Good to know
- The Salomon S-Lab Sense 7 is a trail shoe that’s designed for those who desire to race on technical trails. It has a bouncy midsole unit that’s layered with a thin yet protective TPU sheet. Both these elements are responsible for staving off sharp objects and impact shock. A rubber outsole that’s configured to grip wet surfaces is placed liberally underneath the cushioning platform.
- This running shoe is touted by Salomon to be lighter than its immediate predecessor, the S-Lab Sense 6. A constituent of this lightness is the version 7’s upper, which uses a single layer mesh that is thinner than the one used on the Sense 6.
Standard measurements were used in the making of the Salomon S-Lab Sense 7. Runners are encouraged to get a pair using their usual sizing expectations. The available width option is D – Medium as it is a unisex shoe that is patterned using the foot-dimensions of men.
Just like in the popular Salomon Sense Ride 2, the outsole unit of the Salomon S-Lab Sense 7 features the Premium Wet Traction Contagrip, a highly durable compound that grips many types of surfaces, even wet ones. Its sturdy build prevents rocks and rugged surfaces from damaging the rest of the sole unit.
A bevy of gripping lugs pockmark the surface of the outsole, and they act as clamping modules that prevent slippage, particularly when traversing uneven terrains.
Cushioning is given by the full-length EnergyCell+, a foam that is highly bouncy. Its responsive build energizes the toe-off while also attenuating impact shock during the landing phase.
The ProFeel Film is a sheet of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) that is placed between the midsole and outsole. The purpose of this extra layer is to protect against sharp objects and rough surfaces.
A single-layer mesh is used for the external part of the Salomon S-Lab Sense 7’s upper unit. The purpose of this textile is to accommodate air into the interior chamber, thus maintaining a cool and dry environment for the foot.
The Endofit is an internal sleeve that it smooth and stretchy. Its job is to hug the foot and welcome its natural capacity to move. It also prevents hot spots via its seamless construction.
A thin rubber toe cap is placed on the forefoot section. This feature aims to protect against front-concentrated bangs during the run.
The Sensifit is a collection of super-thin overlays and discrete eyelets that work together to provide a snug and secure fit.
The asymmetrical Quicklace system involves single-pull cables, a locking tab, and a lace-progression line that follows the natural curve of the foot. Such a design provides anatomical security and snugness.
