Relatively lightweight, the upper is close-woven mesh with a web of supportive synthetic overlays, in particular HF-welded eyestays and saddle. The midsole is single density EVA with a responsive, cushioned ride. The forefoot has a protective “Tail Shield,” a thin polymer layer molded with the midsole. The outersole is dual purpose Gryptonite Trail with perimeter lugs that are a little larger and flatter for durability, while the interior lugs are smaller, sharper, and aimed in different directions for traction on the looser trails. The midsole/outersole setup does a good job both on- and off-road-—especially the ride, which nicely splits the difference between road cushioning and trail responsiveness.
