Sense Mantra Trail Running Shoe (Men's)
Product Number: 32266
The men's Salomon Sense Mantra is a neutral, minimalist trail running shoe with an ultralight weight and a world-class pedigree. It's based on Kilian Jornet's custom S-LAB Salomon Sense, worn for winning the 2011 Western States 100, and meets the demands of trail runners with a mid-foot strike who prefer a natural motion shoe and increased trail feel.
Salomon opines that the Sense Mantra is friendlier for everyday trail running than the original Sense, with more cushioning and rock protection than the original. Indeed, with a bit more underfoot, the Sense Mantra is right at home as a high-mileage training shoe. Make no mistake, however: at a mere 9.2 ounces, this is still a legit race-day shoe for fast, efficient trail runners.
Compared to Kilian's original S-LAB Sense, the Sense Mantra features a stack height of 10mm in the forefoot and 16mm in the heel, instead of 9mm/13mm, for a heel drop of 6mm. The shift from 4mm to 6mm provides slightly more support for ultramarathon distances, while continuing to firmly embrace its minimal nature.
A low drop promotes a mid-foot running stride, allowing the body to move naturally through the gait cycle without transferring as much shock to the joints as traditional running footwear. Midfoot striking also promotes better balance, agility and – ultimately -- better efficiency, whether you’re running a 5k, 50k or 100-miler.
Dynamic traction outsole provides maximum traction on dry surfaces, yet includes plenty of lugs for stability in mud. OS Tendon provides energy return during push-off. ProFeel film protects from rock bruising without sacrificing flexibility. EndoFIT internal fit sleeve hugs the forefoot. Sockless fit construction allows use with or without socks.
