A powerful tool in a triathlete's race-day running arsenal.
- UltraFit upper and Teksheen technology give you the temperature regulation of a well-ventilated mesh upper and the performance benefit of a unique compressive design
- Tri-Dry uses water-repellent and quick-drying materials to limit the retention of sweat and water, which keeps you light and fast on your feet when you're running in the heat or moving through water
- 8mm heel-to-toe drop gives this shoe a moderate amount of offset, less than a traditional shoe (10-12mm) and more than a minimalist shoe (4-8mm)
- Moderate offset aligns your heel at a height that's more level with your toe than a traditional shoe design but that still gives you enough heel cushioning and support if you tend to (or need to) heel-strike during your stride when running distances
- BOA lacing uses a continuous cable attached to a ratcheting dial so you can make quick fit adjustments without worrying about laces that need to be tied or tucked away
- ZBound midsole is lighter than traditional midsole materials, yet it provides ample cushioning to reduce impact on the knee and ankle while it offers the rebound you need to push forward fast
- CarbonSpan+ forefoot construction uses carbon material to reduce weight at the toe of the shoe while improving acceleration and power at toe-off
- VPU sole is designed to achieve maximum traction on hard surfaces and in mixed or wet race conditions

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
I've worn/worn out half a dozen pairs of Zoot shoes and this far they have all ran true to size except the Race 4.0. I went up a half size, however, a full size may have been the right choice.
