Pelé Sports – the new global football brand from soccer legend, Pelé – has unveiled a ground breaking football boot for SS 2012, the result of years of ergonomic research and footwork analysis. For the first time ever, the ultra light Trinity 3E boot has harnessed the ability to perform a dual task: maximising a player’s game & speed potential and actually training your muscles as you play. This has been achieved through extensive research and testing as well as a combination of lightweight materials, unique support and innovative stud geometry.
At Pelé Sports, the design team call this “tackling the 3rd element” and believe it to be evolutionary in the approach to football design. With an average of 2.7 injuries per team worldwide, Pelé Sports were focused to place injury protection and propulsion performance at the heart of their design mission.
Studies from the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany show at a very high statistical significance level (p<0.01) that the Trinity 3E Allows significantly faster movements when compared to other high performance speed boot products on the market.
Professor Ewald Hennig Head of the university’s Biomechanics Laboratory, stated that; “The boot gives the player the advantage in a small or tight space scenario, allowing players to be 40cm closer to the ball in a kicking action. For longer manoeuvres, players can have an advantage of being up to 1.5 metres closer to the ball on the field.”
“I was surprised to find this clear advantage against other top level boots in this similar speed category. The strength of the Trinity 3E was especially apparent in cutting manoeuvres, which is probably the most important action in football.”
The statistical power of this study suggests that even if it were repeated 100 + times, the boot would still yield the same result 99 times out of 100.
LIGHTEST WEIGHT MATERIALS
The Pelé Sports team worked with Formula One Engineers to strip away unnecessary weight & structure within conventional boot design. Despite extremely low weight characteristics (170 grams), all Trinity 3E materials were selected for maximum durability:
The outsole is created from a futuristic hybrid of fibre reinforced lightweight polymers. It is a dual density polymer created through molecular manipulation and results in optimised rigidity directly aligned to the biomechanics of the foot.
The new generation speed upper Symbioskin™ is a tri-laminate material designed specifically for the Trinity 3E.
3 unique elements individually sculpt around the players allowing exceptional feel and command of the ball.
UNIQUE STUD GEOMETRY
The unique asymmetrical stud geometry (patent pending) harnesses the natural mid foot motion, ensuring the earliest possible force generation and accelerating your rapid response rate! Quite different from most boots designed today who offer a symmetrical stud solution even though the natural movement of the foot is asymmetrical. The extreme position of the rear tripod studs trigger earlier ground contact and stability with high velocity release and the forefoot studs permit excellent traction and explosive acceleration. The studs work cohesively to distribute foot pressures and improve grip as the foot flexes and rolls naturally through 3D simultaneously. The out-plate is specifically designed to resist rolling over of the ankle – a factor for the most common injury suffered in football today.
At the heart of the Trinity 3E’s stud technology, the Pelé Sports design team focused on the heel of the foot. This most sensitive tactile area under foot has been harnessed as an input to trigger early muscle activity for higher speed and agility movements.
The team designed an asymmetrical cleat that activates fast muscular reactions, which in turn trains fast foot speed & coordination.
This unique boot design naturally increases muscle stimulation and faster acceleration as it gets you in and out of the ground quicker.
The Pelé Sports Trinity 3E is a boot that allows players to respond faster, play harder and win in the true style of The Beautiful Revolution – the heart & passion of the Pelé Sports brand – inspired by Pelé and shared by every other football player in the world, no matter where they come from or where they play.
