Aggressive, next-generation design delivers maximum performance and power to support high-speed golf swings
CARLSBAD, CALIF. (January 10, 2012) – adidas Golf, an industry leader in footwear innovation and performance technologies, is launching the next generation of its most powerful footwear – the POWERBAND 4.0, catering to those seeking enhanced stability, leverage, and balance control.
The POWERBAND franchise has always been about eliminating power leaks and for its ability to help golfers of all levels better transfer their power from back-swing back to the ball at impact. The key is an energy-harnessing foundation called a POWERBAND CHASSIS, which provides extraordinary lateral stability from the ground up to allow for faster, more aggressive golf swings and a stretch resistant synthetic overlay for added stability and durability . The POWERBAND 4.0 allows athletes to gain greater control, agility and leverage at the ground level encouraging speed and stability throughout the golf swing.
“There’s no better way to support golf’s growing power game than by advancing golf’s most powerful shoe,” said Bill Price, Sr. Director of Global Footwear. “The POWERBAND 4.0 provokes confidence because it delivers the support and stability aggressive golfers need – and does so at a tour-proven level.”
Complementing the POWERBAND CHASSIS is adidas Golf’s FitFOAMTM insole for ever-lasting cushioning and a TPU forefoot with 8-spike configuration with THINTECHTM low-profile technology for improved traction and stability. The upper features full-grain leather with detailed synthetic overlays for added stability and durability.
POWERBAND 4.0 is offered in medium and wide widths, carries a ClimaProof® two-year waterproof warranty, and is available in a choice of three colorways: White / Black / Metallic Silver, Black / Black / White, and White / Slime / Black.
Available at retail on January 1, 2012 with an MSRP of $150 USD.
