Often called Clifton for the trail, Challenger ATR 5 looks even more like a Clifton with its cleaner, less busy look and more breathable upper. And like the Clifton 4, Challenger ATR 5 is fast and light, offering a smooth, smooth ride. Where it diverges from the Clifton and takes the path less traveled is in its multi-lugged outsole. Arranged closer together towards the heel for a smoother, more consistent ride, its lugs have a wider spread in the forefoot to help with grip on the trail and in wet conditions. Still as versatile and supportive no matter the running surface, Challenger ATR 5 has improved upper durability in the areas you need it (like a larger toe guard area). Let’s take to the trails people!
META-ROCKER [the wheels to move you forward] Meta-Rocker geometry, or wheels for your feet, drives the runner forward and reduces the differential (in height) between the heel and toe, complementing the runner’s normal gait cycle.
extended toe cap for more durability
internal heel cap for more grip on any terrain
4 mm cleats for grip on any terrain
Outsole with rubber reinforcements for greater stability on uneven terrain
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.
