Vibram Arctic Grip S1244 Full Soles
Arctic Grip is a very unique compound. It is designed to provide maximum traction on wet ice area with the blue lugs – the Arctic Grip material.
The other areas of the sole are made with a compound that is called Ice Trek which is designed to help provide traction on dry ice. On each sole, there is a white plug. The white plug will turn blue when the temperature hits zero degrees celsius.
It is IMPERATIVE that repairers not trim much off these soles and that the shoe heel and ball area must sit flat to the surface.
Bonding Arctiv Grip: You will need a urethane adhesive to bond the Arctiv Grip product.
Avoid Trimming into Arctic Grip
