Salomon raises the bar for year round run-hike performance. Salomon, the innovative mountain sports brand, announces the latest version of the iconic XA PRO 3D. With features for year-round comfort, the XA PRO 3D ULTRA 2 GTX® continues Salomon’s lineage of setting the standard for run-hike performance with stability, comfort and protection.

“Having established a benchmark for run-hike performance, making improvements to the XA PRO was no easy task”, explains Jeff Dill, Footwear product manager at Salomon. “But we made this shoe a little more streamlined in profile, redesigned the outsole with more aggressive grip and improved durability, and designed a unique way to incorporate GORE-TEX®. We are really excited about this new XA Pro.”

That GORE-TEX® design feature is a unique, patented EVA Strobel construction. The membrane is attached to a liner of EVA, providing greater comfort to the waterproof, breathable properties of GORE-TEX®. Year round climate comfort combined with Salomon fit and performance.

XA PRO 3D ULTRA 2 GTX® has set the standard for run hike performance with technical features that have been copied by many, equaled by none. Sensifit upper with Quicklace means a snug, efficient fit adjustment even on the fl y. 3D Advanced Chassis is stable on rough terrain, while reducing shock for highly active hiking and running, and the updated sole has more aggressive, more durable lugs on the tread, ensuring confidence on any surface.

Whether your fast hike includes some running, or your run includes some rough, technical scrambling, XA PRO 3D ULTRA 2 GTX® is the shoe that sets the standard for performance and fit.
