Brian McIntosh: ULTRA 103S (UPDATED 102S) ARE WELL, OK Strengths: Breathability. OK on road and trail. Weaknesses: Breathability. OK on road and trail. Overall: OK for training but not for anyone racing.
In short:Stable performance off-roader Penfold: GOOD FOR THE NOT-TOO-ROUGH STUFF, AND RUNS WITH SOME ROAD Strengths: Lightweight, supportive and responsive. Ideal for trails and multi-terrain races. Weaknesses: Lightweight, supportive and responsive
In short:Combines adiPRENE+ cushioning on the midsole and a soft rubber outsole with a light, breathable upper Sol: PLUSH CUSHIONING, RESPONSIVE & COMFORTABLE Strengths: Good work-horse shoe for road running & trail work Weaknesses: Good work
pmo: Fantastic trail shoe. Plenty of grip in most conditions, yet cushioned enough for occasional tarmac. Strengths: Lightweight (for a protective shoe)Good cushioningExcellent gripFlexibleWide toe boxFast drying and well ventilated Weaknesses
. Used on the "not sure where we are going today" club runs. Strengths: Great for mixed terrain. A generalist, but not a specialist. You will like this shoe if you like Asics 21XX shoes. I have done mixed long(20m+) road and trail sessions
moderate pronation control. Ortholite footbeds hug the foot while also reducing odour. Traction was good on woodchip trails and on hard ground but struggled in wet grass and in thick mud, and the toggle lacing system was slightly fiddly.
: upgraded mesh, reinforced toecap, increased outsole traction and a protective membrane on the upper make it suitable for running on most trail surfaces. However, the familiar Newton stripped-down construction, responsive feel and forefoot lugs also lend
system for one-pull tightening. Fred Wheatley : Much better than I thought they'd be. Strengths: Weaknesses: Overall: Having never bought any trail runners before I imagined that they would compromise a little on the cushion and sole structure in order
and improve heel-to-toe transition, while the NoSeam bonding in the upper helps to prevent blistering. It copes well with hard-packed trails and switching from trail to road, and the comparatively slim tread copes admirably on loose gravel chips and rocky
support for longer runs and natural spring from the fascia band. Overall: A great responsive trail shoe at a good price. mark wade 6: Excellent fit, light, and excellent grip in muddy conditions. Strengths: Shoe is quite light and very good grip wet
