The Mammut MTR 201 Pro Low fit true to size.  You will notice that it has new lower lugs with a “sticky” rubber outsole (Gripex Sonar II).

It has a secure fit due to the “anchors” – lacing is built into the shoe.

I like the speed lace system with the lace garage to store the extra lacing.  The tongue is not gusseted, but there is a mesh material under the lacing to keep debris out.

The upper is built to last (abrasion-resistant 3-D polyamide fabric) with liquid rubber protection on the toes.  The Strobel midsole functions as a rock plate and runs the entire length of the shoe. This sturdy package comes in at approximately 11.8 oz with a 9 mm offset.

TRAIL TEST

The MTR 201 Pro Low performed very well on all types of trail terrain.  The speed lacing locks in well.  It is a solid shoe on all types of terrain especially on the rockier sections.  The shoe drained well after river crossings.

It is definitely a shoe built for the longer distances. The traction is aggressive enough to bite into terrain without much effort.  Overall,  the MRT 201 Pro Low is a great performer on the trails.
