Updates to Puma Mobium Ride v2

  • The 2nd version of the Puma Mobium Ride was created to deliver superb performance and service to runners who are used to heel striking. It features some specially designed components the make each step more responsive and agreeable. Heel striking becomes more responsive and stable because of an added elastic band that works with the sole unit.
  • The outsole unit of this running shoe makes use of two separate rubber technologies, which provide a specific service to runners. One of these rubber compounds protects the sole unit from wear and abrasion, while the other one adds a bit of cushioning to each step for a more responsive toe-off.
  • The sole unit was designed to function alongside the natural mechanics of the foot. The Windlass Chassis expands or spreads just like how the foot pad expands when stepping on the ground. An elastic band that’s placed just below the mid-sole unit encourages the platform to give more springiness to each step.
  • The upper of the Puma Mobium Ride v2 uses a seamless construction to prevent irritation and encourage natural foot movement. The materials used for this section are soft and pliable, thus ensuring that the foot is protected from irritation as it moves naturally through the gait cycle.

Puma Mobium Ride v2 size and fit

The Puma Mobium Ride v2 is true to its size. It follows the standard measurement schemes when it comes to its length. It has a medium width when it comes to its heel and mid-foot areas. The forefoot section is slightly wider to encourage natural toe splaying. It accommodates runners who have feet that are medium-sized.


Outsole

The EverTrack is an abrasion-resistant compound that protects the sole unit from wear. Found in critical areas of the outsole, it efficiently shields the shoe and the foot from wear, tearing and other harmful effects brought about by the surface or by road debris. Striking on the heel is more protected and supported.

The EverRide+ is another outsole rubber compound and it’s meant to add cushioning to each step. The material itself is responsive, so toe-offs become smoother and more enabled. It’s also a durable outsole component.

The Mobium Band is an elastic unit that snakes across the outsole in a figure eight pattern. As the runner goes through the gait cycle, the band stretches and relaxes. When pressure is applied to it, the band reacts as a means of preparing itself for delivering a springiness to each step.


Midsole

The Windlass Chassis is a mid-sole design that follows each movement made by the foot. It changes in proportion, height and length as the foot transitions from the heel to the toe.

The forefoot area benefits from Expansion Pods, which deliver a well-cushioned platform that’s flexible and durable. These pods attenuate shock and prepares the foot for a more responsive and effective toe-off.

The Supreme Ride sock liner is made from Molded EVA. It adds cushioning and flexibility in order to keep it comfortable throughout the activities. Its mid-foot section is able to cradle the arch, thus giving mild stance correction to get a more stable and balanced ride.


Upper

The upper unit of the Puma Mobium Ride v2 uses dual mesh, which do not have stitching or seams. It keeps the foot free from irritation while maintaining a breathable and comfortable coverage.

The Adaptive Fit 2.0 follows the natural shape of the foot. A wider forefoot shape lets the toes spread naturally, allowing the runner to experience a more comfortable and natural fit when wearing this running shoe.

The traditional lace-up closure uses shoe laces that do not unravel easily. Extra eyelets can be used to secure the collar and heel for a more customizable fit.
