A breath of fresh air in the great outdoors: trail running
Trail running and trail running are two disciplines that look very similar, but are in fact very different.
Trail running is a mixture of running and hiking. The word trail can be translated as "path" or " track". Trail running means running on trails of varying steepness in the mountains, and especially in the wilderness.
Depending on distance, type of terrain and altitude difference, there are different kinds of trail: ultra-trail, short-distance trail, vertical kilometer, etc. The preparation of these trailers requires a great deal of time and, above all, a great deal of adaptability in order to perform at their best.
But speaking of performance, there's nothing better than a good trail shoe to optimize your training and racing, both lightweight and flexible. Your joints take a lot more shock on these sometimes rocky trails. That's why you need trail shoes that support your ankle properly and stabilize your foot.our low-priced Scott products
The first thing to consider is the sole, one of the most important elements in ensuring the safety of your feet and joints. The soles of these trail shoes are often very grippy, thanks to specific technologies such as Vibram Megagrip, recognized for their excellent traction on any trail. These soles are often thicker too, to ensure optimum cushioning. They can be found, for example, onour selection of Hoka One One shoes.
Some trail shoes come with gaiters, which are already integrated into certain Dynafit models, to ensure extra comfort by protecting your feet from mud, snow or rain. But even without gaiters, these shoes are equipped with technologies that will keep your feet dry throughout the race. Indeed, many of them feature waterproofing technologies such as Gore-Tex.
For a good trail run, choose the right shoe. Because it's by taking care of your running tool that you'll get the best performance. Stability, support and performance will be your watchwords from now on.
