These minimally-minded trail-running shoes keep your feet close to the ground and optimally positioned for a natural forefoot strike on rugged trails.
Vasque's Pendulum Trail Running shoe keeps the foot close to the ground for an optimally position natural forefoot strike. The EVA midsole and TPU plate protect the runner from the occasional heel strike or wayward stone. A bonded upper minimizes hotspots while a toothy outsole maximizes miles of traction over sketchy terrain.
Ultralight is nothing new and heavy-duty is a thing of the past for trail shoes; Vasque took the middle ground by balancing weight and function when it created the Men's Pendulum Trail Running Shoe. This minimalist-meets-rugged-runner shoe offers the cushioning and protection needed you need for rocky trails and the agility you want to be quick off your toes. As the lightest, most breathable, and most versatile trail shoe in Vasque's lineup, the Pendulum gets it just right for long-distance missions on the singletrack or fast hill-running in the mountains.

The Pendulum. It's the newest Vasque trail runner, the lightest shoe in the line-up, and the very latest in real-world, trail running design. The concept of function, like fashion, sometimes swings to extremes. Veering from overbuilt clunkers to barefoot runners and back, trail running's seen it all. But eventually, inevitably, things return to center. And the center is Pendulum. Like a more minimally-minded shoe, Pendulum keeps the foot close to the ground and optimally positioned for natural forefoot strike. But at the same time, an EVA midsole and TPU plate protect the runner from the occasional heel strike or wayward stone. A bonded upper minimizes hotspots while a toothy outsole maximizes miles over sketchy terrain. In trail running, there's a middle ground. It's root-covered, rock strewn, and it stretches for miles. Pendulum is the swift, stable shoe that's been optimized to make the most of it.Weight: 10.6 oz.
