At the top level of rugby, it’s all about those marginal gains. Split seconds that can make the difference between avoiding the tackle and taking contact; millimetres between a match-winning try and failure. Gilbert have developed our fastest rugby boot to date, to maximize those margins for you. Step forward: The KAIZEN 1.0 KN.
Designed for the game changers of rugby that can make chances from nothing and for whom speed is everything, the Kaizen KN rugby boots are our lightest boots yet. Featuring Knitspeed Ultra technology, the Kaizen’s knitted upper offers ultimate fit around the foot, allowing for explosive speed and acceleration.
The welded ribbed technology that forms the boot’s Pro Touch ribbing will give players that kick superb control of the ball, affording you the confidence to place with precision – even under maximum pressure.
Our new Prozone Last adapts to the contours of your foot for comfort, with the brilliantly adaptable lacing system is off-set from the middle of the boot to enable ultimate power and accuracy when kicking the ball.
Highly dynamic rugby players require a boot that can keep up with their athleticism. With the Kaizen rugby boots’ complex multi matrix insole, we have produced a piece of technology that will not only keep up with today’s stars, but improve their flying footwork.
The new PRO-GIL footbed features a 14mm heel raise with arch support and gel insert, delivering extra cushion, dynamic response and maximizing your power transfer; another example of these boots working with players for improved performance. As standard, the Kaizen 1.0 features Prolite 10mm studs. Speed will be of the essence – but with no sacrificing of the control and stability required to perform in wet conditions.
If you are looking to take your game to a new level this season, you need the Kaizen 1.0 KN. Kaizen is the Japanese philosophy of continuous improvement, and with these boots, that’s exactly what you’ll achieve.
