With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, everyone is looking for every single opportunity to go faster speed and increase athletic performance to be the next record breaker.
On the track or on the road, Nike has introduced an innovative system to give athletes the breaking edge in running.
The NEXT% platform is the ultimate expression of Nike’s ambition to engineer footwear with measurable performance benefit.
NEXT% is all about creating more efficient intersections between the body and technology to enable athletes to shatter personal boundaries — and sometimes, as our athletes have shown, break records. It is the ultimate meeting of sports science and purposeful design.
Informed by sport science and verified by the Nike Sport Research Lab, the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% features three critical components, working together to help runners on race day:
- Full-length Carbon Fiber Plate: Provides stability and a smooth transition; increases stiffness in the forefoot to provide a sensation of propulsion.
- Nike ZoomX Cushioning: Lightweight, provides optimal energy return, minimizes energy loss.
- Nike Zoom Air Pods: Added cushioning, increased energy return.
The Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT%, Nike Air Zoom Tempo NEXT% and Nike Air Zoom Tempo NEXT% FlyEase give athletes of today an opportunity to stamp their mark and motivate athletes (and designers) of tomorrow to set even greater goals.
