Saucony’s Kinvara Pro, featuring Speedroll Technology, launching August 1, uses three of the brand’s cushioning compounds: PWRRUN PB, placed closest to the foot and “delivering 90 percent energy return”, a foundation of PWRRUN for foot protection and durability when in contact with the ground and for comfort, PWRRUN+ sockliner. Sandwiched between the cushioning system is a three-quarter carbon-fiber plate “delivering a gentle forward roll,” the S-curve midsole shape and flexible forefoot provide a “lightweight and efficient feel” for daily training. A “durable and supportive upper built for everyday use” completes the Kinvara Pro package.

“This year, as we celebrate Saucony’s 125th anniversary, we look back on how innovation, evolution and an unwavering focus on the runner have always been part of Saucony’s deep-rooted heritage,” said Brian Moore, senior vice president of global product for Saucony. “The Endorphin Collection, with Speedroll Technology, opened a new chapter in the brand’s legacy of innovation, delivering effortless race day speed for the ultimate go-fast experience. Yet, regular runners told us they wanted to experience a PB-powered, carbon-plated ride on training days as well. As an industry leader in the geometry, foam and plate formula, we believe an efficient and effortless ride should be available to everyone and on every run. The all-new Kinvara Pro democratizes our innovation so that every runner can appreciate an efficient and effortless running experience, ultimately realizing the best version of themselves day in and day out.”

The Kinvara Pro will be available in men’s sizes 7-15 and women’s sizes 5-12.
