When starting trail running or when you are on a short run near to your home, you will sometimes find yourself running on relatively flat terrain involving sections of road. So, to accompany you on your first trail runs or as a spare pair of shoes for your short runs, we suggest the TR: a trail running shoe that delivers the cushioning you need as soon as you leave home, on trail running paths as well as on roads.
For added flexibility, the sole of the TR has flex grooves along its entire length: this facilitates your foot motion. The rubber of the sole provides more grip. And with the 4 mm lugs, running on sections of road remains comfortable. The drop of sole is 10 mm. There is also a lace pocket so that the laces don't get in the way when you are running. Finally, the TR is lightweight: weighing 310 g in size 9, it is recommended for trail runners weighing up to 80 kg.
Kalensole is the EVA foam used in the midsole. It took three years of research to create this exclusive composition that improves cushioning by 34%, propulsion by 25% and provides better temperature stability and durability!What about the CS? The Circular System is composed of a bubble of air contained in the foam at the heel. This spreads the shockwave more effectively and more evenly in this area of the foot.
Exclusive Kalenji technology that makes our shoes suitable for every stride type thanks to the denser foam located under the first metatarsus. This innovative technology is the result of a six-month study with a sample of 372 runners conducted by the Luxembourg Institute of Health*. After 12,558 training sessions, 12,094 hours and 116,723 km of running, the study demonstrated that the K-Only technology suits all types of strides, whether pronating, neutral or under-pronating.
After numerous laboratory tests and several prototypes, our design team tested the TR in real-life conditions on the trail running route of the Côte d'Opale, in midwinter. The result is a multi-purpose comfortable trail running shoe that will eat up the miles. What's more, it was voted shoe of the year in 2018 by Endurance Trail magazine in the Road To Trail category.
Here is the advice of Marc, our designer, and Thierry, our product manager, for starting trail running: "you need to work hard and, above all, take one step at a time, not cut corners and adopt a regular routine. In the end, you will be rewarded when you get out onto some nice trails as you will be prepared to make the most of them."
In order to maintain your shoes and absorb any residual humidity between 2 running sessions, stuff your shoes with some newspaper.
This shoe has been tested on a wide range of distances and terrains by many male and female runners. The shoe has also undergone a series of mechanical tests in the lab.
