Technical Footwear with Cameron Hanes

Portland, Oregon, June 7, 2023 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Developed by industry experts Dave Dombrow and Kevin Fallon and tested by elite trail running athletes, Speedland unveils the GS:PGH, a highly cushioned, customizable shoe designed for maximum performance and comfort for trail running. The GS:PGH, like all its predecessors, is a limited edition and features cutting-edge technology that was developed in partnership with athlete Cameron Hanes to create the optimal training experience.

Cameron Hanes’ greatest love is traversing the remote wildernesses of the West and Alaska. He shoots his bow every single day of the year, trains in the weight room 7-days a week and runs 200+ mile ultra marathons in the mountains during the off-season in an effort to toughen up for the mental and physical tests that can occur in the backcountry.

“Named after Mount Pisgah, right outside my home near Eugene, Oregon, the PGH has become a vital part of my equipment,” said Cam Hanes,“Running and training is essential for my success in the backcountry.”

“Following Speedlands design philosophy, all our products are constructed of the most premium materials available including the PGH.” said Kevin Fallon, Co-Founder. “As a company, we do not cut corners, there are no compromises and the PGH is the next evolution of the TAM, fitting perfectly into our mission.”

Dave Dombrow, Co-Founder of Speedland, stated, “The PGH is the ultimate trail equipment for long distances. Precision fit is paired with maximum comfort, responsiveness and customizations, continuing Speedland’s legacy of ultra-customizable trail equipment that accommodates a variety of runners.”

The GS:PGH is a durable, high stacked, maximally cushioned trail shoe built for longer distance training days and races. Features such as the PerformFitTM Wrap activated by the BOA® Fit System featuring dual-dial Li2, which allows for zonal control and a connected, secure fit. This fourth commission from Speedland features a unique beaded HTPU outer midsole with a removable, blended Pebax midsole section. Together, the full 37/30 mm midsole stack provides high energy return without sacrificing compression, increasing the lifespan of the shoe far beyond that of standard trail running footwear.

A spacer mesh upper with strategic, high-tenacity fiber reinforcements provides breathability and security over varying terrain, while the Michelin Fiber Lite outsole ensures a sticky grip over any surface. An optional Carbitex GearFlex carbon fiber plate (compatible with all Speedland models) adds propulsion and protection race day, and is sold separately for the ultimate customization.

The GS: PGH is available for pre-order on www.runspeedland.com for $275 to customers within the United States, with an expected delivery date of September 2023. The Carbitex plate is sold separately for $35 allowing for additional customization.

Honoring the trails, Speedland gives 10% of all profits back to regional outdoor organizations chosen by the athletes. At the end of its life cycle, GS:PGH owners can return their equipment to Speedland where it will be disassembled and distributed to its respective recycling facility.
