Review: K-Swiss Blade-Max Trail Ion Mask

K-Swiss recently release their new solution to Trail  Running with new K-Swiss Blade Max Trail Ion-Mask.
K-Swiss whom only of recent had enter into the  running market have been making some excellent road running shoes such as the miSoul & California, and  now to cater to the ever growing popularity of Trail runnning and adventure racing they release the  K-Swiss Blade-Max Trail Ion Mask.
Material use in the shoe had been treated with  ion-mask ™ by P2i nanotechnology and seam-free  technology, helps maintain a drier, more comfortable  environment making it water and mud resistance. Water will flow off the shoe and not into. Out of the box, i was surprised to see such an  aggressive looking trail running shoe, let alone from K-Swiss. the design closely resembles the impressive  Kwicky Blade Light. The color scheme use has a sort  of rugged appearance of trail shoes.  Its a minimal  shoe that packs so much in terms of mileage.
The main highlight of the Max Trail is its unique  sole. The foot bed is separated from the outsole by  diagonal blade-like pieces known asthe “Blade-Max” technology.
A bed of Innovative SUPERFOAM™ material that resists compression and provides long-lasting, springy cushioning sits on top of high-impact Blade-Max  technology. Rock Block Protection Plate offers  protection against large rocks and from stone bruises  in the rocky road.
Weighs at only 375.80g, which is about the average  weight for a typical Trail running shoe, The K-Swiss Blade-Max Trail is fully loaded high mileage trail running shoe equip for a mileage overdose as you stop at nothing to conquer rouged terrain.
Running at Macritchie Reservoir for a good 15km on nature trail and another 5km on the road the shoe transition well in both terrain but I personally prefer to use it  for it’s intended purpose which is to run the trail.
I personally like the pull on tab on the heel of the  shoe as it ease taking off and putting on the shoe.  Just like the K-Swiss California High-density AÖSTA  II rubber compound for extended durability and the Ion Mask were among the best feature of the shoe along with the Flow Cool System for all-over breathability and moisture management keeping the your feet cool and dry as you move.
Give it a go, slice the trail in your next trail  running adventure in the K-Swiss Blade-Max Trail.
The K-Swiss Blade-Max Trail is exclusively available at all Running Lab Concept store from Mid August.
Cheers! (:
