Tech Talk: The Transcend 2

January is almost over. Did you start off your year with gear that inspires you to run? If you are a runner that needs a supportive shoe – meaning you need some stability to help with pronation – we are excited to talk about the Transcend 2 and take you through what’s new.

The Transcend 2 helps you <motocross announcer’s voice> rise above the run just like the first edition. This shoe is the ultimate Float experience with unbeatably plush and the smoothest, most luxurious ride, attuned to your own unique biomechanics.

The Transcend 2 is fully loaded top to bottom. The specially designed upper includes dual mesh and no-sew tunnels takes the plush feel to a new level. The fresh new design uses vibrant colors to bring the Ideal Pressure Zones to life, highlighting their importance as a tool to distribute pressure evenly in the heel, mid-foot and forefoot.


And now let’s talk about the technology! <short pause while we put on our lab coats and glasses to talk tech>

Super DNA! We invented DNA cushioning to adapt to runners. Then we raised the bar and invented Super DNA that provides the ultimate cushioned ride that still adapts to your every stride and 25% more cushioning!

Guide Rail System. The guide rail system revolutionize traditional stability by allowing your hips, knees and joints to move with their unique motion path while you run – all without traditional posts.

Rounded Heel. Our rounded heel is a fancy name we use for the rounded and reduced heel on our shoe. It aligns your stride naturally and easily.

Okay, we got carried away. If you want even more information about the Transcend 2, listen to Danielle’s talk about the shoe in this video. Ready to rise above the run?
