First impressions

A well-priced shoe offering everything you need to go off-road at a very competitive price.


The Amplifoam midsole encased a rear foot GEL pad for added cushioning. The new blend of foam helps keep the shoe relatively light as well as a little more responsive than previous versions. 


The upper has stepped up a notch from previous models. It uses a breathable mesh for comfort as well as more durable sections in key areas of contact to add protection and durability. It's a hard-wearing design and provides a supportive fit for hitting the trails. 


The carbon rubber, trail specific outsole is durable and has a specific off-road pattern for added traction on a variety of surfaces. 

It's a no-nonsense design and functions well.


A good value shoe thats well made and constructed with tough hard wearing elements for added durability and protection from the trail and the elements. 

At this price you won't mind getting it dirty.
