Description

Are you ready to lose your mind? The Superior 4 takes what has always been a strong performer in it’s range, and launches it level to outer space! First off, the shoe is light, at a 21mm total stack height it’s got a great cushion to weight ratio.  The upper has been completely redesigned in a wrap-around style for added security and support. We anticipate the upper to have added breathability, whilst the drainage holes at the front of the shoe have also been improved.  The midsole features Altra’s proprietary Quantic™ foam, which has a soft underfoot feel. The outsole is now made of Altra’s sticky MaxTrac™ rubber, which is best described as SUPER STICKY!  To top it off, the rounded heel and improved lug pattern is made to fly down the trail with ease and speed.

The racer

If you’re looking for a light racer that still has enough cushioning for a good old throw down, this shoe will definitely do the job! Was concerned about the durability of the upper versus previous models, but after 300 km’s the shoe is still holding up well and featuring regularly in my shorter mid-week runs.

What a light and cushioned shoe! Absolutely love running in them, they also have an optional rock plate that can be switched in and out. This meant I could have a light and flexibile shoe without the rockplate and a stable, protective shoe when I hit some technical trails. I would highly recommend it as a short distance racer on trail, but also has ample cushioning for longer distances. Happy trails 🤙🏼

superior Superior

Love the new Superior 4.0, perfect for those who like low stack height, lightweight, comfortable shoes. The redesigned upper is extremely comfortable and durable. My go-to shoe for racing and training on dry and fast trails up to 100km.
