ADIDAS TERREX TWO FLOW: TECHNICAL ANALYSIS BY MAYAYO.
The ADIDAS TERREX TWO FLOW is now on sale, on the official Adidas website. It is launched with a price of 120€ for a weight of 300 grams, with drop of 6mm. The highlight in the range is its a ground height, with no less than 24mm in front and 30mm at the back. The sole is the usual Continental, the cushioning is entrusted to the new Lightstrike development.
As the brand presents it: “This Terrex trail running shoe allows you to explore the asphalt or the mountain. It features a breathable and lightweight mesh upper that fits the foot like a glove and holds your foot in uneven terrain. The lightweight Lightstrike midsole adds cushioning and comfort to your stride. Its studs adapt to the terrain passing easily from paved surfaces to ground. The continental rubber composite sole gives you excellent traction and adhesion in all kinds of conditions and terrains”
ADIDAS TERREX TWO FLOW: DATA SHEET.
- Price: 120€. An average price for an elite racing shoe, which will be more profitable the more you take it out with you. Interestingly, it’s up to €60 cheaper than the Adidas Terrex Two Ultra Parley, the perhaps more technically similar shoe to this Two Flow.
- Weight: 300 grams. Low for long distance shoe, though not especially. Interestingly, it is 40gr lower than the market reference, the NB Hierro V6 and also up to 20grams lower than the Two Ultra.
- Drop 6mm: Not much or little, usual midpoint in the racing shoes. At the time pre-carbon plates was the classic biomechanical optimal. Now, with the plates forcing on asphalt with drops of 10mm and more, it’s no longer so clear. T
- Height: 24mm front and 30mm at back. High dimensions, to roll long well padded. In fact, it adds up to 1mm more than its sister the Ultra. And even more so than the Iron’s 20-28mm. Light and with large mattress, two good weapons already.
- Light Strike Damping: New Adidas, which we reviewed later.
- Classic upper and laying.
- Continental sole: A reliable grip and already well tested on a variety of different surfaces. In fact, it recovers here the most veteran sole of the brand, with medium lugs of just 3mm more related to the hard terrain of tracks and firm trails than to mud and snow.
- Variety: Arrive in three colors, to choose from. Here we leave them for you.
ADIDAS TERREX TWO FLOW ITS THREE HIGHLIGHTS, DIFFERENTIALS.
UPPER: The Terrex Two Flow features breathable fabric on the top and good cushioning at the bottom for you to attack your long-distance races with desire. They are made for a wide variety of terrains, and so you can soak well with the adventurous spirit of the wildest roads.
CUSHIONING: The midsole comes equipped with Lightstrike technology. A new development whose launch icon may be that Adidas Ultra Boost 20 last year. It wants to bring greater stability and momentum. With it, the brand claims greater reactivity than with the spousal initial boost.
CONTINENTAL SOLE: As always, we have continental rubber from the brand’s unique rubber compound throughout the outsole. A rubber that in this case is completed with an average lug of about 4mm that is the most common in the entire range of the brand. A rubber that has probed enought a great quality both in grip and in durability. It’s not maybe, the best on the market, but it would be in the top 10. For my taste, yes, it goes behind the Inov-8 G-grip, La Sportiva, Salomon contagrip and Asics trac or Vibram Megagrip. And ahead of The Michelin gums, as well as the generic Brooks or Saucony rubbers.
ADIDAS TERREX TWO FLOW, CONCLUSION:
The adidas Terrex Two Flow is an interesting trail running shoe for anyone looking to run long. The most padded of the brand, much lighter than its sister Ultra and also much cheaper. Compared to the NB Hierro V as the market dominator, it is also lighter and cheaper. In return the American provides better sole with the Vibram Megagrip and more comfort… in general, except if you’re wide-footed. Now, all we have to do is shoot them thoroughly for you, so we can get samples for it.
