ECCO unveils BIOM Hybrid 2 and BIOM G2

BIOM Hybrid 2

ECCO has launched BIOM Hybrid 2, the next-generation of its best-selling style showcasing patented NATURAL MOTION technology and built atop the award-winning E-DTS outsole.

Premiering for Spring/Summer 2015, BIOM Hybrid 2 is slated to be worn in competition by Tour star Fred Couples and other ECCO Golf staff players. It is 15% lighter than the original model thanks to an extra-thin midsole that helps bring players closer to the playing surface.

This is complemented by a dual-density TPU outsole. Two-coloured to create an inspiring aesthetic, it is harder in areas that need the most stability and softer in key comfort zones.

“We’ve taken what many have declared the world’s most comfortable golf shoe and made it even better,” says Michael Waack, Head of Global Golf at ECCO. “That we can do this is a testament to our skill as shoemakers and the drive that pushes us to pioneer new innovations season after season.”

Like all ECCO golf shoes, BIOM Hybrid 2 is created using the advanced Direct-injection Process. This bonds the upper and outsole unit, creating a one-piece shoe construction without the use of glue or stitching. Benefits include an exceptionally water-tight seal, outstanding flexibility and out-of-the-box comfort.

Additional features of BIOM Hybrid 2 include:

  • Weather Resistance – Naturally soft, breathable and strong yak leather uppers are treated with HYDROMAX and an anti-stain formula for superb protection from the elements
  • Anatomical Last Shape – Developed by scanning the feet of 2,500 athletes to provide ideal levels of support
  • Tour-Proven Traction – Constructed from TPU – a highly durable, wear-resistant material – the molded traction bars offer hundreds of traction angles for superb grip
  • Technical Insole System – A new, ultra-premium insole with silicon printing helps prevent unwanted foot movement during the swing

Price: £170

BIOM G2 

Nearly 20% lighter than previous ECCO offerings, BIOM G2 is available in waterproof GORE-TEX and weather-resistant HYDROMAX options.

Each pair showcases a variety of new performance elements that enhance flexibility, support, comfort and traction. These notably include a visible carbon fiber stability bar running heel to mid-foot and an integrated forefoot stability bar.

“Innovation informs everything we do at ECCO,” says Michael Waack, Head of Global Golf at ECCO.

“The result of this unquenchable thirst for perfection is a golf collection that continues to evolve, as witnessed by the latest advancement of our award-winning BIOM Golf model.”

BIOM G2 is further distinguished by premium yak leather uppers accented with TPU reinforcement dots. These contribute support during weight transfer associated with the swing. Additional features include:

  • Anatomical Last Shape – Developed by scanning the feet of 2,500 athletes to provide ideal levels of support
  • Outstanding Ground Control – Thinner midsole bringing players closer to the playing surface
  • Technical Insole System – A new, ultra-premium insole with silicon printing helps prevent unwanted foot movement during the swing
  • Tour-Proven Traction – The advanced SLIM-Lok Fitting System by CHAMP Spikes

Like all ECCO golf shoes, BIOM G2 is created using the advanced Direct-injection Process. This bonds the upper and outsole unit, creating a one-piece shoe construction without the use of glue or stitching. Benefits include an exceptionally water-tight seal, outstanding flexibility and out-of-the-box comfort.

The ECCO men’s golf collection is endorsed by scores of Tour stars worldwide, including Fred Couples, Ernie Els, Graeme McDowell, Thomas Bjørn, Thongchai Jaidee, Marcel Siem, Andreas Hartø, Wu Ashun, Will Wilcox and JB Hansen.

Price: HYDROMAX £210, GORE-TEX £225
