New Balance New Balance Mimimus 10v2 Trail

Brand: New Balance

Model: New Balance Mimimus 10v2 Trail

New model for this year (Do not check this option if this model was listed as new in last year’s Gear Guide)The update to the very successful Minimus 10, the 10v2 trail is engineered to provide the perfect balance of lightweight protection, flexibility, and versatility. For the 10v2 Trail, a more traditional synthetic is utilized in the forefoot, replacing a less forgiving rubber, enabling the band to provide necessary support without restricting the foot. NuFoam has been added, which is a material that will stretch and flex to enable the transverse arch the freedom to expand while also providing enough support to ensure a secure forefoot feel. The biggest design update occurred on the outsole, where just enough rubber was removed to decrease overall weight and increase flexibility in key areas, while maintaining durability and traction.
