Beat your PR every time you run in the Breakthru 2
Upper - Breathable Structure
The Breakthru 2 from Saucony is formed from a soft, breathable Mesh construction that allows air to permeate the interior layers to keep the foot cool and comfortable as you power through each stride. This is unified with an internal RUNDRY Collar Lining which secures the heel while wicking moisture away from the surface of the skin allowing the foot to stay dry and the wearer more focused.
Merged over to secure the mesh in place, flexfilm overlays supports the mesh structure from torsion and any sharp vigorous movements. It wraps and cradles, hugging the foot in all the right places without ever getting in the way for superior support and comfort. At the forefoot an Open Toe Box design is seamless and offers superior comfort, further augmenting a sock-like feel.
Midsole - Responsive Compound
The Midlayer foam compound of the Breakthru 2 utilises heel-to-toe POWERGRID cushioning. This proprietary midsole component combines shock dissipating GRID technology with Powerfoam material to create a cushioned and a responsive ride. POWERGRID is a lightweight, ultra-premium cushioning foam that, ounce for ounce, delivers a smoother and more rebound-filled ride than the competition. This midsole engineering works parrallel with the full length SSL EVA, which is Saucony's premium midsole material for lightweight comfort, rebound and durability with superior impact protection.
The Breakthru 2 is set with Saucony 8mm offset Technology, this is where Cushioning is distributed more evenly between the heel and forefoot in shoes with an 8mm offset. The result? Your body stays in a more balanced and comfortable position with every foot strike.
Outsole - Ground Gripping Carbon
The outsole platform for the Saucony Breakthru 2 is constructed with a blown XT-900 compound throughout. This is a carbon rubber material that offers durable traction and control, helping the wearer deal with fast paced movements and sharp multi directional turns that are fine tuned to excel there performance. Coinciding with the outsole material IBR+ in the forefoot is a lightweight flexible material that offers enhanced cushioning and a responsive ride.
