The iSpike upper is made with a lightweight durable ripstop fabric that features a soft mesh lining to keep you warm at low temperatures. The exterior is simplified, a shell design to keep out any snow or ice that might melt or cause discomfort. The toe box features a reinforced area – the IceShield – made in durable PU with a microfiber backing. The lacing area consists of a fully integrated ExoSkeleton™ in the shape of four webbings on each side that locks the foot down creating a firm fit. Combined with Salming’s Wool Sock, with its ergonomic fit and thermal functions – you are ready to go.
The unique outsole is developed utilizing the new and revolutionary Vibram LiteBASE technology that allows for a thinner and lighter outsole construction, minimizing weight by some 30%. In this case, the Litebase comes with Vibram’s critically acclaimed Megagrip (present on the award-winning Salming Trail5) compound which characteristics are a sticky and very long lasting compound that provides excellent grip on wet, muddy, slippery surfaces as well as dry rocky surfaces.
Integrated into the compound there are 13 virtually indestructible tungsten carbide tip studs that dig into the ice, snow, mud or gravel, and provides excellent traction. To prove our point, we took the iSpike to the most extreme of icy circumstances – the ice hockey rink – please access www.salmingrunning.com to see more. Point is, if it performs well here, it will perform during your winter runs as well.
