10 MM DROP
The height difference between the back and front of the sole is 10 mm.
WHY CHOOSE A LIGHTWEIGHT SHOE?
The research and development studies have shown that a lighter product improves running performance by reducing energy consumption. To design the KS LIGHT, there was no compromise in terms of comfort and durability and the decision was taken to use lighter components and an optimised sole design. As a result, The KIPRUN KS LIGHT shoe is 12% lighter than the KIPRUN LONG. Weight: 290 g in size 9.
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: ring located in the heel to improve the 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 propulsion 25% compared with standard foam and lasts up to 1,000 km.
DID YOU SAY STABLE?
A stable shoe that facilitates the roll-through of the foot and reduces the effort needed to control the foot and the heel for a more relaxed foot motion. We have increased the surface supporting the foot and added reinforcement at the back of the heel.
THE COMFORT OF THE KS LIGHT
In order to run regularly over long distances, foot comfort is of the utmost importance. We have therefore sought to improve the level of comfort thanks to the following: - a new collar at the back of the shoe ensuring excellent heel support and ideal softness. - a preformed sole made of open-cell PU (polyurethane) foam. - a reworked forefoot area for more comfort. - a seamless, single piece of fabric to reduce friction.
EXCELLENT ROAD-HOLDING ABILITY ON WET ROADS AND BENDS
Our sole was designed like a car tyre for effective running without any loss of control when it rains. 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 top speed.
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 running hours - 116,723 km covered
