Introducing the Catamount

The dirtier the shoes, the better the story

Our fastest trail-running shoe is built to go far and get dirty. Designed for optimal performance during long-distance races, the Catamount is the perfect canvas for epic adventure.

Nitrogen-infused DNA FLASH cushioning

Conquer any distance in the nitrogen-infused cushioning, featuring the perfect combination of energy return and light weight that adapts to your unique stride.

Trusted TrailTack traction

Take on slippery rocks and roots with TrailTack rubber. The outsole adds extra grip on both wet and dry surfaces.

Ballistic Rock Shield for optimal protection

Don’t be stopped in your tracks. The updated Ballistic Rock Shield is engineered to protect against any terrain while staying flexible.

Quick-drying TPU Mud Guard

Make a splash while staying dry. The TPU Mud Guard features quick-drying material, and slits along the top of the midsole to reduce blistering and fatigue from water-bogged shoes.

Tried and tested by experienced long-distance trail racers

To create the Catamount, our team of pro trail-runners spent countless hours putting the shoes to the test. Their work helped us ensure the Catamount could withstand any terrain, weather, and distance.

See what the crew that tested the Catamount has to say


"This shoe is my go-to shoe when I want to go faster on trails. It pairs the responsiveness of a race shoe with the durability and traction of a trail shoe. Not a lot of trail shoes on the market can fit that spot."


"I really enjoy that it has a rock plate, yet you don't feel any stiffness. You still feel like you're wearing a fast shoe, even with the right protection to handle technical terrain."
