You probably won’t be in the starting blocks alongside Usain Bolt when billions of people watch him attempt to smash his own record, but thanks to Puma’s new Faas 800 trainer, you can take advantage of the technology that makes the world’s fastest athletes even faster.
Developed at Puma’s Faas Lab in Jamaica, the gimmick-free lightweight stability trainer includes a unique ‘catch and release’ system, which guides the foot into a neutral position and leads to a more biomechanically efficient stride. The result? A more natural running rhythm and, ultimately more speed.
