You asked, and Altra delivered. Theirr popular, max-cushioned trail shoe returns with a completely revamped Vibram® outsole and a softer, more flexible upper. The new outsole dramatically enhances traction in uphill and downhill terrain while maintaining the max-cushioned feel you love. Traction and durability improvements have also led to a reduction in weight over its predecessor for a faster ride. An impressive 36mm stack height runs evenly from front to back and features an A-Bound bottom layer to add a spring to each step and EVA™ top layer to take the bite out of the rugged terrain. And like every Altra shoe, the FootShape™ toe box keeps your feet happy, relaxed, and stable through uphill climbs and downhill descents.
WHAT’S NEW IN 2016:
- Vibram® Outsole
- Improved Traction
- Less Weight
Places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to encourage proper, low-impact form throughout your trail run.
Allows your toes to relax and spread out naturally for more comfort and stability in uphill climbs and downhill descents.
Energy-return compound sits directly under the foot to reduce ground impact and add a spring to each step.
Hook-and-loop tab allows strapless gaiter attachment that prevents debris from building up beneath the shoe.
This unique tread pattern positions lugs beneath your metatarsals for incredible traction in steep climbs and descents.
