A futuristic-looking shoe that taps into Dynafit’s ski heritage, this is a precise-fitting mountain-running shoe. The Vibram outsole is designed to offer great grip on any terrain, but excels on rock and snow. The sole unit has an 8mm drop and enough cushioning to allow you to race down long technical descents with accuracy and comfort. The upper is lightweight but still includes tough toe bumpers and a quick-lace system, which hides under a grit gaiter. The shoe has a standard volume but a narrow toe shape and a low heel; it could benefit from an extra lace hole to hold the heel more snugly.
VERDICT: An exciting, technologically-advanced mountain running shoe.
