PUMA entered the carbon plate race with the Deviate Nitro in 2021. Towards the end of 2022, the brand enhanced its exponent with the PUMA Deviate Nitro 2. As a design update to the successful launch, PUMA has released its latest model, the Deviate NITRO 2 Electrocharged.
With the new Electrocharged colourway, it features a combination of Royal Sapphire and Elektro Purple. This bold new colour scheme is meant to stand out as you light up the track, hitting those personal bests along the way. The two colours are combined in a gradient finish to increase its striking appeal.
As with its award-winning predecessor, the updated Deviate Nitro 2 includes a full-length layer of the NITRO Elite foam. The foam in the midsole provides supreme cushioning along with maximum propulsion. The NITRO Elite foam surrounds the PWRPLATE technology. It enables a higher energy transfer at the toe-off thanks to its innovative platform design.
Furthermore, the upper is crafted from a breathable mesh. In addition, it offers extra padding and grip around the ankles, which prevents heel slip – a pet peeve amongst runners. The Underneath of the shoe provides great traction over the run or race distance.
For some of the technical details from the release, the Deviate NITRO 2 Electrocharged has a stack height of 30mm on the forefoot and 38mm on the heel. Furthermore, it has 8mm HTD and a weight of 262g for the average men’s shoe. Additionally, the women’s variant has an average weight of 214g.
Effortless running has never looked and felt better than the Deviate NITRO 2 Electrocharged.
The running shoe is available for both men and women and is available online at PUMA.com. Additionally, it’s also available in stores across the country, including PUMA stores, Totalsports and SportsSA online. It has a retail price of R3,999.
