There are many different types of property we may be interested in. ) lightness (weight per unit volume) stiffness (low deflection when loaded) fatigue resistance (materials can fail under repeated loading) dampening (particularly under impacting) fracture toughness (particularly against sudden failure) As discussed earlier, in many sporting applications two or even more of these properties are invariably desired. In order then to achieve a satisfactory finished product composites need to be used in combination with clever design, taking into consideration biomechanical requirements to ensure freedom from injury.

G. Etonic's Quasar). Basically all of these solutions attempt to reach a compromise between the several competing requirements of adequate cushioning, flexibility, stiffness and good rebound properties. Encapsulated midsoles This type of midsole construction is generally regarded as the most sophisticated attempt yet to combine adequate cushioning with good energy of rebound. Here the midsole material consists of polyurethane (PU) foam containing encapsulated layers of various other materials. The manufacturing process to achieve this is similar to that of EVA.
