Gear Review: 2010 Montrail Mountain Masochist

Written on Sep 28th, 2010 by , Category Training

I put the 2010 Montrail Mountain Masochist to the test on one of our tough, local trails in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, outside Leavenworth, Washington. The Colchuck Lake trail is a mix of smooth dirt trail, rocks, roots and stream crossings. The lake itself is nestled below 8,00o ft peaks named Dragontail and Asgard Pass. To learn more about this area, click here.  The Mountain Masochist is lightweight, solid trail shoe. I was very impressed by its traction on both dry surfaces (rocks and logs) and wet (rocks, logs). Great cushioning, a roomy toebox and a supportive midfoot are key attibutes. The only compliant (if you call this a complaint) is that you need to double tie the shoelaces, but otherwise this shoe is outstanding. Wear them with Injini socks, and you are ready to tear up your local trail running scene!  To learn more or purchase, click here.
