At the Outdoor Retailer trade show last month, these standout hiking and trail running products caught our eye
Outdoor Retailer, the industry’s semi-annual tradeshow, showcases brands’ latest and greatest gear. Most products on the floor in Denver last month will hit shelves in fall 2018, but some summer-centric brands were still highlighting items that were announced last August and are arriving at retailers now. We walked the entire show and found these seven standout new hiking and trail running products.
Salomon S/Lab Ultra and Ultra Pro Shoes
The first-generation S/Lab Sense Ultra—which Salomon designed with the world’s most dominant ultra runner, Francois D’haene (that’s right—he beat Kilian)—was the brand’s best-selling S/Lab trail shoe ever. To capitalize further on this success, Salomon updated the S/Lab Sense Ultra, renamed the S/Lab Ultra ($180, 10.6 ounces), and developed a more commercialized version, the Ultra Pro ($150, 10.3 ounces). Both models have Premium Wet Traction Contragrip outsoles, hydrophobic uppers, a PU-based forefoot insert, and 8 millimeters of drop.
