Elements – run anywhere! Salmings original off-trail and OCR model features a light and simplistic upper construction, decreasing the weight by 30g compared to its predecessor. The body of the shoe features the same mesh quality as the OT Comp model, providing an enhanced water evacuation property and excellent breathability. When Elements was added to the Salming range we aimed at creating a performance off-trail shoe which incorporates Salming’s running concept and principles, enabling you to run anywhere. Spring 2020 we continue on that path and if you are looking for an intimate trail experience where your whole body is in tune with the ground and its surroundings – Elements is your top pick! The responsive and flexible RunLite2 midsole with a bomber traction outsole allows for an ultimate off-trail experience.
Toe Box The toe box is more roomy in order to provide a possibility for the fore foot to expand properly in the landing phase, making it more effective in a biomechanic perspective.
TGS 62/75° The distance from heel to the ball of foot (62% of the shoe) has been designed with extra stability, which ends in the so-called “ballet” line, a 75° angle. In front of the 75° line, we have equipped the shoe with greater flexibility to stimulate the foot’s natural movements. The TGS 62/75° feature assures that the shoe bends in exactly the right places, stimulating the foot’s natural lateral and forward movements.
Heelcup Salmings heel cup is specifically designed to add minimal weight to your shoes, creating a transformable, adaptive fit.
2 Layer Construction Salmings lightest shoes feature a 2 layer upper construction which adds durable abilities while keeping the weight at a minimum. This results in extremely breathable characteristics and a quick, responsive feel to running experience.
RunLite Midsole The RunLite midsole features a special High Abrasion Injection EVA, designed to create a nice feel for the ground. The midsole is light and responds to the surface in a flexible way from the very first step.
RocShield An area covering the lower part of the shoe upper protecting it from sharp rocks and branches thus both increasing the durability of the shoe and adds confidence to the runner.
Straight cut for normal freedom of movement
The neutral shoe or cushioning shoe is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). It is therefore particularly suitable for runners who have a regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not bend inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used in competitions, fast training or long endurance sessions. The cushioning can vary depending on the intended use. In order to achieve a more direct ground contact in competition, it is advisable to use a slightly damped shoe. In training on hard surfaces or with long units, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
