Salomon XT Wings 3

Just last month Salomon released the latest update to their XT Wings series. Salomon’s XT Wings 3 has three key updates that will significantly benefit trail runners. The new design of Salomon’s Contragrip outsole gives the XT Wings 3 enhanced traction on wet surfaces and increased durability. Salomon’s design team improved the geometry of the ACS chassis throughout the midsole. The ACS chassis still provides the stability benefits but offers more flexibility during transition. The upper of the XT Wings 3 is also less bulky and nearly seamless. Salomon uses a welted upper design, reducing weight while adding in protection with a rubber toe cap. Jeff from Salomon discusses the XT Wing 3 with RunningShoes. Below are spec differences between the XT Wings 2 and XT Wings 3:
