Outdoor Venture Presents Salomon Sport
Singapore – Adventure sports retailer Outdoor Venture today announced their new role as the official distributors for Salomon Sport range in Singapore, starting with their Trail Running line. Salomon’s performance-driven design has made it a market leader in the growing sport of trail running, and the company’s footwear and apparel are worn by some of the world’s leading endurance athletes.
“The Salomon trail running line fits perfectly with Outdoor Venture’s portfolio,” said Walter Tan, Managing Director of Outdoor Venture. “In our increasingly urbanised society, more and more people are heading back to nature in their leisure time. Salomon is a world leader in trail running, and we are excited to be bringing this brand to Singaporeans. We want to give Singaporeans every incentive to reconnect with the great outdoors, and trail running is a great way to do that in a time-efficient manner.”
On the Trail Running front, the stellar product lineup begins with the Speedcross 5. Salomon’s new Speedcross 5 is a state-of-the-art update of a classic shoe beloved by trail runners who have a preference for going fast on and off trails, in tough conditions. The Speedcross 5 provides the performance of a racing shoe with low-to-the-ground manoeuvrability and unparalleled traction.
To create the new-generation Speedcross 5, Salomon’s footwear design team went back to the source code, capitalizing on the values that made the model a legend in the first place and have helped it maintained that status for years. Performance-wise, the Speedcross 5 offers enhanced grip, a more dynamic upper for an improved foothold and more stability. The Contagrip® outsole of the Speedcross 5 has larger, more aggressive lugs and an updated geometry, delivering better push-off grip and braking grip in all surface conditions. The heel unit of the shoe creates a cradle for your heel, ensuring clean foot strike and stability through the stride. It also has a completely welded upper, with dissociated Sensifit arms and more toe volume, so it moves more naturally with your foot and dials in the comfort.
The shoe’s appearance returns to its original silhouette with a higher shape and big heel counter, while also highlighting the aggressive grip. The new tone-on-tone colour palette means these trail shoes sport an urban attitude that doesn’t look out of place anywhere.
