Air Ball Concept (ABC)

Hi-Tec’s breakthrough ABC – Air Ball Concept – sole brought a patented pressurised cylinder seated in the heel of the shoe, delivering the best form of air support available and putting Hi-Tec far ahead of its time in 1989.

​The concertina design of the cylinder allows maximum compression on impact; this provides not only outstanding shock absorption, but also positions the heel to ensure optimum motion control and energy return. The Air Ball Concept is a proven technology in many sports like squash, tennis basketball and running.
