adidas officially unveiled their miCoach SPEED CELL today in New York City. The miCoach SPEED CELL is designed to monitor, evaluate and increase performance of athletes across multiple sports including soccer, football, basketball, tennis and running. The miCoach SPEED CELL sits inside a specially designed cavity in the outsole of adidas footwear to work seamlessly with the athlete’s equipment.
