  • The Salomon Sense Ride GTX Invisible Fit is a running shoe that’s designed to perform on the trails. It makes use of a non-bulky design to cater to those who want versatile-looking athletic wear for their off-road adventures. A new waterproof technology from GORE-TEX® offers protection without adding substantial bulk to the upper unit.
  • Underfoot cushioning is the responsibility of the Vibe construction, which is made up of a full-length platform and a rounded add-on in the heel. Both these features work together to ensure a smooth transition through the gait cycle. Traction is given by the Premium Wet Traction Contagrip™.

The Salomon Sense Ride GTX Invisible Fit has a standard running shoe length. It follows the usual choices of consumers when it comes to size. Regarding width, the available options are D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women.

Just like in the popular Salomon Speedcross 5, the Premium Wet Traction Contagrip™ is the material that’s used for the outsole unit of the Salomon Sense Ride GTX Invisible Fit. This material provides grip on both dry and wet surfaces, allowing runners to be in control of their environment.

Flex grooves in the forefoot and heel allow the foot to move freely as it goes through the gait cycle. These shallow trenches also make sure to optimize the traction capacity of the rubber layer as they fully direct the contact points.

The Vibe midsole construction is made up of cushioning elements (EnergyCell+ and Opal) which work together to ensure comfort and smooth steps.

EnergyCell+ offers underfoot support that is ready to attenuate shock during the foot-strike. This foam also converts the force generated by the landings to energy for the toe-off.

Opal is an oblong-shaped add-on placed in the heel section, and it is meant to provide soft cushioning. It is lightweight, and it blends seamlessly into the underfoot experience.

An Ortholite™ footbed is placed on top of the main cushioning system. This layer offers additional support, and it has antimicrobial and anti-moisture properties to prevent odor and foot-conditions.

The Salomon Sense Ride GTX Invisible Fit features a 3D-mapped air mesh. This fabric offers ventilation and a form-fitting coverage that accommodates the natural shape and movement of the foot.

The GORE-TEX® Invisible Fit™ is a layer that is blended with the rest of the upper unit. Its goal is to protect the interior chamber from water infiltration without causing any deterrence to the stretchiness and breathable capacity of the fabrics.

The Sensifit™ and the Profeel Film are elements on the upper that work together to hug the foot securely. They’re strategically placed to allow them to encompass the parts of the foot that are susceptible to wobbling.

Quicklace™ is a lacing system that involves super-thin yet sturdy strands that loop through discrete eyelets. The fit is adjusted by pulling on the laces and locking them using a securing tab. Such a configuration removes the need for traditional looping-and-tying.
