On a Mission Solo 2f traction pads are rider designed, tested and approved with thinnest, lightest, grippiest EVA. The Diamond Grid pattern consists of tiny 1/8" thick squares which rest on top of diamond shaped foundations. And the Eva arch bar acts as a support mechanism for your back foot. Can't forget the Rolled Tail Kick - All of OAM kicks slant at a 115 degree angle to provide optimum resistance for back foot pressure. OAM is the originator of rolling grid surface over the kick, leaving a clean, finished look.
