We had the chance to test the Scarpa Spin RS, shoe from alpine running category, designed for trail lovers and long outings.
Our test Scarpa Spin RS : a shoe designed to last
Our Scarpa Spin RS : le Selvaggio blu in Sardaigne, Grand Paradis slopes, few step of Ruitor in the Val d'Aoste, not forgetting Mont Veyrier overhanging Annecy lake.
The first thing that we like : his comfort. We can do 10, 20, 30 km without having foot pain and whatever the altitude difference.
"I direclty go on the steep walks of the Selvaggio blu in Sardainia, on seaside outings from 5 to 7 hours with warmth. With a good pair of breathable sock, the Scarpa Spin RS brought comfort" Sebastien, specialist on trail running from Alpinstore
Secondly, it's the grip because I have rarely fallen. The speed and the rebound of the shoe are the important features. The Scarpa Spin RS has a Vibram Litebase Megagrip outsole, which bring a high grip, whatever the terrain.
The compromise break/lightweight is invincible. The shoe weighs 265g and offers a very good grip.
Finally, it's the duration and the kilometers that we can do with it. It's always the same question when we buy a shoe at 150€ : will she lasts ?
"Less than 1 year, I did more than 800km with this shoe and she is not totally weared out. I keep it for small outings where I know well the terrain." specialist on trail running from Alpinstore
