Updates to Scott Palani RC

  • The Scott Palani RC is one of the reliable running shoes that’s designed for the roads. It has a close-to-the-ground midsole design to help with proprioception and natural performance. The platform is made up of a bouncy yet highly resilient foam, with rubber shielding it from surface abrasion.
  • The upper unit makes use of a no-sew mesh. This textile has visible breathing pores all over it, highlighting an interior experience that is free of stuffiness. A synthetic layer is fused with the mesh, bolstering its structure and helping with security.

Size and fit

The Scott Palani RC was crafted using the standard measurements. When it comes to size, runners can expect their usual preferences to work well with the available options. Widthwise, the variants are D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women.

Outsole

The outsole unit of the Scott Palani RC is comprised of a rubber layer which is tasked with protecting the rest of the platform from wear-and-tear. It is also responsible for providing grip over the asphalt. A small portion of it extends to the forefoot, acting as a bumper against potentially harmful elements.

Midsole

AeroFoam INFINITY makes up the Scott Palani RC’s midsole unit. This full-length foam is meant to deliver reactive steps while maintaining its structural integrity throughout many running sessions.

eRide is a design that fundamentally curves the sole unit into a rocker shape. Such a configuration encourages a smooth and quick transition through the gait cycle.

Upper

The upper unit of the Scott Palani RC is made up of a breathable mesh that has a no-sew construction. The job of this textile is to provide a secure yet well-ventilated coverage.

Overlays are printed onto the sides, the front, and the back of this running shoe. These add-ons are meant to reinforce the façade while also ensuring the safety of the foot within the interior chamber.

The padded collar aims to cushion the ankles and heel. It also works to prevent accidental shoe removals.

A traditional lacing system is employed in this model. Semi-flat shoelaces snake across the instep; they adjust tightness or looseness of the fit. A lace-anchor prevents the thin tongue unit from deviating to the sides.
