Z70 Design Notes
RUNNER WEIGHT: The Vimazi Z70 is engineered for average weight runners.
CUSHIONING: We’ve tuned the response density of the FastPod midsoles to provide optimized cushioning for the impact forces you generate at the pace you run. Forget about "max" cushioning for some rando runner in a different pace zone—get optimal cushioning for the way you run.
PROPULSION: We tuned the forefoot FastPods in the Z70 to deliver maximally efficient energy return given the forces needed at this pace to propel yourself forward.
DROP INFO: Runners at this pace are usually average weight and often midfoot to heel strikers. With this in mind, we built a 6mm drop into the Z70. This helps prevent a negative heel drop angle upon impact.
SOLE DESIGN: Rocker design and fortified arch outsole for ideal propulsion. According to a recent paper on arch compression, forces on the arch are greatest during the push-off phase of your stride (not the impact phase). Many shoe designs carve out the arch area, exaggerating pronation. The Z70 fills the arch area to provide support during push-off, precisely when you need it most.
