Worn by Saucony’s Elite Sprinters, the Showdown provides the ultimate in power down speed in an ultra-lightweight and supportive package. Saucony achieves this feat through the combination of a lightweight but aggressive plate along with their revolutionary ISOFIT upper.
Continuing to utilize an aggressive 10 spike pin plate construction, the Showdown 3 provides unrivalled traction in the world of sprint spikes, promoting maximal power output from the blocks with no chance of slipping and lost momentum. Absolute confidence can be assured with every stride in the Showdown 3, guaranteeing performance to your outright potential. The full length Pebax® plate in the Showdown 3 hasn’t changed much in configuration and appearance from the seriously successful Showdown 2, though on closer inspection it becomes evident that Saucony have trimmed down on the bulk, without compromising on rigidity and support, considerably reducing the weight of the outsole with no detriment to the spikes performance. Overall this results in a strong and dynamic platform with incredible traction and forefoot support, allowing you to stay up on your toes more comfortably, for longer.
The upper of the Showdown 3 is where Saucony have really worked their magic, totally revamping the fit and weight, whilst improving support and comfort! The long awaited introduction of Saucony’s ISOFIT technology into their performance track footwear doesn’t disappoint. The ISOFIT lockdown system overlaid onto an incredibly lightweight Flexifilm synthetic mesh results in a sock-like fit which hugs to the contours and shape of the foot whilst providing amazing support and lockdown onto the plate. Breathable, supportive, lightweight and comfortable, the fit of the Showdown 3 means that there will be no movement of the foot within the shoe, allowing optimal power output.
So if you’re a performance oriented Sprinter competing in distances from 60m up to 400m, then the Showdown is just what you need in your arsenal to ensure incredible acceleration from the holster. The Saucony Showdown 3 is available now in our Line-up of sprint spikes.
