Running Styles

  • Lug Depth

    A higher number lug is for wet, muddy, and rocky terrain. Lower lug values are better for road-to-trail situations.

  • Drop

    A higher drop value provides less ground feel and more protection, a lower drop value provides more ground feel. The lower the value, the closer you get to a “barefoot” trail runner.

  • Cushion

    Higher cushioning is recommended for more aggressive terrain and long runs. Less cushioning will provide a very close-to-the-ground feeling.
