Saucony® Launches All-New Ride 15 TR and Ride 15 TR GTX®
Road-to-Trail Crossover Provides Accessibility, Instills Confidence for Trail Running Newcomers
WALTHAM, MA (October 11, 2022) – The popularity of trail running has never been greater. With an estimated 20 million participants, trail running is one of the world’s fastest growing sports (World Athletics). With momentum continuing to accelerate, thanks to both new runners and more traditional road runners hitting the dirt, global performance running lifestyle brand Saucony today announces the launch of the Ride 15 TR. Engineered with a comfort-first sensation, the Ride 15 TR is a road-to-trail crossover that delivers a versatile and protective package that’s lighter, softer and faster. Built with a new PWRRUN™ foam cushioning formula, a low-profile PWRTRAC™ outsole and a lightweight protective mesh upper, the Ride 15 TR is a trail-worthy shoe that performs from the front door to the forest path. For runners eager to embrace the elements, the Ride 15 TR GTX, engineered with Gore® Invisible Fit technology, provides waterproof protection in the same flexible fit and feel as the Ride 15 TR. Both the Ride 15 TR and Ride 15 TR GTX are now available at saucony.com and select retailers globally.
“The Ride 15 TR is all about providing accessibility, especially for trail newcomers,” said Katie Pyle, senior product line manager for Saucony Trail. “Many new trail runners are choosing to keep it simple, running from their front door to their local trail head. Regardless of whether they’re on the pavement or pine needles, they want a go-to shoe that is light and agile yet instills confidence. In creating the Ride 15 TR, we didn’t have to look far to deliver a shoe that could do it all. Taking the proven road features of the Ride 15, a favorite of new runners for its heel-to-toe smoothness, we added even more soft cushioning, plenty of off-road grip and a durable upper. Finally, since trail running is not always a fair-weather sport, the Ride 15 TR GTX provides the best-in-class waterproof protection to keep your feet dry and warm through wet and rainy conditions.”
