When Saucony unveiled the 10th generation of Ride defined the Saucony Ride as a “story rooted in a rigorous dedication to innovation and endless refinement”. A decade later, the spirit of Ride 10 is focused on “redefining the dynamic connection between the runner and the road”. The 10th rendition of the brand’s neutral-cushioned icon, available now at Simply Sports shops, is once again engineered to reveal “a new interpretation of what is perhaps the perfect Ride”.
“The new Ride 10 is all about one thing: the runner,” said Doug Smiley, business unit manager for Saucony footwear. “In comparison to the last 9 models, we could’ve made this latest rendition either good, better or best. Instead, we aimed at perfection. In listening to runners every day, they continue to tell us that light is right and fit is fluid. The new Ride combines the runner-inspired innovations of a high-performance trainer with the highly responsive ride of a track-honed racing shoe. We know that every run will feel like a ‘perfect 10’ in the new Ride.”

Cushioning and Responsiveness Redefined
The new Ride 10 features a reengineered outsole and midfoot configuration: The TRI-FLEX outsole has been reconfigured for the optimal blend of flexibility and protection. Not only did the designers remove the
SRC (Super Rebound Compound) landing zone, allowing for a smoother transition, they upgraded the midsole compound from SSL (Saucony Super Lite) EVA to PowerFoam. PowerFoam is an injected molded compound that is lighter and 50% more responsive than the SSL EVA, resulting in an extremely responsive feel. Additionally, the Ride 10 features Saucony’s EVERUN Topsole construction for enhanced energy return and continuous cushioning throughout the run.
Ride Dynamics: Adaptive and Fluid
The Ride 10 features a brand new engineered mesh upper that not only provides enhanced breathability, but is stronger and more flexible than standard mesh. Engineered mesh, both strong and flexible, helps to support the foot yet provide an incredibly dynamic, adaptive and fluid fit that moves with the runner’s every step. A woven wrap adds additional structure and support around the heel area.
The shoe’s 8mm heel-to-toe offset positions the foot during impact in a way that creates a greater range of motion for the Gastrocnemius-Soleus-Achilles tendon system, allowing for a more powerful running stride.
Runner's World: "The Ride 10 has a great combination of cushioning, flexibility, and is still light weight,” Bill Harris, a fast masters runner from Allentown, Pennsylvania.
Road Trail Run: "The Ride 10 is a great choice for the runner who wants one shoe for many types of workouts from long easy miles to tempo and even longer races. I am predicting the Ride 10 will be one of the most popular trainers of 2017". Score: 9.85 out of 10.
