TECHNICAL INFORMATION

WHY CUSHIONING IS IMPORTANT

We have used two concepts in the sole for comfortably running long distances in good time.
- K-Ring: ring located in the heel to improve cushioning at the rear and spread the shockwave in order to effectively protect the body including joints, back and knees.
- Kalensole: improves cushioning by 34% and energy return by 25% when compared with conventional 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 KIPRUN LONG 2

Your feet need to be comfortable for regular long running sessions.
Improved comfort thanks to:
- a new collar at the rear of the sockliner holds the heel securely in place in the shoe so that it feels extremely snug.
- 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.

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, neutral!
A 6-month study conducted with the Luxembourg Institute of Health* showed that the K-Only concept suits all strides.
The results in a few figures:
- 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 KS LIGHT with excellent grip on wet terrain, even at top speed.

NEW FEATURES OF THE KIPRUN LONG 2

In 2020, we have improved the KIPRUN FAST 2 thanks to your feedback over the last 2 years:
- the forefoot has been improved for more comfort in the arch;
- new rubber on the outer sole to improve grip by over 37 %.

DROP KIPRUN LONG 2

The height difference between the back and front of the sole is 10 mm.

A TEAM OF PASSIONATE ATHLETES TO OFFER A UNIQUE RUNNING EXPERIENCE

The Kiprun LONG 2 is the product of Decathlon's shoe expertise gained over 10 years.
Caroline and Pierre-Emmanuel (product managers), Stéphane (product engineer) and Nicolas (designer) are all running enthusiasts. They designed your Kiprun shoes with the help of a network of ambassadors:the runners at Decathlon, sports coaches and you!
We choose the components, create the prototypes, then test and validate the products with laboratory and field tests.

HOW TO SELECT YOUR SIZE

Choose one size larger than your usual shoe size for optimal comfort.
There should be a 1 cm gap between your big toe and the front of the shoe because your feet swell during physical exercise.
Additional EU half sizes available in 42.5 / 43.5 / 44.5.
