Until now, the only way to get a Pegasus with the added stability provided by second density has been to customise a Pegasus 2000
at the Nike ID website
. The Trail Pegasus joining the road Pegasus and the winterised Storm Pegasus
comes with a medial post as standard.
Were not that sure how effective a medial post on rough ground actually is in our opinion a low profile midsole works just as well, if not better. However, if you want plenty of cushioning when you head off-road, you wont be unhappy with this shoe. Other plusses to the Trail Pegasus are a heavily waffled outsole that improves grip in mud. The upper, with its reinforcements around the toes and a sturdy overlay should prove durable in the rough-and-tumble world of off-road running.
Regular Pegasus wearers might find the second density a little obtrusive at first, as the ride doesnt feel quite as plush. But as the shoe performs well on the road too, you could consider the Trail Pegasus if youre a more stability-oriented runner who wonders why so many people love it.
