The Best Review of Zoot Men’s Ultra Race 4.0 Running Shoe
The most advanced triathlon racing shoe, the Ultra Race 4.0 gets you out of T2 faster and provides a smooth ride for your entire race. Built with the amazing glove-like fit of the Ultrafit upper, and secured with the Boa® Closure System, this neutral running shoe fits like no other on the planet. Lightweight cushioned comfort with 8mm offset and CarbonSpan+, you will feel fast. Weight: 8.4oz/238g
The new shoe model used the BOA system as a method of quick on and off tightening and advertised a “consistent and perfect fit each time the shoe is put on”.
This left us wondering when someone would take this element into a running shoe.
Lighter, faster, cooler; the Ultra Race 4.0 with Boa is a racing flat designed for the athlete looking for a lightweight shoe with a custom fit. Zoot partnered with well-known fit supplier, BOA, to prefect a closure system that creates a 360-degree fit and is fast in T2. This unique fit combined with a TekSheen upper creates the most dynamic fit in the world of running.
It seems like a natural fit for an integrated lacing system that 86s the need for any type of traditional laces. The new Zoot Ultra Race 4.0 is the first shoe we’ve tested to incorporate this idea into a running shoe.
The Ultra Race 4.0 is a lightweight racing flat with a 8 mm drop . They are an absolute true running shoe that is designed to go in distance.
Zoot Men’s Ultra Race 4.0 Running Shoe Reviews
we also found this great review and i find it very important to share. a client name Ivan Lacayo share his own review with this product.
Fits a bit small so I would recommend a half size up. This shoe has been very caring on my feet as I normally get blisters quickly or cuts in my rear heel. Im very happy with its comfort and performance! -Ivan Lacayo
Zoot Men’s Ultra Race 4.0 Running Shoe
The new Ultra Race has the kind of feel that we usually drift to in a running shoe. It’s a firm, responsive ride that you would expect from a shoe that will likely be used in a race situation. It’s certainly built for speed and avoids the dreaded mushy feel of an overly soften ride. Overall the shoe does a nice job of combining the stripped-down feel of a race flat with enough cushion to allow you to easily run in it for daily training.
This shoe has a glove-like fit, even without engaging the Boa system. In fact, we were easily able to run in the shoe with no tension on the Boa. One thing to note is that because of the very fitted upper, there’s not a lot of room in the shoe. This shoe is made for bare feet, the interior is super soft and comfortable.We actually liked the fit of the shoe.
In our opinion, getting the right fit with this shoe is outstandng. This shoe really needs to fit you like a glove without the Boa. The Boa system is really only there to enhance the fit. A nice example of an unified closure system that actually works. If you liked the fit and ride of previous Zoot models this may very well be your shoe nirvana. The reduced height of the shoe, especially where the back height is concerned is a vast improvement that makes this shoe deserve another look, even from previous Zoot haters.
