Low Rider

Close to the ground, firm, and fast--the Transistor FS is jonesing to push the pace on packed singletrack and fire roads. It has a thin, flexible sole--for smooth and fast striding--plus a built-in footbed that conforms to individual foot shapes, keeping you in touch with the trail. Just don't get too technical: It's not armored enough to be an everyday shoe on nasty trails. And our most narrow-footed testers struggled to achieve a secure fit, especially on rocky or off-camber terrain. Best for wider, full-volume feet. 11.2 oz; $100; vasque.com
