The first black colorway of the new Predator Powerswerve collection, is one of the three new cleats Adidas released as the Champions League Final collection for Rome 2009.
As one of the three cleats in the Champions League edition, the Predator Powerswerve Rome has a hint of the distinctive Cardinal Red in the other two cleats, however it is predominantly lack and gold, symbolizing the Colosseum in Rome. This new colorway has inspired stars such as Dimitar Berbatov of Man United and Kolo Toure of Arsenal to don the new colorway in hopes of reaching Rome in May.
The new Predator Powerswerves feature Predator SMART foam on the strike zone to give extra power, swerve and control. In testing the cleat was found to give 3% more force and 8% more swerve than its predecessor, the 1st Powerswerve.
The foam also adapts and changes to suit the way you kick the ball so you get maximum velocity, or shock absorption, depending on your needs.
The dynamic Power Pulse insole features 40g of â€˜Tungstenâ€™ powder – which shifts and spreads weight in the sole to where you need it, behind the exact place of impact with the ball to get total weight transfer.
Each pair of cleats comes with two insoles – a â€˜powerâ€™ and a â€˜lightweightâ€™ version – so a simple swap allows you to customise your game.
As a final touch to the cleat, Adidas placed a design in the inside of the cleat, featuring the famous Colosseum of Rome.
