2010 Triathlete Magazine Shoe ReviewFlexibility. That is what stood out so dramatically for the 905, a lightweight trainer that felt like a racer because of its performance. Although testers who preferred more structure in a shoe found the 905 too minimalist, it was considered very stable by most and was a hit with neutral forefoot runners. The fit and feel earned shoutouts for being targeted for speed.
