The new Ride 5 is a whole 30g lighter than its predecessor, yet it has more cushioning and protection from the road. The new version retains the great responsive feel of previous Rides and the loss of weight further adds to the feel of this shoe.
Other developments for this new addition are the use of IBR plus in the outsole which is lighter and more cushioned than any other outsole material on the market, saving further weight, but maintaining durability. The new bevelled heel gives a smoother transition after heel-strike and sets the foot into a more stable position reducing the inclination to over-pronate.
As part of the Geometry of Strong range, the new Ride 5 is also built on Saucony’s revolutionary 8mm last, meaning that the heel-to-toe ratio is reduced. 8mm puts every runner in a more balanced, comfortable and powerful position without compromising cushioning or stability. The new Geometry of Strong design lets you land further midfoot, striking with less impact, giving you greater stability and control.
In this position your ankles, calves, knees, quads and hamstrings are in better alignment. And better able to absorb the impact of the road. This new alignment puts you in a more spring-like position, and works with your body’s natural ability to coil and rebound.
