THE IMPORTANCE OF THE CUSHIONING
To give you optimal comfort and performance when running, we concentrated our attention on the sole which features 2 concepts: - K-Ring: a ring located in the heel to improve cushioning at the rear and spread the shockwave in order to provide effective protection for the body: joints, back, knees, etc. - Kalensole: improves cushioning by 34% and propulsion 25% compared with standard foam and lasts up to 1,000 km.
THE COMFORT OF THE KD PLUS
In order to run regularly over long distances, foot comfort is of the utmost importance. So, we tried to improve the level of comfort with the following: - an ultra comfortable 'half-slipper' upper - enhanced cushioning at the forefoot thanks to a thicker sole - a revised forefoot area - a seamless, single piece of fabric to reduce friction
REBOUND WITH EACH STRIDE
So that you can make progress and improve your personal best times from 10 km to marathon distance, the KIPRUN KD PLUS improves propulsion (acceleration) with each stride thanks to the sole geometry combined with the Kalensole foam.
WHY CHOOSE A LIGHTWEIGHT SHOE?
The research and development studies have shown that a lighter product improves running performance by reducing the consumption of energy. Without compromising on comfort and durability, the design of the KD PLUS uses lighter materials and an optimised sole design. Result: The KIPRUN KD PLUS shoe is 4% lighter than the KIPRUN FAST. Weight: 267g in size 9.
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 or 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 was designed like a car tyre for running efficiently without losing control, even when it is raining. The new sole geometry combined with a new rubber component gives the KIPRUN KD PLUS excellent grip on wet ground, even when running at top speed.
A TEAM OF PASSIONATE ATHLETES TO OFFER A UNIQUE RUNNING EXPERIENCE
The Kiprun KD PLUS is the product of the footwear expertise that Decathlon has acquired over more than 10 years. Caroline and Pierre-Emmanuel (product managers), Stéphane (product engineer) and Nicolas (designer), who are all running enthusiasts, designed your Kiprun shoes with the help of a network of ambassadors: the runners at Decathlon, sports coaches and you! In this way, we choose the components, create the prototypes and test and validate the products with laboratory and field tests.
All our shoes are field tested for wear and comfort by male runners not associated with Decathlon. The aim is to test, improve and validate the product as objectively as possible so that you can run without a problem.
