Let’s just say it right away. This is a great step forward for the Asolo brand. No model in its sector has so far given such a response. A perfect balance between weight, fit, protection, stability and cushioning. The upper has a breathable mesh structure strengthened by a special wraparound TPU cage with a large medial support. The gathered forefoot, padded with respect to the hips, increases the perception of control. The lacing, which in part constitutes the natural extension of the exoskeletal structure, wraps the foot without constrictions. The fabric tongue includes an elasticated HLP pocket useful for storing the soft laces. All this integrates beautifully with the microfibre containment sock, the Sock-Fit system that helps maintain foot stability. The heel construction, which is well structured and well padded, does not add any pressure and ensures a solid run. The 3D TPU toe gives far too much rigidity, useful in case of accidental impacts. The sole/midsole compartment is particularly elaborate. Everything starts from a medium density EVA containing base. Two softer pads, positioned

under the heel and under the toes, absorb the pressure of the foot at the moment of impact, promoting comfort over long distances. In the medial area there is an ergonomic ESS shank that avoids torsion. The cushioning is generous and effective (thanks to its 24mm height at the heel and a design with vertical ribs) but equally capable of giving the right sensitivity on the sharp corners. Well-trained athletes will find it a stable and reactive shoe, which allows you to better express a performance run. The sole, in Vibram Megagrip compound with Litebase technology, takes up the shape and the arrangement already seen on Spin RS, an exclusive Scarpa design adaptable to any type of terrain, especially on compact surfaces. The trapezoidal shape, not particularly high, is well distributed in the push and brake areas with a pattern that follows the natural support of the foot. Spin Ultra is a model for already expert, lightweight and performing athletes. Compact, reactive, with the right amount of cushioning, very efficient in the running phase, agile on the technical parts. Also recommended for athletes of all levels over shorter distances. Comparing it with the direct competitor’s proposals, they will be on the same level. But the Spin Ultra still remains more agile and with a more running sole.
