SAUCONY ENDORPHIN EDGE: HIGHLIGHTS
- THE NATURAL FEEL OF UNNATURAL SPEED: An intuitive and flexible Carbitex AFX 3-quarter carbon-fibre plate gives you speed and efficiency without losing touch with the terrain beneath you.
- STAY COOL- STAY DRY: With both higher absorption and faster evaporation, the lightweight mesh on the Endorphin Edge actively pulls moisture away from your foot, keeping you cool and dry.
- NEXT-LEVEL PERFORMANCE: With a distance-friendly 6mm last, grippy PWRTRAC outsole, and deconstructed bootie fit, you have everything you need to go far and go fast.
Recycled fabric is used in the area of the upper material. Both higher absorption and faster evaporation, the lightweight mesh on the Endorphin Edge actively pulls moisture away from the foot, keeping cool and dry.
The ergonomic PWRRUN midsole ensures high wearing comfort and targeted relief of the muscles during longer runs such as the marathon. A special contour in the midfoot area ensures a brisk pace. Introduced by Saucony some years ago, is the flagship damping technology: PWRRUN.
Its faithful love the combination of softness and responsiveness, which combined with the Carbitex technology, flexible carbon fiber technologies AFX (asymmetrically flexing) plate, makes out of them a extra responsive competition trail shoes.
PWRTRAC, the Saucony outsole technology, has proben to be tacky and a durable rubber providing exceptional traction and abrasion resistance.
SAUCONY ENDORPHIN EDGE: CONCLUSION
These Saucony Endorphin Edge arrive as the natural evolution of the range that we already present for 2021, with a super light weight of 250 grams, but at the same time the robustness offered by the 36 mm height to the sole, making them clear competitors of the also recently presented Salomon Pulsar Trail Pro, Hoka Tecton X .
It is a competition shoe, with a high price (€ 200) that is based on the technologies it mounts and that for this reason and the weight may not have been designed for the whole peloton, but that for robustness and height of the midsole, why not, can also be used by the most corpulent.
Well, based on the numbers and what we have seen so far, these Endorphin Edge will meet the requirements of any trail competitor who wants a shoe with long-lasting cushioning, traction, maximum protection and a great reactivity provided by carbon.
In addition, they can also be adapted to some runner, a priori, not so fast, since the 6 mm drop makes them more “bearable” than others with more aggressive drops.
In short, a clear statement of intentions of Saucony to be in the front positions of the peloton, either in races of medium distance 30-40 km or ultras in the mountains, even somewhat technical based on the sole and the 4 mm lugs.
We hope you will send us a couple as soon as possible, to be able to tell you how they are actually going in the test thoroughly.
