Karhu Forward Ride

  • By Triathlete.com
  • Published Jul 23, 2010

The Forward Ride is for those with a low-volume forefoot, given its small toe box that put some testers’ toes to sleep. With a slight twist on the natural running movement, the Forward Ride is all about the transition from heel to toe, allowing the foot’s biomechanics to flow with the running gait, treating our testers to freedom for ground force-absorbing mild supination and pronation.

Heel fit: Snug
Midfoot fit: Super close-fitting
Forefoot fit: Narrow
Flexibility: Somewhat stiff
Perceived Weight: Light
Barefoot factor: Structured
Cushioning: Somewhat firm
Stability: Stable
Responsiveness: Dampening
