Delivers excellent surface control
The Saucony Omni 16 utilizes the XT-900. It is a carbon rubber material found in the heel area that provides traction. This technology aims to deliver excellent surface control. It is essential in protecting the midsole foam from the hazardous nature of asphalt.
The shoe uses the IBR+ technology that is located in the forefoot area. This flexible and lightweight material enhances cushioning and provides a responsive ride. This outsole material is also used in Saucony Ride 10 and other reliable shoes from Saucony.
Omni 16 is more adaptable and flexible
The Tri-Flex design is utilized to make the underfoot platform more adaptable and flexible. This updated model aims to provide ground contact and adherence to the natural bending of the foot.
The midsole is made up of a responsive foam unit that is called the EVERUN. This material runs the entire length of the shoe, and it aims to provide a resilient and bouncy feeling.
It attenuates the impact shock during the landing phase and responsibly lifts the runner's foot up during the toe-off phase. The Dual Density Super Lite EVA aims to control overpronation without compromising the shoe's lightweight structure, rebound property and durability.
The SRC Landing Zone provides shock absorption to allow a smoother transition. Energy is stored and returned when the runner lifts the foot off the ground.
A Comfortlite Sockliner is used to reduce the pressure on the underside of the foot. This material is molded to the contours of the arch and heel for added comfort.
Saucony provides proper ventilation
The upper of the Saucony Omni 16 is covered with an Engineered Mesh. This technology reduces weight while providing a sock-like fit. It is important in accommodating proper ventilation within the foot chamber.
The Flex Film Overlays are composed of thin films that are welded to the upper area. They are strategically designed for a snug and secure fit. The shoe has a RUNDRY Collar Lining that secures the heel of the runner's foot.
Saucony Omni 16 offers reliable support and comfort
This material keeps the foot dry because of its moisture-wicking properties. Rhe Sauc-Fit feature of the upper aims to deliver a combination of support and comfort. This technology is important in securing the foot at all times.
A heel support unit called the Heel Support Frame is added to the shoe. This technology supports the heel area throughout the gait cycle to prevent wobbling or interior sliding during the running activity.
A Strobel Last is made up of a full-length HRC Strobel Board that’s stitched to the upper for a soft in-shoe feel. It also heightens the cushioning and responsiveness of the shoe.
