Top Features of the Flatlines Elastic Laces
- Major benefits of Flatlines elastic laces:
- flat profile for greater comfort - no 'cutting-in'
- elastic material allows for subtle changes in foot shape/size e.g. swelling during activity
- maintains perfect fit for the wearer
- no cumbersome locking devices
- option to be side-fastening
- no tricky knots to tie
- converts lace-ups to slip-ons
- Other benefits of Flatlines elastic laces:
- no untied laces to trip over
- no floppy bows to worry about
- no over-tightening
The secret to Flatlines' outstanding performance lies in the nature of the material, its profile and it's interaction with your shoe's eyelets. While fitting Flatlines to your shoes you will notice it is more difficult to pull through the eyelets than normal laces.
Flatlines grip the eyelets and resists its own movement; effectively producing an adjustable 'strap' between each pairing of eyelets along your shoe. This allows you to custom-fit your shoe to the shape of your foot confident your settings will be maintained.
Once adjusted to your requirements, no subsequent adjustment is necessary - just slip your shoes on and off and experience exactly the same perfect fit every time.
|About Flatlines Elastic Laces|
No more worries about tying and untying knots.
No toggles or cumbersome locking devices to bounce around on your feet!
No floppy bows that could easily come undone causing you to trip.
A flat broader lace provides a larger surface area than cord-style elastic laces. The pressure caused by the tension in your laces is distributed evenly over this area reducing the 'cutting-in' effect.
Micro Adjustable Tension:
The profile of the lace combines with the nature of silicone to engage with your shoe’s eyelets allowing you to micro-adjust the tension in the lace between eyelets and keep it that way run after run.
About the Flatlines brand
Flatlines is a British designed and manufactured product, born from a need to deliver greater comfort from an elastic shoelace. We have used silicone because it is a versatile material being highly durable and soft, it remains unaffected by extreme temperatures and is non-allergenic. Our silicone is engineered to provide the desired amount of elasticity and the necessary amount of support. While testing early prototypes it quickly became apparent that because the lace does not move freely through the eyelets, the tension could be set to varying degrees along the foot. These tensions are then maintained providing a truly custom fit time and time again without any further adjustment. Flatlines were created initially with triathletes and runners in mind but are suitable for anyone wishing to turn their lace-ups into slip-ons. Flatlines have teamed up with Julie Dibens this year. Julie is a former 70.3 and Xterra world champion triathlete and has already won multiple races wearing Flatlines this year; both short- and long-distance events. In Julie’s own words: “Flatlines elastic laces are the best laces I have used to date. They are by far the most comfortable lace system that I have used, which is becoming more and more important to me as I step up the longer distance triathlons. They also are strong enough to give you the support that you need to perform at the highest level.”
