Overview

There's a springy ride in both the forefoot and heel of the Rider. It steers your foot through a good movement and has a smooth feel to it. The lightness and flexibility both contribute to this and make it a shoe you can up the pace in. A new upper for the start of 2008 is the change from the Rider 10. It fits well and is breathable. That means the fans of the Rider 10 will all be equally at home in this new model.

pretty cool

This shoe is good for people who heel strike. Quite comfortable and light.

Fast direct shoe

As midfoot lander, it is difficult to find the right shoe, with protection on the right place, without a bulky thick heelpart. There all my training is done on hard surface (living in Shanghai downtown), this is major to me. This shoe gives me the right mix. It gives enough cushion in the middle part, and enough response to stay in touch with the road. I use it sometimes for the long runs (>20km), although I prefer it on the speed sessions. Overall it is one of the better shoes I ever run with.
