With the growing popularity of fell and mountain running, Salomon is looking to take on Inov-8's fell racer dominance with their new Fellcross S-Lab. Featuring a high-grip, studded rubber outsole, the Fellcross will propel you up any rock, grass, snow or mud covered hill.
Salomon's Fellcross is an ultra light (263 grams), low profile racing shoe designed for the toughest conditions. The winter specific Mud & Snow Contragrip outsoles provide the perfect blend of grip and durability for running at high speeds overr varied terrain.
The fell racer's closed mesh, water resistant upper will keep mud, rain, snow or debris from weighing you down. The Fellcross uses Salomon's Quicklace system for simple one pull tightening and easy on and off.
The Climashield membrane design on the Fellcross offers an ideal balance of weather protection and breathability. The membrane is used only around the forefoot and tongue where you need the most weather protection. The rear section is kept membrane free to help you stay cooler as well as dry out faster if your foot should become wet.
The Salomon Fellcross S-Lab will retail for $160 and be released in time for the next Fall/Winter fell racing season.
