The Jacket™ transforms the flat pedal riding experience, thanks in part to the
Vibram® MegaGrip™ rubber outsole. This rubber compound was engineered for
exceptional grip for trail riding, dirt jumping and downhilling. Other highlights
include a low-profile upper, an EVA cushioning in the midsole (that helps to
reduce shock) and a Poron® XRD™heel pad that helps minimize the impact of
hard landings and bailouts. With a variety of on-point color options, these shoes
are just as comfortable at happy hour in the Whistler Village as they are bombing

Poron XRD is a soft, shock-absorbing material specifically engineered to absorb up to 90% of impact energy, without a loss of performance from repeated impacts. Poron XRD remains supple and flexible until impacted, when the molecules lock together immediately to deflect and help absorb shock. Other benefits include open cell, breathable performance with antifungal properties, and no use of latex, PVCs, VOCs, or heavy metals.
In many cases, PORON XRD material is also thinner, more flexible and less dense than competitive materials, so you get a more natural feel with less weight and bulk compared to traditional padding!
Vibram® is the world leader in high performance rubber soles, with technologically advanced compounds like IdroGrip, the stickest moldable compound in the Vibram arsenal and developed specifically for flatpedal riding in dry and wet conditions; and Megagrip, a high performance sticky compound with significantly more durability and only a minimal decrease in friction compared to IdroGrip. All Vibram soles are produced with three objectives: to guarantee the best performance, the maximum level of comfort and quality over time.
Aegis ® Microbe Shield
The Aegis Microbe Shield is an anti-microbial barrier that is permanently bonded with the fabric. It uses the power of a tiny positive electrical charge to inhibit the presence of odor-causing microbes that can cause odor, discoloring or fading, so your shoes stay fresh and odor-free.
