Fresh for the 2013 cross country season is Saucony’s new Carrera XC. Saucony has long been a player in the XC market with their popular Shay and Kilkenny models. What’s been missing is an ultralight performance spike for the elite athlete. The Carrera XC should fill this void nicely, and at an expected 3.9 oz for a Men’s size 9 and 3.5oz for a Women’s size 8, we see it as a strong competitor to shoes like Nike’s Victory XC.
What to Watch For
- Lightweight Upper: A thin mesh upper features FlexFilm overlays throughout for a secure and supportive fit.
- Full Length Spike Plate: The six pin Pebax plate extends to the heel to provide unrelenting grip and torsional rigidity.
