At last an Asics for ultra that meets all expectations! The ex-aficionados deplored successive innovations: where was the Asics expertise, what were those tenfold grips… The Fuji Trabuco Pro 2021 is simply full and harmonious. Precise fit and amazing lacing; cushioning that is as present as it is durable; natural and pleasant drive: the shoe that can do it all, from trail to ultra. With aplomb, it takes the lead in our ultra selection. By the way, it even reminds us of our beginnings on the road… And let the miles fly by!
The spike returns to reasonable proportions and traction improves a notch: better a fine, biting geometry than rounded molars. On greasy ground, the effect is absolute – even if jamming can occur. What happened in the test tube? Because the rubber reaches the highest level, from rock to dirt. Never shy away from your chemistry lessons, as they say.
A well-designed and not over-protective stone guard caps the end of the ventilated mesh: the Fuji Trabuco Pro is light, but we’re moving away from floppy or fragile uppers. Thanks to its unbreakable fit, this Asics is simply efficient everywhere in the downhill. A pinch of effort, and it would gain in precision.
Cushioning, grip, support: overall success
CLEAR. Come on: tongue a bit soft
