Our Review - Scott Kinabalu Shoe Women:
The Scott KinabaluShoe is the updated version of the very popular T2 Kinabalu 3.0 which has proven comfort, protection and grip on rocky, harder packed trails. Updates this year include an upgraded mesh upper, more cushioning and improved grip on mixed terrain.
The upper is made from even more durable materials and the construction is no sew so there is reduced chance of rubbing and irritation. Midsole wise the eRide design incorporates a rocker mechanism to increase running efficiency for heel, mid and forefoot runners. The Aeroform+ material provides excellent cushioning that has fed down from RC range without compromising on ground feel.
The redesigned outsole provides excellent grip on mixed terrain and is especially suited to drier, rockier conditions. The rubber compound and lug layout means you can traverse any terrain with confidence.
We have always been impressed with Scott Trail shoes and the new version of the Kinabalu looks continue this trend.
