Saucony to launch new Freedom ISO 2 and Ride ISO in Fall

One of the best received shoes of last year gets an update, and one of the few Sauconys left without ISO gets a shiny new upper

Saucony just announced the update for two of their running shoes: the Freedom and the Ride.

Freedom ISO 2

When the Saucony Freedom ISO launched last year, it was received with great enthusiasm.

The Freedom featured full length EVERUN midsole layer and the ISO upper. Although quite high in price, runners appreciated its superb upper fit and the great cushioning and energy return of the EVERUN material.

The Freedom is planned to return this July with a new tech: a knitted material that Saucony calls ISOKNIT.

The updated FREEDOM will feature a 4mm offset and will weight 9.1 ounces for men and 8.2 inches for women.

We are actually really curious to see how Saucony’s new knit material will play with the ISO upper construction.

Retail price will be $160, same as for the current version.

Ride ISO

The Ride, currently at its 10th version, is a 10mm drop, slightly lighter than 10 ounces cushioned shoe featuring Saucony’s POWERFOAM compound.

For 2018, the Ride will add the EVERUN layer and the ISO upper. It will stay at $120 – and that makes it a very interesting shoe: same price as last year’s model, but with a lot more punch to it.

The Ride ISO will have a 8mm drop and will weight 9.7 ounces for men and 8.5 for women. Available on pre-order on on April 1st and to a larger distribution on May 1st.

We’re looking forward to test both new shoes – stay tuned for the full reviews of both shoes!
