Saucony Ride 14 vs. Triumph 19
The heel-to-toe drop of both models is 8mm.
The main difference is in the midsole foam: the Ride 14 uses PWRRUN, which is firmer, while the Triumph 19 has the latest version, PWRRUN+, which gives a softer cushioning under the foot and is slightly more responsive. However, it’s a matter of personal preference.
The shoes are very similar (especially with their softer upper of the new Ride 14), with perhaps a slight advantage for the Triumph.
Ride or Triumph: which one to choose?
Until 2021 there was not much debate: the Ride won for its versatility, reasonable weight, and more breathable upper. With over 10.6 oz/300 g on the scale, there was little reason to go with the Triumph unless you wanted softer cushioning.
The arrival of the Saucony Triumph 19 changes everything: both shoes are now the same weight and offer comfortable and relatively responsive cushioning. Plus, the new T19 upper is much more breathable.
If you’re looking for a high-end shoe with comfortable cushioning: go for the Triumph 19.
However, if you prefer firmer cushioning or don’t want to spend 170 Euros on a shoe, then the Saucony Ride 14 is for you!Back to the comparison tool Back to the comparison tool
