Saucony just recently launched their all-new ISO-Series collection consisting of the re-engineered Triumph and Hurricane and the all-new Zealot, showcases two of the brand’s latest innovations: ISOFIT and PWRGRID+.
I was fortunate enough to be one of the first to test run the Triumph-ISO, it’s a light neutral trainer weighing only 10.3oz with an 8mm offset, it weighs a bit more than the Kinvara 5 (6.7 oz), mainly because of the new ISOFIT upper, it’s slightly thicker but designed to be ultra-soft, the inner fit-sleeve is crafted out of stretchable air mesh that morphs to the foot for a sock-like feel, haven’t tried running with it sock-less, but will try it out soon.
Just after the a few strides with the new Triumph-ISO you can immediately notice the cushioning being provided by the PWRGRID+ midsole, an improved version of the PWRGRID technology that provides 20% more cushioning and 15% more resiliency, the end effect? A great running experience.
“Our design philosophy has always been to look at the dynamics of the runner’s entire stride, not just the moment of impact,” said Pat O’Malley, senior vice president of global product for Saucony. “Runners continue to tell us that fit is the most important criteria in their choice of a running shoe. But there’s fit and then there’s fit in motion. ISOFIT provides a sustained dynamic fit, a truly personal connection between the runner and their shoe no matter foot shape, stride mechanics or ground surface. The ISO-Series’ fine-tuned approach is engineered to make you want to run, fully enjoying the experience like never before.”
Me after 15KM on the treadmill, I might just retire my old Kinvara 5 for this… or maybe not :)
The Hurricane blends the benefits of a premium stability shoe with plush cushioning underfoot, the result of the PWRGRID+ platform. The ISOFIT saddle is engineered to provide additional stabilizing support. A seamless toe box in the 8mm-offset Hurricane provides plush comfort and the Support Frame secures the heel upon foot strike.
The all-new Zealot rounds out the ISO-Series, offering runners ISOFIT and PWRGRID+ technologies in a lighter weight, lower-profile package. Two ounces lighter than the Triumph and built with a 4mm offset, runners will appreciate how light, fast and highly cushioned this shoe feels. Deep forefoot grooves provide an extremely flexible feel and an extended SRC (Super Rebound Compound) Impact Zone through the midfoot allows for a smoother transition. A seam-free toebox provides comfort and allows the toes to splay during the latter phase of the gait cycle.
All of the performance shoes in the ISO-series are available at the Saucony concept store located at the 2nd flr of Glorietta 3 in Makati City and specialty retailers: RUNNR in Alabang Town Center/Bonifacio High Street/TriNoma, Toby’s Glorietta 2/Mall of Asia, Sports Central Megamall/Mall of Asia, Olympic World Alabang Town Center, major SM Department Stores nationwide, and Robinsons Place Manila Department Store.
