Designed to offer the utmost agility, speed, and protection, this shoe is Merrell’s lightest and fastest elite trail running shoe to date. The shoe recently won an ISPO award, a prestigious accolade for outstanding products in the sports industry.
The MTL Skyfire 2 features a unique FlexPlate™ technology, which provides exceptional underfoot protection and supports agility and speed. This technology sits between two layers of the brand’s FloatPro Foam™, which offers incredible responsiveness for maximum underfoot comfort. The engineered mesh and TPU upper of the shoe allow for breathability, keeping feet cool during intense trail runs.
The shoe’s Vibram® MegaGrip® outsole offers maximum traction, while minimizing weight, making it ideal for elite athletes looking to blaze up mountain trails. The shoe is part of Merrell’s MTL range, which is rigorously tested and validated by the brand’s elite athletes to meet the highest bar for elite performance capabilities.
In addition to its high-performance features, the MTL Skyfire 2 also boasts eco-friendly elements, such as 100% recycled laces, a 100% recycled mesh footbed cover, and Cleansport NXT™ treatment for natural odor control.
Merrell’s Test Lab, an elite product advancement incubator, developed the MTL Skyfire 2. The shoe is expected to be a popular choice among trail runners who are looking for a high-performance shoe that also prioritizes sustainability.
