INTRODUCTION

The Skylite 2.0 is a minimum feature, minimum neutral trail shoe designed for racing and daily training.

CUSHIONING

  • MEMIex EVA is a full length midsole engineered for moderate cushioning.
  • TrailShock is located in the heel and is a dual density EVA foam designed for shock absorption and stability.

MIDSOLE

  • MEMIex EVA is a full length midsole engineered for moderate cushioning.
  • Composite Shank is embedded in the midsole is a 2.5mm long shank designed for torsional stability.

UPPER

  • Air Mesh encompasses the majority of the upper and is breathable to help keep the foot cool.
  • Scree Guard covers most of the upper and is an external guard to keep debris out of the shoe.
  • Traditional Sockliner provides underfoot comfort.
  • Slip Last involves wrapping and stitching the upper in a boot-like shape before attaching the upper to the midsole which helps promote flexibility and decreases weight.

OUTSOLE

  • FriXion AT is a full length lightweight and resilient outsole that is engineered for wear resistance.
  • Impact Brake System is a lugged system designed to lessen impact by 20% and increase uphill/downhill traction.

Comments: I bought this shoe at the same time as a replacement pair of C-lites (not the 2.0, the originals).  The sole on these shoes are VERY stiff compared to the C-lites and I found them to be uncomfortable compared to the glove-like feel of the C-lite. My feel actually ached a little just sitting at my desk in them while I decided if I liked them or not.  I'm sticking with the C-lites for now.
