The word “cruise” comes to mind in describing the ride of the Meraki 2—a high-comfort trainer that delivers a plush performance for the long run. Fans of the first version will appreciate that round two is lighter and now has a seamless, more svelte mesh upper for greater breathability. The Meraki carries through its easy heel-to-toe transition with a carbon fiber shank and midsole design for flex, structure, protection, and fluidity. The pressure-free tongue is an added bonus for those who like to run sockless off the bike.
