the peg 36 trail looks amazing ! can't wait to read your review guys :)

Jon said...

So what exactly is the new "PowerRun" on the upcoming Saucony models? How is PowerRun vs PowerRun Plus different (Maybe one is full length?). It seems like it's just a re-branded and slightly changed (lighter) EverRun

Does this mean Saucony is getting away from the ISO Fit on the Guide? I actually really liked this fit especially versus the last version of the Guide without it.

I see my questions were answered in today's post. Thanks guys!

Is there a new version of Rincon?

Sam Winebaum said...

Hi Jon,
PWRUN an EVA/TPU blend, a touch of bounce and less harsh than their previous EVA+ etc.. and PWRUN + a TPU bead based midsole lighter and more resilient and I find dynamic than previous TPU Everun. See our reviews links below of Guide 13 and Triumph 17 for details on the foams
I found ISO Fit hit or miss, overly complicated. These new uppers from Saucony are super fine. A super wide midfoot might struggle.

In all of the TRE coverage, I have seen nothing said about what Hoka is doing with the Bondi 7, which I presume is coming out in Fall 2020. Did you learning anything about its update? Thanks for all of your great coverage of this trade show.

Would be nice to see a feature on the smaller companies that presented there, as well.

Does the Floatride Fast Pro make it to 2020?
