We put the lightweight Scott T2C Evo triathlon trainers to the test
Scott T2C Evo
The tri-specific T2C Evo is a lightweight and cushioned road shoe that falls between high-mileage runners and pure racing flats.
The AeroFoam midsole is claimed to be 50 per cent lighter than standard EVA foam. A screen printed breathable rip-stop upper has just enough guidance from panels and clear plastic support bands to guide errant feet cleanly through each running phase.
The outsole has a bit of everything – from mini-stipples and co-moulded hard rubber grip zones to the smooth rubber heel strike and toe-off zones, the engineers have really gone to town.
The T2C Evos utilise the Scott-developed e-Ride curved midsole, which is designed to promote a mid-foot strike. It’s a comfortable halfway house between a plodding, heel-striking gait and the gazelle-like forefoot style popular with faster racers, which can be hard to master. We felt that the low drop and gentle rocking action, combined with the low weight, genuinely added to our speed over the pavement at both training and racing intensities.
