (“But this doesn’t matter when running, quite the opposite. I run significantly quieter and somehow more smoothly than with my other shoes.” Reader test Runners World Nov.23)
