Originally designed for our elite racing team, this shoe was tested and loved by some of the fastest runners in the country before being released to the public. The classic 4 lug Newton ride with a seamless upper feels fast, light and efficient. The Distance Elite is great for high or low distance training and racing. We hope you love it as much as we do!
The Elite is the ultimate race day shoe for distance races on tarmac. It is suitable for distances from 3k to 1/2 marathon. Marathons are also no problem for those with good technique and leg conditioning. The forefoot cushioning is fantastic for such a light shoe. There is minimal heel to toe drop so make sure you have adequate conditioning before running longer distances in this shoe. I prefer to do slower and longer runs in either the Motion or Kismet shoes. If you lack the conditioning in the legs or are running long distance or Ironman the Distance VI could be a better shoe.
I used the Elite shoe to race the 70.3 worlds and also the Xterra Worlds. I found the shoe to be supple and fast off road in dry to damp conditons. In mud or rain you'd better in a spike.
