The Ultralight was one of Thirty Two’s most popular – not to mention most innovative – releases, being the first boot to be made without rubber. Oh, and as you might have guessed, it weighed next to nothing. Now the Ultralight 2 is here to continue the legacy and take it to the next level.
It’s surprisingly stiff considering the lack of ounces, plus the Power Wrap cage over the top of the boot delivers added rigidity and increased response. The Evolution Foam sole, while probably not quite as durable as classic rubber, will still hold up amazingly well given the weight saving you get from it. The biggest benefit from all this is that your legs don’t have to work as hard to manipulate the boot, and so have a better chance of lasting the distance. Will the new look Ultralight be a success? Well, given that it scooped the gold award at the ISPO trade show earlier in the year, we’re guessing that it will.
