Puma today launched a special edition of Puma Ultra in partnership with Rimac Electric Hypercar Company. Introducing the Puma SL Rimac, the lightest football boot ever to weigh just 90 grams.
Antoine Griezmann has been trained in Puma Ultra SL Rimac boots. He is expected to debut the pitch boots in the UEFA League between France and Croatia in the home town of Rimac, Zagreb, on 14 October.
Rimac Automobili is a Croatian car manufacturer based in Sveta Nedelja, Croatia. Rimac designs and manufactures hybrid sports vehicles, powertrains, and battery systems. It’s famous for its smart supercars.
‘The ULTRA SL aimed to make the quickest, most extreme football boot possible, to provide an insight into how football boots could be built in the future,’ said Dominique Gathier, Head of Product Line Management Teamsport.
‘We looked at how hypercars are designed and transferred to the development of ULTRA SL, with a specific emphasis on how to minimize boot weight while retaining elite performance assets.’
