RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0: TRAIL RUNNING SHOES WITH 6MM LUGS FOR MUD AND SNOW
RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0: TRAIL RUNNING SHOES WITH 6MM LUGS FOR MUD AND SNOW. Our TRAIL SHOES section invites us to know the new RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0. The most aggressive raidlight for technical and complicated terrain.
A couple of weeks ago we brought you its sister, the Raidlight Responsiv Dynamic 2.0 for women, seen by our partner Ana. Let’s go now with this men’s trail shoe, analyzed by Mayayo.
The Raidlight Revolutiv 2.0 is now available on the Raidlight website in its men’s version. A shoe that stands out in these winter days, for being very versatile and off-road.
After our first kilometres together, I can confirm that he sticks especially well to the foot by his neoprene sock. I have also found it suitable for winter technical terrain, especially those with fresh snow or muddy ones.
Thanks to its 6mm cleats, this shoe will be ideal during our winter outings on muddy and decomposed terrain. In addition to its cleats it offers us a very comfortable sole and a cover that will give you a very remarkable fit resulting in a high precision shoe for short and medium distances.
Let’s go first with the technical sheet of the shoe.

RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0: MIDSOLE
The Responsiv Dynamic 2.0 shares the same midsole as this Revolutiv. Designed with Dual double density offers great traction for short and medium distances, technical terrain and muddy floors. It has a small torsion bar to give us greater stability.
The heel is designed with soft materials and TPU reinforcements to avoid chafing and pressure in the Achilles tendon area. Padded tab that has a small pocket on one of its sides to store the laces.
With a height to the ground in its front of 17mm and in its rear part of 23mm, it offers us a drop the 6mm, like its sister the Responsiv Dynamic 2.0
RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0: SOLE
It has a D Grip sole with a 6 mm lugs that gives it greater grip than the Responsiv Ultra. This helps to pull better on all terrains thanks to its high and separated studs to obtain adhesion in any condition.
Ideal shoe for medium and short distances and especially for technical and muddy terrain where it will develop perfectly.
RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV 2.0: CONCLUSIONS
These Raidlight Revolutiv 2.0 men’s trail shoes were born, according to the brand to be the ideal footwear both in technical and vertical terrain, as well as in snow and mud. A shoe that, with little height to the ground, is worth us for short and medium races. Well… they have not done anything wrong, I can attest. Here are three things that I especially liked about them.
The Revolutiv 2.0 provides a comfortable and protective midsole, but with only 17-23mm to the ground.
Of course, they also wear those 6 mm of height of separated studs so that they do not ambush.
The cover, with that neoprene inner sock and heel fit may not suit all lasts, but at least in my case if it wraps and protects my foot well.
In short, with those three pillars, lugs, protected midsole and tight fit, I confess that it has given me a lot of confidence for the many throws of snow and some mud that I take this winter, from the Guadarrama to the Pyrenees.
They could be, for middleweight runners, perfect shoes for a Zegama or a Marimurumendi passed through mud.
And for featherweights, I would say even more, because perhaps they fit well in technical and alpine races such as the Canfranc Marathon, Desafío el Cainejo, or Traveserina and Travesera themselves. There I leave it… 🙂
