Mount to Coast R1

17 DAYS, 854 MILES, 18 RECORDS, ONE PAIR OF R1s.

In the spring of 2024, British ultrarunner Justin Montague took one pair of Mount to Coast R1s to run the MTC JOGLE, a multistage ultra across the Great Britain. Over 17 daily stages he ran 854 miles and 54,475 feet of elevation. The new record was almost 40hrs faster than the previous record, and he broke each day's individual stage record.

Tune In, Stride Out

In the relentless pursuit of distance, ultrarunners often encounter swollen feet. With the R1, your toes can relax and enjoy the ride thanks to our wide toe box and broad platform, and the TUNEDFIT Dual Lacing System offers customizable fit for the forefoot and midfoot separately.

Experience the Consistency

To create the smoothest possible ride, Mount to Coast looked to the automotive industry to create ZeroSag, our groundbreaking midsole insert co-developed with BASF. Durable, comfortable and offering impeccable energy return at any temperature, ZeroSag guarantees extraordinary cushioning on the longest runs.

The Road to Enlightenment

LightCELL, our proprietary midsole base material, starts as a unique PEBA-hybrid compound before being charged with pure nitrogen to create a supercritical foam. The result is a material that is 50 percent lighter than EVA, while offering 45 percent more energy return.

Award-Winning Design

In November 2023, the prototype of the R1 was honored with the prestigious ISPO Award. We are thrilled to receive this recognition and take a significant step forward in the running shoe industry.

Great shoes!

I debated these, as they are a new line and you never know what you're getting when you order online...but the good reviews helped convince me of the purchase. The shoes are exceptionally light, but still extremely stable, and have great cushioning. I'm a daily walker- putting miles on per day - so far love them

I’ve found my shoe! ❤️

Amazing! I put these on for the last 4 miles of a 30M run yesterday to try them out. Every joint in my body was hurting up to this point as I have rheumatoid arthritis, and was just coming off a 50K race. It was like a switch had flipped after slipping into them. The next 4 miles were effortless. My hip pain was reduced and I felt lighter on my feet. I can’t wait to try them on a longer run this week.
I’ve found my shoe!

Light, cozy

These shoes are light and nicely cushioned while still providing ground feel.
The lacing system is innovative. With the dual laces, I’m able to tighten and loosen the upper and lower parts of the shoe independently. My feet are loving these!
