A good update to the original and a very capable shoe. Not of soft as many super-shoes, but still highly responsive and with a good toe-off. Sits between the feel of old-school racers and new super-shoes in terms of feel.

Our verdict

A good shoe, has the feeling of many of the new breed of super-shoes, softer and springier but retains it stability. If you don't want the super-soft and unstable feel, it's the racer to go for.

  • Positive
  • Carbon plate provides good responsive ride.
  • Light, smooth cushioning
  • Negative

First impressions

Much better than the original, softer and smoother riding. Carbon plate is still in there but it's the foam that's much improved. 

Midsole

DNA Flash midsole is nitrogen infused to give it that springy feel. Much softer than the original and now able to cope with more miles. Feels more responsive and ours show no sign of feel of a loss of cushioning even after 150miles. 2mm thicker than the original too, so that helps. Not super-soft but thats ok, there's lots of super-soft options about it that's what you want. This is much more stable than many and with the 'rapid roll' technology the shoe feels smooth as you roll forward.

Upper

Neatly finished single layer upper is soft and has a stretch-like quality to it. Fits well and it very breathable thanks to the perforated design. 

Sole

Road racer outsole is there mainly to add durability. Good road traction in wet and dry.

Conclusion

A good update and a good shoe option for those that want a stable super-shoe. The carbon palte is slightly thicker in the centre and this gives a little more stability and control (designed to help in the later stages of a marathon) - If feels stable and helps keep you feel in control. Not ultra soft but has enough of a responsive toe-off to make it a great racing option.
