The midsole is a firm, molded EVA with a “mud release surface”—essentially a slick finish that keeps the mud from clinging to the sides. The outersole is a new configuration of plus-sign–shaped flexible lugs covering the entire sole, but they’re made out of adiWear on the medial half and sticky rubber on the lateral half. The Raven is constructed using ForMotion 360, a full-length thermoplastic Strobel board that offers protection on the trails without restricting flexibility, in combination with the proven ForMotion cassette in the heel, here in a trail-specific design with a side-to-side cleft across the entire heel to better flex with the uneven terrain of most trails.
