SAUCONY PEREGRINE 11: CUSHIONED TRAILRUNNING SHOES, 27MM MIDSOLE AND 5 MM LUGS.
SAUCONY PEREGRINE 11: Saucony’s allterrein trail shoe gains cushioning. Our TRAIL RUNNING SHOES section presents today the 2021 version of this shoe.
A shoe whose numbers are: 310 grams, drop 4mm and 5mm lugs…but now with 23mm to the ground in front and 27mm behind. True to its style, it remains a solid and reliable bet for the veteran popular runner, who will meet both firm and soft ground. Let’s go with the analysis by Mayayo.
SAUCONY PEREGRINE 11: CUSHIONED TRAILRUNNING SHOES
The American brand Saucony continues to look for its place among trail running shoes in Europe. In the USA it is more than consolidated for its successful effort to combine traction and protection, mainly with its Sagas Peregrine and Xodus. Today we go with the detailed technical analysis of the Peregrine 11.
For American mountain runners, it has earned a place at the top of the charts because they see it as a good shoe, which has proven to be effective and versatile for running in all conditions. That sustained versatility is what continues to impress there, even though in our country, there are rivals with better rubber on the sole and that even bring greater lightness than its 310 grams for the 23mm-27mm mattress on the forefoot and heel respectivelly.
In my case, I have rolled with several Suacony Peregrine over the years, always satisfied with them. The last editions I traced were the Saucony Peregrine 6 blues below and then the Peregrine 8. We go with the details of this 2021 version, the Saucony Peregrine 11 that once again maintains the consistent line that allows us to recognize today the same silhouette that we already shot thoroughly five years ago and with successive generations to this day.
SAUCONY PEREGRINE 11: DATA SHEET.
As you can see, it is a versatile running shoe that seeks a medium balance in all its elements. Not light, not heavy. Neither much nor little drop, lugs, cushioning…
To note, those lugs with 5mm, combined with up to 27mm of rubber on the heel. A duo that allow you to roll soft on firm ground, but also at ease in areas of soft terrain not very extreme. That is, most of those that exist in our country where Scottish or Florida swamps do not have many equivalents to the south of the Pyrenees.
- Price 140€. Average price within the market that we move today.
- Weight 310 gr. It earns about 20g and is now almost identical to his Wild Horse sisters, curiously.
- Recommended Use: Varied field training at medium rates. Better medium-high weight runners.
- Drop: 4 mm. You’ll get more out of it the better technique you have
- Lugs: 5 mm. Medium-high prominence taco that will give us confidence in almost all kinds of terene, except the deepest mud.
- Ground height: 23 mm front – 27m rear. To the limit of maximalism, or already within it. Rubber height to feel us roll soft.
SAUCONY PEREGRINE 11: HIGHLIGHTS
The height of the stack is higher than before, with 27 mm below the heel and 23 mm below the fore foot. The foam used remains PWRRUN with a similar medium density damping, slightly firm. The midsole absorbs shocks well and, at the same time, allows a little touch of ground on the ground, eliminating the wanderers and insecurities of foams too fluffy for the mountain, as was the case with Adidas Boost among others.
This firmer configuration, as with New Balance’s fresh foam FF, will be very beneficial in technical terrain. In this way we gain stability while ensuring a smooth ride.
Finally, like the rest of the shoe, the top shows no radical changes, but small touches here and there, such as a thicker tongue and a better overlay system. Provides safe locking and adequate ventilation with plenty of finger space; The front of the foot is not as spacious as an Altra, but it fits most runners.
CONTINUING SOLE… AND ST VERSION FOR SOFT TERRAIN.
The sole and lugs took an important leap for the previous version, so logically they are now almost identical. They offer impeccable grip on the most technical surfaces. Noting, that in their country of origin, as they happen in Italy too, it is common to run several months of the year on snow/ice so, like the Italians of La Sportiva, these Saucony shoes allow you to add nails for ice remove/pon if necessary.
Not only that, too, there is the ST (Soft Terrain) version for soft surfaces such as mud. It comes with 6.5mm studs compared to the 5mm standard and GTX versions. It lowers just 1mm the cushion 22-26mm) and also features a cover with greater protection against dust and snow. Spectacular, isn’t it? Wishing to see you around now for Autumn/Winter we are…
SAUCONY PEREGRINE 11 REVIEW: CONCLUSION.
The Saucony Peregrine 11 continues to be an excellent value-performance option for the popular veteran. The runner with good technique will especially like it, who will better exploit that drop 4mm. Among them, the medium-high weight will look more at ease with those 23-27mm of rubber under the feet. And while, neither by weight, fastening nor rubber sci-fi are shoes to win a technical race, if they will be a safe bet so that most of the popular platoon we have a good companion with which to go out and roll quietly every day. The same for a long footing as for an alpine-toned path, without reaching clear climbs or extreme descents is.
For the popular bracket, it adds a well-reliable configuration by loathing a wide range of terrains and situations thanks to its unique combination of foot support, protection and grip.
To be noted, the female versions are also available in various colors. They vary by just a lighter weight of 270 grams, as well as declination with bands and pink details that you can see below, compared to its male sister in green band.
