I overpronate and have flat arches so always have to go for a well supported trainer which normally tend to be a heavy trainer. I tried these out in a reputable running store on the treadmill. The video analysis surprisingly showed that these were keeping my lower legs nice and straight. I say surprisingly because these are quite lightweight and appear to have less support than other stability trainers.
On the flat roads, the trainers felt fast and very responsive. As I moved onto the wooded trails, again the trainers did not disappoint and there was plenty of grip to handle the more uneven terrain.
Where I was really pleased was when I hit the hills, with the Lunarglide's being a lot lighter than I am used to I was able to, well literally 'glide' up and down the hills.
I felt some slight pain in my knee, and I'm worried that these may not have the overall support that I require but my thinking is I can always replace the insole with my Orthotics.
