Reebok Harmony Road 3 Initial Run Video Review with Details and Comparisons

Article by Sam Winebaum

Reebok Harmony Road 3 ($120)
The Harmony Road is a  well cushioned 31mm heel / 21mm forefoot stack daily trainer. It has a mostly Forever Energy midsole with a rear EVA heel cup and a full carbon outsole. Forever Energy is a TPU based midsole foam with a springy feel contrasting with parent company adidas bouncier softer Boost.  It can be thought of as the daily trainer companion to the Forever Floatride Energy (RTR Review) or Floatride Fast (RTR Review) which are lighter more uptempo or race offerings from Reebok. It weighs 9.6 oz /263 g in my US size M8.5. The fit is true to size for me and generous, yet very secure thanks in large part to the non stretch mid foot Flexweave panels.

Hi Sam, How does this shoe compare to the Saucony Ride ISO 2? I've been running in a pair for about a month and really like them for the most part. That being said, I bought a pair of Reebok Floatride Fast based on your review and absolutely love them. Just ran Grandma's Marathon in them today and feel like they helped me crush my goal and run 3:03. I'll be buying a new pair of trainers pretty soon and was planning on another pair of Rides, but Reebok has really impressed me with the Floatride Fast, so the Harmony Road is now on my radar.

Hi Unknown,
Congratulations on a fantastic Grandma's. Glad the Fast helped. The Ride ISO 2 is a good comparison. Willl need to run Harmony more but I can say they both share a stable heel with a flexible lively forefoot. The Ride's foam while fine just isn't as much fun or springy as the Forever Energy and I think the Harmony forefoot has a big broader more continuous contact. Have a smooth recovery!

Hi Unknown,
One more thing... I see you say you liked Ride ISO 2 "for the most part". What didn't you like?

Sam,
Sorry I didn't leave my name- Ryan Shrum. The two things that don't like about the Ride are the sock liner and the lacing system. The sock liner at the heel has folded inward on my pair. Sometimes when I put them on it folds under my heel. I find the laces are a little cumbersome to get cinched down correctly. Minor details on an otherwise great shoe. I switched over from the New Balance 880. The Ride is far superior in my opinion.

FYI, Before the Reebok Floatride Fast, I had been racing marathons in the Adidas Boston for several years. Looking forward to a review on the Adidas Boston 8.

Hi Sam,
Its a great daily trainer - I am very impressed with it, great upper, very responsive, stable and fairly light. I hope you do comparisons with the New Balance 1080 v9, Saucony Triumph iso 5, New Balance propel, Hoka Clifton 6 and Rincon etc. Looking forward to a full review.
Cheers
Steve

Man, Reebok has been making some smart, smart looking shoes. Nice blend of understated cool.

Thoughts vs New Balance Propel? Seem to be quite similar

Sam Winebaum said...

Hi Anonymous,
Good comparison. Propel is for sure bouncier than Harmony which has a more springy feel. Harmony is more stable at the rear. Depends on preferences but if you want a stable, fast, springy feel Harmony. If you want a trainer that has more of a performance focused and bounce then Propel. Both great!
