The Vanish Carbon 2 features a full-length carbon fiber plate, even more lightweight midsole foam for a soft feel, and improved flexibility. It’s ready to rocket you through a tough speed workout and obliterate PRs on race day. Negative splits? Oh, positively. We built it to perform by increasing the stack height from 33mm to 36mm, with Altra EGO PRO™ midsole foam that’s 32% lighter in weight. This updated foam is more pliable, for added cushion and response. An updated full-length carbon fiber plate delivers a 14% increase in asymmetry, allowing for a more natural (and probably faster) stride. This redesign overhaul combined with additional flex grooves in the outsole gives you 75% improved flexibility. With Altra’s signature FootShape fit, you get a roomy toe box with space for your toes to move freely, snug midfoot, and zero drop, so you can move the way you were designed to. Toe the starting line with confidence and swag in this techy race-day ready shoe.

This is a significantly different iteration of the original Vanish Carbon - the differences are listed below. The Vanish Carbon 2 really feels different to anything Altra has ever produced for road runners. The flexibility of the plate, whilst still allowing for some resilience, isn't as rigid as most other race day plated shoes…thus we feel a little more versatile….not to mention actually having some space in the forefoot 😉.

WHAT'S NEW

  • Full-length carbon fiber plate (previous ¾ ) increased asymmetry while encouraging a natural stride
  • Increased stack height (from 33mm to 36mm)
  • Lighter weight Altra EGO™ PRO midsole Pebax based foam (previous Nitrogen infused) for a more pliable, softer underfoot feel.
  • Additional outsole flex grooves for improved flexibility
