Craft CTM Ultra and CTM Carbon Ultra Video Comparison Review

Article by Sam Winebaum

Craft CTM Ultra ($175) and Craft CTM Carbon Ultra ($250)

In the video review, I compare the plated CTM Carbon Ultra to the nearly identical lighter CTM Ultra in beautiful Park City Utah's Round Valley. Both are road with some light trail/dirt roads hybrids. 

The CTM Ultra substitutes a Pebax insert for the carbon plate and EVA insert of the Carbon and as a result (along with its lighter upper) weighs 256g / 9.03 oz in my US 8.5 sample while the Carbon Ultra weighs 0.7 oz / 20g more . 

The stack heights of 40/30 and main chemically modified EVA main midsole and outsole are identical  

The uppers are mostly identical in fit but with the CTM Carbon's more trail supportive and the CTM Ultra more road focused and more breathable.

Hi Sam,

I was just wondering if you'll be coming out with everyone's mid year shoe of the year, both trail and road, like you did last year? It helps me narrow down what I should be looking to purchase. Thanks
