We just got in a few new top of the line S Lab products from Salomon and we’re pretty stoked. The shoes are light, fast and ready to tackle aggressive trails!
The S Lab Sense Ultra is the shoe of choice for many of Salomon’s elite athletes. Weighing in at only 7.7 ounces this shoe still has a ton of protection for the foot thanks to a carbon plate in the forefoot. If you’re looking for a fast and minimal trail racing shoe that still offers plenty of grip and protection then this is your jam!
The S Lab Speed is Athlete tested in the British fells and built for speed, this is the referential racing shoe to move quickly across the most demanding, wet terrain. Still weighing in at only 9.4 ounces, this shoe has a ton of Salomon’s sticky rubber in the form of large lugs that will bite into slippery or technical terrain. The shoe is a bit softer in the midsole than the sense and as a result it is actually a bit more forgiving on harder surfaces.
The S Lab Wings Soft Ground is the workhorse of the bunch. This is a more substantial shoe that offers a bit more cushioning and support for longer runs or for those who know that they need a more substantial shoe underfoot. This is the softground version of the shoe meaning that it has a bit more rubber on the outsole that is more suited to mucky terrain. This extra rubber also increases the durability of the shoe and helps it to perform exceedingly well in technical terrain where traction is paramount.
