2015 Salming Race R1 2.0 Shoe
Compared to many of the competitors, Race is designed with less heel to toe drop, and a thicker forefoot with greater rebound characteristics, making it extremely comfortable and fun to run in.
At the core of the shoe's design, you will find our unique T.G.S. 62/75 system which specifically designates the distance from heel to the ball of the foot (62% of the shoe) in order to optimize stability, comfort, and performance. Key to this design is the firmer, stabilizing section which ends at the ball of the foot at the so-called "ballet" line, a 75 degree angle. In front of the 75 degree line, we have equipped Salming Race with a specially composed section which gives greater flexibility in order to further stimulate the foot's natural movements.
In addition, this great shoe features both our 5 degree angle concept on the outer edge of the shoe which helps avoid the risk of ankle injury, and our innovative RollBar technology on the inner edge, for quicker and better lateral push-off.
