Recently our friends at The Red Bulletin had some great things to say about the Vasque Pendulum II. Focusing on it's great trail running performance, the Pendulum has great cushioning under foot with a hard mid plate for excellent control. The Red Bulletin said, "Stepping into the Pendulum II feels almost like pulling on an exoskeleton". The open mesh upper also provides for a cooler run during the hot summer months. Overall a great pick for getting out and putting some quick miles behind you.
