Nike Air Trail Pegasus £60

Posted: 25 April 2003

Weight 375g
Evaluation 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.
We’re 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 won’t 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.
In short Regular Pegasus wearers might find the second density a little obtrusive at first, as the ride doesn’t feel quite as plush. But as the shoe performs well on the road too, you could consider the Trail Pegasus if you’re a more stability-oriented runner who wonders why so many people love it.
