Saucony Mad River TR 2 Initial Video Review, Shoe Details, and Comparisons

Article by Sam Winebaum

Saucony Mad River TR 2 ($110)

Update: Read our full multi tester review HERE

The Mad River gets a new EVA/TPU blend PWRUN midsole (shared with the Peregrine 10)  and new upper. It continues the PWRTRAC outsole with customizable traction and drainage locators. The upper continues with the ability to lace through 2 sets of eyelets as well and gaiter compatibility. 

The Mad River TR 2 weighs approximately 10.75 oz/ 305 g in a US9. The stack height is 28.5mm at the heel, 24.5 mm at the forefoot with a 4mm drop. It releases July 2020 for a very reasonable $110.

In the video, I detail the shoe’s features and fit, take it on two trail runs in beautiful Park City and compare, in an A/B test one on each foot, to the Peregrine 10 with similar (1.5 mm more for Mad River) stack and same midsole foam. Turns out they run and feel quite different with it seems the difference in outsole design, more midsole stack height and no rock plate in the Mad River being the key factors. Please watch the video for all the details. Full multi tester review soon.
