Updates to Salomon Sense Link

  • The Salomon Sense Link features the OS Tendon technology that is strategically placed between the midsole and the outsole to guide the foot through the entire foot strike. It acts like a real tendon, offering enough amount of flexibility and balance during the transition.

Salomon Sense Link size and fit

The Sense Link is available in standard running shoe length. It has medium measurements in the midfoot and heel area, offering a snug fit. The forefoot is a bit wider, giving the toes more space for toe splay. This is available in standard D and B widths for men’s and women’s respectively.


Outsole

The outsole unit of the Sense Link uses the Salomon’s ContraGrip outsole technology that provides durable traction on different surfaces. The high abrasion ContraGrip element in the heel is placed strategically to add durability to high wear areas and at the same time, giving added traction on varied terrains.


Midsole

The midsole uses the injected EVA foam that is extended in the entire midsole. It delivers impressive underfoot protection for a soft, comfortable running experience.

The OS Tendon located in the middle of the midsole and the outsole gives added flexibility and balance. It is designed like the real tendons that help the foot flex naturally, for a more natural and balance heel-to-toe transition.


Upper

The upper of the Salomon Sense Link features and open mesh coverage that is breathable and quick-drying in nature. It keeps foot well-ventilated and dry all throughout the run.

The SensiFit technology wraps the foot securely, from the midfoot up to the lace area, to deliver a stable and snug fit. The EndoFit sleeve attached in the interior provides supreme comfort and fit.
