Saucony Xodus 11 vs. Peregrine 11
These two trail shoes are complementary in the Saucony series: the Xodus is more cushioned with a soft underfoot feel. Conversely, the Peregrine offers a better ground feel but its cushioning is firm and more limited.
The same goes for grip: both shoes provide a great grip. Mud can be a challenge, but that’s the case with the vast majority of trail running shoes. Unless you opt for a specific model, e.g. Soft Ground in the Salomon series.
Finally, with its more stripped-down configuration, the Peregrine is lighter with 30 g/1.1oz less. Nevertheless, both shoes are still over 300 g/10.6 oz, which is objectively heavy.
Peregrine vs. Xodus: Which One Should to Choose?
It’s really a matter of personal preference. If you like a comfortably cushioned, soft underfoot shoe for easy long-distance running, then the Xodus is for you.
If you prefer a good ground feel, while running on trails, then the Peregrine is a better choice. However, its firm cushioning may not lend itself to very long distances such as ultramarathon running. In any case, it’s something that varies from person to person depending on your preferences and experience.Back to the comparison tool Back to the comparison tool
