The Saucony website claims that the ProGrid Kinvara 2 are designed to give you exactly, and only, what you need; something which is evident when you first pick them up weighing in at only 7.7oz. The upper part of the shoe is made from a mono-filament mesh which, although appearing very flimsy, remained undamaged when put through the test on numerous muddy runs on the moors of Scotland and on the tarmac of London. Despite first impressions, the material is relentless enough to prevent stray stones, pebbles and mud from getting into the shoe. The sole is made from an ultra-light durable foam and its shape creates a lower heel to toe ratio which sways toward the barefoot genre of running.
I’ve been using the Feetures! Light socks for my Ironman training rides and runs over the last few months. The basic idea behind these socks is great and I loved the wickability of the the fabric. Out of the swim and onto the bike they dried quickly, and have remained comfortable throughout the runs. During my training I’ve also been using the Feetures Pure Comfort which has similar multisport credentials although in a low cut shape. The one small downfall of these socks is that I have noticed a slight shrink after washing them so don’t heat treat them.
Convinced by Polar’s reputation as a leading manufacturer of sports instruments, I invested in a CS300 during the 2006 season to track my cycling training. Five years later, I now swear by the product, taking it out on rides on the mountain and on the road. It took three years and hundreds of hours of usage before my CS300 battery ran out, and Polar just three days to find and mail fresh replacement. As a example of how simple tech can enhance and simplify the training process, my experiences with the CS300 are almost entirely positive.
