Reliable traction on the trails

The shoe utilizes the Radial Lug Design at two main focal points on the outsole: the first is beneath the forefoot region, and the other is in the heel section.

The strategic design of the lugs results in the amount of traction needed for moving on the trails in various directions.

The Wet Traction Rubber, as the name implies, is a high-quality abrasion resistant rubber placed on the shoe’s outsole for the desired grip on tricky surfaces and an excellent performance on the trails.

The outsole of this shoe is as reliable as the outsole of the Speedcross 5 from Salomon.

Supertrac RC is flexible, durable and responsive shoe

In its midsole, the Scott Supertrac RC utilizes the Aerofoam+ injected material. The foam material is flexible, durable and highly responsive.

The Aerofoam technology provides the much sought-after ‘bouncy’ feel in the midsole and a very high energy return which keeps the runner motivated throughout the run.

The lightweight Racing Insoles are designed intelligently to further increase cushioning. It’s lightweight, so it won’t weigh down the shoe.

Scott’s Open Mesh provides maximum breathability

The shoe utilizes the ‘Open Mesh’ structure in its upper for maximum breathability and a healthy environment inside the shoe. The material feels soft against the skin and saves the user from uncomfortable chafing or rubbing of feet.

To add reinforcement to the upper, the shoe uses the seamless overlays. These layers provide additional comfort and protection to the foot.

The strategic shape of the Race Specific Tongue shields the runner’s foot from the pressure points, thereby maintaining an irritation-free and comfortably dry fit for the user throughout the run.
