I liked the weight and feel of the shoe during fast running. As a heavy heel striker, it has not got enough cushioning for me covering middle distance. The shoe is probably more suited to track sessions.
Outstanding lightweight and direct road racer (good traction and energy return) - only 205g! Thanks to the propulsion arch (mid-foot component in )the shoe has a strong energy return on concrete and on the track. Now you may ask, what could be that outstanding. For me this answers easily. The durability, comfort and decent stability. Additionally we often run on wet surfaces here in Singapore, caused by previous tropical rainfalls and the outsole honestly provides strong grip to answer this need. I have not been slipping with these shoes once. Cushioning is not the key proposition but good enough.
One key thing to mention: Even if the shoe is called Race, I think and believe that it is a great shoe for you weekly training (I do 2-3 out of 6-7 session per week in them).
Thank you for your awesome review! It's great to know that you are getting so much mileage our of our shoes! Yes! The strong energy return comes from the Up'bar technology that we placed in the shoe. Shoe traction as also been improved from our previous model so running on wet surfaces will be less hazardous. If you need a shoe with more cushioning without compromising too much on weight, you can consider our Kiprun Fast model which features not just the Up'bar for energy return, but also K-Ring technology for cushioning and K-only for stability and all at just 280g at sample size 9.
