These Shoes Weigh Less Than My Socks!!
Comments about Cyclone 2
I'm a long time Topo wearer for the wide toebox & 3mm-5mm drops but I wasn't a fan of the first edition Cyclone model - mostly due to the heel design. Topo listened to their customers, stepped up to the challenge and ran with changes to improve on the original in the new Cyclone 2! The 2's are somehow made of air. The mesh fabric of the upper feels sturdy but it's so breathable and dries quickly. The sole is like puffy, weightless styrofoam. The drop is perfect and there is a light arch support that is right up my alley. The lacing and tongue have almost a stretchy give to them so they don't get too tight in any one spot of my high instep. The toebox is roomy but secure with no rubbing on the top of my toes. The design makes my foot maintain a neutral running position. Best of all, the new heel is wonderful!! I always size up a half size to an 8.5 on running shoes from my standard shoe size of an 8 and that was just right with these. I wore these right out of the box for a 3 mile run and a 12 mile run within 24 hours of them arriving at my home. I had ordered as soon as I saw the release announcement so I've been wearing them almost a month as of this review. They even work for a bit of cross training so I don't slip on bleachers or lose my footing on grass while tire flipping but I wouldn't recommend them for trail running because they are too light for that. The only cons I have found are that the insole sometimes shifts a slight bit, the new lighter cushion feels a little odd in the beginning and these don't have any sort of rocker propulsion to speed me up, unfortunately, but I can't have everything! I will always miss my discontinued Zephyr's but I hope the Cyclone 2's stick around and bring more color options in the future.
Wow! Topo is spot on with this shoe. The shoe is light, very light. I find it fits true to size. I think lighter runners can use it as lightweight daily trainer. It definitely makes you want to run fast. The PEBAX foam is exceptional. A bit softer than the powerrun pb in the endorphin series. The shoe reminds me of the rebel v2 (an all-time favorite). Also reminds of the streakfly, but the Cyclone 2 has a wider, more stable base with none of the bottoming out I experienced in the streakfly. This is my first Topo shoe and I am very impressed. I'm glad Topo did not put a plate in this shoe which helps provide a more natural feel on the run. I plan to use it in some upcoming 5k and 10k races. Durability is yet to be determined, but TOPO came to market with a shoe I really enjoy running in and that's what running is all about.
