THE PROBLEM

WE ARE ALL TAUGHT HOW TO WALK, BUT DO WE KNOW HOW TO RUN?

Most runners don’t start with lessons on technique, they simply place one foot in front of the other and start running. The trouble is, many of us learn to run by landing on our heels, meaning shock is absorbed by the back of the foot and transferred up into the body through the leg. ‘Heel strike’ leads to poor running posture, joint pains, injuries, and sometimes irreversible trauma.

All of this leads to slower run times and unnecessary pains. A better way is possible.

"I know a number of trail runners that moved too fast to a lower drop, without advice.

The intention is good, but this transition is often made way too brutal! With CimAlp’s running shoes, there is finally a way to gradually evolve to a better stride without the risk of injury.

I find this concept really innovative: this first progressive drop trail shoe improves both health and performance.

I recommend the 864 Drop Control to all trail runners that want to move to a more natural stride without injury. I love this concept that really allows you to live a new experience at your own pace!"

"I have lost count of the number of injuries I have seen due to poor running shoes, and most of my patients underestimate the importance of running technique on our body.

CimAlp finally proposes an innovative, progressive and relevant response to the traumas of running.
In essence, the trail causes shocks to the body, joints and muscle chains.

We must all do our utmost to reduce these impacts and move towards a more natural stride.

The 864 Drop Control is a great way to gradually support your goal of a more natural running technique, which will help you run better and for a long time!"
