SALOMON S/LAB 2022:
TWO ASSSITED PLATE SHOES AND MUCH MORE

The demands for more technical running footwear, apparel and gear increases every year as the top athletes on the trail, the road and the track continue to push the boundaries of what is possible—both in terms of where they run and how fast they move. Whether establishing new Fastest Known Times (FKTs) on legendary trails, besting trail race records or shattering longstanding road and track times, the notion of what’s humanly possible seems to be limitless these days. New technology in trail and road running shoes has certainly played a role in these efforts.

The Salomon S/LAB running range for Spring/Summer 22 is designed for runners whose goal is to  compete at the highest level, or at least better themselves every time they lace up their shoes and put their toes on the starting line. Through collaborative development efforts with top athletes like trail running legend Kilian Jornet, the S/LAB running range offers a number of technical footwear and apparel options designed to help athletes go fast and feel light.

Most notably for Spring/Summer ’22, Salomon brings a composite fiber plate to its road road-running range with the S/LAB Phantasm CF, and updates the ultra-light and precise S/LAB Pulsar trail running shoe (Kilian’s shoe of choice) with a Softground version designed to tackle more technical terrain.

ENERGY BLADE: THE NEW TRAIL BASE

To reduce the gap opened by carbon plates that have been in other brands for years, Salomon has developed a new technology called Energy Blade. The basis of it, as claimed by the French brand, is to adopt an original approach to the development of carbon-coated footwear.

For this, an insert technology has been created that will adjust to the needs of different types of runners. This involves adjusting the insert material on each Salomon running shoe model, as well as the precise placement of the insert within the shoe to meet the needs of certain categories of runners.

We are now going to see how it is reflected in each case.

 

SALOMON S/LAB PHANTASM CF

Designed with Salomon’s Energy Blade technology, a rocker sole geometry and a super soft foam compound, the S/Lab Phantasm CF is the fastest road running shoe Salomon has ever created. The shoe features a composite fiber plate that is made using a unique embroidery manufacturing process, which allows it to vary in stiffness in specific areas under the foot to promote faster forward propulsion from landing to toe-off, and to help to save waste. Salomon’s signature rocker geometry, called R. Camber, ensures a quick transition so you spend less time on the ground, and more time moving forward.

Energy Surg, a lightweight, springy and super-soft foam compound—powers your stride and works with the R.Camber sole geometry to deliver fast, smooth transitions from one stride to the next.

The upper of the S/Lab Phantasm CF is made from Matryx material—an ultra-premium, highly durable, mesh-like material that makes it lightweight and super breathable. The result is an elite road running shoe built to deliver flat-out speed and a dynamic ride.

SALOMON S/LAB PULSAR SOFTGROUND

In Spring/Summer 2021, Salomon released the S/Lab Pulsar, an ultra-light trail-running shoe that helped Kilian Jornet break the 16-year-old Sierre-Zinal course record in Switzerland in 2019. This year, Salomon adds a Softground version of the S/LAB Pulsar. The S/LAB Pulsar Softground is fast, lightweight (200g), and will keep you secure on muddy or wet trails.

It still has Salomon’s lightest midsole, but the outsole now boasts longer lugs (4.5 mm) and a new, ultra-grippy lug construction to keep you safe on technical terrain. Thanks to the reinforced and breathable Matryx mesh, the shoe cradles your foot like a glove, while strategic cushioning helps keep you agile on that technical terrain.

S/LAB BONATTI GORE-TEX™ SHAKEDRY

The S/LAB GORE-TEX™ Shakedry is a windproof and waterproof jacket that will protect you from the elements on a trail run or hike while remaining breathable for optimal comfort.

The superlight GORE-TEX® Shakedry fabric breathes exceptionally well for waterproof fabric, which minimizes sweat discomfort. You’ll forget that you are even wearing it thanks to the MotionFit™ 360° patterning that offers complete mobility while running intense trails.

Keep the jacket around your waist when you don’t need it, and conveniently pull it on over your pack when the conditions get tough.

GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™

It is a fabric that uses ultralight materials with a great capacity for water repelling and breathability, although one of its most interesting qualities is that nor Gore-Tex neither Salomon have reveal no data about the waterproof and breathability. While we have already tested a jacket, Montbell Peak Dry Shell certifies a 50/80 membrane, endorsed by Gore-Tex, carried out by Montbell, in which they indicate that the Gore-Tex SHAKEDRY fabric has a waterproof membrane of 50,000 mm and a breathability of 80,000.

For us to get an idea, the jacket needed to run Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc must be 10,000mm/10,000 and a third-layer mountaineering jacket is around 28,000mm/80,000. Thus, this one promises excellent water repelling and breathability that multiplies by 8 the mandatory equiptment in the UTMB.

SALOMON S/LAB NSO TEE

The S/LAB NSO Tee harnesses next-generation oxide mineral technology to help with performance and recovery. The NSO Active technology concentrates the oxide mineral particles into patches that reflect the body’s energy more intensely.

The patches are located on the body’s trigger points, improving muscle tone, recovery and balance during your run and leading to quicker recovery afterwards. The S/LAB NSO tee is made with a light and breathable fabric that makes it incredibly comfortable, even when you are giving maximum effort.

The 37.5 fabric dries quickly and minimizes odor.

S/LAB NSO MID TIGHT

The S/LAB NSO Mid Tight boasts the same unique NSO Active technology as the NSO Tee to improve muscle tone and recovery. Part of the S/Lab Modular system, these tights integrate perfectly with the S/Lab Short 6M, allowing you to pick the combination that fits your performance.

S/LAB SENSE SHORT 6M

The quick-drying S/LAB Short 6M is a lightweight over-short for running. As part of the S/LAB modular apparel system, choose your own combination of base layer, over-short and optional belt for optimum performance and comfort.

The S/LAB Short is designed to be worn over an inner short and sits low on the hips. The super light fabric is tailored to fit your body and move with you.
