It’s no secret that Salomon has made excellent off-road models for many years. The Salomon Sonic Pro shoes for men are proof that the French brand is also able to brilliantly design models intended for the road. This pair is one of the most technical and one of the lightest on the market. It is intended for demanding or even experienced riders, looking for a versatile model for exits on various terrains.
The material covering the sole in contact with the ground (outsole) is Contagrip. It is a multi-density rubber compound, which uses different rubbers at different locations of the shoe depending on the need for durability. This approach makes it possible to gain in lightness (the denser rubbers are also heavier) without compromising durability.
3D Grip + 3D Ride Hook
The 3D Ride concept ensures smooth running and greater responsiveness. This three-layer construction is made of high quality material that absorbs and minimizes impact. Thanks to it, the forefoot remains remarkably supple and allows you to keep an easy stride from heel to toe. The 3D Grip offers better grip on wet surfaces.
3D Technology ProFeel Film
X-shaped, the PROFEEL FILM 3D system offers additional protection to your feet without limiting the feel with the floor or the suppleness of the shoe.
EnergyCell + EVA midsole
The midsole material is composed of a multi-density EVA foam that is firm enough for cushioning. It preserves good sensations on the ground and maintains great agility both on the road and on trails. These EnergyCell and EnergyCell + technologies transfer energy from the hindfoot to the forefoot area. The feeling offered by this sole is excellent.
Mesh 3D Stretch open and breathable
The 3D Fit Stretch mesh from the top reinforces the structure of the Sonic Pro. It improves resistance without the tissue appearing stiff. The mesh allows a large air flow and a quick drying if you decide to pass in puddles. Thanks to its anti-perspiration technology, Sonic Pro keeps feet dry even in extremely humid and warm conditions.
Chausson EndoFit + stem sensifit
The SensiFit rod wraps the foot securely. The internal EndoFit sleeve holds the foot and improves the feeling of the ground. The interior is incredibly stretchy and soft. It hugs your foot to the point that the barefoot runners will appreciate even more than the others the comfort felt by this liner. To cope with the fineness of the coating, 3D Flex reinforced reinforcements ensure greater integrity of the stem.
Quicklace lacing + Lace pocket
Well-known by Salomon brand enthusiasts, the always-fast Quicklace lacing system allows precise adjustment of the foot hold in a fast gesture. The sleeve located under the tongue accommodates what is protruding and the rest of the laces that could cling to the obstacles.
Unlike traditional insoles, the OrthoLite insole provides maximum cushioning and comfort whenever you put your feet in your Solomon. Their open cell foam PU is 100% breathable, allowing air to circulate in and around the insole. This moisture management system cools your feet to provide a cooler, drier and healthier environment. A salt-based antimicrobial compound is added to the OrthoLite sole to control the formation of fungi, bacteria and therefore odors.
