SALOMON TRAIL RUNNING 2022
To create footwear that will help runners improve and feel more confident regardless of their level, Salomon is bringing Learning from decades of footwear and trail running expertise, the footwear development team at Salomon created Energy Blade, a plate in the midsole of the shoe that was partly inspired by the hooves of chamois, the species of goat-antelope that lives in the mountains of Europe.
By combining Energy Blade options with a new bouncy foam technology and Reverse Camber construction, the Spring/Summer 2022 trail running footwear range is the perfect mix of responsiveness, comfort and stability, while also offering protection on the trails.
The Pulsar Trail Pro and the Pulsar Trail feature an Energy Blade made of high-end composite material.
Similar Energy Blade technology is also used in more accessible models for less experienced trail runners, including the bouncy Hypulse shoe with a TPU Energy blade and the multi-tasking Impulse trail-running shoe. That means you don’t have to be Kilian Jornet to run with a plate-assisted shoe and enjoy the comfort and cushioning benefits of this new Salomon range.
Moreover, looking forward to this 2022, Salomon bring the updated ADV Skin 5 and 12 on your longer runs to carry your poles, jacket, keys, food, or the brand new ADV Skin belt on shorter days.
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.
SALOMON PULSAR TRAIL PRO: TRAINING PLATE ASSISTED TRAIL SHOE
The Pulsar Trail Pro brings TPU composite plates to trail running in a shoe that is both responsive and stable. The TPU composite plate, called Energy Blade, is a stiff plate that gives more power to the runner by limiting the energy lost on every stride. Thanks to its decoupled construction, the Pulsar Trail Pro is flexible enough to still ensure great stability and comfort.
This is the training version of the most racing S/Lab Pulsar, in fact, it is built on a wider base and uses a thicker midsole to create more comfort during longer training runs.
It will also be available in limited edition colors for those looking to add style to their trail game.
