The Trail 5 incorporates Salming Natural Support System that consists of three main areas - the Torsion Guidance System (TGS62/75°), the Wrap-Around-Design construction, the Recoil and Recoil R cushioning properties and last but not least - the Trail 5 features a co-lab with Vibram using Vibram Megagrip compound with an exclusively designed outsole for unparalleled grip on dry and wet slippery surfaces.
Why Vibram MegaGrip™?
- Unparalleled grip on wet, muddy and slippery surfaces.
- A sticky but very long wearing compound.
- Self cleaning open design.
Our heel cup is specifically designed to add minimal weight to your shoes, creating a transformable, adaptive fit.
2 LAYER CONSTRUCTION
The upper is designed with a 2 layer sandwich construction and an ExoSkeleton construction on top of that. The first inner layer next to the foot has a big air mesh featured in order to create a comfortable plush feel. On top of that is a thin net mesh that enables an excellent water drainage but at the same time keeping out sand and gravel. The outer layer is an ExoSkeleton unit which has the lacing area integrated into it, holding the foot in place and creating an unsurpassed fit.
TORSION GUIDE SYSTEM TGS 62/75°
The distance from heel to the ball of foot (62% of the shoe) has been designed with extra stability, which ends in the so-called “ballet” line, a 75° angle. In front of the 75° line, we have equipped the shoe with greater flexibility to stimulate the foot’s natural movements. The TGS 62/75° feature assures that the shoe bends in exactly the right places, stimulating the foot’s natural lateral and forward movements.
FULLY INTEGRATED EXO SKELETON
The Exo Skeleton design stabilizes the foot in lateral movements and relieves pressure at the MTP joints (Metatarsophalangeal joints). This part of the design construction eliminates friction and reduces the impact of the side forces in the soft parts of the foot, especially underneath the forefoot.
The material in the midsole is Salming RunLite™ which absorbs negative impact forces and releases energy in the toe off phase. The low profile of the midsole enhances the proprioception properties when running off trail. Way from the very first step.
A new light weight outsole made in TOC66 (Traction Outsole Control 66) compound featuring 8mm high lugs - has been developed to provide the best possible grip on both dry and wet surfaces, as well as on gravel, rocks and roots.
OUTER SOLE - TEAR & WEAR
The outsole has been built up by a special compound in order to get an optimal traction and durability, yet maintaining a high level of feel for the ground while running.
Elements has a more roomy toe box compared to its trail sibling, the Salming Trail, in order to provide a possibility for the fore foot to expand properly in the landing phase, making it more effective in a biomechanic perspective.
Our standard heel to toe drop of 5 mm sets up a natural running posture, allowing a correct lean throughout the stride. This drop is used in Trail, Distance, Speed and Race models.
A special PU area covering the lower part of the shoe upper protecting it from sharp rocks and branches thus both increasing the durability of the shoe and adds confidence to the runner.
