A firm favorite in the #supbikerun office and an iconic trail shoe, the Salomon Speedcross 3 thanks to its Contagrip sole provides grip and traction unlike any shoe we have tested to date. This combined with durable upper construction and excellent cushioning creates a trail shoe that performs incredibly well across mixed trail terrain, mountain and snow.
The Speedcross 3 provides excellent protection with stable heel cushioning most noticeable on high impact hill descents. The Speedcross 3 provides adequate toe protection against rocks and tree roots yet still remains a relatively light shoe at 12.15 ounces per shoe (based on size 11).
This is where the Speedcross 3 wins hands down in our opinion as it provides insane grip thanks to its Contagrip sole. The sole design is made up of a series of profiled arrowheads that provide excellent grip across varied terrain including snow and mud.
Light, fast and insane traction stand this trail shoe head and shoulders above the competition and for this reason we have selected to Speedcross 3 for our Experience Days.
