Ale Santuz: Omni-Lite ceramic track spikes                                                  

Omni-Lite ceramic track spikes

Not for publicity, but just for real passion and interest (after all I am an Aerospace Engineer) I publish the whole text found HERE about the state of the art in ultra-light Athletics track spikes. Here we particularly talk about ceramic technology: a solution that can reduce the weight of the old steel spikes with a high corrosion resistance of the material at the same time. And they are cheap, too! Just try and see!

Ultra-Lite Ceramic Track Spikes

Omni-Lite's track spikes are standard features in the track shoes designed and manufactured by the world's leading athletic shoe manufacturers including Nike, Adidas, Reebok, Puma, and New Balance. Omni-Lite's space-age ceramic track spikes were utilized by athletes who won over 40 gold medals in the summer Olympics in Atlanta, Sydney, Athens, and Beijing.
