The holy grail of trail running is to provide both stability and flexibility, but to make the midsole stable yet soft has so far been proven to be far too difficult for product development teams world-wide, until now!  The development of Zeal has taken more than three years and after numerous tests and prototypes it's ready for launch.

Upper material is a light yet durable nylon textile, and together with the lacing system it embraces the foot firmly.  But it is the midsole construction, and the HGMS2 technology that is the true innovation.  Zeal provides a stable but soft heel grip, this is the impossible combo, made reality through the moulded insole cradle on the interior side of the shoe.  The midsole not only adds superb fit it also turns into the reinforcement protecting the foot in serious terrain.  The height of the heel cup is slightly reduced at centre back in order to reduce the pressure at the Achilles tendon.  The medium last is half-lined with QuickDry mesh.  The torsion and cushioning is in fine balance and together with the low sole profile the ground control is outstanding.  The outsole cleats are positioned so mud doesn't get stuck, and as if the deep lug pattern wouldn't provide traction enough the RB9X outsole is the benchmark among 'sticky rubbers'!


Ideal in New Zealand conditions for the serious off-trail runner, OCR enthusiast or orienteer that requires a stable yet soft shoe in all terrain.
