XH-Series – Hybrid | Demanding Less Aggressive Sports Fit
XH-Series features a self-forming TAPERED Round Knot design, created for the less extreme but still demanding applications. Less aggressive TAPERED (Hybrid) Knot design makes lacing-up and compression tuning easier than X-Series, requires only a single directional pull to reduce the blocking knots.
XH200 Series services eyelet diameter sizes (from 2.5 to 3.5 mm). Depending on the diameter of the eyelets this lace may need to have a square knots tied at the ends. However it is not necessary to untie to take shoes on and off. The tapered knots will maintain your desired comfort level.
To lace and adjust XH-Series:
TAPERED Round Knots will pass through an eyelet when sufficiently stretched to reduce the blocking knot diameter, select the desired compression index* then release to set, repeat the fitting process at each eyelet to set a radial compression footwear fit.
*Compression Index (number of knots set between eyelets)
- Less knots between eyelets = Tightens fit.
- More knots between eyelets = Loosens fit.
Caution: Xtenex Laces feature a strong elastic core to ensure a secure, stable fit you can rely on. Please use caution when installing or stretching the laces to prevent the lace from whipping back and causing injury.
