Traction, grip or both?
Traction is what prevents your soles from slipping on loose surfaces. And grip is what prevents them from slipping on smooth surfaces.
With their widely-spaced 5 mm lugs to fluff out mud more effectively, your trail running shoes literally bite into the ground: it's on muddy terrain that you'll see what they're truly capable of.
And with new rubber that provides 42% grip, you can be sure your outsoles won't slip, even on wet rocks!
K-Ring et Kalensole : We offer you ultra-soft cushioning
The K-RING is exclusive heel cushioning technology in the form of a ring located in the heel: The hole in the middle disperses the shockwave.
Kalensole is the EVA foam used in the midsole. It took three years of research to create this exclusive composition that improves cushioning by 34%, propulsion by 25% and provides better temperature stability and durability!
Running shoes suited to all terrains... and all types of stride!
Exclusive Kalenji technology that makes our shoes suitable for every stride type thanks to the denser foam located under the first metatarsus.
A shoe that gives you support when trail running.
When you're out running in wild nature for hours, you need shoes that give you maximum support!
That's why we added a PU band sealed to the mesh around the back and sides of the shoe, to wrap your foot up snugly. Result: When you pull your laces, your shoe tightens around your whole foot to provide extra support.
What are the secrets behind the XT7 design?
The XT7 features a whole array of details designed to provide support, versatility and traction:
- There's a pocket on the tongue you can store your laces in!
- Weighing 300 g in size 5.5, your shoe is even lighter than before and suitable for body weights of up to 11.8 st. What's more, its shape is specifically designed for female feet
- The sole has a heel-to-toe drop of 10 mm
- For optimal comfort - even in trail - the lining covers the whole interior of the shoe, right to the toes!
Shoes tested for durability
In order to provide you with ever more versatile shoes, the first thing we did was listen to your feedback. That led us to develop a new kind of rubber for the heel, one that gives better grip.
Then we handed our shoes over to trail running enthusiasts for 6 months, men and women who tested them out under real-life conditions every day, on all terrain.
Result: On top of its exceptional level of grip and support, the XT7 will last you up to 800 km!
