Salming and Vibram combine to deliver the Trail5

SWEDISH and Italian design and technology meet in the latest addition to the Salming Running range – the Trail5 – due to be launched July 2017.

The Salming Trail5 is made to master extremely technical trail running.

It is a lightweight trail shoe, powered with Vibram MegaGrip – a sticky and very long wearing compound, made for any kind of weather conditions and any kind of surface – wet, dry, slippery, soft, muddy and rocky.

Tomas Solin, CEO of Salming Sports AB, said: “At Salming we have a passion to create innovative, highly functional products that truly makes a difference to the user. Combining Vibram’s unquestionable knowledge in performance outsoles with our design and product development team has enabled us to create this state of the art trail-running shoe – Trail5. This is the first project in this co-operation, but certainly not the last.”

Nicoletta Di Vita, Vibram Global Sales Director, said: “We are really happy to partner up with such a creative and innovative brand like Salming. Vibram has gained huge experience in developing very performing soles designs for trail-running and very advanced compounds, such as Megagrip. We’ve been really impressed by Salming’s “holistic approach” to running and we can say that this first co-operation has been very productive.

“The Salming Trail5 project was a challenging one. Our designers worked very closely with Salming’s product and development team in order to create the most functional outsole for this new trail running shoe style, and we are sure that the market will appreciate the final result.”
