Great attention has been paid to consistently developing the HighPerformance 2.5. Test results and the experience of Achim Heukemes over the course of various international ultramarathons and cross-continental races have resulted in a considerable increase in the comfort and durability of the shoe.
Particular attention was paid to the runner being seen clearly at dusk or in the dark.
The network of reflectors covering the entire shoe works like a giant cat’s eye: if light from a vehicle’s headlamps falls onto the shoe, you cannot miss the runner.
The lacing system of the HighPerformance 2.0 means the shoe fits your foot perfectly, taking both a high instep and a flatter instep into consideration. The more solid shaft also offers more support for the runner and ensures a snug fit.
The breathable uppers ensure that superfluous warmth and moisture are quickly channelled away from the foot to the outside.
To ensure you do not lose contact with the floor and have sufficient grip on every terrain, BÄR developed special triangular-shaped elements. The advantage: outstanding traction and good self-cleaning soles on all surfaces.
Snug fit thanks to the TPU midfoot chassis. The chassis offers support for the arch and stability for the whole foot.
The generous toe zone of the HighPerformance 2.5 is as unique as it is innovative in the running shoe sector and has been a central component of the BÄR philosophy for 25 years.
Grooves for maximum shock absorption absorb a large proportion of the force of impact when the shoe hits the ground.
The Endurance sole with triangular-shaped elements is a BÄR innovation. The lightweight PU combined with a sturdy TPU chassis mean this shoe is highly flexible whilst at the same time ensuring a snug fit to make sure you do not go over on your ankle when walking. The individual components of the sole are put together by hand.
