Caveman rock drops fat tyred Stumpjumper 6Fattie

Now that I’m retired from racing, I love trail riding just for fun. Stellenbosch (South Africa) has plenty of great trails, like the new Red Route in Jonkershoek.

In the edit I drop my Specialized Stumpjumper 6Fattie into the rocks. I ride the 3 inch wide 650B tyres quite soft- 18psi rear 15 psi front (1.2 and 1 Bar) they just soak up the trail rubble and let you rail the trail.

Caveman’s go everywhere, do anything bike!

Perfect triathlon running shoe! Water drains right through Altra Running Impulse.

Water drains right through Altra Running Impulse

“A wet shoe is a heavy shoe.” Running long distances in high temperatures is part & parcel of triathlon. We pour water over our bodies and stuff ice in our clothes to keep cool. Which means running “squich squash” in wet, heavy shoes. The new Altra Impulse is designed to let water drain quickly- resulting in lighter, drier shoes. Of course Altra’s key technologies – Zero Drop and FootShape Toe box remain.

“Dry” weight: 244gr

Great for Ironman and 70.3 triathlons.

Embrace the space. The story about Altra’s FootShape toe box

Conrad Stoltz Altra Running Lone Peak 2.0 Footshape toe box_

A foot shaped shoe! My Altra Lone Peak 2.0s. Why are the other companies still making shoe shaped shoes?!

Altra’s FootShape™ toe box allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position for more stability, speed and efficiency. Not to mention no more blisters and black toe nails!

Embrace The Space

Traditional running shoes feature pointy toe boxes that squeeze the toes out of their natural position –increasing risk of bunions, hammertoes and plantar fasciitis. Personally, I suffered really painful Mortons Neuroma- nerve damage from many years of too narrow shoes. The  Altra’s FootShape™ toe box allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position. This enhances stability and creates a powerful toe-off to maximize running performance. We wish we could call it some scientific breakthrough, but we’re simply giving your foot the working space it needs.

  • Keeps big toe straight for greater stability and a more powerful toe-off
  • Allows toes to relax and spread out naturally
  • Allows foot to naturally stabilize excess pronation

Replicating Perfection

The human foot is an anatomical masterpiece. It’s designed for stability, speed, and to get you from point A to point B. At Altra, we choose not to mess with perfection and simply let your foot do its thing. Every Altra shoe features a last that has been molded around the healthy position of a human foot. A shoe last is a 360-degree model of a foot used to create the shoe’s heel, instep, and toe box dimensions. Unlike other shoe companies that alter the last to make the shoe look more sleek and fast, we’ve chosen to let your foot decide the shape of the shoe.
