A light and nimble yet amazingly stable racer trainer, the Topo Cyclone is certainly one to put on your list to try. With Topos trademark natural fit and wide toe box they make a great option for those that like a little more space or have a wider foot.
Best use: Designed for faster paced runs or racing on the road, the Cyclone is at home when you pick up the pace. A firm midsole gives a stable and “pingy” feeling ride without compromising on plenty under your foot.
Upper: Stripped back is the best way to describe the material used on the Cyclone very well. A highly perforated and breathable mesh moulds to your foot. Team this with Topo’s wide fitting forefoot that tapers into the heel results in an incredibly cool and comfy shoe.
Midsole: The Cyclones are not only very well cushioned, highly responsive while still been an incredibly stable platform. This is thanks to the ZIP foam used in the midsole, which has more rebound than conventional foam. An Ortholite footbed tops them off with an extra layer of plushness.
Outsole: A rubber outsole that’s optimized for weight, durability while still giving you the grip you need for tearing up the streets at speed.
Topo says “Upgrade your run with Cyclone, our lightweight, fast and nimble trainer. The EVA midsole features a ZipFoam™ core for a snappy, responsive ride. The 28 x 23 mm stack height provides an optimal level of cushioning on a neutral platform. Strategically placed rubber on the outsole enhances traction and durability. The ultra-light, seamless engineered mesh upper delivers a breathable and secure fit. These men’s road running shoes are great for 5Ks, 10Ks and half marathons.”
