Herzogenaurach, Monday 20th October 2014 – For the first time game-changing adidas Crazylight technology has been brought to the iconic adidas Predator boot. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Predator, the Predator Crazylight is one of the 14 special edition Predator Instinct boots that will be launched during 2014. The boot is part of a new Crazylight Pack, featuring new versions of the Predator, f50, 11pro and Nitrocharge.
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Predator, adidas have already released the Revenge Pack, a heritage set of three Predators based on the original designs of the 1994 Predator, the 1998 Accelerator and the 2002 Mania. With the Crazylight Pack, adidas is bringing ground-breaking lightweight technology to this legendary boot.
Crazylight technology launched in April 2014, with Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale wearing the Crazylight f50 during their successful UEFA Champions League campaign. adidas has dominated the football “lightweight” category since the introduction of the adidas adizero™ f50 in 2010, and that continues with the Crazylight pack. The new Predator Crazylight weighs just 215g, with the f50,11pro and Nitrocharge boots weighing in at 140g, 180g and 225g respectively.
The Predator Crazylight has been designed to combine the complete control of the Predator Instinct with the lightweight technology of the Crazylight range. The boot retains the lethal zone, control pad and pass pad technology of the Predator Instinct while introducing sprintframe technology, which drastically reduces weigh while maintaining the trademark control of the Predator range.
For the f50 and 11pro the adidas Innovation Team developed an innovative next-generation lightweight skin, drastically reducing the weight on the upper part of the boot while still guaranteeing high quality and performance.
The boots have been tested by the best footballers from across the globe, producing a design that will allow them to play faster and better than ever before. For this first time, this state-of-the-art technology has be rolled out across the entire adidas boot range.
