Men's New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2

Men's New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2 in style PALE BLUE CHILL / DEEP VIOLET


Get an edge on race day with the men's New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2.

New Balance designed the RC Elite 2 with a FuelCell midsole and full-length carbon fiber plate for maximum speed when you need it most. The FuelCell foam is lightweight and bouncy to help drive you forward, while the carbon fiber plate adds a propulsive feel to the ride.

Designers wrapped the racing shoe in a breathable knit upper for comfort, and they constructed a traditional collar for a familiar, low-profile fit. New Balance also added a light rubber outsole to improve traction on pavement so you don’t spin your wheels when you hit top speed.

With a midfoot cutout in the foam to further reduce weight, the men's New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2 is primed for PRs.

What’s New

New Balance refreshed a few major parts of the RC Elite when they updated it to the RC Elite v2. Most notably, the v2 has a new outsole to replace the rubber nubs on the outgoing version. There are a few aesthetic changes, like a slight tweak to the silhouette and midsole, but the v2 still brings the speed on race day.

Who It’s Best For

The FuelCell RC Elite v2 is meant for runners who want to break their own records. The lightweight construction and high-rebound midsole foam are best saved for race day when you need a little extra in the tank.

Why You’ll Love It

Runners will love the combination of bouncy FuelCell midsole foam and a carbon-fiber plate for their propulsive properties. When you’re running fast, you’ll feel the RC Elite v2 at work.
