For it’s price, it is worth investing if your goal is to get the best protection and durable running shoes in wet or muddy trails, the Salomon S-Lab Sense Ultra SG can counquer any terrain.
Updates to Salomon S-Lab Sense Ultra 5 SG
- One of Salomon’s most popular trail shoes undergoes noteworthy changes in the Sense Ultra 5 SG. Salomon is now offering a new compound in their Contagrip outsole that will enhance the stickiness of the shoe. It will make running on wet rocks, grass, and shingles so much better with this new compound.
- The aggressive lugs are a bit wider apart and just slightly larger than before. These beasts will have exceptional bite on the most difficult terrain and shakes off mud to boot.
- A new ripstop upper is introduced to add durability to an already breathable coverage. It also helps with the reduction in weight.
- Speaking of reduction, the new model is a massive 20 grams lighter than the past model. This is mainly because of the use of very light materials all throughout the shoe.
Salomon S-Lab Sense Ultra 5 SG size and fit
The latest version like the model before has a unisex fit in men’s sizes. It has average width all throughout. The fit would be just right and very comfortable for those with medium widths. Available sizes are from 4 to 14.
A new Wet-Traction Contagrip outsole enhances the traction of the shoe even on slick conditions. This is a technology that is already found in some of the shoes in Salomon’s fold that is now incorporated in the 7th version of the S-Lab Sense Ultra SG. The deep lugs also deliver a serious bite on trails and mountain surfaces. A Pro Feel Film allows sufficient ground feedback while it protects the foot from the harsh terrain.
A combination of molded EVA and dual-density foam deliver cushioning, responsive features, and a bit of stability in this shoe. These midsole technologies are particularly light, which greatly helped with the weight reduction.
A new ripstop upper provides exceptional breathability while adding durability on the rugged trail. Also same as in the popular Salomon Sense Ride 2, the SensiFit technology or the network of overlays working in tandem with the eyelets produces a fantastic and secure fit. A soft and plush inner sleeve called Endofit enhances comfort and make fit even better. Lastly, a really tough string made of polyester act as lace to produce personalized and comfortable fit.
