Salomon speedcross is intended for mountain

As one of their most popular and recognizable designs, the salomon speedcross 4 baratas has been a huge hit for Salomon. The toothy, exposed traction and bright colorways are a common sight at trail runs and adventure races, and for good reason—they’re one of the toughest built trail shoes on the market. For fall 2016, Salomon has released a new version: the Speedcross 4. It’s best to classify the “4” as a modest update, which should come as a relief to many—myself included. Following extensive testing, we’ve concluded that they remain a streamlined mountain machine best for steep, muddy trails and long distances.

One of the hallmarks of the Speedcross line is traction, and Salomon has tinkered with the lug design of the zapatillas salomon mujer outlet. The results are tremendous. Uphill, downhill, and side-hilling—you just plant and go. And I found it worked well across the board, from muddy and snowy spring trails in the mountains outside of Seattle to dusty, dry, and rocky dirt on the east side of the Central Cascades. As a pure traction machine, the Speedcross is one of the best.

Much of the credit goes to an extremely aggressive outsole with widespread arrow-shaped 6mm lugs that shed mud and muck really well. On steep, switchbacking climbs, the outsole grips that run up the front of the toe dig in nicely and also give the shoe its distinctive (and aggressive) look. In a break from the prior model, the zapatillas salomon comprar now has complete arrow-shaped lugs throughout (the Speedcross 3 had half arrows along the edges of the shoe).

The zapatillas salomon hombre baratas is intended for serious mountain environments and the construction reflects that purpose. Tightly woven mesh resists light rain, snow (there is also a water-resistant Climashield model as well as a waterproof Gore-Tex version available) and debris, and there’s solid toe and heel armor for glancing off of rocks. And while the shoe doesn’t have a rock guard underfoot, the thick midsole was more than enough for me while climbing a trail littered with sharp volcanic rock.

Durability and ventilation do not always go hand-in-hand with trail runners, and the zapatillas salomon outlet españa does suffer here. In the heat, the strong side panels don’t ventilate heat nearly as well as a shoe like the Saucony Peregrine 6, which has an open mesh upper. Drainage is also middle of the pack. After dunking the shoes in a creek halfway through an hour long run, they were still pretty soggy by the time I returned to the car despite some serious heat. On the plus side, there was no ill effect on comfort and I wasn’t sloshing around.
