EVOLV and the TRAX Rubber Company proudly introduce eco-TRAX.
eco-Trax is a high friction rubber compound containing around around 30% recycled content. EVOLV are the first rockshoe company to use a more environmentally friendly rubber compound on their shoes. The technology comes from decomposing selective pre and post consumer rubber waste and reprocessing it to make a usable compound.
Currently 30% of the eco-TRAX compound used on selected parts of the outsoles is recycled material but we plan to use a higher recycled percent compound on applications that don't require maximum friction.
On rock shoes we use regular XT5 rubber on the front of the sole unit, with eco-TRAX on the back and rand areas. The sole unit is created by co-molding the two rubbers.
