THE INCOMPARABLE COMFORT OF THE NIKE METCON FLYKNIT 3

FLEXIBLE LIKE A SOCK, STABLE BECAUSE THEY ARE METCON

The love of Nike Metcon trainers within the whole crossfit community is unquestionable, but let’s have a look at the advantages of the different models of the Metcon family. What is the difference between the Metcon Flyknit 3 and the classic Metcon? Let's get to the point and ask its designers.

What is the difference between Metcon Flyknit 3 and Metcon 5?

The main difference is, undoubtedly, the elastic boot with a fitting similar to a sock and its Flyknit fabric on the upper, which offers a flexibility which is hardwearing but incomparably light.

Are they less durable?

The extreme lightness makes them look like they could be, but their synthetic coating in the areas with most wear wear (especially around the big toe and lateral areas) makes them really durable.

Does that mean we can't use Flyknits for weight lifting?

No. The Metcon Flyknits incorporate two elements that give them great stability and make them ideal for crossfit training with many movement transitions:

Flywire technology that integrates in the laces at the mid-foot level for a dynamic adjustment that keeps the foot in place without impeding natural movements.

Heel with firm rubber that aids stability under the weight of the bar.

However, when you want to work on your Snatch or Split Jerk technique, we recommend that you use your Metcon 5s or Romaleos.

Where will we notice the advantages of the unmatched flexibility of the Nike Metcon Flyknit?

In all functional training exercises that are based on the natural movements of the body and, therefore, of the foot. Running, jumping, striding, rowing, SkiErg, mountain climbing ... They are the ultimate for high intensity interval training.
