Discover Taikan (Reebok) – A new way to run

December 13, 2009

Japan Triathlon is proud to introduce you Reebok’s brand new running shoe, the Taikan. More than just a sneaker, Reebok innovates once again and re-invent the way we run.

The Taikan was invented by Tetsuhido Kin and designed to help runners build more endurance by using their core body. By keeping your body into a more forward position, the Taikan shoe helps keeping your momentum as you run and also reduces considerably the impact and force absorbed by your legs each time your foot hits the ground.

Both your new running form and the decreased amount of shocks onto your joints will allow you to jog more efficiently, spend fewer calories during each training sessions / races (comparing to other standard running shoes), and consequently increase your stamina during longer runs.

For example, Reebok explains us that when a standard shoe would take you to 1.6K for 200 calories burnt, the Taikan would help you increase that distance to approximately 2K for the same caloric expense.

Taikan currently offers 3 types of models:

Taikan KR:
