Sau­cony Kin­vara 5

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - TRI SHOES - SZ


For the past four years Sau­cony has an­nu­ally up­dated their ex­tremely pop­u­lar low pro­file Kin­vara with en­hance­ments, but the Kin­vara 5 fea­tures a sig­nif­i­cant re­design. With added flex­i­bil­ity and dura­bil­ity, the Kin­vara 5 con­tains the ben­e­fits of a min­i­mal­ist shoe with the pro­tec­tion of a thicker mid­sole and in­creased struc­ture. This is achieved thanks to the Lock fit tech­nol­ogy bor­rowed from their rac­ing flats and spikes which locks the foot down on top of the mid­sole

pro- mak­ing for a pow­er­ful toe-off. The mid­sole de­sign also al­lows for a smoother tran­si­tion from heel to foot. Sau­cony changed the ma­te­rial on the heel counter from ear­lier ver­sions mak­ing it softer and re­duc­ing po­ten­tial chaf­ing at the back of the heel. Additional changes in­clude a new mesh ma­te­rial that is as light­weight as the mono-fil­a­ment used be­fore, but has more give and is more durable. The Kin­vara 5 is sure to top triath­letes’ lists of favourite shoes this sea­son.–
