Salomon XA Lite GTX Trail Running Shoes
Get out onto any terrain in any weather with a light foot and a clear head. No need for compromises. The XA Lite GTX shoe is your ideal game partner, swift, steady and long-lasting.
GORE TEX Upper
Engineered with a durable, waterproof GORE-TEX membrane providing greater flex, better cushion and less weight. The GORE-TEX membrane is an extremely thin layer of expanded polytetrafluorethylene (ePTFE). It has over 9 billion pores per square inch and the pores give the GORE-TEX fabric its characteristics. Wet fabrics rob your body of warmth. The GORE-TEX fabrics allow you to stay dry and enjoy your activity in comfort.
The upper of the Salomon XA Lite GTX is constructed with an open mesh which offers enhanced ventilation to keep the feet feeling cool, dry and comfortable. Fitted with Sensifit which works to cradle the foot, while providing a precise and secure fit. The Salomon XA Lite GTX is equipped with a QuickLace System which is a minimalistic and strong lace for one-pull tightening for easy on and off the shoe, while the lace pocket provides easy storage for the lacing system. Additionally, the friction free lace eyelet also helps for quick and easy one pull lacing. Lastly, for protection on the loose rocky trails, the shoe has a mud guard which offers protective material all around the base of the shoe.
Moulded EVA Midsole
Developed with a moulded EVA midsole, it provides lightweight cushioning and enhances stability. Found in the forefoot is the injected EVA which also offers underfoot cushioning while running. A shoe for every terrain does not have to be heavy. Salomon has lightened the chassis for extra comfort and freedom of movement in all directions. Less weight means longer playtime.
High Abrasion and High Traction Contagrip Outsole.
Salomon developed Contagrip because they wanted to be 100% certain their footwear offered flawless performance come rain, shine, asphalt or rock. It is a carefully balanced blend of density, compound and geometry. Contagrip soles are a mix of different compounds with differing densities. This means that different zones of the outsole are softer or harder, depending on where they are placed. Areas which are prone to wearing out faster have harder wearing, high-density compounds. For example, the edge of the outsole. Other areas use lower density compounds which offer more flexibility and grip in places such as the central column of the outsole.
The Salomon XA Lite GTX uses a combination of both Contagrip High Traction and Contagrip High Abrasion as this gives the perfect balance between durability and traction, in all trail conditions to give you the best traction and support so you are able to achieve the best possible results.
