Scott Kinabalu Ultra RC

Posted on by Accelerate Running Store

Too many shoe brands update their shoes every six months or just bring in a new fresher colourway. Not Scott. Yes, as a shoe gains traction (Yes, that was intended :-) ) they will change the colour or the upper annually. Not a guarantee though. What you will see is the successful elements of one shoe taken into the next newer shoe. This plus something different and improved to … Continue reading
