SAUCONY XODUS ULTRA: HIGHLIGHTS
- LIGHTNESS: The Xodus Ultra 12 has finally broken the 300 grams barrier, and its on the same level of Hoka for such ammount of cushioning and protection, thanks in part to the lightness of the PWRRUN PB compound.
- MIDSOLE: Made up of two compounds, PWRRUN PB and PWRRUN FR, one of the great novelties of the Saucony Tempus to combine cushioning, support, lightness and reactivity.
One of the first things to remark, is the fact low foot print of the shoe, which is thanks to the recycled upper materials and the reduction of innecesary features. That gives us a minimal upper with fewer overlays to decrease hotspots.
Contoured sockliner hugs your foot for a perfect fit with a bigger toe box for more comfort in the long hours of ultras.
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.
Durable protection with an improved rock plate and the 3-piece PWRTRAC outsole provide an incredible grip with increased flexibility.
SAUCONY XODUS ULTRA: CONCLUSION
The new Xodus Ultra 12 is a training/competition shoe which offers the perfect combination between weight 294 g., similar to the Hoka Speedgoat 5 comfort and durability all of them provided by the PWRRUN midsole, which has proben in many Saucony shoes to be really comfortable and reliable (Saucony Triumph 19), and the PWRTRAC outsole.
Moreover, this new version applies new technologies in the upper construction, like the recycled mesh which apart from being made with a lower foot print offers a roomier toe“box”.
All on all, a very recommendable shoe for those who love to run long and comfortable, even in technical terrein with the stability offered by the entire chassis which will make it a very pleasant shoe to run with.
Obviously we have to wait a little to test them for you, but as soon as it happens we will let you know.
