Adidas SL20.2 vs. SL20: What are the updates?
Here are some of the changes incurred by the SL20 on its second iteration:
Heavier. The original Adidas SL20 weighs in at 8 oz while the SL20.2 weighs 8.7 oz.
Lower drop. This allows for a lot more ground feel for a better response. Prior to this iteration, which has a 9.5-mm drop, the SL20 features a 10-mm drop.
Better lockdown. All owed to the new, dual-layer mesh upper of the running shoe, a snug wrap is delivered for a stable performance.
What is it for?
- 5k runs
- speed runs
- middle-distance runs
- daily training (if you're amenable to a less cushy midsole than typical trainers)
When not to use it
Since it's designed to up your pace, it's simply not perfect for:
- Long, mellow runs
