Peak recently released its own new technology "TAICHI" and adaptive smart running shoes "TAICHI 1.0".
Peak's new cushioning technology "TAICHI" is actually a midsole technology P4U, which has the ability to sense and respond to environmental pressure, and can be changed according to different pressure states.
P4U is made of composite foam through innovative technology, it has "adaptive" properties that traditional materials do not have. In low-speed motion, P4U can provide the wearer with a soft and comfortable wearing experience.
When the wearer's movement speed increases, the P4U changes with the deformation, and the elasticity of the midsole increases, providing the wearer with the rebound and support required for movement.
Simply put, P4U is a composite foam.
When you are walking slowly, there is not much deformation due to the less force on the shoe.
The molecules in the midsole are separated from each other and evenly distributed on the midsole, which makes the midsole softer and provides the wearer with a good foot feel.
When the wearer is exercising at high speed, the foot is subjected to a large force, which causes the deformation of the midsole, and the molecules in the midsole will be squeezed and piled together, rebounding from each other, providing the wearer with a good return. bounce and support.
This is the working principle of "TAICHI". This innovative technology is currently only used in running shoes, that is, this pair of Peak TAICHI 1.0.
