Salomon Speedcross Pro Trail Running Shoe
Stability, support and grip, the Speedcross Pro epitomises the essence of what’s needed from a trail specific shoe. The new pro edition is distinguished from its sister models thanks to a re-worked anti debris mesh, welded Sensifit and the inclusion of Salomon’s Endofit technology for improved foot wrapping and support. Utilising a fusion of technical performance designs throughout its construction, you can be sure to conquer your trail.
Durability, Breathable Performance, Comfort
Drawing inspiration from Salomon’s elite S-LAB range, the Speedcross Pro is not to be overlooked. The upper is a technical smorgasbord of trail innovation, putting to use some of the best features Salomon can offer. The main body construction features an anti debris mesh that works alongside a water resistant textile to offer a fusion of protection, breathability and comfort, across a range of conditions. (The inclusion of the anti debris mesh equips the shoe to provide better breathability when compared to others in the Speedcross range). Enhancing the durability and overall protection offered from the upper, the Speedcross Pro employs a comprehensive mud guard system, wrapping around the toe area and lower section of the shoe. Improving structure and the overall longevity of the uppers lifespan.
Enveloping the foot with support and comfort, the Speedcross Pro employs varying technologies to offer the best fit possible. Externally the Speedcross Pro features Welded Sensifit technology – A system designed to work with the lacing system to cradle the foot from the midsole through to the lace system, providing a stable, precise, snug fit. Moulded into the shoe and bonded with the upper to reduce components, excess bulk and weight, whilst improving comfort on the trail.
Working in unison with the Sesifit design, the internal structure of the Speedcross Pro makes use of Salomon’s Endofit technology – Exclusive to Salomon, Endofit is an internal sleeve design that hugs the forefoot and improves feedback and foot wrapping. Giving you greater underfoot intuition and greater support throughout your run.
One of the final components to the shoes precision fit technology, is the simple and user friendly quick lace system. Quicklace is a single Kevlar string fed through friction free eyelets. As you pull, the lace closes evenly for a better fit, which delivers precision adjustment and a secure lock down. Finished with a lace pocket to neatly stash away any excess that may get in your way.
Locking out the various trail debris that can work its way to the internal environment of the shoe, a simple tongue cover stops debris from entering the shoe before it has the chance. Eliminating potential discomfort and irritation to the wearer.
Midsole – Responsive Cushioning
Offering supportive comfort whilst retaining a lightweight embodiment the midsole utilises a dual fusion of Salomon’s proprietary Lightweight muscle and injected EVA. Forming a differentiating density – a denser foam to prevent medial collapse and a lightweight EVA for smooth cushioning and gait cycle transitioning. The formant assists with keeping weight down and maximising responsive underfoot cushioning.
Internally the Speedcross Pro sports an EVA moulded sockliner, an adaptive, malleable mould that provids excellent next to foot cushioning and anatomical support from your first mile to your list.
Outsole – Grip, Lots of Grip
Employing a non marking mud and snow Contagrip outsole, the Speedcross Pro is equipped and ready to tackle the most demanding of trails. Deep set, aggressive lugs yield tremendous grip across a varied range of terrain and conditions, ascent or decent, rain or shine, the Speedcross Pro delivers solid grip and traction.
