07-Aug-08
Claimed as the lightest and the strongest spikes ever, the newly built Zoom Victory Spikes to be used by the American track and field athletes at the Beijing Olympics employed Vectran® fiber manufactured by Kuraray America. Kuraray's Vectran® fibre is a high-performance multifilament yarn spun from liquid crystal polymer has quarter of the diameter of a human hair and is five times stronger than steel, forms a key component of the new Flywire technology. Vectran fiber's tensile strength coupled with light weight and flexibility, enabled Nike to design the lightest weight (93 grams), without compromising on durability, integrity or support.
