Inspired by the maximal design of the Mafate series, the EVO Mafate gets a speedy upgrade that offers a high level of protection in a lightweight, race day package. Whether you’re a serious ultra runner or simply seeking an amazing weight to cushioning ratio, the Evo Mafate is built to go far and fast.
In order to deliver the cushioning needed for 100 miles, this shoe features an oversized midsole design. The shoe features an eva top layer to help create a softer underfoot sensation while an R-Bound bottom layer delivers a responsive and springy ride at toe off.
To create sticky traction over rough terrain, the shoe offers aggressive 5mm Vibram Megagrip lugs. Whether you’re scrambling through messy mud or cruising along manicured fire roads, the Evo Mafate has the traction and versatility to run through it all.
To keep weight at a minimum the shoe features an innovative Matryx tech upper. This thin yet durable material utilizes Kevlar stabilizers which help support the foot while also optimizing midfoot lockdown.
