Review of the new 2017 Icebug Acceleritas 5, which have made more than cosmetic changes since last year’s model.
The above paragraph holds true for every model of Acceleritas that I’ve worn over the past 3 years: Accel 3, 4, and the special edition OCR LE model. The updates from 3 to 4 were mostly cosmetic aside from a slightly lower heel cup. Full disclosure, the teal Acceleritas4 were my least favorites of all. While version 5 retains all the above positive points (note: you can interpret “snug” as a negative if you are wide-footed), the changes made by the design team in Sweden from racer feedback has manifested in a new wolf in the old sheep’s clothing.
