NEW BAL­ANCE SUM­MIT UN­KNOWN

220 Triathlon Magazine - - KIT ZONE - new­bal­ance.co.uk

£90 With a low 19mm stack height and a lithe weight (245g), the Sum­mit Un­knowns are the shoes to pick for grassy parkruns and short, fast ef­forts on less tech­ni­cal ter­rains. They per­form on both roads and lighter trails, and lend them­selves to sum­mer rac­ing with the breath­able up­per. The shal­low 4mm lugs help with all-things speed, but also limit their ap­peal in terms of only ad­e­quate trac­tion and a lack of un­der-the-arch pro­tec­tion. De­spite the ‘Toe Pro­tect’ la­bel, they pos­sess a slen­der bumper and the nar­row toe box won’t suit wider feet. The tongue also has trou­ble stay­ing in place.
