Our Review of the Salomon S-LAB Sense Ultra:

The Salomon S-Lab Sense Ultra shoe is due for spring/summer 2013 and we've been lucky enough to get one from Salomon UK to look at (it is literally only one shoe!). As you may know, we're one of only a handful of Salomon S-LAB shop in Shops in the UK and work really closely with Salomon. The reward is the left shoe from pretty much the only pair of Salomon Sense Ultra's in the UK!

What is the Salomon S-LAB Sense Ultra? Well, it's a derivative of the Salomon S-LAB Sense shoe - Killian's shoe. Developed for/by Killian to tackle (and win) some of the toughest Ultra Mountain Marathons during the 2011 season (such as the UTMB and Western States 100). The Salomon Sense was a bit of a departure for Salomon trail running shoes. Lighter, lower and with new technologies to provide comfort and support. All in all a great shoe - no real flaws as such - just a great shoe to be worn for racing and more suited to lighter, forefoot runners.

With respect to above, the Sense Ultra will arrive to tackle a few of the issues above. It's designed with a longer lasting sole unit (the contra-grip sole will last a few more miles) and to appeal to a wider range of runners - who are not necessarily just 'forefoot' runners. It also comes in at a slightly cheaper price - the RRP of the Salomon S-LAB Sense Ultra will be a little lower - 140.00.

In terms of the shoe - the fit and dynamics are pretty much the same as the S-LAB Sense (the Ultra's upper looks almost exactly the same). The Sense Ultra weighs in at 210g for a UK 8.5 compared with 195g for the Sense shoe. The weight gain is due mostly to the increased durability of the shoe, tweaks with materials in the sole unit (both the midsole and the outsole compounds have changed) and a slight extension to the rock plate as per below to ensure a longer life for the shoe and enhanced comfort for more sustained use.

The Salomon S-LAB Sense Ultra has the same design to the sole unit as the Sense shoe - it continues the focus on 'natural running' - with the low heel to toe drop (the same 4mm as the Sense shoe). It still promotes forefoot 'natural' running but Salomon have added a more durable midsole compound and additional grip on the heel and in the midfoot area to cope with midfoot runners and to aid comfort over longer distances. The S-Lab Sense Ultra also features the same profeel chassis or rock plate - a thin, light plate placed to give support and protection on trail runs whilst maintaining a low profile sole unit (this unit has been extended further on the Sense Ultra to provide support in the mid foot area).

Now that we have our hands on the shoe and with more testing imminent we are sure this will prove great hit with Salomon fans - it will be even more comfortable, more durable and appeal to a wider range of runners. It ticks a couple more boxes in terms of durability and price and we are eager to get the other shoe so we can give it a test!!

This shoe is available in limited quantities and more is due soon - if you are interested in reserving a pair or want to know more - simply email us here at enquiries@castlebergoutdoors.co.uk
