Extra grips with the Salomon Wings Pro 2 outsoles

Same as in the popular Salomon Sense Ride 2, the outsole features Contagrip trapezoidal lugs for an excellent multi-directional bite.

Two rubber compounds are differentiated by the color. One is for the very sticky rubber compound while the other one strategically placed in high-impact areas is for durability. A Pro Feel Film or a rock protection plate that is very flexible and resilient is located in the forefoot.

Superb balanced cushioning in the midsole

The midsole uses a dual-layer of compressed and injected EVA. As mentioned, the softer layer sits on top of the firmer foam for superb balance between shock-absorbing features and soft cushioning.

The “wings” is a heel chassis that supports the heel really well and helps with the transition from landing to take off.

Extra support and structure with the Salomon Wings Pro 2 upper

An anti-gravel mesh that is also breathable makes up a large portion of the upper. There is also the presence of Sensifit overlays that deliver great support and structure. Inside the shoe is the Endofit or the soft inner sleeve for added comfort and an enhanced lockdown feel.

The collar and tongue are well-padded and help with the prevention of debris from entering the shoe. Finally, an Asymmetrical Quicklace System makes foot entry and exit a breeze.
