Weighing in at 11.4 ounces, the Triumph is definitely on the heavier side for a trainer, but most of that weight is strategically placed underfoot to maximize cushioning and comfort. And that feeling persists throughout the duration of your run and on every subsequent run (we’ve now put 250K on one pair and can’t tell any difference from day one). This cushioning primarily results from the full-length EVERUN midsole which both absorbs impact and maximizes energy return. This makes the Triumph ideal for your longest runs and races, and should be considered a necessity for marathon training.
Also new to the Triumph ISO 5 is the addition of an interwoven, breathable mesh upper which, when combined with the existing ISOFIT technology–which adapts to the shape and movement of your feet–provides an exceptionally cool and comfortable feel that securely locks the foot in place. The FORMFIT contoured footbed simultaneously cradles your foot, providing a custom, sock-like fit and pillow-like comfort. Those who suffer from underpronation, a.k.a. supination, will also appreciate the support and stability that provided by the combined construction of midsole and upper.
The shoe also features a new last (the shape of the mold that the shoe is constructed from) that offers a much wider forefoot and improved traction in the heel. The outsole features the same crystal rubber that was introduced to the Freedom ISO, which helps add to its overall durability and lifespan, expected to last as long as 1,000K.
Saucony continues to improve its stable of dependable and performance-driven shoes. The Kinvara for ultimate speed, the Ride for comfortable cushioning, the Freedom for versatile performance and now the Triumph for maximum cushioning and longevity.
