SCOTT SUPERTRAC RC

price: £125
weight: 255g

Designed as a technical racing shoe, the lightweight upper of the Supertrac RC is bonded rather than stitched. Its wet-traction rubber outsole has a multi-directional lug pattern, which gave good grip in all but the deepest mud and was best of all the shoes on wet rock. The snug fit and 5mm drop add to the feeling of precision. Although not the most cushioned shoe on
test, this was by no means uncomfortable on hard-packed terrain. A lightweight shoe for really tough conditions.

verdict

A light racing shoe, performing well on wet and dry rock.

Cushioning: 6/10
