During fall 2019, global athletic leader New Balance launched a breakthrough reimagined product platform, called FuelCell, that was built to power up your run. The design team at New Balance slowed things down, to speed athletes up – taking the time to micro-analyze every 1/10th of a second of an athlete’s biomechanics. The idea was that if New Balance looked at everything in minute detail (data, form, shape, efficiency, custom fit, etc.) and by addressing every aspect, the sum of it all would make the athlete faster. The new 2021 FuelCell line features the highest rebound properties of any New Balance performance foam.
Runners looking for premium technology and speed, built smarter, can turn to the FuelCell line to fire up their run and help improve performance. FuelCell technology was created by the New Balance Innovation Design Studio, used as the fastest, most advanced platform in the NB lineup. FuelCell leads us to the future of running, providing the platform for runners to beat their best time, every time.
