Q: Is there a correlation between flight ratio and vertical movement or impact Gs? – Wayne G

A: Looking at our Community Databank, we find that there is no correlation (not even weak) between Impact Gs and Flignt Ratio.  So while Flight Ratio is an efficiency marker, it is clear that there are a variety of ways to get there.  You can be a (light on your feet) toe striker, or (really slap the ground) heel striker that is able to tap into the achilles for elastic rebound — both with identical flight ratios. – Tim
