A new standard in ultra-distance running for elite athletes, CTM Ultra Carbon running shoe combines hyper-lightweight Vault Foam™ with a tuned carbon plate for the ultimate in efficiency and energy return. It also features a full-contact rubber traction outsole that delivers best-in-class durability and traction. Whether you are training for a marathon or competing at extreme distances, this is your shoe.
Having spent the last years in the lab, obsessing over beyond-maximum energy return and the fastest and most aggressive heel-to-toe drop, we have finally gained the minutes and seconds we were looking for. Since there are no shortcuts to the top of the world, CTM Ultra Carbon stands on a platform of front-line engineering and relentless testing, in the lab and on the road.
A multi-layered ultra-everything experience.
CTM Ultra Carbon touches the ground with a full-contact rubber traction outsole. The energy return and take-off build through the Ultra Platform™, the tuned Ultra Carbon Plate™ and the hyper-springy popcorn-foamed Ultra Insole™. The high-caliber composition is then topped off with the one-piece fully engineered mesh Ultra Upper™. Five cutting-edge layers in unison for one Ultra experience.
Ultra Platform™ is the ultra-lightweight foundation on which we build our Ultra series running shoes. The platform includes a perfect balance between stack height, drop and foot angle to enable runners to keep form as effortlessly as possible, which is essential when you want to run fast during a sustained period of time. Introducing an innovative carbon plate with precision split at front, Ultra Platform™ delivers energy return also during turns and on uneven ground. And featuring a traction outsole that works well on all types of surfaces, the platform offers the unique opportunity to conquer ultra trail marathons at high speed.
Vault Foam™ is a lightweight and durable midsole foam that delivers consistent propulsion over a long period of time. This EVA-based foam adds a unique chemical compound for enhanced rebound and durability. Fast, light and long-lasting are the main characteristics of this high-quality midsole foam.
Anatomic Racing Fit
The Ultra running shoes combine a tight and secure fit around the foot with an anatomic toe box. The result is a running shoe that fits like a glove for maximum power transmission during intense racing and at the same time allows your toes to spread out for optimal comfort and a more natural stride.
Ultra Carbon Plate™
Our most advanced running shoes feature the highly innovative Ultra Carbon Plate™. Made of carefully sourced carbon fiber, this thin plate works almost like a trampoline, offering best-in-class energy return. In addition, the tuned carbon plate comes with a precision split, allowing the big toe to press independently on the medial side of the plate and the other toes on the lateral side – which creates torsion to provide ultra-rebound on varying surfaces and angles.
Ultra Trac Outsole™
The Ultra Trac Outsole™ is a 3-piece lugged traction rubber outsole capable on roads or light trail surfaces and in varying climate conditions. Both landing and toe-off traction are enhanced with engineered lug shape and configuration, and grip on varied surfaces is elevated with our specially formulated rubber compound. This outsole is designed to be lightweight, flexible and to provide versatile traction solutions while maintaining excellent durability.
