Designed for mountain racing, the Supertrac RC combines a lightweight and seamless upper with a multi-direction studded outsole. It’s a very precise shoe, with more cushioning than most others in its class; this means it's brilliant on technical trail or mountain races that feature sections of road or hard trail. It grips well on grass, grit or mud, and is especially good when climbing. The light upper and dense foam tongue means it doesn’t soak up much water, and it drains well. Sized a bit large, with a standard volume but a slightly narrow toe, we found the fit excellent. The 5mm drop and natural ride runs very well.
VERDICT: Excellent all-round technical trail shoe; great for faster running.
