Saucony Redeemer ISO 2 updates

Delivers surface traction and responsiveness

The Saucony Redeemer ISO 2 makes use of XT-900 carbon rubber, a highly durable compound that’s placed in the high-wear areas of the outsole. It shields the foam unit from wear and tear while also bringing surface traction.

This material is also utilized in the Omni 16 and other well-known shoes from Saucony. 

IBR+ or Injection Blown Rubber covers the middle part of the tread. This compound, while being able to protect and provide traction, is also capable of adding some more cushioning for the foot because of its springy and responsive nature.

Redeemer ISO 2 provides foot-flexibility

The Tri-Flex design is made up of a network of grooves that enable foot-flexibility and adaptability to the ground.

The SSL EVA or Saucony SuperLite EVA foam makes up the primary midsole of the Saucony Redeemer ISO 2. As it is hinted in its namesake, it is designed to be lightweight. It carries the foot throughout the running session, cushioning it and keeping it secure.

An EVERUN topsole adds more cushioning for the underfoot. It’s soft, yet it’s capable of distributing impact shock evenly when taking each step, thereby unlocking smooth transitions through the gait cycle.

Saucony’s Media Post corrects overpronation 

A Medial Post is placed in the midfoot section. It acts as a foundation for the foot. It corrects overpronation by supporting the arch and allowing it to assume a more neutral position.

An 8mm Polyurethane Sockliner further adds cushioning. It relative thickness allows the foot to feel a supple underfoot experience, which is helpful when it comes to addressing sore tendons, stressed muscles, and overworked footpads.

Cools the foot and keeps it dry

Engineered Mesh is a material that has the resemblance of cloth. It’s soft and stretchy. Ventilation pores in its design accommodate airflow, cooling the foot and keeping it dry.

The ISOFIT system is a fit construction that allows runners to get an agreeable fit without worrying about blisters or hot spots. It is made up of a midfoot cage that’s directly connected to the lacing system, and a soft sleeve that replaces the lower part of the shoe’s tongue unit.

Saucony Redeemer ISO 2 offers secure and sock-like fit

There’s still a shoe-tongue, but it doesn’t run all the way to the bottom of the instep. This Saucony fit-system fundamentally allows the upper to provide a secure and sock-like fit that’s near-seamless.

The Foundation Platform is a shoe-last that welcomes those who have wider foot-dimensions. Its roomy disposition also allows the use of custom orthotics.
