Salomon's door-to-trail solution, XR Crossmax Neutral, earns coveted "

The top industry magazine chooses Salomon's latest release as one of three best-in-class

Salomon Sports is proud to announce that its door-to-trail running solution, the Salomon XR Crossmax Neutral, has earned a Best Debut award from Runner’s World magazine. Runner’s World, the worldwide authority on running information, highlights and reviews nine of the best new trail shoes on the market in the 2011 Trail Shoe Guide special as part of the April issue of Runner’s World, on newsstands March 8th.

The Salomon XR Crossmax Neutral received top scores from the Runner’s World Shoe Lab, “wear testers” and from Runner’s World editors. The recognition is significant, since Runner’s World sets an elevated bar for shoe testing. Every shoe reviewed by Runner’s World is first bench-tested at the Runner’s World Shoe Lab in Portland, Oregon, before being matched with 200 wear-testers.

“We created this option for all runners who make trails part of their program," says Trail Running Product Line Manager Jeff Dill, "So we're very pleased with this award since it recognizes exactly what we set out to do--introduce something truly versatile to smoothly take runners from their front door to the trail.”

Salomon XR Crossmax Neutral is presently shipping to retail stores, and is a high-mileage shoe providing the best of both running and trail running needs. The shoe harnesses Perfect Grip with new outsole compounds and lug geometry for better traction and ground control. The Perfect Fit comes with Salomon’s expertise of the foot. The new Sensiflex technology delivers the ideal combination of foothold and freedom of movement. The Sensiflex is a soft, stretchy liner inside the shoe, reinforced by a flexible outside PU honeycomb to control and adapt to the foot collapse during the stride. The Perfect Ride is effective thanks to the innovative Oversized Tendon—a progressive flex and energized return which greatly improves your speed workouts.
