INTRODUCTION

The Carrera XC is a lightweight cross-country racing flat designed for 3k to 10k distances.

CUSHIONING

  • To keep weight down, this shoe contains no additional cushioning technologies.

MIDSOLE

  • SSL EVA is Saucony's premium midsole material that is designed to maximize rebound and durability while minimizing weight. SSL stands for Saucony Super Lite.
UPPER
  • Lightweight Ripstop Mesh covers the entire upper and is a breathable lightweight fabric.
  • Flex Film Overlays are made of a thin film that is welded to the upper for a snug, secure fit.
  • Pro-Lock is an internal support strap that keeps the foot locked down to the shoe.
OUTSOLE
  • XT-900 throughout the outsole is a carbon rubber material that offers durable traction.

Comments: I agree with other reviewers: not durable enough at all. If there is any gravel, pavement, or non-grass/dirt areas on your course, you are better off with the Shays. I went through two pairs and had the same problem each time: the spikes and the sockets in the shoes got bent out of place (sockets were bent sideways) and the shoe became unusable with spikes. I use them as flats for workouts on grass now. Stick to the Shay XC, its new update is much lighter than it was and it's much more durable.

Comments: Nice & light but fragile! First time I wore them stepped on a rock & the spike got pushed through the sole of the shoe and got stuck pushed in...very uncomfortable for the rest of the race. Nice shoe if you can aford a new pair each time you wear them...
