Carbon Shoes -Are They Worth It? Featuring the New Balance RC Elite V2

Are Carbon Shoes Worth it

The question we hear daily in the Den, alongside ‘But will they make me faster?’ and ‘How much?!’ 🤣

There’s scientific research that says carbon plated shoes can improve times, and the Bears are inclined to agree. Those of us that wear carbon have all noticed a speedy increase. Carbon shoes are all about improving your efficiency as a runner and, in turn, enhancing your performance. People have also commented on reduced fatigue and improved recovery times. A must-have for race day? -We think so.

Below in our video, we feature The New Balance FuelCell RC Elite. This shoe features a high-rebound FuelCell midsole compound paired with a full-length carbon fibre plate to help promote energy return and propulsion. At the shop, we find that it fits true to size. It has a high stack height of 10mm, and the carbon plate also propels you forward and has a soft and bouncy ride.

Pop in-store and try a pair on when you’re next passing 🐻
