Spidey suit? Not quite. This is Salomon at its best.
Salomon Running has always sought to serve the needs of runners who traverse mountains, push limits and charge harsh terrain. Identified primarily with trail running, Salomon is recognized in the wider running industry for challenging norms both in aesthetics and technical features. True to this nature, Salomon launched EXO Sensifit in 2010, a totally innovative apparel line with performance benefits unique to runners.
The EXO Sensifit Collection is easily identified by a grid-like pattern, which is both cutting edge and daring. It is this honeycomb overlay (shown left) that provides everything from postural control to compression benefits to heightened mobility. The line includes a variety of shorts, tights, tops and calf sleeves.
Like all of Salomon’s products, EXO has been athlete-designed and tested. The designs are often flashy and intense, and have been championed around the world by elite runner and Salomon-sponsored athlete Killian Jornet.
This fall’s collection is highlighted by the Salomon EXO Motion XR Tight (men’s and women’s) and EXO XR ½ Zip Long Sleeve Tech Tee (men’s and women’s) pictured above. Skin-fitted and offered in bold colors, this EXO Motion outfit is the premium choice for runners seeking warmth, light compression and total range of motion. (Click on images for larger view)
Three categories exist within EXO Sensifit:
- The EXO Stability products (available in Spring) are strategically designed to minimize the wear and tear on the body that is inevitable with running. Focused support encourages optimal alignment, lasting posture and efficiency, thus minimizing muscle breakdown and soreness.
- The EXO Agility line is all about support. Polyurethane overlays on high impact zones stabilize muscles and reduce damage while running, so that athletes can have greater endurance and accelerated recoveries. The men’s and women’s EXO IV ¾ Tight (pictured above and right) are examples of Salomon’s EXO Agility line.
- The EXO Motion products (pictured top and bottom), on the other hand, are all about comfort, freedom and swift movement. The designs provide a soft, supple and seamless feel that moves with the body. The EXO pattern also provides light muscle support.
