Zoot Ultra Speed 2.0 Running Shoe
The Zoot Speed 2.0 is a cutting edge, triathlon specific running shoe that not only looks fast, but has a fast ride. Zoot Sports have produced a long line of innovative, technology induced products and this shoe is no different.
First thing you notice when opening the box is how light this shoe is. It is super lightweight at only 209g. Straight out the box and the trainer easily slides on, comfortably fitting around your foot thanks to the UltraFit feature; this is second thing you notice. With no laces to play with, it quickly comes off and on using the upper stretchy tab saving those crucial seconds.
These trainers are ideal to try sockless running. It gives you that great feeling of running free and saves that extra couple of seconds in transition. In the words of Zoot “Using our deep knowledge of fabrics and compression, we built a men’s triathlon running shoe that makes transition a breeze”. Many times have I tried to put on my L and R labelled £15 socks and got them on the wrong way!
The Zoot Speed 2.0 is probably best used for your A and B short races to give you that extra boost on the day. The Zoot’s feel fast, this is due to the carbon Span+ to guide your foot to a powerful toe off. Even when running long distances (over 10km) this trainer still breathes well and doesn’t get too moist.
Although this trainer has been designed for the neutral runner, Zoot Sports have several other trainers that appeal to all sorts of running types. For those of you wondering what running style is, it is the way you strike your foot when you run. ‘Neutral’ pronation may be described as an ideal running strike where the foot pronates with proper timing meaning your feet utilise their natural cushioning. This all essentially gives you a ideal running strike!
Back to the Speed 2.0! Right; style. These trainers look slick to say the least. Ever heard of trainer-envy? That will be a thing of the past as you sprint past other triathletes with them staring at your Zolt coloured soles wishing they had a pair! The RMT team all loved the way these trainer looked.
Overall this trainer is a great buy for those looking for style, speed and 21st century technology. It comes as no surprise that this product is at the top of the Chain Reaction sellers so get yours now before they sell out! At a very reasonable price for the spec off shoe, it is also good value for money.
