WEIGHT: M 303g, W 269g MIDSOLE HEIGHT: 24-14 (10mm) COMPOUND: DNA LOFT DUROMETER: 53c/63c
Leverage the innovation & success of the Glycerin into Transcend – same consumer, same benefits, different biomechanics (+/- GuideRails)
LATERAL GUIDERAIL – the lateral GuideRail is more about height than hardness; supports calcaneal adduction
FULL-LENGTH DNA LOFT FOR SUPER SOFT CUSHIONING – less grooves through the midsole, as this will cause the material to bottom out.
Now we have such better material compound (DNA Loft), there is more emphasis on materials, not geometry.
STRUCTURED 3D FIT PRINT SADDLE - snug arch, secure fit
COMFORT COLLAR FOR PLUSH FEEL - step-in comfort; wrap around exposed skin at ankle; structures heel
STRETCH DOUBLE JACQUARD MESH - Engineered mesh that has 2 layers; we can engineer the interaction of
the two layers. Transcend 7 has more nylon in top layer: more elasticity, conforms to foot, more pliable, softer
touch. More open/forgiving vamp area.
CO-MOLDED MEDIAL GUIDERAIL – support for rearfoot eversion
- Benefit of co-molding is less layers, less skin, better integration between materials. Same durometer, different process.
HPR FOR DURABILITY IN HIGH-WEAR ZONE
PLUSH TRANSITION ZONE – midfoot splays to increase ground contact to improve stability and create smoother transition
FULL-LENGTH, THINNER GREEN RUBBER (3MM IN HEEL AND FOREFOOT) – carbon rubber base,
durable, light, good traction; allows for a more cushioning forefoot feeling from DNA Loft
LIGHTER – 20g lighter; due to different outsole material.
