Pros Wonderful traction, balance of sensitive and protection, durable outsole and upper, unisex designStable, protective, wider fit, technical terrainVersatile use, aggressive outsole, fits most, comfortable, protective, all terrain use, good price.Excellent traction, great balance of foot protection and sensitivity, specific fit, durable outsoleSuper stable, protective, sensitive in the forefoot, traction over all surfaces, durable
Cons Laces are short and stupid, expensive, potential midsole durability issues, zero drop may not be for everybodyExpensive, doesn't bode well on slippery surfacesNo water drainage system.Higher heel is less stable, lugs wear down on pavementHeavy, no rock plate, rigidity isn't for everybody
Bottom Line Conquer all types of trails with this all-around performer.A technical train runner designed with stability and protection in mind.Comfortable and aggressive, this shoe is built for any trail for any distance.Built for steep and sloppy surfaces, its the best option for the gnarliest of terrain.Stable and rigid, this trail shoe is for those looking to put on the miles.
