Traction versus grip is the name of the game with these shoes. According to Scott’s experts, ‘traction is directly related to the kinematics of a runner’s movement.’ Essentially, the radial traction allows your foot to naturally adapt to the conditions whereas grip is pretty definitive – so it stops you instantly. What we really loved, however, was the nice, solid, responsive feel it creates. So, if you fancy testing yourself with something a little longer or want a nice, cushioned but solid-feeling shoe with all the usual protective elements (stone guard etc) then this is definitely one to look out for. It has an 8mm drop.
Verdict: Solid and reliable in all but muddiest of conditions.
