Tackle the Toughest Terrain With the Reebok ATV 19+

February 19, 2013

Have you ever run on trails and felt like you didn’t have the support and traction you needed to safely navigate the variable terrain? Traditional trail shoes are excellent for running on a well-conditioned trail, but mud, sand or rocks can pose dangerous challenges. Enter the Reebok ATV 19+.

The ATV 19+ is unlike any other shoe you've seen. The traction system, inspired by ATV tires (hence the name), features 19 lugs designed to cut through any terrain. Bill McInnis, vice president of advanced innovation at Reebok, says, “The purpose for those is to dig through the top surface of whatever you are running on—whether it's mud, snow or loose sand—and get through to the lower layer to get some traction."

This show completely changed MMA legend Rampage Jackson's outlook on running. Rampage now looks forward to hitting the trails and cutting through the toughest terrain. He says, “I most definitely didn’t like running until I had these shoes. I can now run for hours.”

Besides the traction system, ATF 19+ designers added several other components to help improve stability over uneven ground. The center pods provide traction for straight-line running, while the side pods function like training wheels on a bike to increase stability when turning or running. “I run on the street, sand hills and mud trails,” says Rampage. “You can step on a log, and you won’t feel off balance.”

The Reebok ATV 19+ is available for $139.98 at Reebok.com. Also, be sure to check out our behind-the-scenes tour of Rampage’s California house and see him running the trails in his ATV 19+ shoes in the video above.
