EnRoute to a natural running stride. The feedback received and sales numbers achieved during the 2017 launch season has proven that what we aimed for in the development process - an icon - is becoming a reality. EnRoute has established itself at the top of the competition and its place as a proven classic road running shoe seems inevitable. The backbone of the EnRoute is our Natural Running Support System which facilitates for every runner to find and stay in their natural running stride. If there is a running shoe for everyone - EnRoute is it!
The material in the midsole is a newly developed compound named RECOIL which absorbs negative impact forces and releases a higher rebound energy effect in the toe off phase.
RECOIL R Midsole
Recoil R offset heel insert is a shock absorbing compound that combined with Recoil deliver the perfect mix of shock absorbing properties and a highly responsive light feel.
The ExoSkeleton design keeps the foot in place and stabilizes the foot in lateral movements relieveing pressure at the MTP joints (Metatarsophalangeal joints). When we refer to the Fully Integrated ExoSkeleton it is part of the lacing construction - a solid fully integrated construction that is part of a Wrap Around Design concept created to provide that snug comfortable first feel with a great fit and breathability.
Torsion Efficiency Unit
Responsive without being overly supportive – The Torsion Efficiency Unit brings sturdiness to the shoe. It is appropriately placed to generate maximal running efficiency. The Distance model features a semi-transparent TPU, while the Race model is powered by a lightweight carbon fiber torsion unit.
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.
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.
Salmings heel cup is specifically designed to add minimal weight to your shoes, creating a transformable, adaptive fit.
3 Layer Construction
Covering mile after mile calls for a combination of comfort and durability. Accordingly, our shoes designed to function in more rugged environments utilize a 3 layer upper construction. A first layer of mesh material adds comfort, while the middle stabilizes lateral movements and reduces ress-ure on the foot. The exterior thin net mesh encapsulates and wraps up the front in a neat fashion, adding durability to the shoe.
