A good "vibe" during runs

Present in the midsole is the VIBE technology, which is designed to provide a comfortable underfoot cushioning and high-energy return. The technology is the combination of Opal and EnergyCell+ cushioning compounds.

The Opal cushioning compound is specifically inserted into the midsole for a soft and comfortable underfoot cushioning. It encourages a well-cushioned and bouncy running experience. This compound is lightweight and durable. It also performs well in extreme weather conditions.

The EnergyCell+ compound is designed for high-energy return. The 17mm of EnergyCell+ foam also provides reliable cushioning and added durability.

The shoe also utilizes the thin TPU Profeel Film. It provides underfoot protection while enhancing the ground feel. It also provides stability and consistency in the midfoot area of the shoe.

Breathable upper with convenient features

The upper of the Salomon Sense Pro Max uses a 3D Stretch Air Mesh material that gives the foot a breathable coverage for a well-ventilated running experience. The stretchy upper mesh hugs the foot comfortably for a more customized fit.

Similar to the well known Salomon Sense Ride 2, the mesh upper uses the Sensifit and Endofit technologies. They are designed to give enhanced comfort and a secure fit. The Sensifit overlays wrap the foot for a secure and snug fit while the Endofit provides a seamless environment for a comfortable and sock-like fit.

For an easy-on and easy-off of the foot, the shoe utilizes the minimalistic Quicklace System with friction-free lace eyelets. It facilitates the one-pull tightening and loosening of the lace for a more secure running experience. There is also a lace pocket, which provides a secure storage for the lace, keeping it out of the way while running.
