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 KD500
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
The KIPRUN KD500 improves propulsion (acceleration) with each stride thanks to the sole geometry combined with the Kalensole foam. You can now make progress and improve your personal best times from 10 km to marathon distance.
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 KD500, 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 KD500 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 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 KD500 with excellent grip on wet terrain, even at top speed.
