Shave seconds off your time and go for a new personal best. If speed is your motivation, the DS TRAINER delivers, whether it's building up speed with once-a-week interval training or taking aim at that sub-3 marathon. Why is it so fast? For a start, it's lighter than ever so your feet get off the ground easier with every stride. Secondly you get springy push offs thanks to the stabiliser in the sole that channels your energy into the forefoot. Go faster on long-distance runs from 10 to 42 kilometres. Grip the road with every stride thanks to the lightweight material in the forefoot. Perfect for training runs before switching to the DS RACER on race day.
Pronation Suitability: Ideal for neutral pronation.
Pronation is how a runner's foot rolls medially between footfall and toe-off. Underpronation is when the foot rolls outwards, overpronation is when it rolls inwards, and a neutral pattern is when little rolling occurs. Matching a shoe's properties with the runner's running style will increase comfort, running efficiency, and contribute to decreasing the risk of injury.
