(FitnessWorld.com) Nike continues to push the limits of innovation and design by debuting its second football cleat built using 3D printing technology: The Nike VaporHyperAgility Cleat. The cleat’s unique plate design uses an amplified, tri-star stud shape enabling maximum speed on turf while creating the optimal traction needed to decelerate and change direction quickly. This ultimately allows athletes to accelerate both linearly and laterally. The HyperAgility cleat pattern, stud placement and overall shape increases surface traction which in turn empowers the athlete to be more aggressive when they cut. By using 3D printing, Nike was able to create fully functional plate and traction system in a fraction of the traditional time frame and at a fraction of the weight.
