Laboratory tests certify that footwear with Elica, compared to traditional footwear, guarantees a more even distribution of foot pressure.
The tests highlight: 
- a more even distribution of pressure during the entire stance phase
- a more central load at mid stance
- better arch support during midstance and lower pressure during the toe-off phase.
Heel Strike
The insole board is inclined outwards to support heel strike, while in the external heel area the shock absorber is thicker in order to better absorb the impact. The asymmetric tread design aligned with the axis of stance and the elongated lugs increase the contact surface area.
The insole board is inclined to support the natural toe-off. The internal front part of the midsole consists of shock-absorbing material to distribute the push-off force. The lugs on the tread located on the inner part of the shoe are protruding outwards to increase the contact surface area
The MICHELIN Pulsar sole was developed to accommodate the Aku Elica-Natural Stride System, with an asymmetric design for ground contact (1) in line with the natural stride axis. It takes its inspiration from the MICHELIN Wild Grip’R Descent mountain bike tyre which itself was developed for downhill cycling on mixed terrain, with progressive lateral grip and a motocross-derived tread pattern.
All in all, it’s a good test bench for a sole made to tackle all kinds of ground surfaces, something it can accomplish effectively thanks to deep grooves that boost adaptability to very different kinds of terrain (2).
In addition, the sculptures are positioned in irregular groups to focus on the areas of greatest stress. Smaller and more aggressive sculptures under the big toe deliver progressive traction (3), while aggressive shoulder sculptures improve lateral traction and stability (4).
Bridge reinforcements also achieve the same for stability and wear resistance (5).
Massive sculptures at the heel boost braking ability (7).
A high distance ratio between the sculptures also facilitates selfcleaning (6), while two flexion channels make for greater flexibility when the foot is rolling
