Canterbury unveil brand new purple colourway Speed Infinite Elite boots

Purple magic.

Off the back of the launch of the Speed Infinite Elite boot, which at 217 grams, is Canterbury’s lightest rugby boot ever made, they have released a brand new, purple colourway – and we’re in love with them!

Speed Infinite Elite is Canterbury’s most advanced product and draws on the brand’s 119 years of heritage and rugby knowledge, combined with futuristic technology and materials to meet the needs of a modern elite player.

Inspired by the infinite possibilities of the universe, the purple pack joins the already available black variation of the boot in Canterbury’s “LIMITLESS” collection. Speed Infinite Elite is also available in a white and glow-in-the-dark “HYPERNATURE” colourway, inspired by bioluminescence and the power of the South Pacific Ocean.

Taking further inspiration from nature, the FLIGHTBEAM outsole was devised from the shape of a Furcula (or wishbone) and provides extra reinforcement and stiffness, supporting the midfoot and boosting explosivity as you accelerate off the mark.

Ireland international and Canterbury Ambassador, Mack Hansen pictured pitch testing the new purple Speed Infinite Elite rugby boot.

Produced from a 97% bio-based outsole with Pebax® RNEW® material made from castor bean oil, FLIGHTBEAM reinforces the integrity of the midfoot, allowing explosive energy transfer through acceleration, perfect for the speed-oriented player.

Using Artificial Intelligence to power its design and strip out unnecessary weight, the Speed Infinite Elite have been inspired by science pioneer Alan Turing’s Reaction-Diffusion Algorithm to apply embroidered stitch reinforcement to targeted areas in the most efficient organic pattern.

We got our hands on a pair this week and they are a serious pair of boots! Lightweight, comfortable, and pretty slick looking. Plus, if they’re good enough for Mack Hansen – that’s the only seal of approval you need.

Soft and firm ground versions of the Speed Infinite Elite are available from priced at £140
