Strengths: Flexible shoe with excellent lightweight, ventilated uppers and good cushioning right where one needs it as a mid foot striker. Sole provides good levels of grip in both dry and wet conditions and even copes with recent hard frosts well Excellent fit straight out of the box on my comparatively narrow feet with a high instep with absolute comfort displayed over all distances.
Weaknesses: Two very minor ones - the tongue could do with fractionally more cushioning and the colour trim is a bit bright - but they soon dirty!
Overall: I am a +6 foot, 14 stone, mid foot strike runner running 50+ miles/week and these provide all the cushioning I need within what feels like a very lightweight, performance shoe. Noticable improvement on the previous models which I have used for several years and which I had highly regarded previously
'MANY EXCELLENT AIDS TO TRAINING WITH MINOR IRRITATIONS'
Strengths: Everything you need for recording training and racing data in one lightweight piece of kit. Easy software installation onto pc and excellent backup service by telephone when occasional malfunctions have developed.
Weaknesses: Some loss of signal encountered in woodland areas and amongst heavily built up areas. Occasional failure of HRM to pick up signal for no apparent reason.
Overall: A device that belies its sophisication by its ease of operation and robustness. It has been, and continues to be, an invaluable aid in developing a progressive training regime, preventing a reoccurence of injury and maximising performance objectives.
