Combining the best of two worlds, comfort and traction, Arcus RB9X™ is the perfect shoe for long summer runs on gravel roads and light trails.
Or maybe a quick walk if that’s what the day has to offer.
The outsole is made by our most advanced rubber, RB9X™, which in combination with a unique cleat pattern gives great traction on wet stones and rocks.
In addition to this Arcus is equipped with our most comfortable midsole, where a combination between lightweight and BLOOM® Foam gives great cushioning and energy return.
The last has a roomy toe box and the upper a highly breathable mesh, both being desirable features on long summer days out in the sun.

RB9X® – Rubber 9 Extreme is our latest rubber compound development, and it sets a new standard in providing friction.
Lab tests (SATRA) show that RB9X® outgrips the competition, but still matches the durability of an asphalt running shoe.
In the real world, that means much more reliable traction in wet and slippery conditions and on challenging surfaces like rocks.– RB9X is definitely a benefit for extremely demanding runners with high expectations on the shoes traction in mixed and tough terrain.
RB9X is a new compound and tests show that we really have succeeded.
There’s nothing like this on the market, says Erik Öhlund, member of the Product development team at Icebug and an elite orienteerer.
