IceBug is one of several premium quality shoe brands that we carry, but it’s specifically known for its innovative traction technologies. If you want a shoe that can practically guarantee to prevent slips and falls, IceBug is the shoe brand for you. Just take a look at their unique traction solutions.
The OLX system uses carbide steel studs, which are six to seven times harder than normal steel. These studs are nearly impossible to wear out! The OLX system makes these shoes perfect for trail running, even in slippery conditions. The OLX system uses fixed studs, unlike the BUGrip system, which has studs that adjust to the surface. The benefit is that the studs are always exposed, which allows for a thinner sole, thereby decreasing the overall weight of the shoe.
The RB9X is the latest in rubber compound developments from IceBug. There’s nothing else like it on the market today. It has the durability of an asphalt running shoe, but it provides more friction than any of its competitors. It’s lightweight enough to be perfect for running, yet it provides a superior level of traction, which makes it perfect for asphalt running even in wet and slippery conditions.
The BUGrip system was designed for use under the most slippery conditions. This innovative system uses a sole made out of a special rubber compound and has 15 to 19 integrated steel studs. It’s the design of these studs that makes the BUGrip system so unique. The studs adjust independently from each other. This means that each individual stud will push in towards the surface of the sole depending on the amount of pressure exerted by the user and/or the resistance from the ground. The ability of the studs to adjust to the surface gives this shoe the best possible traction on any surface, from dry asphalt to solid ice.
The BUGweb system is actually an optional traction device that is compatible with some of IceBug’s footwear. The BUGweb consists of a compatible outsole and a traction unit that fits into a special sole pattern on some of IceBug’s footwear. This system allows you to literally add extra traction to your shoe when it’s needed and remove it when it’s not.
