How we tested

220 Triathlon Magazine - - Kit Zone -

These are light­weight run shoes, de­signed to max­imise speed. So the bulk of our runs were over a 2.5km test loop, com­pleted twice for a sprint-dis­tance and four times for an Olympic-dis­tance run leg. We also tested them in Fartlek and in­ter­val ses­sions to see how they re­sponded to swift ac­cel­er­a­tions, and utilised our Garmin FR220 to de­ter­mine if stride rate markedly fluc­tu­ated be­tween mod­els (a lower stride rate sug­gests longer ground con­tact time and a slower run gait). Each UK10.5 model was weighed and com­fort, as it should be, was based on how they felt out on the road at high speeds.
