Developed exclusively for AKU, the new MICHELIN Pulsar Technical soles is the product of a close collaboration between a team of skilled footwear specialists.

MICHELIN Pulsar Technical soles are an all-round high performance product that adapts easily to all kinds of terrain and conditions, making it a real “must have” for outdoor enthusiasts.

The MICHELIN Pulsar sole was developed to accommodate the AKU Elica-Natural Stride System, with an asymmetric design for ground contact (1) in line with the natural stride axis. It takes its inspiration from the MICHELIN Wild Grip’R Descent mountain bike tyre which itself was developed for downhill cycling on mixed terrain, with progressive lateral grip and a motocross-derived tread pattern. All in all, it’s a good test bench for a sole made to tackle all kinds of ground surfaces, something it can accomplish effectively thanks to deep grooves that boost adaptability to very different kinds of terrain (2).

In addition, the sculptures are positioned in irregular groups to focus on the areas of greatest stress. Smaller and more aggressive sculptures under the big toe deliver progressive traction (3), while aggressive shoulder sculptures improve lateral traction and stability (4). Bridge reinforcements also achieve the same for stability and wear resistance (5).

Massive sculptures at the heel boost braking ability (7). A high distance ratio between the sculptures also facilitates selfcleaning (6), while two flexion channels make for greater flexibility when the foot is rolling.
