The Salomon Sense Ride Trail running shoes have an incredible feel right out of the box, making them very versatile for beginners and ultrarunners. Salomon's new Vibe Tech balances between the feel of the ground and the durable cushion suitable for long-distance running. Vibe combines EnergyCell + foam, lighter than EVA with greater cushioning potential, with soft opal inserts that add responsive cushioning in high-impact areas to disperse shock comfortably. Vibe gives the shoe plenty of cush, but it also maintains a ground feel and keeps the weight low enough for sprinting training on rough terrain. Salomon outfitted the upper of the Sense Ride in 3D stretch mesh encapsulated by Sensifit overlays and Endofit sock-like technology. Sensifit and Endofit maintain a secure fit despite perfect upper comfort, and Quicklace lacing offers a quick way to secure toe-to-heel fit. Salomon's Contagrip rubber outsole uses low-profile lugs and a softer compound to better grip the wetter terrain.
