NB Beacon v2 - Great lightweight yet cushioned shoes

Tried new Pegasus 37, Asics NovaBlast and Saucony Kinvara 11 so far this year in 2020. But compared to them, NB Beacon v2 really suited me the best - its fit, the weight, cushion and how it rides. I am not even a fast runner but sure makes my run more fun. Love the cushion in the forefoot, mid foot and the heel. Not mushy and firm enough for a better response. Love this pair more than NB 1080 v10.

What a nice shoe. They have a great balance of weight and comfort and would serve anyone well as a daily trainer.

v2 still nails it!

If you are looking for a lightweight neutral shoe that can handle it all, the latest iteration of the Beacon does not disappoint. The most notable feature is that NB did not mess up an already great shoe. Sufficient cushion for running long (at least for a relatively scrawny dude like myself), the Beacon really shines when picking up the pace. The most notable change is in the heel area: the original was cushioned at the achilles, v2 is not. Still comfortable, imho.

New Balance Beacon - Outstanding Shoes

I have been running in the Beacon for several months now. It is a great blend of cushion and response. Very light, performs well on a track, and definitely takes good care of my feet on long runs. I have run 3 half marathons in them and couldn't be happier
