The spikes are 1/4" pyramid spikes that have good traction on dirt tracks, allowing the wearer to pick up and maintain speed during sprints. The spikes generally have good strength and durability. The spike plate has eight slots, with four going across the bottom of the forefoot and the other four going around the outside edges of the forefoot. This pattern gives good power and speed.

Flexibility

The SpeedForm Sprint Pro has good flexibility overall. The spike plate isn't very flexible because it is metal and the spikes have to stay in place. The Pebax plate is very flexible in order to allow easy transitions and a natural gait. The thin EVA foam is also very flexible.
