The shoe’s upper is made from a durable lightweight polyester fabric, which is then covered in a special black exo skeleton that effectively helps keep the foot in the right position during lateral movements and high performance activities. This uniquely comfortable upper construction helps the shoe to feel perfect on your foot from the first instant with virtually zero “break-in” time.
Compared to many of the competitors, Race is designed with less heel to toe drop, and a thicker forefoot with greater rebound characteristics, making it extremely comfortable and fun to run in.
At the core of the shoe’s design, you will find our unique T.G.S. 62/75° system which specifically designates the distance from heel to the ball of the foot (62% of the shoe) in order to optimize stability, comfort, and performance.
Key to this design is the firmer, stabilizing section which ends at the ball of the foot at the so-called “ballet” line, a 75° angle. In front of the 75° line, we have equipped Salming Race with a specially composed section which gives greater flexibility in order to further stimulate the foot’s natural movements.
In addition, this great shoe features both our 5°™ angle concept on the outer edge of the shoe which helps avoid the risk of ankle injury, and our innovative RollBar™technology on the inner edge, for quicker and better lateral push-off.
In order to help you control all of this cornering performance, our XR110 outer sole has a sticky compound that provides excellent traction properties!
An increased radius on the inner side of the outer sole, facilitates rolling the foot inwards and toe push off. Reaching for that stop ball in squash or covering a shot in floorball is made easier with the RollBar™ technology.
Lateral Movement Stabilizer - an especially designed light weight integrated dual torsion unit that supports the foot during fast and irregular lateral movements.
The upgraded insole has a high level of comfort and integrated anti-bacterial technology in order to help your feet stay fresh during the game.
The exo skeleton design stabilizes the foot for lateral movements and reduces pressure at the MTP joints (Metatarsophalangeal joints). It is important to keep the foot stable mediolateral, avoiding friction and side forces in the soft parts of the foot sole, especially underneath the forefoot.
To stabilize and fixate the heel, which is key to providing a great fit and comfort, we have developed a new anatomical Ergo Heel Cup that is slightly longer than the average heel cup
A newly developed durable rubber compound with excellent 25% traction improvement!
The SpeedLite™ midsole is a lightweight performance EVA compound with long lasting cushioning qualities.
