Ultimate Hike/MTB/RD Shoes: Inov8 ROCLITE G 370

At 370 grams (13 oz) the ROCLITE G 370 isn't much heavier than some stability running shoes I've run in over the years, and they are significantly lighter than a few pair of hoops hi-tops I have in my closet. The performance of these all-mountain shoes are worth every little gram. For the life of me, I can't figure out how a pair of shoes could be more suited for the duties of race director than these. Period.
