The height difference between the back and front of the sole is 10 mm.
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE CUSHIONING
In order to run long distances while delivering maximum comfort and performance, we have devoted special attention to the sole using 2 technologies:
- K-Ring: ring located in the heel to improve cushioning at the rear and spread the shockwave in order to effectively protect the body (joints, back, knees, etc.)
.- Kalensole: improves cushioning by 34% and energy return by 25% when compared with conventional foam and lasts up to 1,000 km.
REBOUND WITH EACH STRIDE
Better performance and times in the 10 km marathon thanks to the UP'BAR technology and TPE (Pebax®) located under the sole, the KIPRUN FAST 2 improves dynamism (rebound) and provides additional propulsion with each stride.
ADAPTED TO ALL TYPES OF STRIDES
Thanks to the exclusive K-ONLY technology and denser foam located under the first metatarsal, you no longer need to know your stride type (over-pronator, under-pronator, neutral)!
A 6-month study conducted with the Luxembourg Institute of Health* showed that the K-Only concept suits all strides.
The key figures of the study:
- 372 runners
- over 12,558 training sessions
- 12,094 hours of exercise
- 116,723 km covered
EXCELLENT ROAD-HOLDING ABILITY ON WET ROADS AND BENDS
Our sole is designed like a car tyre for running performance without losing control in wet conditions.
The new geometry of the sole combined with a new rubber component provides the KIPRUN KS LIGHT with excellent grip on wet terrain, even at high speeds.
NEW FEATURES OF THE KIPRUN FAST 2
In 2020, we have improved the KIPRUN FAST 2 thanks to your feedback over the last 2 years:
- new rubber on the outer sole for 35% more grip
- upper with harder-wearing mesh
