Salomon Latest offering: S-lab Sense 3 Ultra Softground

S-LAB is a unique development process at Salomon; Engineers, designers, and developers working in close collaboration with top athletes to help them perform their best. Specific fit, specific features, specific materials. Prototypes tested, tweaked and re-tested until each athlete has exactly the products they want.

Since the original prototype, Sense has gone through minor tweaks to make it more durable and stable, with slightly longer sole lugs and an extended Profeel film for better protection. It remains the choice of elite athletes for endurance events around the world. The new Soft Ground version, with longer lugs similar to the mud-proven Speedcross sole, S-LAB Sense Ultra SG cover the needs of the most top athletes for all surfaces.
