RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0: TRAIL RUNNING SHOES FOR TECHNICAL TERRAIN.
RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0: TRAIL RUNNING SHOES FOR TECHNICAL TERRAIN. Our TRAIL SHOES section invites us to know the new RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0. The most aggressive raidlight for technical and complicated terrain.
Designed for complicated terrain and even with mud, we get the second version of the shoe that our colleague Mikel presented to us. Will there be many changes in this version 2.0? Let’s see the technical analysis below.
RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0
A few days ago we presented the Raidlight Responsiv Ultra 2.0, a shoe intended for long running. Today it is her sister’s turn to run fast, short and on more technical and complicated terrain. The Raidlight Revolutiv 2.0. The second version of what we can call the most technical raidlight shoe. A shoe that will be an ideal complement to those Responsiv now that winter is coming and it is time to run through softer terrain and even mud.
Let’s go first with the technical sheet of the shoe.
RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0: DATA SHEET
Price: 160 €.
Weight: 280 grams.
Drop: 6 mm, retains drop.
Upper: Double cover and tighter to the foot that offers more safety and protection.
Cushioning: Height in the front part 17mm and in the heel 23mm.
Sole: D Grip Ultra with 6mm lugs, to see if it solves the wet grip that we saw in its previous version.
RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0: HIGHLIGHTS
Shoe with a medium weight of about 280 grams, ideal for difficult terrain and short and medium distances. Helped by a double density half sole, a very protected cover, half sole with anti-roll plate and a sole with 6mm studs. It makes this Revolutiv 2.0 a shoe intended for technical and complicated terrains. Muddy terrain thanks to the distance and height of its cleats.
In addition to being a shoe that fits perfectly to the foot, to be able to run with agility in all this type of terrain. Now that winter arrives, it will be an ideal shoe for training and competition.
RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0: UPPER
On the deck, the Revolutiv 2.0 brings us the RL Regular last, unlike the Responsiv 2.0 for example, which given its characteristics and being designed for ultras, carries the horm RL Relax. This last fits very well in the middle area of the foot, although it expands a little in the area of the toes, to offer some more comfort.
We can appreciate the inclusion of TWS technology (Tendon Wrapping System) that uses a neoprene sock but more consistent material in the outer area to protect and maintain support in the back of the foot. All this together with fast lacing that can also be replaced by classic laces that are also included in the shoe.
In addition, we can see TPU reinforcements that will help give more support to it.
RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0: MIDSOLE
In the midsole, we have EVA foam of ethylvinylacetate, in addition to double density (Dual) with inserts in both the heel and forefoot to give us greater return of energy at the same time as more absorption of the blows and dynamism.
It also offers us a plate called Rockplate, to protect the area of metatarsus from the rocks, when we run in harder and more technical terrain. In addition to a small torsion bar included in the midsole to avoid twists.
The height to the ground in its back is 23mm, and 17mm in its front which gives us a drop of 6mm.
RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0: SOLE
In the area of the sole, we have a D Grip sole that we also saw in the Responsiv Ultra 2.0, but this time we will have some 6mm studs, they are high studs, placed directionally and with enough separation to help us in soft and muddy terrain. We will have to see, if the sole has improved in wet rock, because in its previous version, our colleague Mikel missed a little more adhesion.
RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0: CONCLUSIONS
A priori, the Raidlight Revolutiv 2.0 can be an ideal shoe for this winter. Perfect shoe for soft, muddy and technical terrain. In principle and depending on the conditions of the runner, an ideal shoe for training and short-medium races.
Perhaps for lighter runners, they can even be used in ultras in which the expected conditions are rain and mud. Races with typical northern-muddy weather, as we could see recently in the final of the World Cup in its Classic and Long modalities in Zumaia Flysch Trail.
As soon as we receive it, we will test it thoroughly here in trailrunningspain.com and we will tell you our feelings.
