Saucony® Debuts All-New Xodus Ultra

June 21, 2022

As global participation in ultrarunning grows, the brand’s legacy trail shoe arrives ready for the long haul with a reimagined, distance-specific last that delivers ultra-comfort for ultra-distances

WALTHAM, MA (June 21, 2022) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Ultrarunning is booming: according to The State of Ultrarunning 2020, a study conducted by Run Repeat and the International Association of Ultrarunners, there has been a 345 percent increase in global participation of ultramarathons over the past decade. Now, with the arrival of Saucony’s all-new Xodus Ultra, running an ultramarathon, a race longer than a traditional marathon, will be a comfortable, responsive and surefooted ride for both the experienced and novice ultrarunner. With the completely revamped Xodus Ultra, the award-winning Saucony trail line extends to the most demanding of trail endeavors. Overhauled to go the distance, the Xodus Ultra is roomier and comfier, with a distance-specific last, a full-length core of ultralight PWRRUN PB™ cushioning and a redesigned PWRTRAC™ outsole. The Xodus Ultra will be available at saucony.com and select retailers globally beginning June 21.

“With the Xodus Ultra, our mission is to make running long more comfortable and accessible for experienced ultrarunners as well as those just beginning to test longer distances on the trail,” said Katie Pyle, senior product line manager for Saucony Trail. “We did a complete transformation: everything about the new Xodus Ultra is made for the long haul, starting with its new 6mm last, designed specifically to give you more room, comfort and confidence as you tackle the miles. We’ve doubled up on the cushioning for max energy return and the three-piece PWRTRAC outsole delivers grip and protection from rocks to roots to river crossings to scrambles. And just like an ultrarunner, the new Xodus is a resilient, durable and enduring workhorse that craves an adventure—no matter how far.”
