I am proud to say that we have finally gained the minutes and seconds as well as the durability and versatility we were looking for.

Swedish sportswear brand Craft launches CTM Ultra Carbon, a new ultra innovative running shoe with excellent durability and grip for various surfaces – destined to break new ground and set new personal records across the world. The shoe has been developed together with world-renowned ultra-runner Tommy Rivs.

“CTM Ultra Carbon is a premium running shoe designed for athletes who demand nothing but the best, ”says Craft’s Product & Marketing Director Daniel Högling.“After having spent the last years in the lab, obsessing over beyond-maximum energy return and the fastest and most aggressive heel-to-toe drop, I am proud to say that we have finally gained the minutes and seconds as well as the durability and versatility we were looking for. Whether you are training for a marathon or competing at extreme distances, this is your shoe.”

CTM Ultra Carbon has been developed together with marathon and ultra-runner Tommy Rivs and combines hyper-lightweight Vault Foam™ with a tuned carbon plate to provide ultimate efficiency and energy return. It also comes with a full-contact rubber traction outsole for optimal durability and traction on various surfaces.

Ultra Carbon Plate™ for a unique trampoline effect
The shoe also features 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.
