Salomon has provided some nifty information on “City Trails” and now they have a shoe to back it up. The Salomon S-Lab X-Series has a similar feel to the S-Lab Sense 3 Ultra, but it is definitely geared more to the road.
The Contragrip in the sole is excellent for making tight turns and I wouldn’t anticipate any slipping. In fact, the sole is my favorite thing about the shoe! The shoe is excellent quality and has a stylish design.
The shoe has a 23mm heel and a 15mm forefoot – an 8mm drop.
It uses the Salomon quicklace system for easy adjustments.
The size 10 weighed in at 8.6 ounces. I thought it felt similiar to my current road racing shoe. It’s actually .4 ounces lighter!
