New Runners from Avia: Avi-Bolt II and Avi Stoltz

January 6, 2009

Looks like Avia is continuing to push the limits of their running shoe lineup with a couple of new treads. Both the Avi-Bolt II racing flats and Avi Stoltz trail runners are new for 2009 and were built under the direction of the three-time XTERRA World Champion, Conrad Stoltz. With direction from "the man" combined with the valuable feedback from the entire Avia XTERRA team, these two new shoes should hit the mark. Here's a little more info on each shoe. About the 2009 Avia Avi Stoltz The launch of the new AVI-STOLTZ is the first-ever XTERRA specific racing shoe in the AVIA collection. The non-traditional trail running shoe can handle all the rigors of off-road racing, is triathlon friendly and race ready. The AVI-STOLTZ features ESS-ROCKSTEADY PLATE technology which provides flexibility while preventing injury from uneven surfaces, an aggressive outsole and traction design for efficient sand running, and superior stability, cushioning and shock absorption. The one-of-a-kind shoe also boasts a gusseted tongue and breathable air mesh upper with protective monofilament top layer to keep the grit out while stretch tabs expedite foot entry. About the 2009 Avia Avi-Bolt II This high-performance racing flat, also co-developed by Stoltz, comes equipped with a lightweight air mesh upper and compression molded lightweight EVA midsole. AVIA CANTILEVER technology in the heel works to soften impact, stabilize the heel and provide increased energy return. Additionally, DURA-RYD in the heel strike area provides superior cushioning while DURA-STRYK high-abrasion carbon rubber increases outsole durability. The AVI-GRIP quick entry system helps expedite foot entry while a speed lacing design allows for faster transitions. Both the AVI-STOLTZ and AVI-BOLT II will be available for men and women beginning April 2009 with a retail price of $110 and $100 respectively. More Info: Visit
