Who should buy the Scott Supertrac Ultra RC
You will love the Scott Supertrac Ultra RC if:
- You want trail running shoes that is excellent for ultramarathoners due to its highly aggressive outsole and heightened durability
- You want a neutral trail running shoe that has a water-proof upper but at the same time is breathable
Experience enhanced reliable grips with the Scott Supertrac Ultra RC outsole
The outsole unit of this running shoe uses a full-length rubber compound. This layer protects the foam midsole from the debilitating effects of surface contact and continued use. It also provides traction just like the Salomon Speedcross 5.
The All-Terrain Traction is an outsole configuration that involves aggressive yet well-spaced gripping lugs, as well as bonus plinths on the perimeters. These elements work together, ensuring high-quality surface grip and balance. The generous spacing between each lug was admired for the natural sloughing off of mud.
Scott's AeroFoam+ technology in the Supertrac Ultra RC midsole
AeroFoam+ serves as the midsole unit of the Scott Supertrac Ultra RC. It is a variant of ethylene-vinyl acetate. It has a lightweight and flexible construction which allows runners who barely feel the platform underneath the foot. It also has a durable build as it is able to retain its form even after many runs.
eRide is a rocker shape that fundamentally leads the foot smoothly through the gait cycle. Heel strikers benefit from this curved design as it encourages a smooth landing while midfoot strikers can quickly adapt to the crest of the convex shape (which is right at the middle part of the platform).
The RC Insole is an insert that gives a bit of oomph to the underfoot experience. Its thin profile doesn’t hinder the flexibility of the midsole. Also, it can be removed or replaced with a new one if the runner chooses to do so.
Scott's schoeller-dynamic fabric is used on the Supertrac Ultra RC upper
The schoeller®-dynamic is a fabric that is licensed for the Scott Supertrac Ultra RC. This material is highly durable yet also breathable and water-repellent. Its versatility also extends to its capacity to stretch and follow the shape and motion of the human foot as it goes through the gait cycle.
A generous helping of synthetic print surrounds the bottom part of the upper. This layer acts as a wall that protects against rough surfaces and elements such as trail debris. It also heightens the visual aspect of the shoe as it has a spiky outline and a bright color scheme that contrasts with the primary textile.
A traditional lacing system is used for this running shoe. Flat laces zigzag across the instep, looping through discreet eyelets that are reinforced by printed overlays. This fit-adjustment scheme tightens and loosens the coverage to suit the preference of the wearer.
The lightly padded tongue and collar support the instep, the ankles, and the Achilles tendon. These parts of the façade also avert accidental shoe removals.
A lace anchor prevents the tongue unit from sliding to the side of the shoe and causing discomfort to the foot.
A fabric loop is stitched onto the back of the shoe. This pull-tab mechanism assists the runner when it comes to putting on and taking off the shoe by widening the opening and facilitating the push-and-pull movement of the donning-and-removal process.
