Vibram is introducing a new Vibram Litebase technology which, it says, reduces by up to 30 percent the weight of the outsole without affecting the properties of Vibram's normal soles. The new technology will be tested on a shoe with Vibram's Megagrip compound by the members of the Trailrunning Team Vibram at the Lavaredo Ultratrail, due to be held at Cortina d'Ampezzo, in Northern Italy, from June 22 to 25. Vibram will be the new official sponsor of the race. The finalists will be able to get up to 20 shoes per day refitted with the new sole inside Vibram's Sole Factor truck.
