Based on a previous SLab design, the Sense Ride from Salomon is a new, versatile trail racing and training shoe. While pro athletes are already winning races in this shoe, it’s also a good fit for the new trail runner. Think about the running trails on any military base as a great application for the Sense Ride.
It incorporates their Vibe technology which attenuates vibration in order to reduce fatigue. The secret is their Opal technology which is a soft, high rebound material in a mid-sole compartment, combined with the Energy Cell+ midsole compound with high energy return.
Additionally, the Sense Ride offers geometric decoupling which patterns the sole in order to work with how the foot moves through its stride, with more efficient heel-to-toe transition. For those interested, it has an 8mm drop and weighs 230 grams.
