Canterbury Unveil Purple Speed Infinite Elite Pack

       Canterbury’s lightest boot ever uses high-tech materials and AI-powered design to optimise acceleration and speed

  •       Its unique FLIGHTBEAM sole plate and stud configuration provides stability and explosive power transfer
  •       Foot-hugging futuristic construction maximises comfort and agility, with an out-of-this-world aesthetic inspired by space and nature

Off the back of the launch of the Speed Infinite Elite boot, which at 217 grams, is Canterbury’s lightest rugby boot ever made, they have released a brand new, purple colourway.

Speed Infinite Elite is Canterbury’s most advanced product and draws on the brand’s 119 years of heritage and rugby knowledge, combined with futuristic technology and materials to meet the needs of a modern elite player.

Inspired by the infinite possibilities of the universe, the purple pack joins the already available black variation of the boot in Canterbury’s “LIMITLESS” collection. Speed Infinite Elite is also available in a white and glow-in-the-dark “HYPERNATURE” colourway, inspired by bioluminescence and the power of the South Pacific Ocean.

Taking further inspiration from nature, the FLIGHTBEAM outsole was devised from the shape of a Furcula (or wishbone) and provides extra reinforcement and stiffness, supporting the midfoot and boosting explosivity as you accelerate off the mark.

Produced from a 97% bio-based outsole with Pebax® RNEW® material made from castor bean oil, FLIGHTBEAM reinforces the integrity of the midfoot, allowing explosive energy transfer through acceleration, perfect for the speed-oriented player. 

Using Artificial Intelligence to power its design and strip out unnecessary weight, the Speed Infinite Elite have been inspired by science-pioneer Alan Turing’s Reaction Diffusion Algorithm to apply embroidered stitch reinforcement to targeted areas in the most efficient organic pattern.
