Saucony Ride 6 Sneak Peek

May 3rd, 2013

No, you are not having deja vu. Yes, we did recently post a sneak peek of the Ride 6, but now it’s Saucony’s turn to chime in and provide a more in-depth look at the development of this popular neutral trainer.

We agree with Saucony that the updates to this shoe are all about the details, because the current Ride 5 is a pretty sweet shoe already (and Runner’s World Best Buy award winner). Here’s what we’re most excited about with the update:

  • Lightest Saucony Ride to date
  • PowerGrid cushioning replacing ProGrid
  • More flexible forefoot

Read Saucony’s full blog post for more about these updates and to check out several more design schematics.

Saucony Ride 6 Sneak Peek

March 26th, 2013

Saucony Ride 6 Women's Shoe

The Saucony Ride has been a dependable trainer for neutral runners since its debut in 2008. With every update, we’ve seen the Ride evolve into a sleeker shoe, losing weight and dropping to a balanced 8mm offset, becoming an excellent option for runners looking to pick up the pace or for those simply seeking a great run.

The Ride 6 looks to follow this trend, with a few minor updates that should result in a smoother and more flexible running feel. Saucony lists weights of 9.9 oz for a Men’s size 9 and 8.8 oz for a Women’s 8. Those weights are very close to the current Saucony Ride 5.

What to Watch For

  • Upgraded Cushioning Tech: Like several of Saucony’s other Fall 2013 updates, the Ride 6 receives an upgrade to PowerGrid for reduced weight and improved impact protection.
  • Improved Ride: Increased forefoot flex grooves and a reduced midfoot shank makes for a smoother transition from heel to toe.
  • Added Toe Spring: A 5mm increase in toe spring makes for a more responsive toe-off and gives the shoe a sleeker silhouette.
