Lovell Rugby today reviews the brand New Predator Rugby RX Colourway. The new White/Black/Gold colourway will be first worn in the Tri-Nations and then The World Cup through into the new Season.
The New Colourway will be worn by Half of Adidas’s Sponsored Predator RX Players. All Blacks and Canterbury Crusaders fly half Dan Carter will wear this colour. The now cult Adidas Predator RX Black/Electricity will still be worn by those who prefer a black based boot like England and Toulon Fly Half Jonny Wilkinson.
The RX Features a Newly developed Taurus full-grain calf leather is featured in the Predator Rugby boot to provide a natural look and great tear and abrasion resistance so that these boots last even longer.
The outsole again features TRAXION SG Hybrid Stud sole system. Meaning the studs will again use the clip in Adidas Traxion studs. This has been done for maximum grip on the field while cutting the weight of the boot down.
The Predator technology has also been perfected so that this soft compound provides unparalleled swerve, control, and accuracy on all of your touches. The Predator Elements have been expanded to around the foot, instead of the prevous model just on the instep. This is the first time the Rugby Predator is different (bar width) to the Football predator. The extra Predator Rubber elements have been strategically placed for extra power and accuracy when kicking the ball. This was done after lots of Feedback from their Top Rugby players.
The boot also features a wider fit than the last model the Predator Rugby X. The width of the RX is the same as the successful Powerswerve model. This is something again Adidas have listened to feedback from both their endorsed players and the public. This combined with the EVA insole which is anatomically moulded so that your foot has the most comfort possible means the best fitting Rugby Predator yet.
The Boots have been given a sneak preview By Harlequins And England Full Back Mike Brown while playing for the England Saxons in the last ever Churchil Cup.
