Experience reliable tractions on challenging trails with the Salomon Trailster outsole 

Designed for different types of terrains, the Salomon Trailster uses the Contagrip rubber lug outsole.  From concrete roads to uneven and rocky terrains, wet to dry surface, these Trailster offers great traction and allow any runner to tackle new challenges with confidence. Providing reliable grip on a wide range of surfaces and in different weather conditions.

Salomon Trailster outsole

These Contagrip® outsoles are a mixture of different compounds with various densities or thickness. This basically means that different areas of the outsole are softer or harder, depending on where they are located. The areas that are prone to wearing out faster have harder-wearing high-density compounds like the edge of the shoe's outsole.

Other areas use the lower density compounds, which offer more flexibility and grip like the central column area of the outsole. It also guarantees that the Contagrip MD outsoles with lug patterns provide the premium traction needed on either hard or soft surfaces, creating an incredibly versatile fitness experience.

The Ortholite® also provides out-of-box comfort longer than any footbed because of a particular open-cell polyurethane that retains 95% of its cushioning after the first year. It has also been designed to have an open cell structure that lets air pass through, allowing the odor and blister-causing moisture to dissipate. And as a finishing touch, the environmentally friendly biocide is added to combat microbes that might be found in a running shoe.
