320g (UK 8) scott-sports.com
The Scott Kinabalu is an extremely comfortable shoe, cushioned with 29mm of Aero Foam+ at the rear, making it ideal for those who like longer races and offers a bouncier feel to your run. The 8mm heel drop and the unique eRIDE midsole geometry is designed to increase efficiency, and the shoe certainly feels fast despite coming in a bit heavier than some of the competition on the market at 320g.
This is also definitely a shoe for harder, firmer trails as the lugs aren’t particularly deep and won’t be great at eating through mud. It's a surprisingly responsive shoe for something that looks a little bulky.
Ready for rock and drier conditions – think alpine.
