Hard-wearing bottom

The Echelon LE2 employs the brand’s own iBR+ rubber material on the outsole unit. It is designed to be about 30% lighter and provide more cushioning than the conventional blown rubber. It also serves to protect the midsole from abrasion.

Enhanced rebound

The Saucony packs the midsole of the Echelon LE2 with a multitude of technologies to provide wearers with plush cushioning and ensure a steady gait. The highlight feature is the POWERGRID compound, which runs the full length of the sole.

It is manufactured to be 30% more lasting and 15% lighter than the regular foam. It serves to attenuate shock and center the heel upon the footfall and deliver a bounce-back at the toe-off. The dual-density S SL EVA foam is also responsible for cushioning. Described as the brand’s most advanced EVA blend, it serves to provide enhanced rebound and durability.
