The Salming Race has been one of the most impressive models since the start of Salming Running. A smart competition shoe, reduced to the essentials. Light as a feather (only an incredible 176 g for size US 9), breathable, yet comfortable and safe thanks to a carbon torsion insert. The new generation Race7 offers not only a thinner upper, but also an optimized cut for an even better fit.
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.
TGS 62/75° 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.
Heelcup Salmings heel cup is specifically designed to add minimal weight to your shoes, creating a transformable, adaptive fit.
RunLite Midsole The RunLite midsole features a special High Abrasion Injection EVA, designed to create a nice feel for the ground. The midsole is light and responds to the surface in a flexible way from the very first step.
Height: 16 mm heel centre, 11 mm ball of foot
Straight cut for normal freedom of movement
The 'neutral shoe' or 'cushioning shoe' is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). These shoes are therefore suitable for runners who have regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not roll their feet inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used for competition, for fast training and for long endurance sessions. The damping may vary depending on the application: in order to achieve more direct ground contact during competition, it is advisable to use only a slightly cushioned shoe. When training on hard surfaces or for long distances, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
