September 15, 2022 (press release) –

With its portfolio of advanced and innovative materials, Arkema has been a partner of choice for sports equipment companies for decades.

Earlier in September, the public was able to discover the result of the Group's collaboration with sports equipment designer DECATHLON: the new KD900X performance running shoe from the KIPRUN running brand.

To support its ambitions to develop a top performance running shoe, KIPRUN has turned to Arkema and its Pebax® high performance material, widely appreciated for its lightweight, reactivity and exceptional energy return compared to more traditional materials such as EVA or TPU.

The new KD900X performance running shoe from KIPRUN features Pebax® foam and a carbon plate to deliver speed, and performance over the long haul, as the brand claims a durability of 1,000 kilometers.

We are proud to work with major Sports brands such as Decathlon on the development of innovative footwear and sports equipment, making high performance equipment available to athletes and sports enthusiast across the world. Arkema’s advanced materials represent a unique toolbox for designers and innovators.
