The Escalante Racer is our even faster, higher performance version of the Escalante.
The upper is firmer, highly breathable and has a lighter heel counter for optimum cornering and comfort on the race course. To top it off, the Altra EGO midsole is a touch firmer for a little more energy return and a little less cush.
Each limited edition version is inspired by a major city and only available surrounding its respective marathon.
Footshape toe box Allows your toes to relax and spread out naturally for more comfort and stability in uphill climbs and downhill descents.
Balanced cushioning platform Places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to encourage proper, low-impact form throughout your trail run.
InnerFlex Grid-like grooves in the midsole allow your foot to flex while being lighter, for more speed and better performance.
Footpod technology An outsole technology that actually maps the bones and tendons of your foot to help it bend and move naturally.
Altra EGO Dual-Nature midsole compound with a responsive, yet soft feel for increased energy return.
Sustained performance for fast training and racing
Specially developed knitted upper material is tighter and highly breathable
The 'neutral shoe' or 'cushioning shoe' is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). These shoes are therefore suitable for runners who have regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not roll their feet inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used for competition, for fast training and for long endurance sessions. The damping may vary depending on the application: in order to achieve more direct ground contact during competition, it is advisable to use only a slightly cushioned shoe. When training on hard surfaces or for long distances, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
