Designed for speed, the Scott Carbon Ultra RC Is the latest in Scott’s growing armoury of trail shoes. Using their lightest and most cushioned foam yet combined with a dynamic Carbitex carbon fibre plate
Best use: Ideal for use on light trails when speed and comfort are the main aims. A lightweight upper, cushioned midsole and carbon fibre plate make it unstoppable on race day.
Upper: Using a double-layered engineered mesh that’s both highly breathable and incredibly durable. The lightweight performance tongue moulds over your foot for a secure fit and has no movement once they are laced.
Midsole: This is where Scott’s research and development shows. Sandwiching a dynamic Carbitex carbon fibre plate in between the Kinetic Light midsole. The result is Scott’s most cushioned shoe to date while at the same time not sacrificing their responsiveness, winner.
Outsole: Scott are famous for traction and it’s no surprise to see they have been busy making a new outsole pattern known as Ultra Traction. Multi-directional triangle lugs offer great traction whether you are heading up or downhill. Scott have also cut away any excess rubber through the midfoot to save on weight.
Scott says “Combining all our years of expertise in advanced traction, rocker technology and trail running we have created the SCOTT Ultra Carbon RC: our most technological trail racing product to date. Featuring a CARBITEX GearFlex plate that keeps you moving efficiently for long hours combined with our evolved rocker technology. The new Ultra traction outsole has strategically placed lugs to provide the best traction for those fast rolling summer trail races. The shoe feels light and cushioned thanks to our Kinetic Light Foam and high levels comfortable from a specifically designed engineer upper. The SCOTT Ultra Carbon RC is your go to shoe for trail marathons to ultra race distances.”
