Built closer to the foot, ProGrid™ provides greater cushioning without compromising support and durability. ProGrid is created with Respon-Tek™, Saucony’s latest impact deflection technology, which is made from a blend of foams and synthetic rubbers. It creates a platform that dissipates shock while setting the foot up for a smooth, heel-to-toe transition.
Introduced in 1991, a whole generation of runners became addicted to the sweet ride of Grid technology. It uses woven Hytrel™ filaments in a grid configurationthat centers the heel on impact, for cushioning and stability. The physics work a bit like a tennis racquet for a runner’s foot, absorbing and deflecting impacts and protecting the body from the force of the road.
The fastest runners are those who move most efficiently from heel to toe. Flexion Plate technology actually facilitates this crucial motion, guiding the foot from heel strike to forefoot using an impact-resistant piece of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). This dampens much of the joint and bone movement in the forefoot that is caused by the high-impact forces of heel strike, allowing you to toe off with more force and less energy.
Saucony’s Arch-Lock is a simple but effective construction method that wraps around the midfoot area and keeps it snugly in position on the midsole. By keeping the arch where it belongs, you enjoy superior comfort, control and support.
Saucony’s elite cushioning compound - Super Rebound Compound - has gained a huge following. Born from our HRC® technology, SRC in the heel reduces the shock transmitted to the body from impact, and sets the foot up for a smooth, heel-to-toe transition.
One of the best forefoot cushioning materials they’ve developed, HRC is Saucony’s premier cushioning system uses a responsive custom compound of EVA and rubber that provides comfort through the late stages of the gait cycle as well as a smooth toe-off.
Embedded between the EVA and the SRC™ (Super Rebound Compound), the Impact Interface isolates and cushions heel-strike impact so the heel can compress without bottoming out.
Material that monitors heat/cold to keep your feet at a comfortable 82°.
