- Elica Tech
An integrated system involving 3 different parts in the sole and midsole to accurately follow the shape of the foots sole and fit to the normal heel and forefoot inclination to reduce impact and tension. Laboratory tests have proven that Elica footwear guarantees a more uniform pressure distribution across the foot compared to traditional footwear.
- Performance Fit
The wrapping fit and durability of mountaineering and hiking models guarantee the necessary precision and sensitivity for climbing over ice and rocks.
The GORE-TEX membrane is an exclusive technical insulating material that contains around 1.4 billion microscopic pores per square centimetre. These pores are approximately 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water, but 700 times larger than a water vapour molecule. That way, water drops cant penetrate the membrane and water vapour can escape easily. GORE-TEX has designed 3 specific types of membrane for the footwear industry, each with specific functions.
- Vibram sole
Most of the AKU collection uses exclusive Vibram soles, both for the design and the specific shape of the sole, as well as the leather used in their making. The outsole is also designed for the specific needs and end use of the shoes. They have designed 3 different types of sole for mountain, trekking and active that have a particular abrasion-resistance.
- Air 8000
The first of two systems developed by AKU to guarantee a high level of shoe breathability. Its a specially-made technical material that increases breathability over 24 hours by over 11 times when compared to conventionally-made material.
This is an AKU solution used on many of the brands high technology models. A new architecture to guarantee protection and stability only where needed, without compromising on the light weight. The Exoskeleton technology is used in the sole; the midsole is made from a lightweight polyurethane external skeleton that rises at the back and envelops the heel to protect it and bring stability when walking. The asymmetric structure, with a wider inside and an increase in polyurethane in the centre, offers support and pronation support.
- Internal Midsole System
An exclusive technology used in the AKU footbed base construction. It unites the traditional nylon support structure with a layer of microporous material. This system enables the sole to fit perfectly to the shape of the foot, guaranteeing an even distribution of impact for excellent comfort.
