How we tested

220 Triathlon Magazine - - KIT ZONE -

A long test­ing pe­riod gave us the chance to as­sess all shoes in a mix of con­di­tions, from hard­ened late sum­mer tracks to sub­merged win­ter routes. Each of the trail shoes was given a se­ries of shorter and faster runs, and the same 20km off-road test loop, with grip, speed, com­fort, sta­bil­ity, pro­tec­tion, ven­ti­la­tion and drainage all as­sessed. We also looked at value, aes­thet­ics, dura­bil­ity and weight (all fig­ures are for a sin­gle UK 7 shoe). We fac­tored in the tar­geted aim of each shoe as well, whether that’s train­ing, rac­ing or a com­bi­na­tion of the two.
