Nike announce release date of ‘Metcon 5 Mat Fraser‘. It’s outer construction is the haptic chain-link pattern on the upper can better withstand the abuse of rope climbs. The tongue has more cushioning for better support and lock-down.. A directional pattern on the rope wrap provides exceptional grip (or catch) during rope climbs and allows for a smoother slide during descents. The peak is also higher, so there’s more surface area to provide grip and durability.
A wider heel improves stability during heavy squats, snatches, cleans and shoulder-to-overhead movements. A Nike Hyperlift insert gives an additional 8mm lift for men and 6mm for women to further improve stability. The higher offset helps you to maintain heel-to-ground contact and balance, which can create strong stability during heavy lifts as well as high-rep squats, wall balls, thrusters and even rowing.
