Product feature: New for 2014, is the Bare Access Trail a lightweight tech-packed shoe, from outdoor performance experts Merrell
The new shoe is designed for off-road use and features an agile and responsive ride, to maximise speed on trails and unpaved roads.
The Bare Access Trail shares many of its key technologies with Merrell’s popular Ascend Glove, including GORE-TEX® ConnectFit, the result of a year long collaboration between Merrell and GORE-TEX®, that delivers superior comfort, breathability and protection against the elements – keeping feet dry in wet conditions yet not restricting movement and flex within the shoe to allow for a natural stride. ConnectFit also consciously reduces the amount of stitching in the shoe’s upper, so reducing the potential for friction and irritation.
To help you stay true to your natural stride on the trail there is a zero drop, barefoot profile and runners will enjoy direct ground feel and stability. Aggressive 4mm lug design via the Vibram® outsole provides solid grip and the 8mm of cushioning in the MBound™ Trek midsole o!ers responsive feedback for a superior “spring-o!” feel to help maintain a constant speed on all terrains.
Other technologies housed within the stylish silhouette include M-Select FRESH that eliminates odour-causing bacteria (by the clever use of natural enzymes) and reflective details for increased visibility in low light conditions.
Available in a range of stylish, bright colour-ways including Molten Lava for Men and Blue Moon / Gold for Women, Bare Access Trail is sure to grab some serious attention, comfortably letting you concentrate on your performance, no on what’s on your feet!
