This is the new 4.0 version, the new masterpiece from the now famous SPEEDCROSS series from the Salomon TRAIL/RUNNING range. Its performance and aggressive look have been chosen by the greatest champions of mountain racing for years, including Killian Jornet. Awesome! So if you want to take things up a gear and break some records on difficult and wet terrain the SPEEDCROSS 4 GTX is for you.
This 4th generation is designed for runners who set out to attack the steepest trails whatever the conditions. Comfortable on climbs with its CONTAGRIP WET TRACTION® sole, it's great on the descent too. The Descent Control technologies have only one aim, to reduce fatigue and provide a safe and powerful support to shave off a few seconds on every trail. The construction of the Lightweight Muscle sole features a drop of 10mm which ensures perfect cushioning and great bounce. ENDOFIT connects this sole to the foot and holds it firmly to increase stability and the feel of the terrain. While SENSIFIT provides effective transmission of forces to best benefit from the performance of the sole the foot is wrapped onto. This work on the SPEEDCROSS 4 will allow you to retain some power on the descent so you have some juice left for the next climb.
Designed to use in difficult conditions, the SPEEDCROSS 4 GTX is made from water-resistant textile to keep you dry and its 3D mesh will prevent debris from impeding your progress.
This SPEEDCROSS 4 GTX version features the new Salomon Flex membrane in GORE TEX®. This model offers long-lasting protection from water while maintaining a soft and comfortable flex, ideal for year-round practice.
The SPEEDCROSS 4 GTX has no reason to envy the old generation so if you are looking for speed to boost your times when you head out after rain, this is just what you need.
