Rockridge Picked as “Best for Rugged Terrain” and “Best All-Arounder”

Richmond, Calif. (April 1, 2010) –The Montrail Rockridge™ has been honored twice this season in the April 2010 issues of Shape and Trail Runner magazines. The Shape Shoe Awards testers selected the Rockridge as “Best for Rugged Terrain,” while Trail Runner gave it an Editors' Choice Award for “Best All-Arounder.”

“The feedback we are getting with the Rockridge right now is incredible,” said Todd Lewis, Montrail Product Manager. “For the second year in a row, and the second time this season, Montrail has turned out award-winning trail runners, testament to the Product Development Team's running know-how and commitment to excellence.”

The 2010 Rockridgeâ„¢ is a low-profile, neutral shoe with outstanding cushioning perfect for dirt, rock and fire roads. It features the VEL last (think Velocity for speed) designed specifically for trail runners with its medium-volume fit and roomy toe box. The outsole has been optimized for moderate to technical trail conditions with deflecting lugs for cushioning and perimeter digging lugs for traction up and down hills.

Shape testers specifically called out the mesh upper that “keeps toes dry and cool” yet “withstands pokes from branches.” The newly designed outsole on the Rockridge “...makes you feel ‘secure enough to run anywhere without fear of slipping.'”
Trail Runner Tester Todd Kennedy described the Rockridge, “The highlight of this shoe was the light weight. It sacrifices very little sole protection, yet offered great trail feel.”
