Salomon XA Lite Trail Running Shoes
Get out onto any terrain with a light foot and a clear head. No need for compromises. The XA Lite shoe is your ideal game partner, swift, steady and long-lasting.
The upper of the Salmon XA Lite is constructed with an open mesh which offers enhanced ventilation, keeping the feet feeling cool and comfortable. Fitted with Sensifit which works to cradle that foot, while providing a precise and secure fit. The Salomon XA Lite is equipped with the Quicklace System which is a minimalistic and strong lace for one-pull tightening for easy on and off of the shoe, while the Lace Pocket provides easy storage for the lacing system. Additionally, the Friction Free Lace Eyelet also helps for quick and easy one pull lacing. Lastly, for protection on loose rocky trails, the shoe has a Mud Guard which offers protective material all around the base of the shoe.
Molded EVA Midsole
Developed with a molded EVA midsole, it provides lightweight cushioning and enhances stability, while found in the forefoot is the injected EVA which also gives underfoot cushioning while running.
A shoe for every terrain doesn't have to be heavy. Salomon has lightened the chassis for extra comfort and freedom of movement. Less weight means longer playtime.
High Abarasion and High Traction Contagrip Outsole
Salomon developed Contagrip because they wanted to be 100% certain that their footwear would offer flawless performance, come rain, shine, asphalt or rock. It is a carefully balanced blend of density, compound and geometry. Contagrip soles are a mix of different compounds with different densities. This means that different zones of the outsole are softer or harder, depending on where they're placed. Areas that are prone to wearing out faster have harder wearing high-density compounds e.g. the edge of the outsole. Other areas use lower density compounds which offer a bit more flexibility and grip e.g. the central column of the outsole. The Salomon XA Lite uses a combination of both Contagrip High Traction and Contagrip High Abrasion as this gives the perfect balance between durability and traction in all trail conditions.
